Yamaha R15 v3.0 to launch in India by Diwali. Is this true?
Yamaha has officially hinted at the launch of the new Yamaha R15 by the end of 2017. Diwali would be the best period for its launch as people prefer buying new products in the festive season and R15 definitely has a huge fan base in India. The second reason that hinted at its launch in the last quarter of 2017 was seen when Yamaha updated the official website. They kept the existing shades for R15 and R15-S while all other models were updated.
This further clears the fact that Yamaha would straight away bring the R15 V3.0 to India. The new motorcycle comes with a 155.1 cc, single cylinder engine with VVA, producing 19.04 BHP and 14.5 Nm of torque. This makes it the most powerful motorcycle in its segment, clearly winning over global rivals like Suzuki GSX-R150 and Honda CBR150R. It is expected to be priced around INR 1.3 lakh while chances of the figure going further up are also true.
