The YZF-R15 wil be the aboriginal motorcycle in India with six apparatus afterwards the old admirable Yamaha RD 350. Good that the new one too is advancing from Yamaha. Afterwards the iconic Yamaha RX 100 which came to India in the 90s (or was it afore that?) Yamaha has consistently managed to comedy the breadth bold instead of the achievement game. The new administration is what anybody has been cat-and-mouse for from Yamaha. Forget the six apparatus the greatest affair about the Yamaha YZF R15 is its looks. Very like the Yamaha R1 superbike, which is additionally now accessible in India anyhow as a aerial priced flagship motorcycle. The Yamaha YZF-R15 was apparent to the Indian pubic for the aboriginal time at the Auto Expo. And it took the aggregate animation of India's motoring columnist away.The YZF-R15 is India's aboriginal actually faired motorcycle. So far the abutting we accept appear to a abounding allowance in India is the Karizma and the Pulsar models which accept that bisected fairing. But the actually faired YZF-R15 can accomplish the Karizma and Pulsar models pee in their fairings.
This one is appealing abundant international, acutely able-bodied advised and get this there will be a little allotment of artificial that will fit snugly over the rear bench giving your r15 motorcycle that single-seater look. What abroad accept we got? You get a animate Deltabox twin-spar frame, agenda speedometer and tachometer, tubeless tyres, clip-on handlebars.
You accept the abutting arrangement six acceleration gearbox, 150ccs, aqueous cooling, and a massive 18-22 bhp (massive by Indian standards). The 4-valve agent will use ammunition injection, and you get both discharge anchorage and ability too. Stopping ability is provided by the distinct disc brakes in advanced and back. Advanced abeyance is traditional, but you accept a monoshock at the back. And them best important agency price. No official abstracts accept been accustomed so far, but rumors say it would amount Rs 90,000 max on-road in Delhi add a brace of bags added for Mumbai. What are the negatives that ability edge in by the time the YZF-R15 hits the road?
For one the amount ability be higher. That would be a dampener for many. Two, apprehend Hero Honda and Bajaj Auto to try and out-punch the Yamaha YZF-R15 both in amount and power. If Yamaha can actually administer a amount of 90,000 on alley for a 18-22 bhp motorcycle, abiding Bajaj and Hero Honda too can do the same. And that ability abduct a bit of the the YZF-R15's thunder. No matter, we don't anticipate they will calmly bout the R1-esque looks of the YZF-R15. Apprehend account on the final appraisement and barrage dates by June-July 2008. After the big account of the accessible barrage of the Yamaha YZF-R15, about annihilation abroad seems woth your while and again you see the Yamaha FZ. Added than a decade back, I rode about on the streets f Mumbai, shit-scared, on a BMW F650 Funduro. The bike amount added than 4 lakhs, and was an amateur adversity back it came to sales. But it had a attitude which reminded Mumbaikars of a horse and calm a army wherever I anchored it. The Yamaha FZ they alarm it a ancestor reminded me of the F650 with its blush arrangement and cocked stance. But the FZ looks added avant-garde for sure. Yamaha says that the FZ is aloof a prototype. Nobody in the motoring columnist believes them. Chances are, this 150 cc air-cooled motorcycle will accomplish it into assembly appear the end of 2008.
You accept basically the aforementioned agent as the YZF-R15 Yamaha on this motorcycle, but this is added a road-and-track motorcycle than the YZF, which has antagonism pretensions alike in the 150 cc guise. So what you accept is a motorcycle that will booty on the Pulsars directly, and will allure the owners of the approved econo-miser 150 cc motorcycles. The Yamaha FZ will hav a 5-speed gearbox which will put some 16-18 bp on the alley abundant to become the achievement 150cc king. The accepted amount (absolutely unconfirmed, and based on rumors, etc etc) is Rs 70,000 on-road in Delhi.
