Yamaha R15 V3 was recently launched in India for INR 1.25 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It was not just the stock version that raised eyebrows as R15 V3 Race-Spec variant took the performance quotient higher by a considerable margin.
Use of Daytona free flow exhaust, track spec Metzeler tyres and frame friendly body sliders have raised the overall component list of R15 V3. This typical version is said to generate 22 HP of maximum power. It was not made official whether some changes were made to engine components or not.
Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 is the most impressive product that Indian fans got through Auto Expo 2018. It is affordable (compared to expensive track spec machines) and will keep operating costs lower for beginners in terms of track racing.
Frame sliders are helpful when sport bikes suddenly fall while stock MRF tyres won’t work that well on high speed track chasing. Cost for this modification was not revealed by Yamaha.
