India Yamaha Motor (IYM) launched a new variant of the YZF-R15 V4.0 bike, the YZF-R15S V3. The new variant is relatively cheaper, starting at Rs 1.57 lakhs, than the previously launched, not-so-old YZF-R15 V4.0, targeting the budget onlookers.

The YZF-R15S V3 comes with a unibody seat and would be sold alongside the  YZF-R15 V4 model across all the authorized Yamaha dealerships in India. Having a set start price at Rs 1.57lakhs, the base variant of YZF-R15S V3 is Rs 14k cheaper than the base variant of V4.

Hauled with a 155cc engine, the bike produces a maximum power of 18.6 PS. The fuel-injected motor with variable valve actuation (VVA) comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. While it continues to feature a multi-function LCD Instrument cluster with gear shift indicator, assist & slipper clutch, side stand with engine cut-off switch, dual-channel ABS, and a super-wide radial rear tyre.

The Yamaha Motor India Group Chairman Motofumi Shitara even stated that "the YZF-R15 in its Version 3.0 was a huge success as it proved to be the most exhilarating model in the 150cc supersport segment with advanced technology and features."

He even said, " While the YZF-R15 V4 is being highly appreciated by customers across India, our research has shown that customers are also looking for a more viable option to commute with a pillion without having to compromise on the Racing DNA of the R15."

"The company is always listening to customers and making every possible attempt to meet those demands, and hence, the launch of R15S V3 with a unibody seat was evident." He added clarifying the notion behind the launch of the new variant.

Well, the statement made by the chairman can be asserted by the whopping sales figures of the bike, where Yamaha recorded sales of over 11k units for the R15V4 in September 2021.

Between going to pre-school and setting off for work every morning, my fascination for automobiles never ceased. Nothing excites me more than the sound of tyres screeching and engines revving.
