We got the following comment on a previous post about the spied 2012 Yamaha R15. The comment seems to have come from Yamaha India itself and seems to be authentic. However we don’t know that yet. Here’s what they commented…
“The all new R15 (code name as of now) will be launched next year at Delhi Auto Expo 2012. Pre bookings start in December. We have slightly changed the asthetics of the bike and given the engine a slight punch of 22PS along with a revamped ECU unit to compensate the increased weight of the bike .The bike seems to be more stable and quick now. We will not reveal other specifications as of now.
2 variants of the bike will be available: ABS version at 1.3Lakhs (ex-showroom) and non-ABS version at 1.10Lakhs (ex-showroom).
Currently we are testing both ABS and non-ABS variants and we promise to unveil the best performance out of the bike. Also, we are trying our very best to clear the last production stock of the discontinued R15 by September 2011 and may also prepone the bookings for the new Variant.
