Yamaha Motor India have introduced the YZF-R15 Version 3.0 MotoGP Limited Edition variant priced at Rs 1.3 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The limited-edition Yamaha YZF-R15 v3.0 is made available in the ‘Yamaha Racing Blue’ colour and dons the Yamaha MotoGP decals on the fairing, tank and side panels. The bike tries to imitate the visuals of the Yamaha YZR-M1 MotoGP bike which is raced by world champions including the legendary Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales. With these cosmetic updates the Japanese motorcycle maker hopes to add some more excitement to their popular 150-cc motorcycle.
The Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 3.0 MotoGP Limited Edition remains mechanically unchanged and continues to be powered by the 155 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor that produces 19.3 PS and 15 Nm, which comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. With the new racing decals and body colour, the MotoGP Limited Edition demands a premium of Rs 3,000 over the standard Yamaha YZF-R15 v3.0, which is priced at Rs 1.27 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Being a limited-edition model just 4,000 units are being offered and, when this story was written, 34 units of the YZF-R15 Version 3.0 MotoGP Limited Edition were already booked.
