The Yamaha R15 V2 you see here has been heavily-modified by Kunal Custom Design and the sportbike is now loaded with a long list of features, leaving even concept cars behind with advanced sensors and first-in-class equipment. The modifier has equipped the 2nd-generation Yamaha R15 with high-tech features like keyless ignition and fingerprint security system.

Apart from the button, the electric starter can now also be operated through a connected smartphone and even the infotainment display on the motorcycle. The instrument console has been mounted on the handlebar while empty space under the visor has been filled with a 6.9-inch display with an independent fingerprint sensor and battery health display. The infotainment display also supports touch inputs.

Modified R15 Video (Part 1)

Once the owner places his finger on the scanner, the mirrors automatically retract from the closed position. This modified Yamaha R15 V2 even features a rearview camera while the front comes with an Autologue-inspired fairing that covers the headlight portion in such a way that the motorcycle gets an edgy and aggressive look.

Kunal Custom Design has installed projector headlights and LED indicators that also act as emergency lights when a button is pressed. The motorcycle also features an anti-theft alarm, navigation system, notification for the calls, voice control and instructions. Not just that, the rider has fitted a sensor to help the headlights achieve automatic high/low beam function. Another great feature of this modified Yamaha R15 V2 is a cruise control system.

Modified R15 Video (Part 2)

The complete wiring has been modified to achieve mobile control and complicated systems like fingerprint start and cruise control. The cost of modification is not exactly known as the modifier roughly calculated the raw material cost (not including the cost of the wires) to be over INR 20,000. The motorcycle has a unique wrap on the body, flaunting faux carbon fibre finish on most parts to add visual enhancement to this typical Yamaha R15 V2.

The 2020 Kawasaki Ninja 125 has been officially unveiled in the United Kingdom. The brand has not yet revealed the pricing details for the MY2020 variant, though one can expect it to get a slight increase in comparison to the MY2019 version which is priced at £3799 (INR 3.41 lakhs, approx.).

In terms of looks, there are no major changes and the 2020 model of the Ninja 125 continues to feature a single front headlight that is completely inspired by the quarter-litre Kawasaki SL range. Even the exhaust design is similar to the muffler seen on Ninja 250 SL. Apart from that, the design lines and sticker pattern is highly inspired by the bigger Ninja models.

The MY2020 Ninja 125 will be available in three colour schemes – Lime Green/Ebony (KRT Edition), Metallic Flat Stardust White/Metallic Flat Spark Black, and Metallic Spark Black/Metallic Flat Spark Black. The 11-litre fuel tank is good enough to provide a respectable range for a bike with a 125cc single-cylinder engine. Kawasaki Ninja 125 measures 1935mm in length, 685mm in width and 1075mm in height. The wheelbase measures 1330mm while the ground clearance stands at 170mm.

The 125cc engine is liquid-cooled and fuel-injected, producing a maximum power of 15HP @ 10,000 rpm and a peak torque of 11.7 Nm @ 7,700 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The 2020 Kawasaki Ninja 125 is equipped with conventional front telescopic suspension measuring 37mm and the sportbike also features a clip-on handlebar for improved control over closed circuits or track-specific events. You can click here for complete specifications of the Ninja 125.

As of now, Kawasaki has no plans to launch the Ninja 125 in India, though the brand may consider it for our market in the future. As RC 125 has worked wonders for KTM, similarly, Kawasaki may also start manufacturing the Ninja 125 in India and launch it with a price tag of around INR 1.50-1.60 lakh (ex-showroom), plus they can also export the same to the nearby countries.

The brand had replaced the old Yamaha R3 in 2018 in the international markets, though India is yet to receive the updated version of the sports bike. Some reports suggest that the 2020 model of the bike will be officially launched in India after 3-4 months with a BS6-compliant engine.

Powering the BS4 Yamaha YZF-R3 is a 321cc liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 42HP @ 10,750 rpm and a peak torque of 29.6 Nm @ 9,000 rpm. The mid-cycle update offered to the YZF-R3 back in 2018 rewarded it with a new design language based on the Yamaha YZR-M1 MotoGP sports bike.

The brand has offered the 2020 model of the bike with a fully-digital instrument panel while the split LED headlights add to the sportier appeal further.

Since now the BS6 emission norms will be valid in the country from April 1, 2020, the production of the motorcycle has been officially discontinued by the brand and the motorcycle will not be updated with a BS6-compliant engine.

The Honda CBR250R will not be available across dealerships from next month while the customers can still get their hands on the BS4 variant of the sports bike before March 31, 2020, only if the stock remains at the dealerships. The CBR250R was offered a BS4 engine update in 2018 in addition to getting two new colour schemes as well as an LED headlight setup.

In recent times, the motorcycle has been unable to get major audience support due to the lack of features in comparison to the latest 250cc sportbikes like the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250. The almost negligible demand of the motorcycle has forced the brand to discontinue the sports machine and not offer it a BS6-compliant engine.

The BS6 TVS Apache RTR 180 has been officially launched in India at a price tag of INR 1.01 lakh (ex-showroom). The updated motorcycle variant has been listed on the brand’s official website and is expected to take the racing dynamics to an all-new level.

The brand has equipped the motorcycle with a Race-Tuned Fuel Injection technology that has optimised the performance of the motorcycle to an all-new degree. The updated motorcycle will now be available to the customers in four colour schemes namely Pearl White, Gloss Black, Matte Blue and T-Grey, which have been carried forward from its BS4 avatar while the brand has officially discontinued the Matte Red colour variant of the motorcycle that was available in the last-gen version.

Coming to the changes imparted to the BS6-compliant variant, the updated motorcycle features almost identical design language as well as the graphic details. The brand has further offered the motorcycle with an oil-cooled engine that makes the engine produce less heat when compared to the air-cooled unit.

In addition to this, the revised engine has further reduced the vibrations on the updated machine while the exhaust sound is now more refined. Coming to the semi-digital instrument console, the BS6 TVS Apache RTR 180 now features an engine malfunction indicator which turns on whenever the engine suffers any kind of fault.

In addition to this, the brand has offered the motorcycle with a side stand engine cut off switch which prevents the rider from starting the engine whenever the side stand is down. The brand has further removed the kick equipped on the BS4 variant of the motorcycle.

Powering the motorcycle is a BS6-compliant 180cc, oil-cooled engine that is now capable of offering maximum power of 16.8HP and a peak torque of 15.5Nm. The engine remains mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The power value of the motorcycle has been increased by 0.2HP when compared to the 16.6HP of maximum power offered by its BS4 counterpart though the torque figure remains the same.

The addition of a BS6-compliant engine is further expected to offer better mileage when compared to one offered by the BS4 unit though the top speed is expected to remain the same at 124 kmph. The recently launched BS6 Apache RTR 180 will compete in the market with the likes of Bajaj Pulsar 180F.
