|
Added in: Comparisons

The Yamaha YZF-R15 version 3.0 was launched in India at the 2018 Auto Expo but there was a beautiful migraine that the Japanese 155cc motorcycle will have to deal with – the Aprilia RS150. While the Yamaha YZF-R15 version 3.0 has already arrived in India, the scaled-down Italian motorcycle is still some time away. So we decided to compare the technical specifications of the two motorcycles.

Before we proceed, we’d like to add a disclaimer that all the specifications of the RS150 were not available at the time of publishing this comparison.

Internationally, the Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 comes equipped with upside-down telescopic forks. However, the India spec version features a conventional front fork. Apart from that, the India spec Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 is identical to the international model. The motorcycle uses the new 155cc Liquid Cooled, 4-stroke, Single-Cylinder SOHC engine that also features Assist and Slipper Clutch. The motorcycle also features a full-LED headlight and R1-styled cockpit equipped with a full-color LCD instrument gauge with shift light and VVA indicator.

The Aprilia RS150 that was showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo was equipped with a upside down telescopic front fork. We’re still not sure if that will be retained at the time of the India launch of the motorcycle. The motorcycle draws styling cues from the litre-class RSV4 and is one of the most appealing 150cc motorcycles out there. The complete specifications of the motorcycle are unavailable but we should hear some more details in the coming months. The motorcycle is expected to arrive in the Indian market in 2019.
