Motofumi Shitara, chairman, Yamaha Motor India Group, said, “While the YZF-R15 V4 is being highly appreciated by customers across India, our research has shown that customers are also looking for a more viable option to commute with a pillion, without having to compromise on the Racing DNA of the R15. At Yamaha we always listen to our customers’ demands and make every possible attempt to meet them. Hence, the R15S V3 with a Unibody Seat.”

“After the introduction of the brand campaign ‘The Call of the Blue’ in 2018, the R15 model range witnessed a staggering growth in sales. Considering the period between January 2018 and October 2021, we have garnered a total sale of 276, 445 units, which is a remarkable accomplishment,” he said.

‘The Call of the Blue’ campaign was launched to testify the company’s commitment to offering two wheelers that add up to the global spirit of Yamaha Racing and the brand’s global image of ‘Excitement, Stylish and Sporty’, Shitara added.
