Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Highlights

07 February 2018: The next generation Yamaha R15 V3 has finally made it to the Indian turf in a better and a more pronounced avatar. As anticipated, the Indian version R15 V3 does not have upside-down (USD) forks, aluminium footpegs and ABS to keep the price of the bike in check. The Yamaha R15 V3 is priced at Rs 1.25 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi). The highlighting features of the Yamaha R15 V3 include split LED headlamps, large intake upfront, redesigned fairing, fully digital instrument cluster (first-time inclusion on the R15), raised saddle height of 815mm, chiselled tank and the large exhaust muffler. Under the skin, it gets the new liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, single-cylinder 155cc engine with Yamaha's Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) system that’s capable of producing a max power of 19.3PS, which is 2.3PS more than its predecessor at 10,000rpm and 14.7Nm of peak torque at 8,500rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and comes with a slipper clutch. The fuel efficiency of the bike is claimed to be improved by 4.7 percent. Built on the Deltabox frame, the new R15 V3 features telescopic front forks, rear monoshock absorbers and discs at either end. The bike is just 3kg heavier than the older model. In the Indian market, Yamaha R15 V3 will lock horns with the popular KTM RC200 and the Bajaj Pulsar RS200. Read more...

Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Expert Review

The Yamaha R15 is one of the favourites of biking enthusiasts in India. The new R15 V3 looks sportier, more stylish and comfortable. The sharp bodywork over the sides looks tempting while the aggressive front with spilt headlamp set up makes it for its stunning appeal. Design-wise, it is modern, sharper, edgier and capable of grabbing attention. On the comfort front, the brand has raised the saddle height and seat position ensuring that the ride is smooth and less tiring. The pillion seat has also been worked upon to make it more comfortable. Mechanically, it features the new liquid cooled, fuel injected single cylinder 155cc engine with Yamaha's Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) system that’s capable of producing a max power of 19.3PS and 14.7Nm of torque. The fitted suspension assembly will feature conventional telescopic forks at the front, unlike the international-spec version that sports upside down (USD) forks. The rear will have the mono-shock absorbers. The spy shots clearly indicate that the bike will not come with ABS, disappointing for sure. Broadly, the Indian version of the bike will be different than what’s on sale in the international market at the moment.

The Yamaha R15 V3 is a sports bike with sharp edges, aerodynamic look and drooling fairing over the sides. The design of the bike has been refreshed from the one available on the market. The bike is sharper, more comfortable and comes with a few decent updates. At the front, it gets spilt headlamps and large air intake that not only make up for the aggressive face but enhances its aerodynamic character. The side depicts its edgier stance while the tail section has become leaner. The fuel tank capacity has been reduced to 11 litres from 12 litres. The instrument cluster sports a fully digital console that shows all the important readings to the rider in a uniform manner. The split seat configuration remains the same as earlier. However, the saddle height and seat position have been raised to offer more comfort. The pillion seat has been lowered and claimed to be more comfortable which should receive appreciation. The LED taillight is still very sleek while the machine-gun muzzle like exhaust remains unchanged as the predecessor. There are new colours for buyers to consider including matte black, racing blue and red. The decals on the alloy wheels only add up to its vibrant appeal. Overall, the bike looks sporty and a go-to ride for the buyers seeking a 150cc sports bike in India. Also, the fully faired look of the Yamaha R15 V3 is good enough to turn heads and attract a lot of new buyers.

Dimensionally, it measures 1990mm long, 725mm wide and 1135mm high. The ground clearance of the bike sits at 155mm and the wheelbase at 1325mm. 

The next-gen Yamaha YZF R15 V3 underpins a liquid cooled, fuel injected single cylinder 155cc engine with Yamaha's Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) system that’s capable of producing a max power of 19.3PS at 10,000rpm and 14.7Nm of torque at 8,500rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox. The new R15 V3 is an improved performance sports bike under the 150cc bracket that can offer linear power across the entire rev range. Doing higher revs on this Yamaha bike would be fun. 

Built on the delta box frame, Yamaha R15 V3 rides on the conventional telescopic front forks and mono-shock absorbers at the rear. On the braking front, there is 267mm disc at the front and 220mm disc at the rear which in combination with MRF rubber lends supreme braking force to the new R15. It sports 17-inch alloy wheels with tubeless tyres. The combination looks optimum as far as Indian roads are concerned. Bypassing bumps won’t be an issue as the rider would cruise past them in a flash. The lack of ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) is a big disappointment for each one of us. 

Taking care of safety duties are the discs that help in stopping the bike instantly regardless of the terrain. In addition, the tubeless tyres enhance longevity and grant extra time to reach to a nearby service station in case of a puncture.
