Yamaha R15 V3 BS6 got another price hike in Nepal. After its price revision back in January, the bike is now expensive by another Rs. 10,000.
Talking of the latest cost, Yamaha R15 V3 BS6 price in Nepal is set at Rs. 5,24,900. With this pricing, it also became the most premium 155cc bike in the Nepalese market.
R15 V3 is also one of the most popular fairing motorcycles among Nepalese youngsters. Interstingly, the BS6 model now comes with an updated engine, new interesting features and colours.
With that said, let's look closely at an updated Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 along with its features, specs, and availability.
Yamaha R15 V3 BS6 Overview
Yamaha R15 V3 is a next-generation 155cc Supersport motorcycle inheriting "Racing R-DNA”. Right from the first generation, this bike has set its own benchmark in every aspect compared to other motorcycles in the segment.
Yamaha hasn't interfered with the look of the new R15. It has sharp and edgy bodywork, like most Supersports bikes.
The front end has a more aggressive-looking headlight component, and the general body design is more muscular as well. Overall, the motorcycle appears proportional, and this is without a doubt the best-looking R15 to date.
While the styling on the Thunder Grey is comparable to the BS4 variant, the Racing Blue colour variant receives graphics updated, a silver strip, standard blue coloured wheels, and the R15 emblem plastered on the fairing. Additionally, it will be now available in new Metallic Red colour.
