Yamaha YZF-R15 V3 MotoGP Review

Expert Review by Maxabout

Yamaha is all-set to launch the R15 V3 MotoGP edition in India and it will remain essentially the same machine as the standard version but brings along some cosmetic changes that will cause its price to increase by around INR 2000-3000. R15 V3.0 is a decently selling product of Yamaha and the entry of MotoGP version into the Indian market as a limited edition bike will only increase the craze that motor-heads have for the bike.

The engine that powers the monstrosity remains the same as the standard model of R15 V3, the 155cc liquid-cooled engine with a single cylinder produces maximum power of 19.3 hp and max torque of 15 Nm at its peak, making it the most powerful 150cc motorcycle that is currently on sale in India. The international version of the bike gets inverted forks up front while the Indian version is equipped with conventional telescopic units, which helped Yamaha to keep the cost of the bike in check.

The standard features like the USB charging port, the digital instrument panel, and the LED headlamps remain the same as on the regular version of the bike. The Indian version of the Yamaha R15 MotoGP edition will come with MRF tires instead of the IRC tires that are available on the international version. This has been done in order to keep the cost of the bike lowered and also because market surveys report that less than 20% of the bike owners take their bikes to the track, thereby they would never feel the difference.

Yamaha and MotoGP have had a long-lasting connection for as long as one can remember and the MotoGP edition serves as a constant reminder of this relationship. R15 V3 MotoGP edition will keep the legacy of Yamaha and MotoGP alive and has now brought its customers in the loop of that relationship as well.
