230bhp speculated 2015 Yamaha R1 spied!

After a lot of speculations and renderings based on them, the 2015 Yamaha R1 has been seen in action in Sydney. As speculated, its is going to get very serious upgrade this year. The image, though its not very clear, can only show you the cosmetic changes. Some are arguing about whether it is an R1 or R6 but if reporting of the picture taker is to be believed, it is definitely an R1 and not an R6.


Whereas on the performance front, the bike is expected to get some serious bump in power. Uptill 2014, the bike was powered by the mill making 182 hp of power. This year the Japanese automaker will produce two versions of their flagship. One will be the street focused variant like the current production R1, and the other one will be an astoundingly powerful 230 hp variant that is also expected to have more performance goodies. The engine geometry is kept same as inline-4, though the manufacturer have done some serious tweaking to make it produce peak power with such major increase.

The model will be launched later this year and Indian market will get the update as soon as the worldwide update. Stay tuned to get more updates on this, on the same time we will love to hear your thoughts on this much awaited update from Yamaha.
