Yamaha India will soon launch a facelifted version 3.0 of its popular YZF-R15 motorcycle.
The YZF-R15 has been the bike that changed the game for Yamaha and it reflected soon after its launch in 2008.
If the R15 got it right, the v2.0 launched in 2011 took it a step further, and now the Japanese bike-maker is all set to bring in a refreshed version.
While the cosmetic changes on the new YZF-R15 v3.0 won’t quite be substantial, it’s the heart that will see a revision. The upcoming R15 will not only get a new ECU to make the bike feel more refined. In fact, in its new avatar, the R15 is also expected to receive a hike in its power output.
The YZF-R15 v2.0 currently makes 17PS and 15Nm. While details of the new YZF-R15 v3.0 are still sketchy, with the FZ-S v2.0, Fazer v2.0 as well as the SZ-R already launched, Yamaha is sure to shift its focus on its flagship model.
