Yamaha has always been in providing the consumers with utmost power and design since the begining of its motorcycle history. The R series is none to be forgotten. The new Yamaha R15 V3.0 launched at this years auto expo 2018 was none less than an awe to the eye. Be it its ferocious design elements that seems like are carried forward from the elder sibling R1 or the performance the 150 cc motorbike delivers.

2018 Yamaha R15 V3.0 Ride & Handling
This unit is tuned to deliver power figures of 19.3 Ps of Power @ 10000 rpm and a peak torque of 15Nm @8500 rpm which now comes with the all new 6-speed gearbox. The addition of slipper clutch will definitely make the motorbike sell and also would provide the end user to downshift gears while deceleration without any hassles.
This latest motorcycle now gets all the bells and whistles you can expect with LED headlights with hazard lamps and a slipper clutch. You are also welcomed by MRF zapper tyres for better road grip for cornering at the ghat sections.
Braking duty in the Yamaha R15 V3.0 is done by a 267 mm front disc brake and a 220 mm rear disc brake. For the suspension duty, this bike gets telescopic front fork and linked type monocross rear suspension. Which seems like is carried forward from the previous generation.
The only downside i can think about is the tiny fuel tank with a fuel capacity of 11 litres which seems less for touring purposes, but mates would you prefer this motorcycle for touring purposes or just cruising in the city traffic.
