Yamaha YZF-R15 V3 Matte Black Review

26 Jul, 2018 08:30 AM

Quick Review by Maxabout

Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 Monster Energy Edition brought the matte black shade into existence for the Indian market. It was not officially launched but one can see how neat the motorcycle looks in the Indonesian spec black shade and green fairing highlights. Every panel on this motorcycle is studded with a green finished monster logo while side fairing gets additional Monster Energy branding. Those looking forward to this shade can get their existing bike wrapped in matte black as Yamaha may not introduce this shade as standard before festive season of 2018. Mechanically, the motorcycle stays exactly the same as its stock version.

R15 V3 is powered by an all-new 155.1cc, variable valve actuated engine producing 19.03 BHP at 10,000 rpm and 15 Nm at 8,500 rpm. This engine is the most powerful 150cc option in India as almost similar sized motor in Gixxer SF is good for just 14.6 BHP. Peak performance is mind-blowing as VVA helps rider enjoy the most impressive ride ever through equally effective low and high range. The stock version of Yamaha R15 V3 costs INR 1.25 lakh. The price difference of INR 6000 with R15 V2 gets justified with the addition of a slipper clutch, LED lights, all-digital console, bigger tyre and almost R1 inspired fuel tank.

Yamaha made this R15 V3 more practical by raising its ground clearance to 170mm. It claimed a much lower value in Indonesia. Top speed for R15 V3 is 136 kmph while optional accessories like Metzeler tyres, Daytona exhaust and much more makes it even highly effective against 200cc bikes of India. Stock shade options include Thunder Grey and Racing Blue in India. Yamaha R15 V3 comes with a track specific wheelbase of 1325 mm, helping the rider stay intact on sudden turns and high-speed cornering.
