Some of the visual highlights are the gold colored alloy wheels, the Yamaha factory race-bike gold tuning fork symbol, the black lever and the special commemorative badge on the fuel tank. The 60th anniversary edition of the World GP YZF R15M is also reminiscent of Yamaha’s first Grand Prix race.

It produces a maximum power output of 8.4 PS at 10,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 14.2 Nm at 7,500 rpm. The fuel-injected mill with variable valve actuation (VVA) technology is mated to a six-speed gearbox. Also, the list of features is similar to the regular YZF-R15M because it comes with R1-inspired LCD instrument console with traction control, quickshifter, golden USD fork, Bluetooth connectivity, gear position indicator, track and street display modes.

A dual-channel ABS system is available as a standard fit when it is underpinned by a Delta box frame and suspended in a Linked-type rear monocoque suspension.
Speaking on the occasion, Ishin Chihana, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India Group of Companies Said “The YZF-R15M at the WGP 60th Anniversary Lever is just a reminder of our racing legacy, a milestone that marks Yamaha’s more than 500 World Grand Prix wins since 1961.
