Yamaha R15 V3 Race Edition Review

15 Nov, 2018 12:02 PM

Overview

Yamaha R15 V3 Race Edition was unveiled at the 2018 Auto Expo with a host of additional accessories that were responsible for increasing its performance much fold and did add onto its appeal. The sports bike is equipped with rear Metzeler radial tyre and a Daytona Exhaust with an additional USB connector, frame sliders, tank pad, seat covers and more. With a 155 cc cylinder at its heart, the Yamaha R15 Race edition was specifically launched keeping in mind the racing circuit.

Yamaha R15 V3 race edition is powered by a 155.1 cc, Liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, 4-valve, Fi, Single-Cylinder, VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) engine capable of producing a maximum power of 19.3PS and an utmost torque of 15 Nm. The power quotient expanding from 17 HP to 19.5 HP is certainly appreciated.

The rear Metzeler radial tyre costs an additional INR 9,998 while the other parts of the racing kit such as Daytona Exhaust had a premium of INR 16,700. The Daytona Exhaust was specifically made for the race tracks and it is not road-legal. The Metzeler tyres have a soft compound so as to offer an extra grip over the track making the Yamaha R15 V3 Race Edition stand out as one of the most superior sports bikes within a budget.

Coming to the suspension, the duties are handled by telescopic forks at the front while the rear tyre gets a monoshock absorber. The Yamaha R15 V3 Race Edition gets 282 mm single disc brakes at the front and 220 mm single disc brakes at the rear. The absence of ABS does seem a bit disappointing. The all-digital instrument console with the modern technology is quite up to the mark while the LED twin headlights and LED tail light gives it an utmost sporty stance. The engine equipped with VVA makes the deliver more flexible. The Yamaha R15 V3 Race Edition is available in the market two stunning shades- Racing Blue, and Thunder Grey.
