The customized R15 Version 3 you see here is the brand-loaded variant of Yamaha’s full-faired racer, bringing Ferrari, Motul, Monster and even Infiniti logo on the side fairing to keep up with the trend of branding. The motorcycle is based on Yamaha’s ‘Racing Blue’ shade and gets neon green highlights while the lowermost panel comes with Brembo, Michelin, and Akrapovic logo along with the Yamalube moniker. The performance quotient remains stable as the standard forks and disc brakes with ABS stay unchanged on the model.

Restored Yamaha RD350 by ‘The Royal Restorers’: Yamaha RD350 is a prized possession for its owner in every manner. The popular 2-stroke bike was once the most powerful motorcycles for the Indian market, carrying a twin-cylinder 347cc engine that was good for 30.5 BHP at 6750 rpm and 32.3 Nm at 6500 rpm. This helped it claim the winning spot over the popular models like Royal Enfield Bullet and other RX models of its time. Finding one in a brand new condition is a rare possibility. ‘The Royal Restorers’ can help your wandering soul get some rest with their fully restored RD350.

The original bike was lost in the harsh hands of time, carrying rusted parts like bad rims, engine parts, exhaust and even both the fenders. The fuel tank had lost all its charm with excessive rust on all sides. The paint was even dead and carried no shine at all. It took a lot of effort for the restoration of this Yamaha RD350 as every single part was to be removed and then restored for the best effect. The bike was totally stripped down to bare bones and the work was started at full throttle. The engine was overhauled and tuned for better performance.

Every component was restored to the original condition, Chrome was reapplied over all the parts and the fuel tank has been finished in pure White. Yamaha moniker was placed proudly on both the sides while the engine was completely finished in Black and Chrome for added appeal. The Chrome wheels with all-new tyres looked stunning while both the fenders look even better than the ones used on present day bikes. It would be hard to guess the feelings of true Yamaha fan after having the glimpse of such a beautiful example of an RD350 in front of their eyes.

Unlike the one finished in White, two other RD350s were finished in Red and Black respectively. The Royal Restorers would need around 45 days to turn a regular rusted RD350 into this superb motorcycling marvel. The precision in their work can be seen within every bit of these three motorcycles. Choosing a shade is more of a personal opinion but looking at that perfectly finished White RD350 will definitely take many riders back into the era of 2-stroke riding. The cost estimations will vary with the needs of the customer.

Yamaha Motor India is taking up an initiative of organising a pre-monsoon checkup camp across select dealerships in the country. The company is doing so to let customers be prepared for the impending monsoon. The brand understands that during a heavy downpour the roads get flooded with water and it can put the rider in a problem while riding the motorcycle. The pre-monsoon checkup camp by the company will include a 14-point checklist to ensure the bike/cooter is running perfectly and is good enough to tackle the rainy season.

The company is also offering certain discounts on labour charges and genuine parts. The vehicles which need servicing during this time will also be benefitted by these camps as they too will come under discounts provided by the company. Also, Yamaha has recently started an accessory campaign for the MT-15. Under this campaign, the customers who own an MT-15 would be eligible for a free MT-branded jacket or an ISI-certified helmet.

The Senior Vice President, Strategy and Planning, Yamaha Motors India Sales Pvt.

While Yamaha vehicles are equipped with minimal risk features, the check-up camps will help to further enhance the overall riding experience during the rainy season. A safe-riding experience, particularly during monsoon will come along with discounts on selected assortments of genuine parts and accessories from Yamaha.”

The association of Yamaha with Monster Energy has resulted in five special edition models for the Indonesian market. The first product is slightly familiar, known by the name R15 V3 and getting just two changes in the Indian market. The R15 Monster Energy Edition in Indonesia is available with USD forks and aluminium rear footpeg holders along with the special livery. For those who love quarter-litre machines, Yamaha has brought the new R25 with USD forks and all the updated features to the Monster Energy list. The model is also available with a 321cc (R3) engine worldwide.

The Indonesia-exclusive Vixion, MX King and Aerox 155 are the three remaining products that went forward with the Monster Energy special edition livery. All of them share the huge M moniker on the panels along with black gloss base paint and blue inserts. The working parts are similar to the stock models while no performance upgrade has been given to the products with special branding.

Yamaha R15 V3 Monster Energy

The launch of the Yamaha R15 V3 Monster Energy edition in India is definitely possible. The sportbike is powered by a 155.1cc liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine. The most powerful production 155cc engine is good for 19.3 HP and 14.7 Nm of torque. The R15 V3 features assist and slipper clutch, VVA, six-speed gearbox, and many other segment-leading features.

The standard model of the R15 V3 is available in India for INR 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom). Indian market could get the Monster Energy edition based on the existing R15 V3 as Yamaha had earlier launched the MotoGP edition for a price jump of INR 2000. The Darknight Edition is currently available with the same price difference and expecting the R15 V3 Monster Energy edition to get a price tag of INR 1.42 lakh won’t be wrong at all.

The red Yamaha MT-15 doing rounds on the internet is actually a dealer-level paint job that costs INR 3000 over the standard price tag of the motorcycle. Along with the red colour option, buyers can also choose between White and Racing Blue colours if dark-themed stock shades are not as per their preferences.

The dealership is named Yamaha Bikerz and falls within the Chennai region (Alandur). The new colours you see here are not a part of the official shades offered by Yamaha Motor India, and we must make it clear that these three dealer-level colours are similar to the options that were created by Perfect Riders (Yamaha dealership) and can be registered in the custom shade after making a purchase.

The white and blue shades are available with matching lower headlight panel with the custom body colour. The Racing Blue shade is totally inspired by the Yamaha R15 V3 while White and Red were only available on the last generation R15. The red Yamaha MT-15 is available with matt black panels all around the body, creating a premium motorcycle effect through this simple yet elegant shade selection.

Yamaha MT-15 is officially available in only 2 colours in India, Metallic Black and Dark Matt Blue. The 155.1cc, single cylinder engine is shared with the mighty R15 V3, producing 19.3 HP at 10,000 rpm and 14.7 Nm at 8500 rpm. At present, the MT-15 carries an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.36 lakh.

Currently, the R15 V3 is available in 3 colours in India: Racing Blue, Thunder Grey, and Darknight (Matte Black).

Yamaha R15 V3 is a very capable entry-level sports bike for sure. This becomes more visible with the rider Azam Malick speeding his bike to 151 kmph on a highway. The top speed figure is quite astonishing as the R15 Version 3 is powered by a 155.1cc single cylinder engine.

Even after taking the speedometer error into consideration, the sport bike is capable to deliver the best top speed figure in comparison to other bikes in its class. The rider in the video figured out that 0-60 kmph takes just 4.3 seconds while 0-100 kmph comes in 10.1 seconds.

Reasons to Buy 2019 Yamaha FZ25: Yamaha recently launched the new FZ25 ABS in India with a price tag of INR 1,33,680 (ex-showroom). The motorcycle shares some of the components with the 149cc FZ series while most of the visual parts are new on the FZ25. It has been launched in Matt Black, Dark Matt Blue and Cyan Blue shades. Here are 7 reasons to buy the 2019 Yamaha FZ25 over any other bike in its segment.

7 Reasons to Buy 2019 Yamaha FZ25

1) It’s a Yamaha

Yamaha motorcycles are known for their excellent built quality and FZ25 is no different in those terms. It uses premium parts like 41 mm front forks, wider tyres and first in class features like instantaneous fuel efficiency and LED headlight. Apart from that, the after-sales service and part availability have never been an issue with the company. The charm created by the first ever FZ could be repeated through the quarter-litre machine.

2) High on Torque

The 249cc, fuel injected, oil cooled engine is good for 20 Nm of torque at just 6000 rpm. This makes it better for everyday riding as no other bike around the price tag of INR 1.33 lakh has such magic in its engine. Others like Apache RTR 200, Pulsar RS200 and KTM 200 Duke deliver their maximum torque at around 7000-8000 rpm while even then the torque output value is lower as compared to the FZ25. It’s not built for top speed as the core belief of the engine is crisp acceleration and powerful drive.

3) Dual-Channel ABS

The disc brakes on the new FZ25 support 2-channel ABS for additional safety of the rider. Most products around this price segment are available with single channel ABS and saving money on the FZ25 by removing the ABS sensor from the rear disc was never on the plans of Yamaha India. The front brake measures 282mm while the rear is 220mm.

4) Lightweight & Excellent Mileage

Yamaha FZ25 weighs just 152 kg and that too with a fuel tank that has 14 litres of capacity. This helps in delivering the excellent 43 kmpl of Yamaha claimed mileage. Other bikes that carry a quarter litre engine mostly weigh between 155-165 kg in the Indian market.  The tank extensions are aerodynamic and the overall design facilitates a powerful presence. Yamaha’s Blue Core technology helps in keeping performance high and expenses low.

5) Full Digital Console

The instrument console on the motorcycle is crystal clear and offers a single screen that holds the tachometer, speedometer, odometer, two trip-meters and values like average as well as instantaneous fuel efficiency. The fuel gauge is even digital on the FZ25. The portion that is finished in Gloss Black holds the LED indicator lights for the other functions on the motorcycle.

6) Looks & Style

Undoubtedly, this section will have different views from different users. The fuel tank section of the motorcycle is massive and carries all-new extensions that are much sharper than former FZ models. Headlight and taillight design is highly inspired by the MT series. Shades have been perfectly distributed on the body parts as few elements are finished in Matt Black while others include body specific colours like Cyan, Matte Blue and Gloss Black.  The all-LED headlight looks very futuristic, but on the downside, the illumination is poor in comparison to other bikes of this segment.

7) Value for Money

When considering a price tag of INR 1,33,680 in India, it cannot be said that it falls in the easy to buy segment for average buyers. Still, no other manufacturer offers a 249cc, fuel injected engine in this price range and that too with LED lights and such premium finish. The nearest quarter-litre machine is Honda CBR250R (INR 1.64 lakh) while the closest in terms of competition is KTM 250 Duke (INR 1.81 lakh).

As per the latest rumours, Yamaha is planning to launch the new MT-03 street fighter by the end of this year.

As of now, Yamaha Motor India has not made any official announcement regarding the launch of the MT-03. When launched in India, the bike would be competing with the likes of BMW G310R and the Benelli TNT 300. However, the segment is dominated by single cylinder lightweight motorcycles in the Indian market.
