Yamaha has unveiled the all-new 2018 YZF-R15 V3.0 with substantial updates and more power.The R15 V3.0 features R1-inspired fairing and gets twin-LED headlights, with the tail-light being an LED unit too. There’s a new Deltabox frame which Yamaha says gives the R15 its signature handling characteristics – natural and precise.

This fully-faired bike is shod with 100/80 17 (front) and 140/70 17 (rear) tubeless tyres and a 282mm disc brakes with twin-piston callipers. The rear gets discs as well but of a slightly lower diameter. Also, strangely, ABS has not been offered on this model yet.

The R15 V3.0 is powered by a 155cc, SOHC, four-valve, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected motor which produces 19.3hp at 10,000rpm. Mated to the engine is a six-speed transmission that also features an assist and slip clutch, which makes the clutch feel lighter and keeps the bike more stable during hard downshifts. Other highlights include a fully-digital multi-function instrument cluster with a gear-shift light and a connector for USB charging.

The R15 V3 is priced at ₹1.25 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), which is slightly more expensive than the outgoing model.
