2018 Yamaha R15 V3 Design

The new 2018 Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 derives some of its design and styling bits from the R1/R6. One of the significant changes will come in the form of revised Delta Box featuring an all-new aluminium swingarm. The motorcycle will also get a newly developed fairing and twin-seat layout. With new full-fairing and several new elements, the fully-faired motorcycle is likely to witness some increase in weight. The global spec model weighs 137kgs, which is 1kg heavier than the R15 V2.

Besides this, the position of the seat has been raised for a comfortable riding experience. The 2018 Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0 features new dual-split LED headlamp at the front end. Styling updates such as new body panels, USD front forks and LED rear lights will round off changes on the bike. The India-spec model will be equipped with conventional telescopic forks instead of the USD front forks. The bike’s new model will be equipped with the regular MRF tyres.

Ditching the analog instrument console, the 2018 Yamaha R15 V3 will get a new digital unit with blue colour backlights. The aerodynamically designed body fairing will offer better thigh and chest support. In line with its sporty appearance, the bike will also receive sculpted fuel tank with 11-litres of capacity. Some of the bits such as the pillion seat, wheel design and exhaust will be carried over from the M-Slaz, whereas other bits will be taken from the larger YZF-R6. It is expected that the new 2018 Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0 could get an optional ABS system. Read: Yamaha Cygnus Ray-ZR – All You Need To Know

      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 ..!
