Thankfully, the premium isn’t massive this time around
Fortunately, the more popular Racing Blue variant has got the least hike. But even with the revised pricing, the Yamaha R15 V3.0 is still value-for-money as it undercuts its arch rival, the smaller-engined and less powerful KTM RC 125, by a massive Rs 11,966. Yamaha is also offering a range of official accessories for the R15, including LED indicators, frame sliders, and mobile charging port, among others.

There has been no mechanical change made to the motorcycle. The R15 is the only bike in its segment to pack Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) technology, which helps in maintaining the balance between low-end grunt and top-end drive. The motor churns out 18.6PS at 10,0000rpm and 14.1Nm at 8500rpm. The bike gets dual-channel ABS as standard.
