The R15 is a really great bike with characteristics loved by enthusiasts who would let it loose on the track. Now with the 2019 Yamaha R15 V3 ABS, the manufacturer is finally offering ABS which will be mandatory for the company to offer under the upcoming BS6 laws. The R15 V3 does not get a single channel ABS unit that most manufacturers would think is cost effective. The bike will actually get a dual channel ABS unit which will make the bike extremely safe and aid the rider more effectively.
The 2019 Yamaha R15 V3 ABS will mostly be offered with only an ABS model and the R15 V3 non-ABS model is going to be discontinued.
