New Yamaha YZF R15 India Launch In Late 2017
Yamaha R15 V3.0 is set to receive new updates inspired by R6 and R3 models in the R-Series. The fully-faired entry level sports bike was recently unveiled in Indonesia and is expected to be officially available for sale in India sometime this year. Aesthetically, the bike will receive new elements for an improved appearance in addition to additional kit and tweaked mechanicals. The Delta Box frame has been retained from the previous model albeit it witnesses subtle change including the new swingarm.
Yamaha has altered the overall design for a new look reminiscent of the R6 bike. New elements on the R15 V3.0 like the reshaped twin set-up headlamp in front, reworked fuel tank with large extensions and sharp fairing confer a refreshed look on the bike. Power on the new R15 V3.0 will be sourced from the new 155cc, single cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with fuel injection and SOHC technology. Mated to a six-speed transmission, the engine is tuned to produce 19.3bhp of power and 14.7Nm of torque.
The twin-seat layout is carried over from the preceding model but the saddle height has been increased. In addition, there is an all-new digitized instrument cluster that replaces the analog-digital cluster from the current model. Other dynamics are optimized for better riding position, like the slightly tweaked fairing for thigh and chest support.
