No sirs, this isn’t Version 3.0, as these images would absolutely love you to believe. Admittedly, our hearts skipped a beat or two at first sight but digging deeper, we found out the secret – the R15 V2.0 borrowing its bigger brother R6’s suit!
We stumbled upon this image courtesy BikeBD, a motoring website from our neighbouring country, Bangladesh. At first, things get a little confusing. But it does not take long to realise that this is just a Yamaha YZF-R15 V2.0 that has been smartly gelled up with the YZF-R6 fascia.
The motorcycle in images is a mod-job from Vietnam and we must say that we are really impressed by the clean instalment of the YZF-R6 fairing and headlight on the humble YZF-R15. But this upgrade appears to be a cosmetic job only. While there is no information about any performance upgrades, looking at the stock exhaust, we expect that the motorcycle delivers stock power output figures.
While we were disappointed to know that this is not the third generation R15, we absolutely love this modification to bits! We hope you did too…
