The Yamaha R15 V3 has just been revealed. It gets several new features and the new bike looks bigger than ever. It doesn’t look sharper than before, but it looks a lot more grown up than ever.

Yamaha R15 V3 Price in India
|Variant||Expected Price (on-road)|
|Expected lower price||INR 1.5 lakhs|
|Expected higher price||INR 1.6 lakhs|
In terms of costing, the Yamaha R15 V3 will be priced a lot more aggressively. As today 400cc bikes have seen a drastic drop in the pricing, we expect the new bike to be priced at INR 1.5 lakhs to INR 1.6 lakhs (on-road). This will be similar to the current Yamaha R15 V2 pricing. There won’t be an increase in the pricing of this bike.
Yasuo Ishihara, Managing Director, Yamaha Motor Research & Development India Pvt Ltd (YMRI) stated, “The R15 will become better in its next iteration, however, no details can be shared as to what would exactly the specifications be like, but we can assure that it will be a step-up from the current generation in all aspects of performance and safety. We also want to extract as much as possible from a motorcycle to give maximum value-for-money for our products.”

The new Yamaha R15 V3 will be powered by a new 155cc engine. However, this new bike will have variable actuators that will help to increase the performance. We expect a boost in power to 19bhp, while the torque will see a minimal increase to 17-18Nm. The same six-speed transmission will be used on the Yamaha R15 V3. This time around, we expect the Yamaha R15 V3 to even get sharper throttle response and Drive by Wire mostly. In terms of safety, ABS will also be offered on the bike. The bike will even get slipper clutch. The company hasn’t announced ABS as a feature, but for the Indian market it will be a mandate requirement.
