At a place, It’s pretty surprising while on the other half it's amazing for those who are waiting for Yamaha YZF-R15 V3 since a long time. Yes!!!

Though there will be a host of changes in the India-bound version as the bike spotted here in Yamaha Racing Blue shade was equipped with the conventional telescopic front forks instead of USD forks. Moreover, the bike could get a different front fender, MRF tyres and iron mould foot pegs.
