The special editions come with a new paint inspired by Yamaha's MotoGP motorcycles.
Yamaha India has announced the launch of the 2022 MotoGP Edition models of the R15M and MT-15 Ver 2.0. The special edition motorcycles will be on sale at the company’s Blue square chain of dealerships across India.
Changes in these special editions are purely cosmetic. The motorcycles are now gowned in black paint with Yamaha and Monster Energy decals on either side. The latter can be prominently seen on the fuel tank, its shrouds as well as the side panels and the headlight cowl.
In terms of mechanicals, both the motorcycles retain their original powertrain. This means that the duo is powered by the same 155cc liquid-cooled motor with an output rated 18.1bhp and 14.2Nm (14.1Nm for the MT-15). Furthermore, even the feature list of both the motorcycles has been retained.
Like other core aspects, even the cycle parts have been retained from the standard variants. Both the motorcycles come with an inverted front fork at the front and a monoshock at the back.
The price for the R15M MotoGP Edition is set at Rs 1.90 lakh (ex-showroom). This is Rs 8,100 more than before and the same as the Metallic Grey paint option. On the other hand, the MT-15 Ver 2.0 MotoGP Edition costs 1,65,400 (both ex-showroom Delhi), which is Rs 2,000 more than its base model.
