The new R15 looks bigger and has a much more powerful engine, too. The new design lends a very modern and aggressive look to the new R15. Other important highlights of the 2017 Yamaha R15 is the introduction of upside-down front telescopic forks. However, ABS has been given a miss.

New Yamaha R15 V3 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.
