Yamaha India has finally confirmed the launch of the new R15 for the 6th of September, 2011. The company has sent out a media invite for the launch of the R15 version 2.0. The company asks the media to come and ‘experience a machine redesigned to change your perception of style and design forever.’ We have already speculated and spoken alot about the new Yamaha R15 which gets slight change at the front and heavy changes to the rear (LED tail lamps, split seats and wider rear tyre). A slight increase in power is expected for the R15 V2, helping Yamaha to counter the increased weight and rolling resistance of the new model.
Yamaha has increased the local sourcing of components with the new R15 and we can expect a very competitive pricing for the upgraded R15. We will be attending the launch event and getting you all the information straight from the launch floor. If you have any questions which you want us to ask, please leave it below and we will try our level best to ask the Yamaha management your question.
