Also on offer are a slipper clutch with an assist function that reduces the effort required at the lever. The headlamps are now full LED and cornering lamps are now available on the new ES version. As the name suggests, the ES version features electrically adjustable suspension. The basevaraint retails at about Rs 11 lakh in the USA, add about Rs 2 lakh more for the ES version. Simplyeasily double that figure for a fair idea of how much this bike would cost after our tax and duty structure if Yamaha ever decides to bring it here.
