Yamaha R15 V3 Darknight Edition Review

29 Jun, 2022 02:35 PM

Quick Review by Maxabout Team

Born of the Yamaha racing DNA, Dark Knight is the third iteration of the R15 series and one of the four colour options it is offered in. The Yamaha R15 V3 was first launched in 2017 in Indonesia and made its way to India in March 2019 and the Dark Knight scheme was added later that year in December, which resulted in the first price hike since its launch.

Sharper aggressive eyes, muscular tank, aerodynamic front and edgy tail add to its legacy of challenging spirits boldly. Designed to assist in overall airflow, the twin-eye LED headlights efficiently offer light in the darkest of nights. Installed with a 20mm lower passenger seat which provides a comfortable pillion position and is easily accessible, compared to R15 V2.

It houses a BS6-compliant 155cc LC4V SOHC FI engine that churns out 18.6 HP @ 10,000 rpm and 14.1 Nm @ 8,500 rpm featuring an advanced die-cast aluminium (DiASil) cylinder with outstanding cooling performance. High-performance Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) system that is built to provide torque even at low rpm to ensure good power and torque is present throughout the rev range.

It comes mated with a 6-speed transmission with a wet-type multi-plate clutch aided with the assist and slipper function to reduce the weight of the clutch pull and provide low-stress shifting during deceleration. Braking duties are handled with 282mm front and 220mm rear disc brakes with dual-channel ABS. 140mm wide radial rear tyre for better cornering and superior shock absorption and in-built side stand engine cut-off switch is some added comfort features to R15 V3.

Yamaha R15 V3 is suspended on a delta box frame with telescopic forks at the front and monocross (link suspension) at the rear. It comes with a full digital LCD multi-function instrument cluster with a gear shift indicator and VVA indicator in addition to all the other display information. They have installed the R15 V3 with the dual horn as well, which splits the sound into higher and lower decibels.

Yamaha offered R15 V3 in 4 colour schemes and various variants with Dark Knight Edition priced at Rs 1,59,700 (Ex-Showroom, Delhi) before its discontinuation.

My Journey with R15 V3

amardeep singh | 2 years ago

It was the year 2018, My Bajaj Pulsar had completed 15 years, so I was looking on the net for a new bike. When I saw it for the first time, an arrow of love went across my heart, although it had some shortcomings, in spite of this, I bought it and thought whatever will happen will be seen, the only drawback was only the headlight and riding position. Today is the month of 2021 September and today I am claiming that there is no match for it. I have taken it on the hills, on the highways, and on the rough village roads, but its performance is amazing, although the riding position is so aggressive that it hurts in the back but the performance is such that this thing is forgivable, I do exercise continuously to keep me fit to ride this beast and that's why I am fit because this bike is for the youth and for long running you must be fit as youth to ride it, so today I am also fit because of it, thank you for this. Good mileage, superior performance, looks, good reliable engine make it a clear winner wherever you go. This is my journey with R15 V3.

Best Features: After VVA activation it behave like a superbike and slipper clutch at high speed is just awesome.

Pros: Good mileage, superior performance, outstanding looks, reliable engine

Cons: Head light throw, Aggressive Position
