Yamaha R15 V3 (Indian Edition) Review
Yamaha the famous Japanese motorcycle brand recently launched the new edition of YAmaha R15 V3 in Indian market and it yet to launch in Bangladesh. This motorcycle already create a craze among motorcycle lovers. Though its a 155cc motorcycle but it looks like a higher segments motorcycle. R15 V3 is also one of the best selling motorcycle series from the global brand Yamaha.
Though this motorcycle got some new design and features but the engine power is slightly lower than previous/present version. But this new edition got fuel injection system that previous version didn’t have. The standard double channel ABS system is also added in its feature to improve its braking system. Its new fresh look will attracted by anyone. So lets take a look at this motorcycle.
Design & looks: Yamaha R15 V3’s design concept is taken from its elder sibling Yamaha R1. The front end design and the rear view looks aerodynamic and sharp. Its LED headlamp unit and wind breaker looks aggressive. Its aerodynamic fairing looks solid and perfectly adjusted with body. The muscular and sculpted fuel tank just looks like Yamaha R1. Clip-on handle bar and up-raised split seat make it more sporty. But there are some changes in design between Indian version and Indonesia version. The Indian version got rear fender reflector, mudguard, saree guard and different color scheme than Indonesia version. But the build in quality and paint quality is lower than Indonesia version.
Engine performance: There is no change in engine power and performance between Indian and Indonesian version. This version got same Liquid-cooled, 1-cylinder, 4-stroke, SOHC, 4-valve, 154.9 cc displacement engine which can burn out 19.04 bhp maximum power and 14.7 Nm torque at 8500 rpm. There is also no changes in its acceleration rate and top speed. It can reach the top speed of 155 km/h. Constant mesh, 6-speed gearbox equipped with the engine for better transmission. Yamaha used Slipper and Assist clutch rather than wet multi-plate in Indian version. It will help to get easy gear shifting and smooth clutch adjustment.
Dimensions & seating position: There are no major changes in its dimension. But this Indian version got higher seating position and ground clearance than Indonesia version. 170 mm ground clearance and 815 mm seat high will be helpful to the rider. Its handle bar is also up-raised and more ergonomic than Indo version. The seats are split and the pillion seat remain small and uncomfortable for pillion. Overall height of this bike is 1135 mm, width 725 mm and the length is 1990 mm. Yamaha used MRF tyres rather than IRC into this Indian version. MRF/NYLOGRIP ZAPPER-FX1 100/80-17M/C in front and MRF/NYLOGRIP ZAPPER-S 140/70-17M/C section tubeless tyres are used in rear wheel.
Suspension & Brakes: Yamaha used telescopic fork suspension into this bike. The Indonesian version was equipped with Up Side Down telescopic suspension. But the rear suspension remain same which is Swingarm (link suspension). Delta box type chassis installed and it will provide stability and strength. Indian version got double channel ABS system which Indonesian version didn’t have. 282 mm Hydraulic Single Disc guarded the front wheel and 220 mm Hydraulic Single Disc is for rear wheel.
Mileage: This version is only available in fuel injection fuel supply. So it would definitely provide better mileage than carburetor system. It will give 45 km/L average mileage. It will also provide 50 km/l in highway and 40 km/l in cities. That is more than enough for a sports bike.
Instrument Panel & Features: The instrumental console remain same like Indonesian version. Speedometer, trip meter, odometer, tachometer are fully digital. Other features like clock, fuel gauge, ABS light are also available in instrumental console.
Colors & Price: This Indian version costs 485,000 BDT in Bangladesh. It is little bit cheaper than Indonesian version. Its available with three color shades which are Dark Night, Racing Blue and Thunder Grey.
Overview: Suzuki makes so many changes in this new version of Gixxer SF. It looks sharp, sporty and more aggressive than previous version. The headlamp unit, rear end, fuel tank and seating position got improved and looks amazing. It looks more premium than previous one. Though the engine power remain same. For this customization its launching price might be increased. But it won’t be a problem for its premium quality. Its build in quality and paint scheme also looks solid.
