Yamaha R15 V3.0 Launch in 2017; Will be More Powerful!


The Yamaha YZF R15 has garnered enough success since its India launch in 2008. The R15 offers superbike-like looks, a powerful 150cc engine and the high refinement levels that Yamaha is known for. The YZF R15 received a facelift in 2011. The R15 Version 2.0 was surrounded by a lot of excitement due to its even sharper looks. Now, just when the R15 has started to age again, Yamaha has come up with a plan to launch another new version of the R15. The Yamaha R15 V3.0 launch will take place next year. We expect the new model to have more power and better looks. Read on for all about the Yamaha R15 V3.0 Launch Date, Price in India, Mileage, Specifications and Top Speed.new yamaha r15 v3.0 images

Seen here are new rendering images from MotoBlast. These new renderings of R15 Version 3.0 are based on the spy images of the upcoming bike. As depicted in these speculative images, the Yamaha R15 V3.0 will get new design body panels along with LED headlamps. The bike will also get a digital speedo console that will have a blue backlight. The bike could also come with upside down front forks. In all probability, the bike will share some panels with the M-Slaz. The new 2017 R15 Version 3.0 will also get new colour options.

New Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 Design

The new Yamaha R15 V3.0 will look sportier than V2.0. Thanks to many new body panels and bits like USD forks, the Version 3.0 will look bigger. Some of the panels could come from the M-Slaz streetnaked. Also, new colour options and sporty decals should make the bike more attractive. The ‘pièce de résistance’ will be LED headlamps. Once aboard, you’ll be quick to appreciate the new digital speedo console. Also, the bike could have a more comfortable seating position for both the rider and the pillion. It’s worth a mention that the V2.0 has faced a lot of flak for an uncomfortable pillion seat. Some design inspiration could also come from the YZF R125 and YZF R6.

Not much is currently known about the R15 Version 3.0. However, you can stay tuned for full details on the upcoming Yamaha R15 V3.0 Launch, Price, Specifications, Mileage, Top Speed and Images.
