In advanced of its launch in India, the new Yamaha YZF-R15's images that provide a detailed look at the motorcycle and its features have been leaked. Both the normal and M versions of the Yamaha YZF-R15 will be offered.

The YZF-R15 will feature a redesigned front fascia in its most recent edition, which will include an updated design. New features including a Bluetooth-enabled instrument cluster will also benefit the new model, although this connectivity option will only be offered on the top model of the line. A dual-purpose LED lamp will also be added to the modified model's front end. Along with having traction control as standard equipment, the motorcycle will also include a quick shifter as an additional.

Although leaked homologation documents confirming the revised model's continued use of the same 155cc engine, the specifics of the mechanical characteristics are still unknown. Though it has less power than the V3.0, the new motorcycle still has some power. Accordi

My Journey with R15 V3

amardeep singh | 2 years ago
helpful 1

It was the year 2018, My Bajaj Pulsar had completed 15 years, so I was looking on the net for a new bike. When I saw it for the first time, an arrow of love went across my heart, although it had some shortcomings, in spite of this, I bought it and thought whatever will happen will be seen, the only drawback was only the headlight and riding position. Today is the month of 2021 September and today I am claiming that there is no match for it. I have taken it on the hills, on the highways, and on the rough village roads, but its performance is amazing, although the riding position is so aggressive that it hurts in the back but the performance is such that this thing is forgivable, I do exercise continuously to keep me fit to ride this beast and that's why I am fit because this bike is for the youth and for long running you must be fit as youth to ride it, so today I am also fit because of it, thank you for this. Good mileage, superior performance, looks, good reliable engine make it a clear winner wherever you go. This is my journey with R15 V3.

Best Features: After VVA activation it behave like a superbike and slipper clutch at high speed is just awesome.

Pros: Good mileage, superior performance, outstanding looks, reliable engine

Cons: Head light throw, Aggressive Position
