Yamaha Motors Indonesia has taken the wraps off of its new 2017 Yamaha R15 V3.0, which will be the most powerful offering in the segment. This motorcycle will make its way to the Indian market in the coming months!
As we reported earlier, the 2017 R15 Version 3.0 features first-in-the-segment full LED headlamps, hazard lamp, faux air intake, new exhaust, new fairing, USD front forks, a fully digital instrument cluster, a dual tone colour scheme, and of course, the evergreen Delta Box frame. Sadly, there is no ABS even as an option. But gets a slipper and assist clutch.
The new powertrain is a bigger 155cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke VVA engine mated to a 6-speed transmission. This unit churns-out 20 PS of maximum power at 10,000 rpm and 14.7 Nm of peak torque at 8,500 rpm. Interestingly, the 2017 R15 Version 3.0 also receives a slipper to minimise the effects of engine braking under aggressive downshifts.
Measuring 1,990 mm in length, 725 mm in width, 1,135 mm in height and it has a wheelbase of 1,325 mm. A total of 3 colours are on offer – Racing Blue, Matte Black and Matte Red.
