New Delhi: Yamaha had launched the third generation of the YZF R15 V3 at the 2018 Auto Expo at a price tag of Rs 1.25 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Six months after the launch of the Yamaha YZF R15 V3, the company has marginally hiked the price of the bike by Rs 2,000.
The bike is now priced at Rs 1.27 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) with the company not citing any reasons for the price rise. Meanwhile, Yamaha is expected to launch the MotoGP version of the R15 V3 in the next month or so.
The R15 was launched a decade ago in 2007-08 and since then it has become a cult bike offering great performance on a budget. The third generation R15 is even better, drawing its design clues from the R1, its eldest sibling.
The bike is powered by a 155 cc single-cylinder engine which churns out 19.3 bhp and 15 Nm of peak torque. Power is transferred to the rear wheel via a new 6-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch.
