Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Highlights

Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Price: Yamaha YZF R15 V3 prices start at Rs. 1.41 lakh (Ex-Showroom). Yamaha YZF R15 V3 is available in 2 variants and 4 colours.
YZF R15 V3 Engine and Specifications: The previous-gen R15 lacked bottom end performance and was slow to get off the line. In contrast, R15 v3.0 gets a new and slightly larger 155cc liquid-cooled four-valve motor with more performance in the low range. While it still remains a high-revving engine, it comes with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) that changes valve lift post 7400rpm for better top-end grunt. This allows engineers to run two valve timings: one for better low-speed grunt and one for better top-end. It runs a larger sprocket which further boosts in-gear acceleration times. In our tests, the R15 clocked roll-on times at par with other 200cc motorcycles we have tested. City fuel efficiency is better than most of the 160 and even 150cc bikes we have tested. Outright acceleration is on par with 250cc bikes and better than the 200cc bikes. On the highway, at speeds of around 85-90kmph, the R15 v3.0 returned a fuel economy at par with the 160cc bikes and better than other 200cc bikes. Apart from the slight vibrations felt through the handlebars at around 5000rpm and again at around 8000rpm, refinement is pretty good. The softer front suspension soaks up bad road surfaces well while the rear suspension seems to be a bit too reactive and bouncy over bumps and potholes. The R15 v3.0 tackles potholes well, though the rear transmits some of the shocks to the rider. A sharper rake and shorter trail make the front end sharper than before. Turn-ins are quick and effortless and overall stability through smooth corners is excellent. The optional rear Metzeler Sportec M7 radial tyre offers fantastic grip in all conditions and is worth the premium. A radial tyre for the front would be a fantastic addition.

YZF R15 V3 Design and Features

The all-new Yamaha R15 V3.0 is the perfect blend of practicality and outright performance compared to the first and second-gen R15’s. It’s race-orientation does hamper ergonomics to an extent which might not suit everyone's riding taste. Despite the 815mm tall seat, we did not have an issue placing both feet on the ground. Other than the clip-ons, which now feel lower, the low-set footpegs are comfortable and the rest of the bike too didn't give us any reason to complain. The new full-digital instrument cluster is large and easy to read on the go. The full-LED headlamps disappoint with their short throw and spread.

Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Competitors

Suzuki Gixxer SF Fi ABS: The Suzuki Gixxer SF Fi is certainly a value for money motorcycle. It has a good balance of attractive design and amazing engine refinement, which offers good performance while being comparatively frugal in terms of fuel consumption. And now, with the addition of ABS for a premium of Rs 6,000 over the standard bike, the Gixxer SF Fi certainly makes a strong case for itself.

Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 ABS: The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 certainly scores a few brownie points when it comes to engine refinement and performance. It is also well loaded with nifty features such as projector headlamps with LED DRLs, a backlit semi-digital instrument console and ABS. All in all, those looking for an affordable, fully-faired bike with sporty characteristics, the RS200 is certainly an attractive buy.


We rode the new R15 v3.0 on both the racetrack and in the real world. While the R15 has grown larger and more powerful, it needs a certain level of expertise to tame. The more committed ergonomics make for an uncomfortable ride in the city. If you are looking for a dynamically competent bike that you’d like to hone your riding skills on and don't mind the committed riding position, the Yamaha R15 v 3.0 is the one to go for. It's a bike we'd love to have in our garage but its ergonomics limit its practicality. That's the reason it can not be our primary everyday bike.

Yamaha had recently increased the price of the R15 V3 by Rs 600. It now retails at Rs 1,40,880 (ex-showroom Delhi). However, we do expect the price to be hiked once again by around 10-15 per cent for the BS6-compliant model. Official documents of the BS6-compliant model showcasing a drop in power were leaked online recently. The BS6 bike will produce 18.63PS compared to the current model’s 19.3PS. Expect the BS6-compliant model to be launched by the end of this year.

    1. Have purchased dark knight edition in August 2019.2. Mileage part is awesome. Since i ride in Mumbai city I get a mileage of 40-45.3. First service done. Make sure you do not got full tank petrol. It may affect mileage.4. Who ever is having back or neck ache, check out correct riding posture for sport bike. Hold the tank with your laps and keep the pressure away from shoulder and palm to avoid pain.5. I have started new insta channel. Please support:Insta id: r15_Mumbai. During rainy season you would need to get an additional tyre hugger to avoid getting mud all over your legs or pillion

    Another winner in the series definitely better than v2 in which Yamaha compromised on performance for looks.This time v3 is a racing machine in a true sense by styling ergonomics sporty riding position race kits. built quality and a descent mileage.Safety measures like dual channel abs is givenminor changes recently to make it bs6 complaint. Handling cornering ability made it the class first and made rivals a hard time watching its sales figures Thanks.

    Yamaha R15 was launched in India on 12th June 2008 and I purchased it on 30th June 2008, Its the best byke money can buy, I am almost about to reach 1 lac kms, never had a problem, gives 45kmpl mileage, in 2008 it used to turn heads and even today I have kept it like that, I just love it

    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....

  • 4.2

    Overall I love the bike, i happy with it but having such a complicated parts are difficult to manage, If u accidentally break a part or a piece of plastic its difficult to search but if you take care of this bike then it"s most advance and amazing bike in 150 cc variant
