New Yamaha R15 is mini R6 and Is cheaper too

The new 2011 Yamaha R15 was supposed to be launched in January itself, but now we are seeing some delays on the part of Yamaha. The reason for the delay is not known but now the bike is expected to be launched by February-March, 2011. But what we have from this month’s print edition of AutoCar India is pretty interesting to say the least. First of all, the 2011 Yamaha R15 is indeed coming and the best part of it all, if ACI is to be believed is the fact that, the 2011 Yamaha R15 will see a price cut of up to INR 10,000.  However the good news is, the company has given the R15 a revised front, which mimics that of the YZF-R6 superbike. A new front featuring headlights with aerodynamic fins similar to those found on the R6, along with split seats, LED tail lamps, wider rubber, engine with black treatment and 10 spoke alloy wheels. A boost in power is also on the cards, which according to rumours could go all the way to 20bhp.
