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. The recently launched Bajaj Dominar 400 has changed the pricing game, whats more, the new Yamaha FZ25 too has been priced aggressively. This has affected the buying pattern and buyers should be expecting a lower pricing for this 150cc engine.

The new Yamaha R15 V3 has been derived from its elder siblings. There is a clear resemblance in its styling with the R6 and other design elements are also shared. The new bike looks stylish and appealing. The new Yamaha R15 V3 looks wider with its new fascia and the windshield seems to be larger than before. The bike shall remain low in height and the mirrors appear to be bigger. At the same time, side profile seems to be designed more like the bigger Yamaha bikes.

    r15 v3

    The looks & specifications are awesome…..but there is no abs system & the price is too much for the 150cc bikes……..bajaj pulsar Rs200 is lowest price compare with r15 v3 with abs system…. i like the looks very much but seat height is little bit higher than r15 v3 so it is little disappointment for short guys…exhaust sound also not stunned like bajaj pulsar Rs200……….finally, the bike is good bt not worth for above 1.4lakh

    This review is messed up!

    The top speed is ,I’m sure, definitely not 115kmph.
    What is this pricing that you’re talking bout? I’m really confused. You say that the v3 will be priced aggressively. Later you say that it’s price will be the same as the v2.

    Get your facts straight before reviewing.

    #Lazy

    Don’t be so lazy – you have the specs ready but didn’t take any effort to correct the article! And did you really mean it when you said the top speed would be 115 kmph?

    Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
