Japanese two-wheeler maker Yamaha has recently launched the R15M WGP 60th Anniversary Edition in order to commemorate its 60th anniversary. This flagship supersport bike is now available in the country at an ex-showroom price of Rs 1.88 lakh. The bike comes equipped with features and specs identical to the standard R15M bike and draws styling inspiration from the World GP YZR-M1.
Yamaha R15M boasts an iconic white and red "speed block" paint scheme with gold alloys, factory race-bike gold tuning front forks, black levers and exclusive 60th Anniversary Edition badging on the fuel tank. Speaking of the feature list, it comprises a quick shifter, traction control system, Bluetooth enabled Yamaha Connect, an LCD instrument cluster with gear shift indicator, and front and rear golden wheels, to name a few.
At its heart, the World GP 60th Anniversary Edition is powered by the same 155cc, SOHC, four-valve, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that powers the standard R15 V4 model and is capable of churning out 18.6 hp of max power and 14.1 Nm of max torque using fuel-injection technology. This engine is paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The World GP 60th Anniversary Edition costs Rs 5,000 more than the standard model of the R15M.
