The modified R15 from Indonesia also gets an aftermarket exhaust and a tail tidy unit apart from the custom BMW MotoGP livery
We have already seen some fine examples of customized Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 from various custom motorcycles workshops but this particular example from Indonesia definitely draws attention. The owner of this Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 took inspiration from a rendered image and created the custom decals which draw its cues from the BMW’s safety bike, the S1000RR, used in MotoGP races.
The motorcycle gets custom decals on almost all its body panel including the front fender, fascia, fairing, fuel tank, and the rear panel. Interestingly the owner even replicated the sponsor’s decals as well which can be found on the original BMW MotoGP safety bike. The owner has not messed with the original blue paint of the motorcycle though.
Besides just the paint the motorcycle also features an aftermarket exhaust and a tail tidy kit which helps in giving the rear profile a cleaner and compact styling. While the rest of the motorcycles remain stock. The modified motorcycle still retains the full LED headlamps and upside down telescopic forks which come as standard with the Indonesian spec R15 Version 3.0.
Although, there is no information whether the motorcycle has received any performance upgrades or not. However, we do believe that this motorcycle surely has received some minor power upgrade because of the aftermarket exhaust.
For your information, the stock R15 Version 3.0 is powered by a 155 cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine which produces about 19.3 PS of peak power at 10,000 rpm and 14.7 Nm of peak torque at 8,500 rpm. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox. The newly developed engine features variable valve actuation (VVA) technology that promises to offer good mid and top end power delivery without any lag.
if you loved the racing livery of the R15 Version 3.0 then Yamaha also offers a MotoGP edition of the YZF-R15 V3.0 which is available both in India as well as in the International market as well. The prices of the Indian spec MotoGP YZF-R15 Version 3.0 is priced at Rs 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
