Wooohoooo!! Awesome. It sure is bye-bye for the 220. But I'm not convinced about the price.

Anyway, after buying the bike, remove the fairing and side body kit and make it a naked bike with a big YZF150 decal on the side. Zoom past the other higher cc bikes and see the look on the riders' face!!

Kudos Yamaha!!!

Sounds like total speculation to me. The R125 makes 15PS and no way you get 7 bhp from 25 cc bump....and why would they not call it an R150.

Wowwwww, those specs looks killer.

I have been on the lookout of a good bike since a long long time. Almost zeroed on the 220 but it has many problems, was just gonna settle for a Karizma but now waiting for the expo.

If its a V Twin then its possible to get 22bhp from the engine.

I switched over from Xbhp because every other month, there was news of another super new bike from Yamaha/honda/Suzuki, which never happened.

To be frank, I'll wait till the expo before expressing anything. These japanese giants promise loads and offer little!

Tell me about it. Remember the Gladiator concept and the joke of a production version?
