The Yamaha R15 V3.0 really introduced the small capacity performance motorcycling segment in the country, where performance was priority.
Almost a decade since its launch, the 150cc track-scorcher still remains a favourite among enthusiasts and has aged gracefully with both the Version 1 and Version 2 models on sale. However, the R15 is all set to receive an overhaul soon and the Version 3 was recentlyspied testing in the country. The Yamaha R15 V3 went on sale internationally earlier this year and was spotted without any camouflage, hinting towards a launch soon.
The spy images reveal a host of details on the India-spec Yamaha R15 V3. Compared to the international version, the Indian model misses out on Upside-down front forks, which have been replaced by the more cost effective telescopic units. The bike also ditches ABS on the domestic version, while the IRC tyres have been swapped for locally made MRFs.
