Indian youngsters are always crazy about fully faired motorcycles. Yamaha came to know about this in very early phase of Indian Two wheeler market transition before a decade.

The transmission is taken care by 6-speed manual gearbox with quick shifter and slipper clutch. The performance achieved by the engine is also due to its electronic fuel injection system which gives quick response to the throttle and also during revs.
The New YZF R15 v3 has deltabox frame as like its predecessor R15 v2. But the fuel tank is instead made up of fibre this time to reduce the Net weight of the vehicle.
