India Yamaha Motor (IYM) Pvt.
Ltd. launched its much-awaited super sports bike YZF-R15 (Version 3.0) during
the inaugural day of Auto Expo 2018. The new super sports model offers a 155
cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, 4-valve, fuel-injected engine that uses
innovative technologies like Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) and Assist &
Slipper (A&S) Clutch. The bike is priced at Rs 1,25,000 ex showroom Delhi.
The new YZF-R15 (Version 3.0) is
armed with a 155 cc engine with high compression ratio resulting in maximum
19.3 PS power at 10,000 RPM delivering a torque of 15 N.M at 8500 RPM.
Yamaha introduces the
revolutionary VVA system in India with this version which delivers top-end
power without sacrificing torquey character in the low to mid-range rpm. This
results in linear acceleration and high performance character along with
sharper throttle response. Mounted on a Delta box frame, this technology
promises a more powerful, feature rich and sportier model, along with the shift
light and VVA indicator which makes the power band simple to manage. The Assist
& Slipper (A&S) Clutch has been adopted to reduce the weight of the
clutch pull and provide a low stress shifting during deceleration. The A&S
Clutch provides smooth and enjoyable downshifts during the ride.
With its weight (wet) of 139
kg and a 170 mm ground clearance, the new YZF-R15 (Version 3.0) gets a stylish
look from its fully digital instrument console and LED head and tail light.
Yamaha’s high performance handling is all about creating a machine that
responds naturally to the riders’ control perceptions. The feeling of
rider-machine unity is achieved through the upgraded riding position (more
aggressive) and wider size rear tire (same size as offered in YZF-R3). In order
to further encourage the racing enthusiasts, Yamaha will also market “Racing
kit” consisting of Metzeler tyre along with Daytona muffler and Frame Slider
with the new version. This kit can be additionally purchased from authorized
dealers of Yamaha.
The bike was launched in the
presence of Motofumi Shitara, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India Group of companies
and Roy Kurian, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Yamaha Motor
