Yamaha’s ‘The Call Of The Blue’ campaign aims at positioning the brand with its global appeal of racing.
The latest campaign from Yamaha is aimed to build up the exhilaration of racing as it introduces YZF-R15 Version 3.0 Moto GP Limited Edition model and FZS-FI with rear disc brake in two new colours. The prices are Rs. 3000/- and Rs. 1000/- more than the regular bikes respectively.
The introduction of the R15 V3 Moto GP Limited Edition in ‘Yamaha Racing Blue’ colour gets Yamaha Moto GP branding on the fairing, tank and side panels that outlines its R-DNA pedigree. It will be powered by the same engine as the regular R15 V3 which is a 155cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected motor that produces 19.03 HP at 10,000 RPM and a maximum 15 Nm of torque at 8500 RPM.
The bike comes with a 6-speed gearbox with slip and assist clutch to make the clutch feel lighter and make downshifts more fun.
Yamaha has also launched the Blue Core technology enabled FZS-FI with a rear disc in two new colours – Mattgreen and Darknight. Changes to this bike are also limited to only visuals and it mechanically remains the same. It is powered by a 149cc, air-cooled engine that is good for 13 HP at 8000 RPM and 12.8 Nm of peak torque at 6000 RPM. The Blue Core technology helps increasing combustion efficiency, increasing cooling efficiency and reducing power loss.
The price for the Yamaha YZF-R15 Moto GP Limited Edition is Rs. 1.30 lakhs, while that for the Blue Core technology enabled FZ-S FI Rear Disc is Rs. 87,042/- (both, ex-showroom, Delhi) which is marginally higher than the standard models but are well worth the additional price. Bookings for the YZF-R15 Moto GP Limited Edition have begun while deliveries will commence in September.
Meanwhile, Yamaha has also started delivering the newly launched Cygnus Ray ZR Street Rally edition through its authorised dealerships.
