MAW Enterprises, sole authorised distributor of Yamaha two-wheelers in Nepal, has introduced three new models of motorcycles — Saluto in 125cc category and the YZF R3 and the new R15 to complete the Yamaha R-series line up in Nepal. The new Yamaha machines were unveiled at the NADA Auto Show 2015.
The 125cc Saluto is a fuel efficient machine best suited as a family motorcycle. It has best-in-class mileage of 78 kmpl.
Similarly, the YZF R3 incorporates a newly developed 321cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, in-line two-cylinder, fuel-injected engine. The motorcycle’s powerful engine churns out peak power of 42 Ps at 10,750 rpm. With all-new engine and chassis designs, the YZF-R3 sports a solid combination of class-leading power and a lightweight body that achieves high levels of riding performance and styling worthy of the superbike.
Likewise, the new R15 shares the same DNA as that of Yamaha R1, but has a number of aggressive new features. It boasts of true Japanese technology and the 150cc Yamaha engine incorporated in this machine churns out maximum output of 17 Ps at 8,500 rpm and peak torque of 15 nm at 7,500 rpm.
