Yamaha R15 V2 owners know the feeling of riding a young supersport motorcycle and each one of them must have imagined how a similar genre flagship would look under their possession. Taking the front seat here, a Vietnam-based modifier has converted the second generation Yamaha R15 into a BMW HP4 Race.

The motorcycle featured here feels slightly different as the front and rear wheels have been kept stock to avoid engine overkill. The front fascia is derived from the INR 86.70 lakh BMW HP4 Race, leaving the headlights behind for this aerodynamically efficient fairing and golden USD front forks.

Unlike the BMW HP4 Race, this modified R15 features the much-celebrated pillion seat. However, the high tail design of the R15 V2 has helped the motorcycle look like a proper race bike. The modifier has used decorative faux carbon fibre parts to add more sporty feel into the product.

In fact, the addition of frame sliders on both sides will protect the fragile side panels during a sudden fall. The side fairing of the motorcycle features HP4 and BMW monikers while the seat used here comes with better padding than the stock model of the BMW HP4 Race for more comfort-filled hours on the track.

The exhaust used here is different from the original one on the BMW HP4 Race but this one is also equally impressive in terms of exhaust sound and design improvement. The effect of this Akrapovic unit is unknown as performance values for the motorcycle are not yet available.

Even though the 149cc engine on the R15 V2 is good for 17 HP, the level of attention paid while making this motorcycle confirms that eyeballs will roll with its tyres on every road for sure.

The braking also stays stock, leaving this Yamaha-based HP4 Race with a single front and rear disc, that too without any other addition except for the Brembo master cylinder. Here is the complete photo gallery of the Yamaha R15 V2, which has been modified to look like a BMW HP4 Race.

The Yamaha R15 V3 you see here has taken the extreme route of modification and got itself an R1M-inspired look. However, the changes are totally visual and more importantly, based on a kit that can be mounted or removed. The kit comes with a custom headlight setup with huge bubble visor, redesigned side fairing and a completely new tail section with an in-built backrest.

The rear section of the sportbike also flaunts effective winglets while the front can be seen with a custom fender. The taillight and turn indicators are neatly studded into the new panels. The R15 V3 seen here is an Indonesia-spec model as one can spot the USD front forks and rear aluminium footpeg holders.

Yamaha R15 has served as a base for hundreds of modifications in the past decade and some of the owners have gone to the next level by adding technology to their examples. Here, the primary focus was to achieve R1M styling and that too by not altering any performance-related components of the R15 V3.

The impressive shade looks even better in the low light conditions. The modifier has used precisely-placed stickers to highlight the overall design upgrade. The centre section of the fuel tank is wrapped in black shade for the perfect contrast.

At present, the Yamaha R15 V3 can be had in four different shades in India, that too with 2-channel ABS as a stock feature. The base model of the sportbike is available for INR 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom) while the top-end Monster Energy MotoGP edition is priced at INR 1.43 lakh.

The most powerful motorcycle of its kind, the stock version of R15 V3 can produce 19.3 HP of maximum power and claims 0-100 kph in around 12 seconds. The modified model seen here comes with premium tires while the use of huge panels at both the front and rear end makes the wheelbase feel puny in comparison to the stock model.

According to the recent reports, all the 300 production units of MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Oro, being claimed as “the most desirable and anticipated bike of 2020”, has been officially sold out. The motorcycle was officially unleashed at the EICMA in November 2018, leaving the viewers stunned with its unique design. The brand recently revealed the pricing for the motorcycle in the European market in June. The powerful streetfighter was available at a price tag of €42,990 (INR 33.77 lakh, direct conversion).

The model carries design inspiration from the original Brutale design by Massimo Tamburini. The production-spec streetfighters are available with lower overall output in comparison to their faired counterparts but Brutale 1000 Serie Oro is an exception from this trend. The powerful engine used here is good for 212HP of maximum output in the stock form.

The 4-1-4 exhaust system from SC-Project even looks the best with this minimalistic design. The power was achieved after using the combustion and other properties from the WSBK F4 RC bike. The four-cylinder engine uses 13.4:1 compression ratio and measures 998cc in displacement.

The combustion chamber has been redesigned for better efficiency while camshaft timing was also changed to achieve an overall increase in performance. The compression rings are all-new, improving internal component life and taking performance to an all-new level. The bike weighs 186kg in the standard condition further losing 2kg with the race kit.

The weight values are dry while adding fuel to the motorcycle will touch the 200kg mark. MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Oro comes with 5-inch TFT display, eight-level traction control, up/down quick-shifter and wheelie control. The addition of launch control guarantees perfect superbike starts to the rider.
The brand offers carbon fibre wheels, aerodynamic wings and much more to improve the overall riding character.

The brakes are from Brembo while Ohlins supply the suspension components. The body panels are also made from carbon fibre to reduce the overall weight of Serie Oro. Being targeted for a special set of customers, the brand is planning on using the same platform of the limited edition motorcycle to churn out more affordable products which will be produced in mass numbers across several international as well as Asian markets.

Bajaj Pulsar RS200 shocked everyone with its official entry in March 2015. After the launch of the RS200 in the Indian market, the buyers who were struggling to get their hands on the KTM RC 200, got a great 200cc option that is not just equally impressive but also saves a lot of money.

Now a few years later, Vietnam based ‘Leeat Moto’ has come forward with a heavily modified Pulsar RS200, which is inspired by the mighty Kawasaki Ninja H2. The motorcycle has been personally customized with aggressive bodywork and a sharper design. Let’s forget the front face for a moment but no one can deny the fact that side fairing used here looks even more genuine than the original RS200.

For those who believe in strong superbike inspired sound, this single-cylinder machine features an Akrapovic full titanium exhaust system. The front fascia is almost identical to the Ninja H2 and thus, the modifier has used a centre-mounted headlight and panel integrated turn indicators for aggressive styling.

The visor has also grown into a full-sized unit that now gets better positioning for lesser fatigue due to wind blast. Leeat Moto has used USD telescopic forks for better suspension abilities and at the same time, better clip-on bars have been used to get that perfect track bike control from the motorcycle.

The modifier has reshaped the entire body and they have equipped the bike with a slim LED taillight. Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is already a decently powerful motorcycle, and after this modification, the lightweight parts must have made it closer in terms of performance to the KTM RC 200.

The 199.5cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected, liquid-cooled engine on the motorcycle is good for 24.5 HP of maximum power and 18.6 Nm of maximum torque. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. At present, the stock model of Pulsar RS200 is available for INR 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), and it comes with a single-channel ABS unit as standard.

Yamaha Motor Company has unveiled the 2020 models of its superbike portfolio, the R1 and R1M. The updated superbikes have been introduced at the American WSB round in Laguna Seca in California. The 2020 Yamaha R1 has been updated with a distinguished fairing at the front that offers improved aerodynamics while the brand has also updated the electronic package for the new R1 series.

The 2020 tweaks offered to the superbikes have been one of the most significant updates ever since 2015. The newly updated Yamaha R1 can be availed in the UK markets from September 2019 in ‘Yamaha Blue’ and ‘Midnight Black’ colour options while the 2020 Yamaha R1M can be availed in a new shade with carbon fibre livery, known as ‘Silver Blu Carbon’.

Taking inspiration from the Yamaha factory MotoGP bikes ridden by Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales, the 2020 Yamaha R1 gets a new visor as well as a new fairing that has been merged with the fuel tank of the motorcycle, leading to improved aerodynamics efficiency by 5.3%. The wider seat makes way for more comfortable riding for a different range of riders.

The 2020 model of the superbike has been equipped with a new aluminium air duct besides the front fairing for stronger reinforcement. The bike now weighs less due to the use of aluminium clad fuel tank as well as wheels making it much easier to handle.

The slightly-tweaked LED-equipped dual headlight setup gives the superbike a beast look while the refreshed colour combinations add onto its premium profile. Powering the Yamaha R1 and R1M is the same 998cc, inline-four cylinder engine that has been tweaked to offer a maximum power of 200HP and a maximum torque of 113.3 Nm. The engine has been made Euro5 compliant and features four catalytic converters while the bike has been equipped with Bosch fuel injectors that feature a 10-hole design for a wider spray of fuel for more efficient combustion.

The Brake Control System (BCS) allows the riders to choose one of the two ABS modes: BC1 and BC2 as per the road and cornering conditions. The use of ride-by-wire throttle offers the rider more control over the motorcycle and better performance. The newly updated Yamaha R1 and R1M get six-axis IMU with seven electronic control units as well as a slightly redesigned TFT instrument panel. As per the reports, the superbikes are expected to be launched in India by the end of the year 2019.

Honda CB1000R Monkey Kong is a neatly modified example of the flagship streetfighter from the Japanese motorcycle giant. Custom-made by Mallorca Motos (Spain) for a contest named ‘Honda Garage Dreams’ in Europe, the motorcycle is inspired from the popular Monkey series in terms of equipment and colour selection.

Starting from the front, CB1000R seen here features golden-finished USD front forks instead of the black one. The golden fever can also be spotted on the headlight fins, frame, and fuel tank of the motorcycle. The front fender is raised like a typical off-road machine, complementing the custom exhaust system with higher than usual height to mimic the Monkey bike stance.

The lower half of the fuel tank features the ivory finish while black exhaust comes with chrome panel on the side to keep the pillion away from the heating surface. CB1000R comes with a modern set of indicators, duly replaced with the Honda Monkey-inspired set of units to keep up with the profile.

The Honda logo remains similar to the one seen on the original motorcycle while rear suspension now comes with a yellowish-golden spring instead of the red-finished one. The motorcycle is available with a premium single-sided swingarm and dual front disc brakes as standard.

Honda CB1000R is powered by a 998cc, four-cylinder engine producing 143.5 HP at 10,500 rpm and 104 Nm at 8,250 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The fuel tank carries 16.2-litres of fuel while the stock weight for the model is 213 kg.

The switch of exhaust and fender would definitely result in a weight change and not just that, the centre of gravity also changes with a higher-placed exhaust. The four-pipe layout remains the same as the standard motorcycle while the stock exhaust is pretty short in comparison to the Monkey-inspired exhaust can. At present, the stock model of the Honda CB1000R is available in India for INR 14.45 lakh.

BMW HP4 Race is now available in India with a price tag of INR 86.70 lakh. The German manufacturer is known for its reliable machines that perform extensively well in the toughest possible circumstances. If you are a fan of high-performance motorcycles with a unique approach, these five must know facts for BMW HP4 Race will blow away your mind.

5 Interesting Facts About BMW HP4 Race

1) Featherweight Frame & Body

HP4 Race measures 2070mm in length, 777mm in width and 1193mm in height. These dimensions match to almost entire SuperSport category racers available around the world. What’s astonishing here is that HP4 Race weighs just 146kg (dry) and adds 25.4kg to take on any challenge. This added weight includes 17.5-litres of fuel, tipping the scale at 171.4kg. For comparison, a motorcycle producing the same amount of power weighs around 200kg. You get KTM RC 390’s weight with a litre-class engine under the fairing.

2) Powerful Engine & Premium Components

BMW HP4 Race comes with a 999cc, inline-4 engine, producing 215HP at 13,900 rpm and 120Nm at 10,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed, anti-hopping clutch with straight cut gears. What makes HP Race even more special is the use of racing camshafts, four titanium valves, and Pankl connecting rod. The engine comes with electronic racing injection and full titanium WSBK racing exhaust.

3) Engine Life & Replacement Interval

If you feel that buying this INR 86.70 lakh motorcycle would be the only expense, this track bike has a different story. The engine requires rebuilding (not to be confused with servicing) after a 5000km interval. The cost of rebuilding is so high that BMW recommends buying a new engine for 15,000 euros (INR 12 lakh approx). The value seen here is without import tax. The high price makes every kilometre highly expensive to ride.

4) Most Expensive Motorcycle in India

At INR 86.70 lakh, BMW HP4 Race is the most expensive motorcycle in India that you can buy from a dealership. Earlier, this record was held by Kawasaki Ninja H2R at INR 72 lakh. As both these bikes are track legal only, no extra registration charge will be applicable to both of them. In fact, you will need a towing vehicle to carry the same around different tracks or hire a professional service occasionally.

5) Missing Parts

Those who are new to track bikes, you will be amazed to see no headlight, tail light, indicators, number plates or rear mudguard on the bike. All these are not available on track bikes to keep their overall weight lower. A rear seat cowl saves additional weight by replacing the pillion seat. Above all, the frame and wheels on BMW HP4 Race are made out of carbon fibre, giving them additional strength and agility, in comparison to other track spec bikes with road legal properties.

Kawasaki Ninja H2R is a dream machine of every true motorcycle enthusiast of India. The powerful motorcycle has numerous exclusive features and above all, a technology that puts 1.5 times the power into a similar package when compared to regular sporty options available in the country. The output values can leave any potential product, even a track-focused race car, in confusion to accept the challenge. Here are 15 important points that one should know about the motorcycle.

Kawasaki Ninja H2R

15 Must-Know Facts

1) World’s Fastest Production Bike – Ninja H2R touched the 400 kph top speed when World Supersport champion Kenan Sofuoglu took it for a ride on the Osman Gazi bridge near Istanbul. The feat was achieved in just 26 seconds on the closed bridge. The rider normally experiences 300 kph of speeds on average during the Supersport races and this was a new experience for him too. The record was made during low wind conditions.

2) Self-Healing Paint – The original silver mirror paint finish helps the motorcycle stay young among other supersport machines of the world. The highly durable paint automatically heals the scratches as hard and soft segments of the paintwork together to create a smooth layer all the time. The paint only heals scratches from the soft sources.

3) Bank Angle Display – Kawasaki Ninja H2R comes with a bank angle display that records the maximum angle achieved and shows the same whenever required. The inertial measurement unit on the motorcycle is very effective and helps the H2R bring such impressive features.

4) Not Road Legal – The motorcycle is only for track use or in special cases, roads that have been legally closed for an event. The lack of mandatory parts like the headlight, taillight, and mirrors make H2R a limited-use product. In other words, you won’t get a number plate for your motorcycle.

5) Supercharged Engine – Kawasaki brings the 998cc, supercharged engine into the motorcycling world, producing 310 HP in normal and 326 HP in the RAM air-assist mode. The power is achieved at 14,000 rpm while 165 Nm of torque is available at 12,500 rpm. Ninja H2R loves being revved and taking the range into 5-digit number brings exclusive performance.

6) Carbon Fiber Wings – Ninja H2R comes with carbon fiber wings for improved downforce and those are placed at the same location as the rear view mirrors on regular bikes. The setup is lightweight and very effective when considering speeds of over 300 kph.

7) Bridgestone Battlax V01 Tires – Kawasaki offers the most impressive rubber combination on the H2R, that too with a unique way of listing the size. The race-spec tires can’t be changed at will as every electronic feature is configured according to their dimensions and capability.

8) Single-sided Swingarm – The premium single-sided swingarm saves some weight and looks very impressive when seen from any of the sides. As the disc brake and swingarm stays on the left side of the rider, the right looks very sporty with just the visible alloy design and titanium exhaust system of the H2R.

9) Brembo Brakes – The 330mm, dual Brembo semi-floating brakes with 5.5mm of thickness help keeping the unsprung weight low and takes the stopping power to a new level. The rear comes with 250mm rear disc brake with 2-piston unit while the front features M50 4-piston setup.

10) Ohlins Suspension – Ninja H2R comes with Ohlins TTX36 gas-charged shock with 135mm of travel. Not just that, the precise steering damper is also made in collaboration with Ohlins. The front suspension is a 43mm USD unit with 120mm of travel.

11) Informative Console – Kawasaki Ninja H2R comes with an informative console with analogue tachometer and TFT display for rest of the values. The screen features a gear indicator, speedometer and trip meter with the highest amount of readability.

12) Availability & Price in India – Ninja H2R is available in India for INR 75.80 lakh and attracts just 1% TCS over the same for the total value. The charges related to RTO documentation are not applicable on the H2R. The total one time cost adds up to INR 76.56 lakh for the motorcycle.

13) India vs US Price – The huge INR 75.80 lakh price tag is due to the huge amount of taxes applicable to the import. On the other hand, the Ninja H2R costs just $55,000 (INR 38.40 lakh approx) in the US market. The price is almost double in India and thus, the number of units sold is directly affected by the difference. The first 2019 Ninja H2R was recently delivered by Anzen Kawasaki in Mumbai (Know More).

14) Service Interval – The Ninja H2R requires regular checkups at every 15 hours of operation. The console calculates the time automatically and not just that, only the number of minutes above 8000 rpm is calculated by the system.

15) No Warranty – Even after spending INR 76.56 lakh on the motorcycle, the buyer is offered no warranty on any of the components by Kawasaki. Even the engine and basic parts are out of warranty on the H2R. Every service falls under the paid segment for the motorcycle.
