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.

Missing ABS

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.
