As part of its ‘Call of the Blue 2.0’ campaign, Yamaha has launched the Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0, FZ25 and Cygnus Ray in a limited-edition Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP colours. The two-wheelers with the special colour schemes cost a bit more than the standard shades. The R15 is priced at Rs 1,42,780, which is Rs 500 more than the Darknight scheme and Rs 2,500 more than the standard colours. The Monster Energy scheme costs Rs 2,500 more on the FZ-25 as well, at Rs 1,36,680. On the Ray ZR, the colour costs Rs 59,028, which is Rs 500 more than the Darknight scheme and Rs 1,500 more than the standard shades. The extra money will also get customers a complimentary Monster Energy-branded T-shirt.
This isn’t the first time the R15 V3.0 gets a MotoGP edition, as Yamaha launched one last August as well. However, this year’s model looks considerably different, considering that Monster Energy became the title sponsor for the Yamaha MotoGP team at the start of this season. The colour scheme features a black and blue base with Monster Energy branding graphics on the side panels and front fairing. Mechanically, all three vehicles remain identical to their respective standard variants. This also happens to be the first time a Yamaha scooter in India wears MotoGP-inspired race graphics.
Yamaha isn’t the only manufacturer to bring its MotoGP livery onto road-going entry level motorcycles. Earlier last month, Suzuki launched the new Gixxer SF in its MotoGP inspired colours and also revealed that the SF250 will soon be getting the same.
