If you grew up watching Ultraman and secretly wishing you were the Japanese superhero, this piece of news might be of your interest.
You may not become Ultraman, but with this special edition motorcycle, you could ride like one.
Yamaha recently launched their new 'kapcai' motorcycle that pays homage to the 1966 Japanese superhero we all love.
Dubbed the Yamaha Y15ZR Ultraman Limited Edition
, the motorcycle sports the classic Ultraman colours of red and silver, with a matte finish.
On top of that, the special edition bike -- which is an officially licensed product from Taigaco, Malaysia's official Ultraman licensing agent -- comes with a limited edition gold emblem (bonus: you can choose which edition number you want it to be) and an alloy Rapida adjustable brake and clutch levers.
That's not all: Yamaha will also throw in some pretty awesome goodies that are sure to appease your inner Ultraman fan, such as an exclusive Ultraman T-shirt
, behind-the-scenes photos
from the original TV series, Ultraman postcards
and a certificate of authenticity, so that your friends know that your Ultraman 'kapcai' is the real deal!
Beneath all the Ultraman livery and goodies, the motorcycle boasts a 150cc single-cylinder SOHC engine and a five-speed gearbox.
