Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 Price, Specs, Top Speed And More Details


The Yamaha R15 is a hot bike and takes its underpinnings from the R1 sports bike. It sports a 155 CC SOHC engine mated to a 6-speed transmission. The bike is priced at Rs 1.25 Lakh (ex-showroom) and it competes with Gixxer SF and CBR 150R. Here we explain the prices, specs, top speed, features of the sports bike. 

The latest iteration of the Yamaha R15 made its global debut in Indonesia in January this year. The India-spec model, however, is not an all-new version and is based on the V2.0. The sports bike competes with the likes of Suzuki Gixxer SF and Honda CBR 150R. It comes with features such as Split-Dual LED headlamps, Split Seats, Rear Mono-suspension, New Digital Instrument Cluster and LED Taillamp. However, amongst its competitors, it misses out on a lot of features.  Read on for complete details on the new Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 Price, Launch Date, Specifications, and Images.

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.

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.
