    The Yamaha Y15ZR belongs to the category of under-bone bike, in which products are usually given functionality a higher priority over form. The Yamaha Y15ZR, however, emerges out as an Read More

    I would call the Yamaha Y15ZR a moped because of its design. But when you ride it, you will realise it is not exactly a moped but far more powerful Read More

Yamaha Y15ZR

Being a moped targeted at the younger generation buyers, the Yamaha Y15ZR is equipped with quite an impressive list of features and an edgy design. Things like full LED headlamps with daytime running lamps and fully digital instrument console as well as the trendy and sharp design definitely impresses many.

Like many other motorcycles from Yamaha, the Y15ZR feels sure-footed while riding, thanks to a very impressive chassis. The meatier tyre setup, disc brake setup on both the wheels and slightly stiff suspension setup makes the Y15ZR an agile handler.

Yamaha YZF-R15

The Yamaha YZF R15 has always been praised for the way it manages to appear a scaled-down version of the mighty Yamaha YZF R1. The new generation model surpasses its predecessor with much sharper visual appeal and much more modern features like fully digital meters and LED lights at front and rear.

The 155cc liquid-cooled, fuel injected engine with which the YZF R15 is blessed is a sweet engineering marvel. The engine is equipped with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA), which makes it feels much more responsive and refined as one would expect it from. In addition to it, the bump in power and torque outputs over its predecessor too is very praiseworthy.

Yamaha Y15ZR

While the Yamaha Y15ZR is meant for making your daily commutes quite engaging, the small fuel tank capacity might be a small deterrent for many. The fuel tank has a capacity of only 4.2 liters, which means that one will need to have frequent stops at fuel stations.

The Y15ZR is designed to be a commuter, but it has no advantages over scooters as far as carrying luggage is concerned. The Y15ZR lacks any luggage hooks as well as under seat storage capacity, which makes carrying shopping bags or any such small baggage quite difficult on move.

Yamaha YZF-R15

The biggest problem of the previous generation Yamaha YZF R15 has been transferred to this new generation model as well – the pillion seat comfort. The pillion perch is positioned at quite a height, which makes it uncomfortable for longer rides

While the LED headlamps of the Yamaha YZF R15 look cool with their slim and minimalistic design, the throw of the light in night conditions is not that good. It requires much more brightness to make the visibility ahead much better in poor light conditions in night.
