The Yamaha R15 V 3.0 gets better with time. The sharp creases, the devil-may-care attitude and its quick acceleration make it so popular, despite having a price tag of Rs 1.25 Lakhs. Check out more details of the sportsbike in this article.
In this article, we take on the Yamaha R15 V 3.0. Unlike the other two older generations, this one gets the perfect striking body. The riding position is committed and the bike is committed too. It gets sharp creases and some detailed graphics over its body, which makes it look even sportier. However, the build quality of the components is not that great. The latest version gets new Split-Dual LED headlamps, a blue backlight digital instrument console, Rear Mono-suspension, Split seats and an even sportier look. Yamaha has tried to make it look like the R1 or R3 and it somewhat has succeeded. For a 150cc, the price may be a bit steep. It is priced at Rs 1.25 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). It has a very serious following, which makes it more popular.
The India-spec R15 V 3.0 looks a lot like the international model. It gets new design body panels along with LED headlamps. The bike also gets a digital speedo console that has a blue backlight. The new motorcycle will also get new colour options. However, the new version of the R15 for India misses out on the upside-down front forks.

|Price||Rs 1.25 Lakh|

Missing Features on the Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 India spec model
The India-spec R15 V3.0 is somewhat based on the V2.0 and isn’t the new-generation that’s on sale abroad. The India-spec R15 V3.0 gets the same front forks that the V2.0 comes with. Yes, there are no USDs. Also, the motorcycle doesn’t get an ABS. It doesn’t get the sticky Pirellis. Also, the sportier fender of the V3.0 doesn’t make it to the model for our country. Even the footpegs seem to be the same. Also, going by the nature of omissions, it doesn’t look like even the slipper clutch would be offered on this motorcycle. You can say that the R15 V3 looks like a facelift of the V2 with some added features.

Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 India Mileage

New Yamaha R15 Version 3 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. Between the international V3.0 and Indian model, the former looks sportier thanks to upside-down front forks and alloy foot pegs. Both of these are missing from the Indian model.
