Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 has been offered with a new Metallic Red paint scheme in India and will be available with three other existing colour options- Dark Knight, Racing Blue and Thunder Gray. Interested customers can avail the new metallic red shade across the brand’s dealerships in the country at a price of Rs. 1.52 lakh. The motorcycle`s appearance looks sharper due to the addition of the new matte red and black colour scheme.
Apart from the new colour scheme, the Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 retains the same features and style. The model is powered by the 155cc liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, fuel-injected, 4-valve engine and has used the same Variable Valve Actuation(VVA) technology. The engine is also mated to a 6-speed gearbox. It produces a maximum power of 18.3 bhp at 10,000 rpm and a peak torque of 14.1 Nm at 8500 rpm. The company uses telescopic forks at the front and a mono-shock at the rear to handle the suspension duties. A 282 mm disc at the front and a 220 mm disc at the rear handle the motorcycle’s braking functions.
The Yamaha R15 V3.0 is also equipped with many features such as LED headlamps, LCD instrument console with gear-shift indicator, side stand cut-off switch, dual horn, and a dual-channel ABS. A Deltabox frame with an aluminium swingarm underpins the Yamaha R15 model.
The Yamaha R15 has been the most sought-after entry-level performance motorcycle on sale and has mostly appealed to the young generation. It is expected that people will love the new colour addition and that would drive up the model’s sales in India. The Yamaha R15 will face competition mainly from the KTM RC 125 and Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 in the domestic market.
