Yamaha’s R15 has been leading the charge for beginner-friendly performance motorcycles for over a decade. However, KTM hopes to make some impressions in the same segment with the baby 125 Duke. Both motorcycles are stylish, funky and youthful. They retain a peppy vibe and have equally powerful motors to go along with them. There is no shortage of high-end features as well here. Ultimately we settle which one of the two would make the most sense for youngsters.

Racetrack-worthy chassis and hi-tech engine packaged into a racy-looking motorcycle that’s dished out at a price just within reach of college goers -- this has been the Yamaha R15’s golden formula. The third generation R15 is now here and it is very familiar in many ways, but it is also promising to move the goalposts forward too in many ways. Which goalposts? And by how much? We listed our expectations and then hopped aboard the R15 V3.0 at the Madras Motor Race Track in Chennai to see if they turn out to be True or False.
Yamaha has finally launched the new R15 Version 3.0 in India to the delight of two-wheeler enthusiasts. The 2018 Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 has been priced at Rs 1.25 lakh, which makes it about Rs 8,000 more expensive than its predecessor. Yamaha has been testing the new R15 in India for the past few months and there have been many spy shots of the motorcycle on the internet too. There is one big difference between the India-spec R15 Version 3.0 and the international model and that is the missing USD forks, done to keep costs under check. How much have the telescopic forks altered the handling dynamics of the new motorcycle is something that we can only tell once we get our hands on the bike for a road test. It will compete against the Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 and the KTM RC 200 in our two-wheeler market.
