It delivers 19.3 PS of power at 10,000 rpm and 14.7 Nm of torque at 8,500 rpm.

The fuel tank can hold 11 litres of juice and the bike weighs 131 kg.

The new V-Ixion was launched in the country earlier this year, and the V-Ixion R is the sportier variant. According to Yamaha Motor’s 2016 survey, the Indonesian motorcycle market has a total scale of 5.6 million units, out of which approximately 10% are sports models. Yamaha plans to tap into this market with its latest offering and is targeting youth in their 20s.
