Yamaha R15 Review
Yamaha R15 specification
The Yamaha R-15 version 1.0 derives life out of a 149.8cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder 4-stroke engine paired with an intelligent 6-speed transmission generating a maximum power of 16.8Bhp @ 8500 rpm and 15 Nm of torque, reaching ravishing top speeds of 145Kph.

Yamaha R15 design
The Yamaha R15 motorcycle is all about classic sporty looks and performance-oriented design. The sports bike has been carved out of sheer excellence and signature Yamaha engineering expertise. The right combination of lower weight and effective ground clearance – 131 kg and 160 mm – along with a standard 1290 mm wheelbase blesses the motorbike with adequate center-of-gravity to keep its feet firmly placed on the ground. Handling is maintained through the wide front and rear radial tires, while a distinct split seat for the rear passenger adds to the persona of the R15. The chain adjustment capabilities of the R15 are similar to those used in Super Sports bikes while flashy LED tail-lights have been incorporated – adapted from the YZF-R6 – along with an improved middle-cowl design enhancing aerodynamics. Designer double mudguards and an upward thrust exhaust system design further compliment the R15’s attractiveness.

The latest 5-spoke type wheels have been paired with large 220 mm rear disc brakes to maintain balance at all times.
