Other than the new colours, there may not be many changes on the R15S. It is expected that the updated R15S can make its debut alongside its sibling MT-15’s debut which is rumoured to get its Version 2.0 on 11th of April

The R15S is essentially the R15 V3 which was re-introduced to keep the entry in the R15 family low. The R15 v4 debuted at a big price hike. This suggests that buyers are paying ample heed to the R15S and that is why the company is considering expanding its colour palette.
