Meanwhile, Yamaha India has discontinued the YZF-R15 V1 and the Fazer 150 bikes. Both bikes were not updated with ABS ahead of the April 1 deadline and cannot be sold without the safety feature. With the R15 V3.0 doing well in terms of sales, it is likely that the bike maker found it a more attractive proposition to discontinue the R15 V1 instead of updating it with the safety feature. The Yamaha Fazer 150 hadn't received any updates this year when the comprehensively revised FZ was introduced in January 2019. It's an unclear at the moment if the semi-faired offering will make a comeback.
