Yamaha YZF-R15 the 150cc Sportbike

Rumors of Yamaha entering the 150cc range of sport bikes is getting bigger by the day, the new motorcycle would as the story go's be the Yamaha YZF-R15 a 150cc full fairing motorcycle, with the highest horsepower engine (22hp) in its class at a dry weight of just 120kilo.

If the rumors are correct, then Yamaha will take the crown in the 150cc range from the Honda CBR-150R. The Yamaha YZF-R15 is supposed to be a four-stroke, liquid cooled single cylinder, 4-valve SOHC, 149.8cc engine with oil-cooling and electric fuel injection.
To quote an insiders at Yamaha the Yamaha YZF-R15 would be a real R-series and is packed with Grand Prix technology. The Yamaha YZF-R15 will deliver stunning R-Series styling and exhilarating sports performance. A highly sporty constant mesh, 6-speed transmission system, with Yamaha own wet sump (Yamalub) lubrication system.

The chassis is a high tensile steel deltabox design, familiar to what we seen with the Yamaha YZF-125 and the Yamaha GP250 bike. The rumor of the Yamaha YZF-R15 tells that this radical, high-revving, fuel-injected 150cc is the work of the same engineers who created our YZF-R1 and YZF-R6 supersport bikes and the YZF-R15 is capable to deliver stunning 150cc performance.

Any updates on this? I'm looking to change my Honda CBR150 shortly and this Yamaha sounds like something I'd like to try out.
