Default Re: The 2017 Yamaha R15 V3. EDIT: Unveiled in Indonesia

I had a brief chat with one of the Marketing Manager (Kerala) during the recent Yamaha Bash in Bangalore and they have received the V3 version (just one bike from Indonesia). He had test ridden the bike in some restricted track and he said the bike power slides through the gears. He also confirmed that the Indian version will have some significant change in height due to road conditions, might expect some changes in the FI and finally, Indian version will go through some detune : Frustrati

I fail to understand why do they have to detune the bike? The fuel quality isn't that bad in India and as far as weather and other factors are concerned, they are probably the same as in Indonesia.

This is

Yes, agreed with you. When we have mental KTM then why not blistering R15. I just remember something he was discussing FI specifically. I might be wrong but the Indonesian version has about 21 tiny injectors and Indian version might have only 16 . Also, he mentioned something about the electronic unit (can't recall what he called it) which will not be available for the Indian version.
