Yamaha YZF R15 V3

Yamaha R15 V3.0 will undergo some cosmetic and mechanical updates sometime this year. Styling updates on the bike are likely to be inspired by R3 and R6 models from the R-Series. Aside from cosmetic changes, the bike is set to get mechanical tweaks and additional features. The Delta Box from the previous model will be carried over albeit it will come with subtle changes including a new swingarm.

In a bid to give new look to the bike Yamaha has added new elements borrowed from the R6 model. Other elements such as reworked twin set-up headlamp, revised fuel tank with extensions and sharp fairing altogether enhance the overall look.  The twin-seat layout remains unchanged while the saddle height has been increased. The bike comes with changed dynamics for improved riding position and restyled fairing that offers better thigh and chest support.

Another major change on the R15 V3 is the new 155cc single cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine with SOHC technology. Tuned to deliver 19.3bho of maximum power and 14.7Nm of torque, the engine will be paired to a six-speed transmission.

    Is RS 200 worth buying ??? Will it have resale value ???

      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 ..!
