    Default Yamaha R15 V3.0 ABS launched: Dual Channel ABS for the baby R

    Yamaha has begun 2019 with the introduction of YZF-R15 V3.0 ABS (dual channel) in India today. Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 3.0 was launched at the Auto Expo 2018 and has gained enormous admiration from Yamaha loyalists as its first year sales doubled up the targeted production.

    With the launch of the new dual channel Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) enabled YZF-R15 Version 3.0 is the first 150cc class model that has dual channel ABS. The motorcycle will hit the Indian roads with an all new Darknight colour along with Thunder Grey and Racing Blue while retaining all of its original features like VVA technology and A&S Clutch along with a dual channel ABS. The dual channel ‘Anti-lock Braking System’ (ABS) technology comes with adjustable fluid pressure which will further be reliable to ensure immediate braking on slippery roads. It is armed with a powerful 155 cc engine with high compression ratio resulting in maximum 19.3 PS power at 10,000 RPM delivering a torque of 14.7 N.M at 8500 RPM.

    The Yamaha R15 V3.0 ABS is priced at INR 1.39 Lakhs for the existing colours whereas the Darknight colour variant is priced at 1.41 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom, Delhi).

    Mr. Motofumi Shitara, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India group of companies said, “The Call of the Blue brand campaign introduced in 2018 was the beginning of a new outlook that has effectively hit the right note – Yamaha’s true DNA of style, sporty and excitement. The New Year 2019 will also be exciting in Yamaha and it is ready with the heart revving products. A brand known for leading generations of stylish ride through improved technologies, Yamaha has now engineered to implement a dual channel ABS to the YZF-R15 Version 3.0. The initiative to offer dual channel ABS in YZF-R15 Version 3.0 has endowed Yamaha as the trendsetter in the 150 cc class, by introducing it for the first time in the particular segment. Yamaha will continue to optimize the thrill of riding with its style and excitement.”

    Its a shame really, to support a manufacturer that said it will implement ABS only when it becomes mandatory. That should tell you something about Yamaha's Absurdity towards Indian Customers.

    Also no USD Forks because "Cost Cutting". smh

    This has been common thought among all auto enthusiasts, when companies thought features like ABS, rear disc brakes, AHO and DC headlights are all luxury instead of treating them as must have safety features.

    I honestly Thank the people who is making these decisions in the Indian Government, who have understood the need and made it a mandate, without him/her these so called big Japanese brands would have taken us a fool and might have continued until the year 2030 or even 2050 without giving us the bare minimum safety features in bikes.

    Same with the cars where they had to force things on most manufactures which they never gave on their own (atleast not in all variants) and made mandatory basic safety tech like Airbags, ABS, publishing NCAP ratings to expose poor built cars, parking sensors, seat belt and speed reminder must have!

    Treating India as sub standard country and making it a dump yard for there left over products which din't sell anywhere else yet charging hefty premium
    for it.

    P.S. USD forks? I am going to wait for it to be mandated aswell, until then I don't see USD coming.
