Yamaha has unveiled and launched Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition models of its select motorcycle and scooters in the Indonesian market. The list includes the 2019 Yamaha Aerox, YZF-R15 V3.0, YZF-R25, Vixion and MX-King. Earlier this month, the company had revealed the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition variant of the YZF-R125.
From all the models that received the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP models, the YZF-R15 V3.0 is particularly interesting as it may be launched in India. Regular readers would know that Yamaha had introduced the MotoGP livery for the YZF-R15 V3.0 in the country in August last year.
The Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition has a dual-tone finish. Majority of the body panels get black paint, while the fairing and top of the fuel tank carry blue highlights. The Monster Energy branding and logos occupy the space on the front fender, fascia and the fairing. Apart from Monster Energy, the motorcycle is also seen with ENEOS and Yamalube decals. The design and the equipment list, which includes full LED headlight, tail lamp and digital instrument console, is the same.
The Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition seen here is equipped with upside-down telescopic front forks and an aluminium swingarm. If launched in India, it will feature conventional telescopic forks at the front and the box-type swingarm that is seen on the regular Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 in the country. The engine, too, will be the same 155 cc liquid-cooled, 4-valve, FI unit with variable valve actuation (VVA) technology that generates 19 bhp of power at 10,000 rpm and 15 Nm of torque at 8,500 rpm. It will be coupled to a 6-speed gearbox with slip & assist clutch. The safety net will include dual-channel ABS as standard, while the stopping power will come from a single disc brake on both wheels.
If launched, expect the YZF-R15 V3.0 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition to retail at around the same price levels as the standard YZF-R15 V3.0 ABS. Currently, the 155 cc motorcycle from Yamaha India Motors is available in Thunder Grey, Racing Blue and Darknight colour options. The Thunder Grey and Racing Blue paint options are available for INR 1,39,680*, while the Darknight colour retails at INR 1,41,680*.
The Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition has been priced at Rp 36,360,000 (approximately INR 1.78 lakh) in Indonesia.
