Even though Yamaha brought the R15 Version 3.0 in India this year, the fan following for R15 V2 stays intact over each passing month. The SuperSport machine has clocked an impressive sales number, leaving some highly addictive, rider-centric bikes behind by a considerable margin. For those who cannot claim a state of equilibrium with their stock machine, this R15 V2 Tron Edition will serve as an innovative inspiration. You can even let your bike enjoy exclusivity like no other.
The owner, Shibayan Mandal, has used neon yellow lines over a matt black base wrap, enhancing the already praised design with these exclusive Tron lines. The modifier has used a black headlight wrap to achieve the track bike look out of this R15 V2. The lines can be seen running through the entire body, irrespective of the size and location of the part. An unknown reason resulted in an exception for non-matching pinstripes on the motorcycle. They were left White and matched nothing else on the entire bike.
Yamaha R15 V2 is powered by a 149cc, single cylinder, fuel injected and liquid cooled engine, producing 16.8 BHP and 15 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Yamaha recently launched the updated YZF-R15 in India for INR 1.26 Lakh. It comes with LED headlight, slipper clutch, all-digital instrument console and much more to claim the third generation status on R15 V3. The engine on R15 V3 is even more powerful, producing 19.04 BHP and 15 Nm of torque. R15 is available in three different versions and, the range starts from INR 1.15 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
