Recent Updates of Yamaha Y15ZR

The Yamaha Y15ZR has been in the Malaysian market since 2015. It was refreshed for 2017 and in 2018 the GP edition of the underbone was launched. This came in Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team livery.

The Yamaha Y15ZR is powered by a 150cc fuel injected and water cooled SOHC engine producing 15.1 hp and 13.8 Nm. It is available with a 5-speed transmission. Fuel efficiency figures are good at 35 km/L on city roads and 46 km/L on highways. Yamaha sells it in 4 color options. Being one of the first performance-oriented underbones to be launched in the market, this bike is extremely popular among the youth of Malaysia. This is despite its motorcycle-like selling price of RM 8361.

Overview

Performance underbones get very good reception in South East Asia, especially in Malaysia. So much so that they justify the existence of an underbone that costs as much as some motorcycles. The Yamaha Y15ZR is one such underbone that not just exists but thrives across 4 different countries under different names. It has been on sale since 2015 and refreshed in 2017. 2018 saw the launch of a new GP edition of the kapchai that came wrapped in the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team livery. With the likes of Honda RS150R, Benelli RFS150i, and the SYM VF3i, there is no shortage of competition in the segment despite the motorcycle like pricing. And there is no shortage of demand either.

Design

This is a fast bike and you can tell that just by looking at it. Race inspired styling elements were present everywhere even before the Moto GP livery. The body is festooned with sharp cuts and edges that make it appear ready to pick a fight. There are mean looking LED lights below the big halogen headlight. Taillight gets the LED treatment too. There are sharp louvers and a motorcycle like a rear fender that complete the look that belies its kapchai nature. The instrument cluster follows suit with its combination of large tachometer and the interactive LCD digital display that functions as the speedometer. It even has two different customizable welcome screens. There are 4 color options – yellow, black, red and blue – that add extra flair to the bike’s appearance. It also gets a chain holder that keeps the chain in place. Its compact dimensions at 1960 mm (L) x 670 mm (W) x 1080 mm (H) make it perfect for carving through traffic. Seat height at 780 mm combined with its handlebar position gives it a racy yet comfortable riding stance.  Ground clearance is also decent at 135 mm. There are thin and lightweight 17” die-cast alloys at each end shod with 70/90 tires in the front and 120/70 tires in the rear.

Ride & Handling

Being sporty goes beyond edgy styling and an overpowered engine. The bike should inspire confidence through its suspension components and handling. The Yamaha uses telescopic front forks and a monoshock in the rear. At 115 kg, it is lighter than all its competitors by a big margin. All this translates into a setup that is easy to lean into corners. The riding stance also allows attempting crazy leans on corners without compromising on comfort on long rides. The tires are decently grippy but their width does hold the rider a bit back. Slightly wider tires should be especially welcome.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

The engine is a 150cc fuel injected and water cooled unit with 4 valves and SOHC. Peak power output is 15.1 hp at 8500 rpm and peak torque is 13.8 Nm at 7000 rpm. The transmission uses a five-speed gearbox with chain final drive, which happens to be one less than all its competitors. The power band is wide and most of it resides high in the rev range between 7000 and 9000 rpm. Low gearing allows for fiery performance. It is incredibly easy to pull wheelies on this supercub. The bike feels enthusiastic and reaches a top speed of 120 kmph without straining the engine too much. The EFI mapping is not completely geared towards performance though. The 4.2-litre tank lasts for 160-190 km depending on the riding habits. Achieving 35 kmpl on city roads and 46 kmpl on highways, however, should not be too difficult.

Braking & Safety

There are 245 mm discs with single piston calipers on each end doing stopping duties. They don’t feel inadequate in any way but the missing ABS does seem odd at this point.

    Yamaha Y15ZR Review

    Going by the company’s tagline for Y15ZR “King of the Street”, the moped does really well to look good, which is the first thing that buyers look for. However, for me, the power forms the greater aspect. With a 150-cc, single cylinder engine, it makes over 15 hp power and close to 14 Nm of torque. The acceleration is awesome Read More
