Yamaha R15 is one of the most popular and luring sporty motorcycles in the Indian market. The muscular faired design, stylish appearance and a performance engine have played a crucial role in making this bike very appealing. Yamaha introduced the Yamaha R15 V3 way back in 2008 for the first time.
Since then, the bike has remained one of the hot favourites among the young bike enthusiasts with its sleek package. The Indian customers, specially the new-generation buyers, are leaning toward more sporty bikes than simple boring commuter models.
Here is the information about new version of Yamaha R15 V3
Specifications and Features of Yamaha R15 V3
The Yamaha R15 V3 is powered by an all-new bigger 155 cc single-cylinder, fuel-injected, SOHC, liquid-cooled, VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) four-stroke engine. Paired with a six-speed transmission, this engine churns out maximum power of 19.3 hp at 10,000 rpm and 14.7 Nm of peak torque delivered at 8,500 rpm.
The current generation Yamaha R15 draws power from a 149 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine; which is mated to a 6-speed transmission.
This engine kicks out 17 PS of peak power at 8,500 rpm and 15 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm. It also returns a fuel efficiency of 42 kmpl and the bike can run at a top speed of 130 kmph. To reach 0 – 60 kmph, the present R15 takes 4.89 seconds.
Expect the upcoming model to come faster than R15 V2 as the engine is equipped with Yamaha’s VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) technology for improved performance at higher revs. This is to offset the low torque and provide more tractable powerband and power across the whole rev range. The V3’s motor also has a higher compression ratio compared to the existing 149cc engine.
