Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Design And Style

The Yamaha R15 V3 is a premium fully faired motorcycle in the 150cc segment. The design of the new R15 V3 is inspired by its elder litre-class sibling, the R1. The bike looks sharp and aggressive with its track-focused design. The bike gets a new front with split LED headlamps and newly designed fairing.

The tail section of the bike gets a new sleek LED tail light with the tapered rear cowl. The motorcycle also gets a short rear tyre hugger which looks sporty and sleek at the same time. Overall, the design of the R15 V3 is edgy and sportier than ever in its third-gen avatar.
