Yamaha R15 V2.0 has always been a show – stopper wherever it is kept for display at we don’t have to say the amount of attention it would have grasped in the Auto Expo 2012. The bikes were literally glittering owing to its frequent polishing and the lights which were focused onto it.
The R15 V2.0 is presently available in just here colors viz, Racing Blue, Midnight Black and he Sunset Red. Though the previous version of the bike was available in two other additional color of yellow and white, Version 2 was limited just with 3 colors of skins and that’s it.
Yamaha now has a very pleasant good news to all the R15 lovers. The bike is now made available in additional two color schemes and the best part is that both these sexy looking bikes are now part of limited edition series. It always becomes a matter of pride to own bikes which are part of limited editions, right? The two new schemes are Fiery Red, which is jaw – dropping good with all new set of body graphics and the other one being White, which resembles the previous version but looks even more good as it wraps the V2.0.
The Fiery Red scheme is engulfed by fire flame design in form of graphics which begins flowing right from the front fairing and continues its flow till the rear. Brilliant work! Though it lacks the racing instinct in this all new color scheme, I became a big fan of it, the moment I took a look at it in the Yamaha stall in the Auto expo.
Talking about the new White color, it is just stunning in its looks, though it looks simple and humble unlike the other color of this bike. The bike is completely painted in white with just a mild pinch of red stickering here and there without making it a red over – dose. The small rise in seat which appears between the rider’s and the pillion seat is coated with red which adds up the gorgeousness of the bike many – folds.
Here is what Mr. Hiroyuki Suzuki, CEO & MD, India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd., said generically about Yamaha in the stall. “Yamaha has always been a committed player in the two-wheeler market and makes consistent efforts to adapt to market demand by launching exciting products year-on-year. The Indian scooter segment is growing tremendously and we see a lot of potential in this segment. We have developed a scooter prototype that has got the Yamaha DNA and signifies “Cool and Beauty” image, which are the right words for describing young Indian girls. With the launch of our scooter model later this year, Yamaha would now be present across all growing 2-Wheeler segments.”
“On behalf of India Yamaha family, I extend our gratitude towards our loyal customers and channel partners who have played a key role in our consistent growth in India over the years. We’d like to reinforce our commitment to the Indian market with our investment plans of Rs. 800 crores over the next two years and are targeting to achieve total sales of 1 million units in 2013”, he then added.
These two color schemes are priced at INR. 1,10,000 (Ex – Showroom Delhi) which is just marginally higher than the regular models and this small hike is worth every penny considering the attention which these 2 bikes will be able to get you.
So guys, are you all on your feet to run to the nearest showroom to get your hands on one of these bikes. On your Mark, Get, Set &Go!
