A yamaha R1 with huge tyres and 1000cc engine is 175 kg's dry... I wouldnt be surprised if this is 120 kgs.

Different parts bin make a big difference. They wont be manufacturing the R15 with those light weight materials etc as R1 has for sure.

But if it indeed is true, then its a rocket!

Vabs,

I have a friend who works for Yamaha Motors who tested R15 in April 08.
He had then tested 2 versions of the bike one with 23 BHP which was very difficult to control and the other with 21bhp which was good .
He told me he went upto 148kmph with the 21bhp.
I hope the specs he gave me were true

Here are some pics

I hope what you said is true and hope the 17 bhp & 1.05 lakh thing is a hoax.
I was looking forward to buying this one, if it were 22 bhp and around 80K.

They can prolly launch the 23 bhp one with a broader rear tyre as a sports model

Well I dont know about the bhp part but the pricing surely is not a hoax. The advertisement board outside the yamaha showroom says that booking for R15 is open and the price is around 1 lakh, so 1.05 lakh surely seems like the right news.

Typical question asked to any new bike owner on Indian roads, "Boss, average kya hai?". With petrol prices going through the roof expect this question to be asked with increasing regularity!!
I have heard rumours of the bike delivering an average between 35-40, which in my opinion, is very good for the specs the bike is offering

Thanks very much for those links. The first time, hearing the R15 firing up. Surprisingly, it sounds very unrefined for a Yamaha.

But what is expected, is its road presence in the highway. Its a class apart from anything on Indian roads!
