It has been a while since we have been waiting for the new generation Yamaha R15 V3 fully faired motorcycle. Already on sale in select South Asian markets, the new Yamaha R15 gets modern equipment and lots of features. For the first time, the bike has been spotted testing on the Indian roads. Interestingly, the motorcycle has been snapped on the streets of Delhi. Though, the spotted model was covered with riding jacket and some other stuff.
According to Bikeadvice.in, the bike looked much bigger than the regular R15 V2 and features twin headlamp unit with DRLs. It features MRF tyres and standard telescopic forks instead of upside-down front forks. These equipment will help the automaker to price it competitively in the market.

It is expected that the new Yamaha R15 V3 will go on sale in the market in early next year. We believe that the bike could be showcased or launched at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo in February. Featuring aesthetic changes, the bike is built on a modified Delta Box chassis with a new swing arm. Adding to it, the motorcycle gets reworked fuel tank with extensions and sharp fairing for an aggressive look. You May Also Like – Yamaha FZ25 | Yamaha Fazer 25

Instead of the current 149.5cc engine, the new motorcycle is equipped with a new 155cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine with SOHC technology. This engine is capable of producing 19.3bhp of power and 14.7Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel via a six-speed gearbox. Some of the design highlights include a new dual-split LED headlamp with middle air-inlet, new body panels, LED rear lights, new digital instrument console with blue colour backlights and sculpted fuel tank. The bike could also get an optional ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) system.
