About YZF R15 V3

The YZF-R15 changed the 150cc segment in the Indian market the way the CBZ did when it was launched. It was an everyday motorcycle that could genuinely be used as a trackday tool. The second version of the R15 traded practicality for more focused performance, but the advent of the KTM RC200 meant that a far better performance was available for the sportbike enthusiast at a similar price. The R15 Version 3.0 reduces that gap significantly with technology. On the list is an engine with a few more ccs, but featuring variable valve timing which takes the maximum power output to nearly 19bhp with a nominal decrease in torque which is now spread over a wider rev range. It also gets all-LED lamps and an all-digital LCD instrument cluster that displays a wealth of information, including when the Variable Valve Actuation switches to the different camshaft profile.

While the global model gets goodies like upside down forks, the Indian version features conventional telescopic forks in order to keep costs in check. The pillion seat seems to be positioned a little lower, at least visually, which should address some of the pillion complaints. The rear side panels have a Ducati Panigale-style gap which looks attractive when viewed from behind. Grab handles for the pillion have also been cleverly integrated, which was given a miss in the Version 2.0. The motorcycle features disc brakes at both ends and is now equipped with dual-channel ABS as standard equipment.

The R15 Version 3.0 is available in colour shades of Racing Blue, Thunder Grey and new Darknight option which fetches an additional premium of Rs 3000.

The R15 Version 3.0 competes against the KTM RC 200 and the Bajaj Pulsar RS200, but as always, it occupies its own niche in the Indian market as the sportiest 150cc offering out there.
