Thats because the company has not released that info as yet. I searched all geographic sites of Yamaha. This seems to be a totally new bike specific for India. The YZF-R125 in UK, is 125CC and produces 15PS almost equal to 15bhp.

Somehow,the Gladiator seems to retain the typical lines similar to the Pulsar. The R15 seems like a big leap in the styling of the 150-200cc range.

This bike looks too cool. it would give the pulsars of this world a tough competition if released. it looks good to be just a proto, looks almost production ready. But, the website says its a proto

sabret00the you already have the 4 valve engine may be a good ignition system, carb with proper jetting n filter and over square size bore will easily give you the thrust of atleast 15-17 BHP.

Chennai and Bangalore is the place to pimp the engine, search for known tuners from these two places .You need to wait for some time and have to be in queue.
