Good News For Yamaha Bikes Lovers: Yamaha R15 V3 booking open
Yamaha R15 V3: Yamaha has established the brand new generation R15 V3 in several states, except India. The first components of the new R15 V3 have begun arriving at dealerships. Bookings also have opened. Few of our subscribers have reserved one and shared photographs of the progress booking receipts. The launching will happen in Feb 2018.
This is good news for people who have been awaiting the R15 V3. However, there’s sad news too. India-spec variant of the R15 V3 won’t be a full-fledged R15 V3 that’s available in global markets, but a less expensive version, devoid of all of the gadgets and hardware updates.
In the spy pictures, it’s apparent that the India-spec R15 V3 becomes routine front forks rather than the upside down (USD) forks that are available with international-spec R15 V3. In Addition, It overlooks the ABS. Then there’s exactly the exact same V2 like front fender, rather than the wider and sportier fender of the V3. Tyres are out of MRF, rather than those IRC tyres which we’ve observed on the global spec V3. Footpegs are like V2, rather than the aluminum assembly. The slipper clutch isn’t predicted to be included.
Why is Yamaha India working towards launch a greatly downgraded R15 V3 rather than the real thing? Well, the solution is straightforward — To maintain the launch cost in check. Global spec R15 V3 prices about Rs 1.7 lakh. If the completely loaded Yamaha R15 is found in India, then there’ll be hardly any takers. Rather, the business intends to replace the present V2 together with the V3 and maintain the prices almost same.
The motor is expected to be identical. This motor generates segment top 19.31 PS peak electricity at 10,000 rpm and 14.7 Nm torque at 8,500 rpm mated into some 6-speed gearbox.
LED headlamps, slipper clutch and competitive fairing can also be portion of the attributes to be mentioned on the Yamaha R15 v3.0. Saddle height and chair position also have been raised to provide far better riders and pillion rider amenities.
