Surprise surprise! Yamaha has started testing its upcoming YZF-R15 V4 in India. The test mules of the said model have been snapped testing very recently for the very first time somewhere near Delhi by a YouTuber – Abhinav Bhatt. The video was shot by a moving vehicle and add to that the fact that the test mules wore heavy camouflage, and hence, the exact design details are not visible. However, it is the front section of the motorcycle that will witness the majority of changes. Unlike the present-day model that gets sleek-looking twin LED headlamps, the upcoming 2022 Yamaha YZF-R15 V4 will get a vertically stacked single-piece LED projector unit just like the R7.
Watch the upcoming Yamaha YZF-R15 V4 in action:
Now if that will look cool or not, that is more of a subject of debate but one thing is clear that the bike will get some heavy visual updates when it comes to the front fascia. The rear end though looks quite the same as the existing model. Moreover, if you look closely, the test mules sport upside-down forks upfront and this is a good thing as the present-day India-spec model employs conventional telescopic forks.
Yamaha YZF-15 V3 is currently on sale in India for a starting price of Rs 1,54,600 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Expect the new model to demand a slight premium and hence, could be priced at close to Rs 1.60 lakh (ex-showroom). Official India launch is expected to take place towards the end of this year.
