The Yamaha MotoGP two-wheelers will have MotoGP-inspired paint schemes and decals. The Yamaha MotoGP branding is displayed on the petrol tank, side panels, and tank shrouds of the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition motorbike model range, which includes the YZF-R15M and MT-15 V2.0. While the overall body of the AEROX 155 and RayZR Monster Energy MotoGP Edition is branded with the Yamaha MotoGP branding.

The Yamaha Ray ZR 125 Fi Hybrid MotoGP edition comes with a 125 cc engine which produces 8 bhp of power and 10.3 Nm of peak torque. Additionally, it has an Automatic Stop & Start System, which stops the engine from idling and starts it with a single throttle twist.

This motor produces a maximum torque of 14 Nm and 14.8 bhp of power.
The same 155cc engine that powers the Aerox 155 also powers the Yamaha MotoGP edition R15 and MT15, however, they have been tweaked to provide additional power and torque.
