The motorcycle is available to the customers at a starting price tag of INR 1,45,800 while the overall sporty profile of the motorcycle has been kept the same with an addition of technology-rich features. The motorcycle has been able to establish itself as one of the most appreciated track-focused sports machines available in the Indian markets.

Design and Style

Coming to the aggressive sports motorcycle styling, the BS6 Yamaha R15 V3 has been equipped with track-specific bits. The brand has equipped the motorcycle with sharper body panels which have been complemented by an LED headlight set up at the front. The overall graphic detailing of the updated motorcycle variants has been tweaked a bit though the finely-tuned minimalistic character has been retained to add to its muscular profile. The brand has finally positioned the pillion seat on the motorcycle on a bit lower side catering to the issues faced by customers.

Engine and Gearbox

Powering the BS6 Yamaha R15 V3 is a 155cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine that is now BS6compliant and capable of churning out a maximum power of 18.6HP at 10,000 rpm and an utmost torque of 14.1Nm at 8,500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Instrument Console

The brand has equipped the BS6 Yamaha R15 V3 with a fully-digital instrument unit that offers the necessary riding details. The instrument unit has been shod with a speedometer, tachometer, odometer as well as a fuel gauge. The brand has further equipped the newly revised BS6 compliant motorcycle with a side stand engine and a dual horn in addition to offering a radial tyre at the back.

Dimensions, Mileage and Top Speed

The R15 V3 which has now been equipped with a BS6-compliant engine measures 1,990mm in length, 725mm in width, and 1,135mm in height. The kerb weight of the motorcycle stands at 139 kgs while the fuel tank capacity stands at 11 litres.

The braking power is offered by a 282mm disc brake at the front with a twin-piston calliper and a 220mm disc brake at the rear with a single-piston calliper. The brand has equipped the motorcycle with a 100/80-17 M/C 52P section tyre at the front and 140/70-17 M/C 66H section tyre at the rear.

Graphics and Colour Options

For its BS6 compliant engine update, the motorcycle has been equipped with almost similar graphic detailing when compared to its last-gen version. The motorcycle can be availed in the markets in three colour options namely Thunder Grey, Racing Blue, and Dark Knight (Matte Black). The Racing Blue colour variant of the motorcycle has been imparted silver graphic detailing on the body panels as well as the R15 logo on the front fender while the graphic detailing for the remaining two colour schemes remains the same when compared to their BS4 avatars. The Thunder Grey colour scheme of the BS6 Yamaha R15 V3 is priced at INR 1,48,300 while the Racing Blue and Dark Knight colour options are available at INR 1,46,900 and INR 1,47,900 (ex-showroom) respectively.

Verdict

The BS6 Yamaha R15 V3 has been able to establish itself on top of the budget sports motorcycle segment in the Indian markets. The delta-box frame offered to the motorcycle is capable of offering better handling on the corners thus making it one of the most sought-after sports bikes in India.
