16 Yamaha R15 Version 2.0 without the Rear tyre Hugger (and saree guard)

Photos of how the Yamaha R15 Version 2.0 looks sans its rear tyre hugger and it's saree guard..

After the face lift (err.. actually "rear" lift), the only eye sore on the updated Yamaha R15 Version 2.0 is the rear tyre hugger and the madatory (by Indian law) saree guard.

Removing both is not too difficult a task. Posted below are photos of how the Yamaha R15 V2.0 looks without them.

The Yamaha R15 Version 2.0 seems to be in use for the Yamaha one make race in the ongoing 2011 National Road Racing Championships.

The rear of the R15 V2.0 in the photos might be looking slightly incomplete largely because of the missing rear number plate (which is because it is being raced on the track).

With the rear number plate at its place and the rear tyre hugger cum saree guard removed, the R15 now definitely looks like an honest Super Sports bike.

A quite sexy looking rear end right..??

@Benny,

that's a REAL swingarm fabricated out of aluminum and not just a plastic decoy.

Sam said...

Just a quibble, but the "hugger" is that small guard attached to the swingarm, which keeps mud off the rear shock, and which "hugs" the tire, hence the name. I think you meant that the rear "fender" or mudguard had been removed, not the hugger.

S.P - Biker Next Door said...

@Sam, the new R15 V2.0 doesn't have rear fender that other "normal" Indian bikes have..

..therefore the rear fender on the R15 V2.0 has been split into 2 pieces. The first piece is attached with the swingarm and also acts as a mud protector to the monoshock rear suspension. The second piece is a "Tyre hugger" cum "saree guard".

Sam said...

My apologies. They did indeed put an extended "hugger"-type fender on the back of that thing. I guess I was using the US/Europe sense of the term "hugger" which invariably refers to that small guard at the front of the rear tire. It is common in the US to remove the long, awkward-looking fender/plate bracket that the manufacturers are required to hang off the backs of their sport bikes, which is what I (wrongly) assumed you were referring to. Very few non-cruiser bikes there have fenders that sit so close to the rear wheel.

Where r da Rear Foot pegs ???? or was it intergrated with rear tyre hugger ???

S.P - Biker Next Door said...

@above,

its a bike stipped for racing on the track. therefore even the rear footpegs have been done away with. its probably a bike provided by Yamaha India for its R15 one make race.

so guys how do I get this mod done. How to replace the saree guard and just keep the mudguard as it appears on this pick.... When I saw the bike it was attached to each other and there was no way you can separate it. is there an accessory which we can fit (may be from some other yamaha?)?

if u remove the rear tyre hugger, you will face the problem while riding on the wet roads coz there are chances of water coming out through the tyre threads could come on the persons back seated on the pillion. Please check this out and remove the rear tyre hugger.
