Yamaha R15 V3 Review

20 Apr, 2018 10:57 PM

Synopsis

Yamaha R15 is one among most sought out bikes of 150cc segment. It is undoubtedly more powerful than ever with this new update. What else you get with this package includes better handling, more stiffer ride and track specific set of optional accessories and components. Yamaha has launched the Version 3.0 in Racing Blue and Thunder Red shade. The second one out of them is matt finished while Racing Blue is all gloss.

Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 is powered by a 155.1cc engine, which develops maximum power of 19.30 HP @ 10,000 rpm and maximum torque of 15 NM @ 8500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Yamaha has officially launched the R15 V3 in India @ Auto Expo 2018. The version launched in India is not equipped with USD front forks and ABS. The bike is priced at INR 1.25 Lakhs (Ex-showroom Delhi).

Yamaha is suffering lack of rivals in this segment as only options you get are either from them or a segment ahead. Pricing makes it closer to Pulsar RS200 while engine and performance values are quite different in both cases. Yamaha offers variable valve actuation, dual front LED lights and much more that was not available on the earlier version. Also, they are changing just INR 6,162 for all these impressive additions.

The bike now weighs 3kg over the last generation model. This comes through bigger tyres and addition of components in R15 Version 3.0. As buyers now get 2.3 PS more power than before, the addition of weight never feels on both road as well as track. Riding position is quite dedicated as one needs to lean forward for getting the right sort of grip on R15 V3. It now uses an all digital console for enhanced functionality.
