Reports are coming in of Yamaha developing a new motorcycle internationally that has been codenamed BG7. While the company has several projects in the pipeline, this particular model holds great significance for India as the BG7 could be the next generation Yamaha R15 or the R15 V3.0 going by the automaker’s nomenclature in the country. The BG7 is being developed in Japan and is for exports in Thailand. The model will also make it to India.
Launched in 2008, the Yamaha R15 is an extremely capable performance offering that has played an important role in changing the landscape of entry-level performance bikes in India. Last updated in 2011 with cosmetic and certain mechanical revisions, the full faired bike is showing off its age now, especially with the competition getting better at the game. If the Yamaha BG7 is indeed the next generation R15, Yammie fans definitely have a reason to rejoice as the model will get more attractive styling, improved power output and enhanced ride and handling.
Yamaha is planning to launch the much-awaited YZF-R3 in the country on August 11, 2015. Earlier there were rumors about the company’s plans of launching the R25 instead of the R3, but the company decided to bring in the bigger model to take on the likes of KTM RC 390, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and others in the league.
First unveiled at EICMA in November 2014, the YZF-R3 is basically a more powerful sibling of the R25. Just so you know, the R3’s engine is basically a bored out version of the R25’s powertrain. And with slightly lower compression, the R3’s engine performs better than that of the R25. Powering the R3 is a 320cc, twin-cylinder engine that churns out 41bhp an 29.5Nm.
But when compared to the KTM RC390, the R3’s closest rival, despite having a single-cylinder engine churns out more power (43bhp). And since it will come as a CKD route and will have two-cylinder engine, it will be a huge challenge for Yamaha to price it competitively.
Coming to the design, the Yamaha YZF-R3 looks very similar to the R25, but with subtle changes the R3 looks sportier than the latter. Both the models share their dimensions, body panels and diamond type frame. The R3 also takes some of its design inspiration from the YZF-R series, especially its dual headlamps, 10-spoke alloy wheels, digital-analogue console and silencer. The bike is 2.0m long, 1.1m tall, and 7.2m wide with a weight of 169kgs, and a wheelbase of 1.3m. The ground clearance of the bike is 160mm.
Yamaha India that had launched the Saluto in Bangalore earlier this year, today rolled out the disc brake version of the bike in the country. Launched at Rs. 54,500 (ex-showroom, New Delhi), the disc brake model also gets new colours and graphics. The bike comes in four new colours – Glory Green, Bold Blue, Dashing White and Majestic Red.
Since it’s just the same bike albeit with disc brake, there is no mechanical change made to the 125cc motorcycle. It continues to feature the same Air cooled, 4 stroke, SOHC, 2- Valve engine, based on the Blue Core Engine Development ideal, that is good for 8.2bhp and 10.1Nm. Weighing 113kg, the Saluto’s engine is lightest in its category and is claimed to return an impressive 78km/l.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Roy Kurian, Vice President – Sales and Marketing, Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltd. said: “It has been our hallmark to continually innovate our products to have a strong connect with our customer base and ensure utmost customer delight. The new Saluto is aimed to provide safer and more controlled biking experience for the city traffic conditions. The same will be available in vibrant color schemes and graphics to boost sales and create more excitement amongst customers.”
Good News!! R 25 is coming too soon!!!Please call up our Bangalore wheels customer care for more info.The first thing you notice about this quarter-liter sports bike is that it’s one good-looking machine. It might be a small motorcycle in terms of engine capacity, or even size, for that matter, but the proportions are bang on. It isn’t just a mini-R1, it’s better! While the concept machine had just the nose job, the production machine gets something different. The designers from Shizuoka have given it the ‘shark-nose’ treatment, and the results are quite impressive. There really isn’t any motorcycle, new or old, that’s got a nose like this, and we think it might well be the shape of things to come (New R1? Nudge, nudge, wink wink). Anyway, that design element gives this machine immense presence.
Yamaha had two machines for us to ride, one in boring black, and the other in a typical Yamaha blue-and-white paint scheme that does an even better job of highlighting the aggressive lines.
