Price of Yamaha R15 Version 3 Officially Announced in Indonesia

This will place the R15 version 3.0 at INR 1.35 lakh (approx), making it the most expensive 150 cc motorcycle after its official launch in India. The change in price can be justified with the addition of front LED headlights, USD front suspension, better instrument console, all-new design and the bigger 155.1cc engine with VVA technology. The same is good for 19.04 BHP at 10,000 rpm and 14.7 Nm at 8500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox that supports slipper clutch and claims a top speed of 144 kmph (speedo indicated). It weighs just 137 kg and carries a smaller 11 liter fuel tank on the 2017 model.


Yamaha R15 version 3.0 will rival none other than the aging Honda CBR150R. It is least powerful when compared to the new version and Honda may think of bringing the new CBR150R in India after the launch of R15. Yamaha showcased the third generation R15 in Racing Blue, Matte Black and Matte Red shade in Indonesia. The seat height has been increased to 815 mm while ground clearance still stays high at 155 mm. Yamaha uses a 282 mm front disc brake while ABS is still not on offer on the 2017 variant.
