Unni Mukundan is a big name down South India for the various superhit movies he has starred in during his career. The Malayalam film star is currently in news for a noble gesture which made his fans shout all praises for him. The actor recently shared pictures of himself with his trainer on social media which escalated quickly among his fans. The reason behind it was a red and black Yamaha R15 V3 which Unni Mukundan presented as a gift to his trainer Johnson, who worked extensively with him during the shooting of the actor’s movie Mamangam. The video here shows Unni taking the delivery of the bike from the showroom and riding it all the way to his trainer, who is pretty surprised upon knowing the bike is a gift.
As seen in the video, the actor himself rode the bike all along to his trainer from the dealership which shows that he really wanted to surprise his trainer. And the trainer is indeed surprised. He immediately got up and gave a big hug to Unni, both of them having big smiles on their faces. Unni later took to Facebook and Instagram to share the happy memories of the moment. He wrote:
“I’m so happy that You loved the bike !! I was not sure about it, ! But this is nothing compared to the time and energy you have spent to make sure I look the part for @mamangam_movie ! You trained me like you would train your younger brother !!! Happy Onam in advance and that’s You Ride @johnson.ap.7 Johnson etta !!! I really hope u love riding this beast !!

I’m so happy that You loved the bike !! I was not sure about it, ! But this is nothing compared to the time and energy…
Well, that surely would have made the day for Unni’s trainer, especially since the Yamaha R15 V3 is one of the best performance-oriented motorcycles one can buy under Rs. 2 lakh price mark. Speaking of which, the bike is powered by a 155 cc engine that puts out 19 Bhp of power along with 15 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox and gets a slipper clutch as well. It comes equipped with a dual-channel ABS, VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) and weighs 139 kg. To let you know, this engine is one of the most powerful 150 cc stock engines in any production bike across the world.
Its low weight of just 139 kg further helps it to deliver good performance along with being relatively fuel-efficient as well. The inclusion of VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) technology is one of the factors why the R15 V3.0 has such a good top-end performance along with a more than decent mileage figure. Yamaha now also offers the naked version of the R15 in India, which goes by the name of MT-15.
