One of the most awaited motorcycles for 2015 was the third installment of the Yamaha YZF-R15. However, Yamaha decided to roll out a motorcycle with the first generation model’s design, clubbed with the mechanical upgrades of the version 2.0, and came out with the YZF-R15S. While the Japanese two-wheeler maker has remained tight-lipped about any further details about the YZF-R15 V3.0, motoring portal MotoBlast came out with their own speculative rendering of the 150cc motorcycle.
This speculative rendering of the third iteration of the YZF-R15 has been designed over the recently launched MT-15, the naked roadster version of this 150cc motorcycle with the tuning fork badge. The motorcycle will most likely share its mechanical bits with the MT-15 and thus is expected to come loaded with an upside down fork upfront – an equipment that was not seen on the previous models.
Moreover, the new R15 is also expected to receive an updated fascia which somewhat resembles the YZF-R125 and the YZF-R6. The sharper dual headlight is expected to come along with a faux air intake to enhance the aesthetics. The render also speculates that the wheels would be borrowed from the MT-15. But the biggest change visible is the lowered pillion seat, yet again borrowed from the MT15, on the upcoming model.
