Yamaha R15 V3.0 REVEALED! India Launch Soon


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 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. Also See – Yamaha FZ25

New Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 Design

The new Yamaha R15 V3.0 looks sportier than V2.0. Thanks to many new body panels and bits like USD forks, the Version 3.0 looks bigger. Also, new colour options and sporty decals should make the bike more attractive. The ‘pièce de résistance’ are new 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.yamaha r15 v3.0 images

  4. R15 v3 is 1 of beautiful Creation no doubt but i want to include my view for yamaha we are pleasure to see that after every year yamaha lunch new bikes wid new modifications on models , which became competition for bike luvers, cuse they want to buy those new luch bike before any1 experience it,
    bikes are awesome but price is too much higher for middle class people live on india,
    best example is cell phones this days many mobile companies comes in market wid different selling strategy they modify their old cell phones wid new features and stylish models but their success for launching those cell are depends on price , there few examples like at first there wher only 2 company ws there name Samsung and Nokia, but trend changed when new companies luch their new cell phones like Micromax, assus, intex, vivo, and oopo,
    now days no 1 ask about Nokia and samsung the lead mobile companies are oopo and vivo ,
    so my point is the price of new lunch bikes shuld be affordable for maximum buyers otherwise any thing can change without notice,

  5. Looking forward for R15 v.3 with a range of INR 1.40 ON RoaD.pls send me updates for the launch of this bike
