The Yamaha YZF R15 V3 will come with the same 16.7bhp, 149cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled petrol engine paired to a 6-speed gearbox.

January 9, 2017 – It has been a while since Yamaha is testing the new generation Yamaha YZF-R15 on Indonesian roads. Scheduled to make debut this year, the new model will be christened as 2017 Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0. It was speculated that the new motorcycle will receive minor cosmetic updates and a more refined engine. However, the new spy images reveal that it will be a comprehensilvely re-designed motorcycle.

Going by the spyshots, it is visible that the bike gets a bigger chiselled tank and new fairing. The bike gets narrower dual-split headlamps with bigger air inlet in the middle. The new model looks bigger than the current model, and could be fitted to a bigger motor. Two test mules of the bike were spotted on the roads, hinting towards multiple variants. The bike still misses on ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System), and features like handlebar and blinkers are sourced from the outgoing model. It also gets upside down forks combined with front disc brakes.

The bike’s new-gen model will come with a new Racing Blue shade along with the Grey and Red and White combinations. Designed for the tracks, the 2017 Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0 is claimed more refined, powerful, faster and feature-rich than the current model. First launched in 2008, the Yamaha YZF R15 proved to be a runway success for the Japanese two-wheeler maker in India. This 150cc bike received its first makeover in 2011 as YZF R15 V2.


2017 Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Launch Date

The new Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0 will go on sale in India sometime next year. Though, no official confirmation has been made yet about its launch.

2017 Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Price in India

Minimum Rs 1.30 lakh
Maximum Rs 1.35 lakh

With several new features, design updates and refined engine, the new Yamaha YZF R15 V3 is expected to be more expensive than the current generation. It is estimated to be priced around Rs 1.30 lakh – Rs 1.35 (ex-showroom).

New Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Specifications

Engine 155cc, single-cylinder, SOHC with VVA
Max Power 18-20bhp
Max Torque 17-18Nm
Transmission 6-speed

Power for the new Yamaha R15 V3 will come from a new 155cc VVA, single-cylinder SOHC engine that also does duty in the NVX 155 scooter. Though, this motor will be tuned for producing more power and torque. With Variable Valve Actuation (VVA), the bike’s new powertrain will be compact and offer sharper throttle response. We expect it to deliver power close to 18-20bhp and torque output could be increased up to 17-18Nm. A 6-speed gearbox will continue to perform transmission duties. Also Read – Yamaha MT-03 – Launch Details, Estimated Price, Specs & Pictures

2017 Yamaha R15 V3 Design

Folks at Motoblast has released yet another rendering of the new-gen R15 V3.0 based on the spy images. As mentioned above, the bike will receive a new Racing Blue colour along with the Blue, Red, Black and White colour schemes. Design upgrades might include new body panels, LED headlamps, revised rear view mirrors, a digital instrument cluster with blue backlights, re-designed rear etc.

Features such as pillion seat, wheel design and exhaust could be borrowed from the M-Slaz. The new Yamaha R15 V3 will also derive its design cues from the Yamaha YZF R125 and YZF R6. With all the aforementioned changes, the new-gen R15 will surely look a lot sportier than the current model. Since the company has already announced that there will be improvement in safety, we do expect it to come with anti-lock braking system (ABS).

This is all what we have for now on Yamaha R15 V3.0, stay tuned to IndiaCarNews for more updates on this.

      Resale value has never been a problem with Bajaj Pulsar range. And the RS200 surely is a decent product, take a test ride and you’ll know.

    We need R15 to be powered by 200 c.c engine. Please guys, have some meaning to the upgrades of the bike after 4-5 yrs of launching the version 2. If you can’t upgrade the bike which is meaning full to buy the upgraded version 3, I don’t think you will do good in the market these ongoing yrs, because you’ll have to compete with lot of other very good alternative bikes like ktm,suzuki,bajaj.. what not else. Hope you’ll come up with good one i mean a better one ..!
