"The racing DNA, sporty look and superior technology have been synonymous with the R15 which was graded up to R15 Version 2.0 in 2011. A lot of thought and hardwork had gone into the conceptualization of the R15 and it has been a huge success for the company. As we launch the R15 Version 2.0 in 4 new avatars, we are again very confident that this new introduction will help to keep the customer excitement intact in our flagship motorcycle," said Roy Kurian, Vice President - Sales and Marketing, Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltd, as quoted by Motoroids.

Earlier last week, Yamaha India recalled flagship motorcycle, the YZF-R1, to fix a problem with its lead coupler in the headlight. The recall is limited to the YZF-R1, which were manufactured between October 2008 and August 2013 and the company would replace the headlight sub lead in these vehicles. The recall is in accordance with the requirements of the parent company Yamaha Motor.
In February, Yamaha reported a 32.5 percent increase in sales at 42,548 units as against the 32,097 units in the same month last year. The company has also cut the prices of their scooters and bikes in India, following the excise duty reduction announced in the interim budget 2014-15.
