This engine of R15 V3 develops a power of 18.6 ps @ 10000 rpm and a torque of 14.1 nm @ 8500 rpm. The Yamaha YZF R15 V3 gets disc brakes in the front and rear. The Yamaha YZF R15 V3 weighs 142 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 11 liters. The Yamaha YZF R15 V3 is offered in 3 colours: Racing Blue, Thunder Grey and Dark Knight.

Aside from the chunky cat-con, the R15 v3 BS6 now gets side-stand engine cut-off switch, dual horns, blue rims on the Racing Blue trim and a radial rear tyre.

YZF R15 V3 Specifications

Powering the R15 v3 is the same 155cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled 4-valve motor with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA). Power output of 18.6PS and 14.1Nm are 0.7PS and 0.6Nm less than its BS4 counterpart. But it continues to remain the most powerful 150cc motorcycle in India. You find the trademark Deltabox frame on the R15 v3 which had to be tweaked slightly for its third generation. The India-spec motorcycle employs 41mm conventional telescopic fork and an aluminium swingarm with a monoshock unit. Braking duties are taken care of by a 282mm disc with a twin piston caliper on the front wheel while the rear wheel gets a single-piston caliper acting on a 220mm rear disc. While tyre sizes haven’t changed, Yamaha is now offering a radial tyre on the rear wheel. While it is still a weird combination of a cross-ply front and radial rear tyre, we are sure that grip levels are bound to be better with the new offered rubber.

YZF R15 V3 Design

Yamaha hasn’t tinkered around with the styling of the new R15, and it remains the same sharp looking motorcycle that it was since 2018. While the graphics on the grey and Dark Knight colours look similar to the BS4 bike, the Racing Blue gets refreshed graphics with a silver strip bearing the R15 logo plastered across the fairing.

YZF R15 V3 Features

The Yamaha R15 features sleek twin LED headlights and LED tail-light. It gets a full digital dash with a plethora of information on offer like two trip meters, average fuel efficiency indicator, gear position indicator and a bar-type tachometer. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard. The R15 v3 also gets Variable Valve Actuation, which is Yamaha lingo for variable valve timing. Thanks to the presence of this tech, the R15 is able to eke out maximum top end performance without sacrificing on low-end grunt. This tech is usually found on big capacity motorcycles, so kudos to Yamaha for kitting the small R15 with this feature.

Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Competitors

The Yamaha R15 v3 has no direct rivals. The Suzuki Gixxer SF has similar displacement to the R15 but the motor used isn’t as sophisticated or as powerful. The KTM RC 125 matches, or in some accounts even surpasses, the R15 in the kit offered. Still it is freakishly expensive, nearly Rs 10,000 more than the R15, and lacks performance.

Editor's View of Yamaha YZF R15 V3

  • Upside

    Perfect beginner track tool, All-round performance thanks to VVA, Gets option of grippy Metzeler rubber

  • Downside

    Too aggressive riding stance for everyday usage, Overall build quality has gone down, Brakes could do with extra bite

  • Our Verdict

    The R15 v3 remains one potent small-capacity supersport for beginners. In its version 3.0 guise, it has become sharper and more focused, making it great for sport riding or trac enthusiasts. However, the aggressive riding stance could cause discomfort if you intend to use the bike for daily commuting and quality of components have also gone down.

  • Seating position of R15 V3 is slightly more aggressive.It can be ridden comfortably at sporty seating angles but you have to get used to that.It will be difficult for your ride height to manage in city especially in Traffic, Your shoulder Starts paining after a few minutes of ride better go for naked motorcycle if you are in city
  • Go for r15 as mileage is best ,also maintainence is affordable ,specs are awesome .. if you are a beginner and also if you are pro r15 is best you can go for rr310 but depends upon the budget ,also mileage is less and maintenance is high, of course due to the bigger engine..it's your choice at last..
  • Asking about Comfort in a sports bike is like asking for seven seater in a lumborgni.Height is not a matter if you know how to control the bike.You can buy riding shoes customised will definitely increase your comfort.Avoid hectic traffic until you get used to the bike .Thanks.

    Since its launch in 2008, I became a BIG fan of this bike in my childhood. After watching it evolving through time to time, as I got my license, I decided to buy this 150cc maniac.There's no denying fact that this 150cc perfoms just like a 200cc machine. It's screaming power output and aerodynamics, it made me reach over 150kms of top speed, just like a moderate 200cc bikes did.There's no word 'comfort' in it. It's aggressively positioned, which I prefer for the best handling at corners and speed. Console and engine are two precious gems embedded on it.Mileage is bonkers! Once I got 52kmpl, can't believe this!? Pillion seat height is not that high and refinement is still there as it used to have since 2008.I prefer this 150cc machine over 200cc because you get more mileage, which is the strongest issue in the motorcycle market of India, and its refined, its friendly natured..... Until you go past 9k RPM

    I bought my FAVOURITE R15 V3 in May 2019 from a showroom located in Sohna Road, Gurgaon. It is a comfortable ride for sports bike enthusiasts. Unfortunately, it lags comfort and the co-passenger might feel discomfort during long rides. It is not suitable for a common man looking for a family two-wheeler.Nonetheless, it is an apt riding motorcycle for a single rider. One of the key advantages that one can benefit from riding this motorcycle is that it corrects the posture of the rider. So, a ride won't face back issues. Although, long rides are still not suitable for this motorbike. You can ride it comfortably by slightly bending elbows and bending the back like a sports rider.

    Powerful bike in 150 segment, full feature loded in this low price segment, feel like a mini super bike, awesum designed body, great pickup with good balance and no vibration on full speed, aggrasive riding poisture may feel uncomfortable for mid age person but youngstar fall in love, redial tyre for sharp cornering. Assist and slipper clutch gives more smoothness to gear downshift, cherming led headlight good but could have been better. Abs offers you better security for sudden breaking. Worth for money....

    Yamaha r15 v3 has the best performance within the 150cc segment. Though the price is a bit high, its worth it. Performance and handling is great. I am getting 50 kmpl milage on highways. It has a committed riding posture but you"ll get used to it. If you know how to ride a bike like this, you wont get any wrist or back pain. Service and maintenance cost is low compared to other brands. I use her for daily commutes and long tours and with its racing posture, you"ll ride like a breeze with ease.

  • 4.2

    Great bike to ride for fun but mileage I got 38/litre on some speed and normal ride both together and performance is beast..best..long drives..no backpain I am 6 ft and I have a implant in my right hand so only right hand had some pain which is usual.first two days was not comfortable to drive but later had great experience.gear seems have some problem when I try to put it in neutral it goes directly to 1 or 2 might be need of practice because the showroom guy did it correctly.
