Yamaha R15 Version 3 is an impressive machine and modifications help it feel even more exclusive than the rest of the sports bikes in its class. Shubham Ugale from Mumbai recently fitted his motorcycle with an extra pair of projector lights under the all-LED headlight setup, replicating the setup seen on the R1 and R6 to some extent. The four lights at the front make this typical Yamaha R15 a great machine to ride in pitch dark conditions. The bike you see here is Mumbai’s first R15 V3 with a custom wrap.
Apart from the addition of projector lights, this particular R15 V3 features cool graphics on the front and side fairing, looking even better with the black contrasting film on the stock R15 visor. The impressive flowing effect of the wrap further improves the overall looks of this modified Yamaha R15 V3. Not just that, the smoke effect created within the photos looks awesome.
The owner of the motorcycle is a wrap artist, freelancing on demand for both car and bike wraps. Apart from these electrical changes, no performance addition has been made to the BS4 model of the bike. It continues to be powered by a 155.1cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine, producing 19.3 HP of power and 14.7 Nm of torque. At present, the stock model of the BS6-compliant R15 Version 3.0 is available for INR 1.45 lakh (ex-showroom India).
