New 2014 Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0 to come with at least 4 new color options

| March 14, 2014 | 12 Comments

Only a couple of days back, we reported about the mechanical changes that the upcoming 2014 Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0 would carry. Back then, the details that have leaked on the cyber space were supported by an image of the soon-t0-be-launched R15 facelift, which revealed that the bike could get a new colour scheme, that of Black and Grey. Now, our friend Kirthan D, from Mysore, claims to have got to know about some more new colour options with which the new bike would be offered. While the pics of these are yet to come to us, the previous spy pics you see here do reveal two of the four new colour options we’ve got to know of.

Four new colour options for the 2014 Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0 would be-

  • Black and Golden
  • Grey and Black (Different to current scheme)
  • Red and White (Different to current scheme)
  • Blue and White (Different to current scheme)

We’ve got to know that several Yamaha Motor India dealers across the country have already started receiving the first batch of the updated model and the new 2014 Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0 launch could happen sometime next month. From what we’ve been hearing, the new R15 V3.0 price in India would be same as the current model, which means that the ex-showroom price would be pegged around the INR 1.15 Lakhs figure.

Other than these really minor visual changes, the bike looks very similar to the V2.0 model that is currently on sale. Mechanical upgrades for the updated bike consist only of a re-mapped ECU, which has led to a small increase in the bike’s max power output (18 PS vs 17 PS earlier). Also, it has bestowed the bike with a different torque curve. While the peak torque figure, at 15 Nm, has remained unchanged, the bike gets a more punchier mid-range, thereby making the bike friendlier to urban usage.

Stay tuned to Motoroids for more updates on the refreshed R15.

    its already on sale in yamaha showrooms and is being called version2 only.. not 3. plz clarify what it is.. also there is no update on yamaha website as well..

    • To the best of our knowledge, Yamaha recently came up with these colour options for the R15. However, on the same time, it has been working on an improved R15 that would get some mechanical updates but would look the same. This upcoming model is being called as V3. Right now though, there is no official word sent out by Yamaha Motor India, neither about new colour schemes nor about V3 launch.

    hey………….is it worth to pay 1 lac for 150 cc

    • It’s a very capable machine in terms of handling. True, more power would have been better, but the R15 really makes a lot of sense to the rookies who want to learn how to ride well. It’s slightly overpriced, but the Yamaha R15 packs in great technology and is quite unique in terms of the handling package it offers. We’d say its worth the money
