Confirmed power figures for the R15:

- 17ps (16.8bhp) @ 8500rpm
- 15Nm @ 7500rpm
-120kgs


This should put the bike on par with the CBR150RR.

The press release should be out tomorrow.

Haha. And we were dreaming about 22 and 24 BHP and what not. These BHP figures are as good as my P180.

Now that the potential-Superbike-owners will be put off by these figures, guess only those who wish to flaunt their bike (Like those with twin headlamps etc) will def go for this bike

hehehe...dont be fooled by values on paper. This will blow away any other bike in the market forget p180. Thats like saying the CBR150RR is as good as a P180....that couldnt be farther from the truth.

I'd recommmed riding it first before forming an opinion.

Sir, i think we should wait for the test reports, that would give a clearer picture of the bike's capabilities.

Come on! The R-15 costs almost twice as much as a P180, and looks are enough to buy the bike. Comparing the two is not at all fair, and its like chalk and cheese. But plainly, these figures are really disappointing!

I am not really trying to compare the R15 and the P180. I just am really disappointed at the way the figures look atleast. There might be some technology going on inside the bike and all that jazz. But at the end of the day, we Indians have to be just content with what the manufacturers throw at us. What we expect is not what we get!!

Someone mentioned that there won't be any test rides for this. So how can we ride first and then decide

Cant say that!
Power-to-weight ratio matters
plus, its based more on a performance bike, Lets wait for some road tests before deciding the bike!

Thumbs down It is official - 17 PS :-(

Guys..
I checked out the Yamaha website - The R15 related details are out. The bike is indeed 17 PS . I am very disappointed... I'll need to check out the price if I really need to buy this. Will wait for baby Ninja if it is priced > 1L

I guess sales of this bike will then be restricted solely to know-nothing show offs and die-hard track animals.

Guys, before you go awww its only 17 bhp, remember its power to weight is still going to be pretty amazing.
Moreover, its performance under different weather conditions will be much more consistent than on the other indian bikes because of the liquid cooling and FI.
And, 6 speed gearbox. Mamma mia!

I would still say I'm a bit dissapointed with them not giving us more power on the bike. I know our poor quality fuels might be a cause for this, but to this extent?
A shout to Yamaha: At this price, Mileage does NOT matter!!!

Lol! On the Yamaha website, the Kerb weight is referred to as "Curb Weight"

Maybe a message to teh prospective riders?

Will be a rocket for sure coz of power to weight ratio. Pulsar weighs 150kgs?
