We recently test-rode the new 2018 Yamaha R15 V3.0 on the Madras Motor Race Track (MMRT) in Chennai and will soon come up with a detailed expert review of the motorcycle. Meanwhile, let’s have a look at the accessories that are being offered on this baby. These accessories can be ordered at the authorized showroom and you can get them installed by Yamaha-trained mechanics.
Seat Cover – Rs 430
This is an optional seat cover that safeguards the seat from minor damage. It is made up of the same material as the one used on the original seat and hence, doesn’t spoil the looks of this motorcycle. You can have it for just Rs 430.
Tank Pad – Rs 224
It’s common for your belt buckle to rub against the tank and spoil its paint finish. Hence, getting a tank pad gets quite important. Yamaha is offering one for just Rs 225. This tank pad conforms to the company’s Global Standard Quality and complements the sporty looks of the V3.0. This one’s a ‘must have’.
Frame Sliders – INR 2,450
These frame sliders are well-priced and can be easily installed without making any holes in the fairing. Installing these can ensure your fairing’s safety in case of light crashes. Another important accessory, this one.
Skid Plate – INR 500
Here’s another well-priced accessory that protects the motorcycle’s muffler against damage from minor contact with speed breakers.
Metzeler Rear Tyre – INR 9,998
While the R15 is an already accomplished tool on a race track, we feel that you should swap the stock MRF rubber for the ultra-grippy Metzeler. Yamaha is selling a Metzeler rear tire for Rs 9,998. Having sticky tires can make a lot of difference on a racetrack, where every small fraction of a second count.
Daytona Muffler – INR 16,700
You can also install a performance-tuned muffler from Daytona. This is meant for racetrack-usage only, which means you can’t use this on public roads.
