The 2016 Yamaha R15 with new color themes has been launched in Indonesia at a starting price of IDR 29.8 million (around INR 1.51 lakhs), on-road, Jakarta. Like most refreshes by Yamaha, the Indonesia-spec R15 features no mechanical changes whatsoever.
The fully faired compact sportsbike is now available in three new color themes – Speed Grey, Racing Blue and Supernova White. New decal design goes well with the revised color themes. Each color has its own unique livery design. The Racing Blue variant went a step further to adopt blue finished alloy wheels.
The 149 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine continues to be mated with a 6-speed gearbox. Power and torque figures stand at 16.5 PS at 8,500 rpm and 14.5 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm (Indian version is rated at 17 PS and 15 Nm).
Yamaha Indonesia has also announced a new special edition model to promote the refreshed motorcycle. Called as the 2016 Yamaha R15 Ohlins edition, the limited edition variant features an upmarket Ohlins rear monoshock. The special edition model can be booked via R15’s official Indonesian website for a period of 30 days between March 15 and April 14.
