Yamaha updates YZF-R15 V3.0 with ABS, to retail at Rs 139,000

Yamaha has launched the ABS-equipped R15 V3.0 at Rs 139,000. The company has also made available a new Darknight colour scheme at Rs 141,000 for the entry-level supersport (prices, ex-showroom Delhi). The dual-channel ABS comes at a premium of Rs 12,000. Yamaha has not said anything about the MotoGP edition that was launched in August 2018.

The new Darknight colour scheme is essentially a matte-black finish that Yamaha has offered on its other two-wheelers like the FZ, Saluto RX and Ray ZR. Other than this, the R15 V3.0 remains identical to the non-ABS equipped version, which we expect to see getting discontinued before the deadline of April 1, 2019. It is powered by a 155cc, SOHC, four-valve, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected motor that produces 19.3hp at 10,000rpm and 15Nm of torque at 8,500rpm. The motor is paired to a 6-speed transmission that also features an assist and slip clutch.

Among other features are a fully-digital multi-function instrument cluster with a gear-shift light and an LED headlight and tail-light.

Yamaha has also announced a new product launch on January 21, 2019.
