MAW Enterprises, the authorized distributor of Yamaha motorcycles in Nepal, has launched the all-new Yamaha R15 v3 BS6.

It is Yamaha’s latest sports bike to feature the highly anticipated “BS6” badging.

Like the Yamaha FZS v3 BS6 and Yamaha MT 15 BS6, there aren’t too many visual changes. Rather, the engine has been further refined to meet the BS6 emission norms.

We will talk about those changes in a bit.

Talking about the pricing, Yamaha R15 v3 BS6 price in Nepal is Rs. 5.09 Lakhs. There is a price increase when compared to the previous R15 v3 BS4 (priced at Rs. 4.96 Lakhs).
