Yamaha's prototype R15
YAMAHA HAS shown two new motorcycles at the Auto Expo show in Inda yesterday.
The R15 is similar in looks to the YZF-R125 which debuted at Paris but comes with a beefed up 150cc fuel-injected, liquid-cooled motor with 4 valves per cylinder and kicks out 22bhp. It has a six-speed gearbox.
According to Yamaha, the bike will top the scales at just 130kg.
The second bike put out by the Japanese firm was the exquisite FZ150. Based on the Fazer 1000, the little FZ is supposed to put out around 20bhp (it's using the same motor as the R15) but with more torque on tap.
Nice. Especially when you're cruising past the girls outside the local chip shop.
