Yamaha R15 V3 launched at the Auto Expo 2018 in India.

Yamaha R15 V3 has been unveiled at the Auto Expo 2018, the R15 V3 is the third generation model of the R15 which is considered to be one of the best 150 cc upcoming bikes in India. Yamaha launched the R15 V3 in Indonesia at the beginning of 2017 and made Indian riders excited for the V3 to be launched in India. At the Auto Expo 2018, Yamaha introduced the R15 V3 which we think is the most exciting 150cc machine available in India right now.

Yamaha R15 V3 Price in India. 

The bike is priced at 1,25,000 INR (ex-showroom Mumbai) which makes the package more appealing. The only thing we wish the Yamaha R15 V3 had was an ABS to seal the deal. The new updated version of the bike is a fantastic road bike which can double up as a track-tool for your occasional track days.
There are a very few 150cc bikes which can offer the same performance as the R1 but some of its competitors in the market will be Pulsar 160 NS, Pulsar 200 NS, Apache RTR 180 and Apache 200 4V.
