I am now rather sick of these so called "new R15" scoops of Yamaha.

In fact, I now appreciate Honda announcing CBR250 with clear specifications a few months prior to the launch.

These so called "teasers" have become rather boring and excitement about the new bike is already fizzling out. Yamaha either now comes out clean on what they are going to launch, or stop releasing such stupid teasers every month, which is what they are doing since last 7-8 months.

I wonder if Yamaha will meet the same fate of that naughty boy guarding his sheep from wolf.

That's nothing.. People are used to this great "Yamaha-India" strategy.. They have been developing a scooter for the Indian market ever since they took over Escorts. It takes time na? Its been just 10 years

Breaking of the Yamaha R1X rumor bubble bursting. It is indeed the upgraded R15. Glad that the thread name remained at R15 !

The emblem/logo on the exhaust adds a really nice touch to the bike!

I agree. Waiting to look at the whole package. The spy pics looks pretty enthralling.

Well that's where it took the inspiration from and to my perspective, they have done a good job in replicating it to a smaller bike keeping the proportions on although I agree a bump in power would definitely do good. It is yet to be seen how it presents itself in real.

No offense but tail-end could have been little more proportionate and I think R6 style short-exhaust would have looked better than the traditional one... but still a stunner (Not the Honda one)

I guess the last word on the design will be more applicable when we see it in flesh although I agree it could definitely be better and yes a stunner at the first look.

The bike looks awesome! Love the new rear end! I would get rid of the rear mud-guard though, looks strange. Or atleast make it smaller like the one on the R6.

Where is the saree guard?

Guys,
any idea if the ad-shoot at kari speedway is done already? then we could expect to see teasers being aired in TV.

Look around and there already are few new pics floating around from the race track.

Abhishek.
