Yamaha YZF R15 V3

Yamaha R15 V3.0 is set to receive new updates inspired by R6 and R3 models in the R-Series. The fully-faired entry level sports bike was recently unveiled in Indonesia and is expected to be officially available for sale in India sometime this year. Aesthetically, the bike will receive new elements for an improved appearance in addition to additional kit and tweaked mechanicals. The Delta Box frame has been retained from the previous model albeit it witnesses subtle change including the new swingarm.

Yamaha has altered the overall design for a new look reminiscent of the R6 bike. New elements on the R15 V3.0 like the reshaped twin set-up headlamp in front, reworked fuel tank with large extensions and sharp fairing confer a refreshed look on the bike. Power on the new R15 V3.0 will be sourced from the new 155cc, single cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with fuel injection and SOHC technology. Mated to a six-speed transmission, the engine is tuned to produce 19.3bhp of power and 14.7Nm of torque.

The twin-seat layout is carried over from the preceding model but the saddle height has been increased. In addition, there is an all-new digitized instrument cluster that replaces the analog-digital cluster from the current model. Other dynamics are optimized for better riding position, like the slightly tweaked fairing for thigh and chest support.

MinimumRs 1.30 lakh
MaximumRs 1.35 lakh

Yamaha have conferred design updates on the R15 V3.0 in tandem with the R3 and R6 models from the R-Series. Additionally it will also receive a new engine and equipment, inferring price change. With the above updates the Yamaha R15 V3.0 price is estimated to fall in the range of Rs 1.30 lakh and Rs 1.35 lakh (ex-showroom).

2017 Yamaha R15 V3 Design

Yamaha has tweaked the Delta Box slightly for the updated R15 V3 which now features a new aluminium swingarm. Addition of new elements like the full-fairing high-set riding position and twin-seat layout with contoured seats enhance the visual appearance. It also gets new LED headlamp unit in front and new body panels on the side. The rear facet is changed too and the new digital instrument cluster with blue colour backlights replaces the current analog-digital unit.

The aggression in front comes from the new fairing that has been crafted for better thigh and chest support. Dual-split headlamp cluster with middle air-inlet and larger fuel tank accentuates the assertive look. It is expected that the bike will come with front USD forks.

Equipment wise, the entry level sports bike will get M-Slaz inspired pillion seat, wheel design and exhaust. It will also source some design cues from YZF-R6. On the safety front, the updated R15 V3 will equip anti-lock-brakes.

New Yamaha R15 V3 Specifications

Engine155cc, single-cylinder, SOHC with VVA
Max Power19.04bhp @10,000rpm
Max Torque14.7Nm @8,500rpm

The fully-faired entry level sports bike will use a new 155.1cc, single cylinder, liquid-cooled 4-stroke engine with fuel injection and SOHC technology. The 4-valve engine is sourced from the NVX 155 scooter and has been calibrated for improved output. This is achieved by injecting engine with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) for increased throttle response. It also keeps the fuel combustion in control at different speeds and throttle response. With the above tech, the new 155.1cc engine makes 19.04bhp of power at 10,000rpm and 14.7Nm torque at 8,500rpm. Power is transmitted through a six-speed gearbox.

      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 ..!
