Priced at IDR 32.8 million.
TMC Blog has shared photos of a Special Edition Yamaha R15 ahead of its launch in Indonesia. The reported price of the new model is IDR 32.8 million (INR 1.67 lakhs) while the standard version sells at IDR 29.8 million (INR 1.52 lakhs) and the one with the MotoGP livery is priced at IDR 30.4 million (INR 1.55 lakhs).
The trims appears to be the same as the one being sold in India (2016 model year R15) named Sparky Green and Adrenaline Red. They have a grey base colour on which green or red mixed graphics are applied on the respective variants. It is likely that Indonesia will receive these versions of the R15 as replacement of the standard variants, just like the case in India.
There is no mechanical change in the Indian 2016 Yamaha R15. It continues to be powered by the same 149 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine with SOHC and FI that produces 16.5 PS at 8,500 rpm and 14.5 Nm at 7,500 rpm, mated to a six-speed transmission. It is to be noted that the Indonesian version of the R15 is tuned to develop 0.5 PS less maximum power and 0.5 Nm less peak torque than the Indian model.
