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.
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.

It shares many design elements from the M-Slaz as well. From the side profile, the bike seems to have taken inspiration from its elder sibling the R6. So, the new design will be a lot sportier and stylish than the current R15.
