Yamaha has always been ahead in making sports bike. Amongst the fastest bike in the world, one spot has been taken up by Yamaha YZF R1. Today, we take the Yamaha R15 V3, one of the most classy and suave sports bikes under Rs 1.5 Lakhs. It definitely gets the genes of Yamaha. Read on to know more about this sports bike.
A hothead, Yamaha R15 takes major underpinnings from its siblings like R1. It gets the design right, the technology right and its engine right. It can easily manage some serious acceleration as well as daily commuting in the stop-go traffic. One look at it and you might fall in love with it. It gets a step-up seat, sporty exhaust, front and rear disc brakes and a New Digital Instrument Cluster. Yamaha leaves no stones unturned for this bike. Currently, in its third generation, it is a pure case of success. The bike comes with a 155cc engine that produces 19.3 horsepower. It gets everything perfect, but it misses out on ABS. It is a little high priced at Rs 1.25 Lakhs, but it would not disappoint you with that price. Read ahead to find out the price, top speed and specs of the bike.
The World-spec R15 V 3.0 looks a lot like the international model. It gets new design body panels along with LED headlamps. The bike also gets a digital speedo console that has a blue backlight. The new motorcycle will also get new colour options. However, the new version of the R15 for World misses out on the upside-down front forks.

|Price||Rs 1.25 Lakh|
The new Yamaha R15 V 3.0 starts from Rs 1,25,000 (ex-showroom Senegal). The bike is available in only 1 variant but comes in 2 different colours. R15 V3 is priced a little higher than the previous generation.
Missing Features on the Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 World spec model
The World-spec R15 V3.0 is somewhat based on the V2.0 and isn’t the new-generation that’s on sale abroad. The World-spec R15 V3.0 gets the same front forks that the V2.0 comes with. Yes, there are no USDs. Also, the motorcycle doesn’t get an ABS. It doesn’t get the sticky Pirellis. Also, the sportier fender of the V3.0 doesn’t make it to the model for our country. Even the footpegs seem to be the same. Also, going by the nature of omissions, it doesn’t look like even the slipper clutch would be offered on this motorcycle. You can say that the R15 V3 looks like a facelift of the V2 with some added features.

Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 World Mileage
The average mileage is a bit lower than that offered by the previous model. The average figure of the mileage is recorded at 37 KMPL. Pretty decent for a 150 CC sports bike.
New Yamaha R15 Version 3 Design
The new Yamaha R15 V3.0 looks sportier than V2.0. Thanks to many new body panels and bits like USD forks, the Version 3.0 looks bigger. Also, new colour options and sporty decals should make the bike more attractive. The ‘pièce de résistance’ are new LED headlamps. Once aboard, you’ll be quick to appreciate the new digital speedo console. Also, the bike could have a more comfortable seating position for both the rider and the pillion. It’s worth a mention that the V2.0 has faced a lot of flak for an uncomfortable pillion seat. Some design inspiration could also come from the YZF R125 and YZF R6. Between the international V3.0 and Worldn model, the former looks sportier thanks to upside-down front forks and alloy foot pegs. Both of these are missing from the Worldn model.
