Yamaha have come up with a new version of Yamaha YZF-R15 in terms of colors and graphics. This new makeover adds a punch to the sporty looks of the bike. However there has been no change in any other aspects of the, other specifications of the bikes remain the same.
The Yamaha YZF R15 is now available in four new colors namely “Impact Yellow”, “Midnight black”, “Sunset Red” and “Racing Blue.”
Yamaha has introduced the much desired yellow color which I’m sure will boost up the sales of this bike, till now some of the dealers used to paint the bike in yellow on the customer’s demand charging a few extra Ks for the paint job.
Apart from the new Yellow color, the tone of the red color has also been changed and is different from the previous red color. Similarly there is a slight difference between the black and blue colors from their previous variants. The red colored bike now also has the side flaps of the same color. The previous version had the black side flaps. The Yellow color has white colored side flaps and the paint quality is very good on it.
Now lets come to the graphics of the bike. All the three colors except for the Blue one enjoys the newly designed graphics which are somewhat based upon the theme of YZF-R125.
There is a new design on the side flaps which extends to the tank of the bike. There is a new R15 sticker above the left headlamp as you can see in the pictures(I’m not sure if the new blue color also has it). The similar styling is present on the YZF R125 as well.
Yamaha has also provided the rim stripe tape in the Yellow, red and black bikes( the black bike has white colored rim stripe tapes). The cost of this bike is around Rs 2,000 higher than the previous version.
