Yamaha R15 V3 India Launch Around the Corner as Many Dealerships Open Bookings for the Upcoming Motorcycle
By now, it has become fairly well known that the highly awaited Yamaha R15 V3 is about to launch in the country. As suggested by the images we have here, the Yamaha R15 V3 India launch is around the corner as the first batch of the motorcycle has started reaching the dealerships. Also, it is being reported that many dealerships across the country have started taking bookings for the upcoming motorcycle. It’s highly likely that the launch of the new model R15 will take place in January 2018.
The motorcycle that is about to launch in India looks a lot like its international counterpart. That said, the India-spec V3 is more of a facelift than an all-new model (like the one on sale abroad). The India-spec Yamaha R15 V3 is based on the V2 but comes with many new body panels and a new engine. It also comes with many new features to enhance the attractiveness of the company’s popular 150cc full-fairing motorcycle.
Yamaha R15 V3 India Launch Date
Speculations abound that the new Yamaha R15 V3 India launch will take place next month, i.e., in January 2018. Until now, it was expected that the new motorcycle would make its India debut at the Auto Expo 2018. However, with the first batch of motorcycles having reached the dealerships, it becomes highly probable that the new model would launch in coming weeks.
