The Yamaha YZF-R15 was first introduced in 2008 followed by a generation change in 2011. Power on the prowess is drawn by a new 155 cc, liquid-cooled engine which makes top power of 19 bhp at 10,000 rpm against peak torque of 15 Nm at 8500 rpm. This new engine gets a higher compression ratio and is equipped with lightweight forged aluminium piston as well as a VVA (variable valve actuation). Transmission duties on the bike are carried out by the 6-speed unit. It additionally comes with an assist and a slipper clutch.

Braking set-up comprises a 282 mm disc brake with two piston caliper at front and a 220 mm disc unit at the back. Unlike the international version, the Indiaspec model comes bereft of the ABS (anti-lock-braking system). Yamaha is all set to launch the MotoGP edition of the new 2018 Yamaha R15 V3. While the new edition will retain the design from the regular model, expect it to get a new Blue shade, an ENESOS badge on belly pan and the Moviestar moniker on the front and sides.
