New Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 India Launch Details, Images, Tech Specs and Expected Prices

Added in: News

Update: A new avatar of what is the sportiest 150cc motorcycle in India, the 2018 Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 is ready for launch in January 2018. Reportedly spotted at a dealership wearing all its final decals, bells and whistles, like its predecessor, the 2018 YZF-R15’s styling is heavily influenced by the top-of-the-line R1 Superbike.


As fans of the motorcycle perhaps already know, the India-spec R15 gets conventional front forks instead of the USD type which the bike gets in other markets. Powering the new Yamaha R15 V3.0 will be an all-new 155cc engine with VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) technology as can be seen courtesy of the decal running across the front fairing. This single cylinder liquid cooled motor produces 19.3 PS at 10,000 rpm and 14.7 Nm of torque at 8500 rpm. The engine is paired to a six speed transmission. LED illumination, a Deltabox frame, an all-digital instrument console and all other goodies which the new bike gets internationally should make it on the R15 here too.

We’ve been eagerly awaiting of the next generation Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 and recent sightings of the motorcycle on Indian roads confirmed the fact that it isn’t too far from reaching showrooms. However, as seen in previous spy images, the India spec version will get one major hardware revision. The India spec model will miss out on the USD forks and instead use conventional telescopic suspension upfront. Apart from that, we could not spot many differences between the international spec and India bound model. Here’s everything we know about the India bound Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0.
