Yamaha R15 V3 Wins India Design Mark Award (2019)

Yamaha R15 V3 recently got the India Design Mark Award, making it the second R15 variant in the last decade to have this prestigious moment in the Indian market. The most powerful 150cc motorcycle of the country, R15 V3 is equally known for its supersport design lines and fine aerodynamic detailing. The top-spec Darknight variant is priced at INR 1.42 lakh while the standard model costs INR 1.40 lakh. Both the prices are ex-showroom Delhi. Indian Design Council counts various parameters for different bikes before finalizing the winner, and it seems like Yamaha R15 V3 gave them not even a single negative point.
