Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Design
Yamaha hasn’t tinkered around with the styling of the new R15. Like most supersports, it gets a sharp and edgy bodywork. While the graphics on the Thunder Grey and Dark Knight colours look similar to the BS4 bike, the Racing Blue version gets refreshed graphics, a silver strip, and the R15 logo plastered across the fairing.
Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Features
The Yamaha R15 features sleek twin LED headlights and an LED tail lamp. It gets a full-digital LCD dash that displays a range of information. You get two trip meters, an average fuel efficiency indicator, a gear position indicator, and a bar-type tachometer. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard. The R15 V3 also gets Variable Valve Actuation, Yamaha lingo for variable valve timing. Thanks to the tech, the R15 can eke out maximum top-end performance without sacrificing on low-end grunt.
Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Competitors

Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Variants

What is good and bad in R15 V3?
- R15 V3 PositivesPerfect track tool for those who are beginning sport riding.Variable Valve Actuation makes the R15 a lot more usable in everyday situations.Rear radial tyre is standard and you get the option to fit grippy Metzeler rubber.
- R15 V3 NegativesRiding posture is on the committed side.Build quality and fit and finish levels have dipped massively.LED headlight fails to light up the road.
- Expert’s ConclusionThe R15 v3 remains one potent small-capacity supersport for beginners. In its version 3.0 guise, it has become sharper and more focused, making it great for sport riding or trac enthusiasts. However, the aggressive riding stance could cause discomfort if you intend to use the bike for daily commuting and quality of components have also gone down.
