An all-new rendering showcases to us the direction Yamaha could take with its YZF-R15 Version 3.0 model. Only the front has been showcased, while the rear-end and side profile has not been revealed. Indonesia is most likely to receive the updated YZF-R15, ahead of the Indian market.
Design cues will be borrowed from Yamaha's superbike models. The YZF-R1 and YZF-R3 motorcycles will be a source of inspiration for the Version 3.0 of the YZF-R15. Majority of design changes will be provided to the front fascia, for an aggressive persona.
No major mechanical changes will be carried out on the YZF-R15's engine. Yamaha engineers could try and extract little more power from its engine for improved performance. An all-new exhaust system could also be adopted for improved fuel efficiency.
So far, Yamaha India has been offering colour updates to its YZF-R15 Version 2.0 model. It is now time that an all-new YZF-R15 Version 3.0 is introduced. At this moment, it is unclear if Yamaha will or will not introduce the YZF-R15 Version 3.0 motorcycle in India.
Previously, Yamaha Motors India relaunched its single seat YZF-R15 model as the YZF-R15 S. This model has surprisingly drawn loads of attention. A waiting period of a month is normal for the Yamaha YZF-R15 S in most markets pan India.
