R15 v4 front pics have come up on the internet that reveal the face for the first time. It has clear inspiration from the bigger R7!
As Yamaha continues to test its next big surprise for India – the new R15 version 4, we have its new spy pics that have surfaced. In all the images that have emerged so far, the face of the motorcycle was not clear.
However, in this latest set, we can clearly notice how has the upcoming sportster been styled. As you can see, the new R15’s front is a big departure from the existing split headlamp design. It has a very clear resemblance with the new design language that has evolved from the recent R7.
There is one single projector headlamp at the center along with eye-like DRLs on either sides. This should give it an even more aggressive face than the current version. Just look at the following pic and the motorcycle appears to be bigger with a greater road presence!
The visor now appears to start from just over the headlamp cut-out and extend all the way back. The rear view mirrors may also be bolted on it.
The latest pics also confirm the presence of upside-down front forks for India (since this mule is from our country). This is a clear indication that Yamaha may be planning to go the whole hog this time with its popular sportster.
In all probability, there will be an updated instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity and smartphone pairability. And as we have discussed earlier, Japs do not take a lot of time for launch, hence, we believe this is coming very soon – most probably by September-October!
