Yamaha gives out the best performance bikes and most of the bikes crave for one of them. Back at its time, it gave us RX100 as a low powered beast. Now, its low powered monster is the Yamaha R15 V3.
R15 V3 is a sportsbike, no doubt. The lowered clip-on handlebars for the dedicated riding position, sharp creases and the sporty rake give it a premium sporty look. Also, it comes with Yamaha Racing Blue and Racing Grey, completing the typical performance bike look.
The bike is all perfect but the lack of ABS makes it vulnerable to easy skids. Also, the dedicated riding position may not comply with many riders.
The sportsbike mainly competes with Pulsar RS200, Duke 125, TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and Duke 200. Without any further ado, check out the price, features, images, colors and the top speed of the bike.

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 color 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.
