Only yesterday, we came up with new 2014 Yamaha YZF R15 spy images and details, Now, we are hearing that the new Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0 launch in India would happen next month. The upcoming update for the YZF R15 would be launched in a bid to inject a bit freshness to its aging model and enable it to soldier it on for some more time, before the Japanese bike maker comes up with a comprehensive update/next generation model.
The 2014 Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0 images we have here with us reveal that the 150cc performance bike would be launched with a couple of new colour schemes and body decals. Also, other than these minor visual updates, the bike would also get slightly tweaked engine. The updated R5 YZF 3.0 will have a max power of 18PS, which is 1PS more than that of the current model. While the torque figure, at 15 Nm, remains unchanged, a remapped ECU would lead to a changed torque curve and a more potent mid-range.
It is highly likely that the 2014 Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0 price in India would remain changed, which means that bike could have an ex showroom price of INR 1.12 Lakhs.
