Yamaha Y15ZR Pros & Cons

By Abhishek Katariya on Aug 12, 2020
Things We Like in 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.

Things We Dont Like in 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.

Recent Updates of Yamaha Y15ZR

Yamaha Y15ZR received some remarkable changes and new features last year. Aesthetically, the moped poses sporty looks with its underbone structure, and it is also well-packed on the feature-front. Under the metal skin, the V2 generation houses the same 150-cc, liquid-cooled mill generating 15 PS of power and 13.8 Nm of torque. Other niceties include an LCD instrument console, alloy wheels, wider front tyre, and efficient braking. It comes in four color options - blue, red, dark blue, and grey. Yamaha Y15ZR is priced at RM 8,168. A couple of months ago, the leaked images of Yamaha Y15ZR V3 had also appeared on the internet; however, their authenticity has not yet been confirmed.

Y15ZR Overview

Yamaha Y15ZR is one of the most happening underbone vehicles available in the Malaysian market, carrying a powerful engine and eye-popping looks that one cannot miss once the vehicle comes into action. Yamaha released the updated Y15ZR last year and showed its seriousness about taking charge of the small-capacity bike segment in the country. The Y15ZR, as you must have guessed by the name, has the 150-cc engine. Aesthetically, the moped features a sporty style with its underbone structure, and it is also well-packed on the feature-front.

Yamaha Y15ZR Design

As mentioned earlier, Yamaha Y15ZR is one sporty underbone motorcycle that features very sharp and dynamic bodywork. The moped looks young from every angle. For an electrifying experience, the bikemaker used attractive graphics and stickers on the design front.

Upfront, the Y15ZR is embellished with LED position lights and a tiny cowl on top painted in the body colour. On the sides, the fairing carries the sporty look flawlessly, covering the 150-cc single-cylinder engine and the massive radiator. Not only this, but the striking alloy wheels and exhaust further enhance the side view of the motorcycle.

Coming to the tail section where Y15ZR houses a bright LED tail light that complements the overall look of the bike. It also incorporates a stylish rear fender, which we usually see in higher capacity motorcycles. The available color options are blue, red, dark blue, and grey. 

There is an updated multi-functional instrument cluster featuring an analogue tachometer and a digital speedometer. The cool tachometer looks similar to ones seen in bigger Yamaha motorcycles. It also houses a small LCD.

Y15ZR Ride & Handling


The riding position of the Y15ZR is neutral; thus it enables the rider to spend long hours on the saddle without much strain. Also, there is a slight hump at the rear to keep the rider from moving around a lot.

The bike houses a single-cylinder engine that transfers a noticeable amount of vibration on the seat, footpegs, and handle. It is sturdy and delivers good performance.

As far as the handling is concerned, being an underbone motorcycle, it is easy to handle on the corners. Of course, it is not advised to really push it hard in the corners because it is not built for that, but, yes, it sure is fun to ride. The suspension setup has also been carefully tuned to provide an optimal combination of performance, efficiency, and comfort.

Even though the bike carries the same 4.2-litre fuel tank, the weight has been increased slightly by 2 kg from the previous model, bringing the total weight to 117 kg (approximately). It is also an easy motorbike to ride in the city as manoeuvring it through a traffic jam, or narrow streets would not be a cumbersome task.

Yamaha also revised the rear monoshock slightly, giving a better rebound damping.

Yamaha Y15ZR Engine & Fuel Consumption

Y15ZR is powered by a 150-cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine generating 15 horses at 8,500 revs and 13.8 Nm of torque at 7,000 revs. It is coupled with a 5-speed constant mesh gearbox. The fuel injection makes it a breeze to ride as the throttle response is quick and precise.

The power and torque numbers are more than sufficient to take the Y15ZR post the 100 kmph mark with the throttle fully pinned. Moreover, it is quite lightweight as compared to rivals, which further enhances its efficiency and performance.

Y15ZR Braking & Safety

Yamaha Y15ZR comes with single disc brakes both at the front and the rear. The front rotor is 245 mm in diameter. Yamaha increased the size of the front tyre, which is now 90/80-17 while the rear one is the same 120/70-17. The increased front tyre width increases the braking and handling capabilities of the Y15ZR and boosts the rider confidence.

Yamaha Y15ZR Verdict

Yamaha Y15ZR comes with a very attractive package. Its sporty and dynamic looks appeal to a lot of young buyers; its reliable engine promises to deliver performance and, it is easy to ride in dense city traffic. So, if all these excite you, grab the brand-new Y15ZR at a price of RM 8,168.

    I was left spoilt to select my favorite color tone out of the four amazing shades in which it was available. I was shown the complimentary Yamaha disc lock that was provided by the model for increased safety. LED lamps include eight mentos to offer better and more distinct visibility while riding through dark patches. I was highly impressed at Read More

    Before riding an underbone moped for the first time, I wasn’t quite sure that it could be as powerful as a motorcycle. The Yamaha Y15ZR changed my opinion. The 150cc engine makes around 15 horsepower, which is more or less the same as a normal motorcycle. Plus, having big wheels makes it more stable and safe while riding at a Read More

    Yamaha has produced a champion with the new Yamaha Y15ZR. My brother bought it recently as his daily commuter and one ride on it told me this scooter is one of the best modes of daily transportation. The 150 cc engine was surprisingly powerful and the scooter was very nifty in my hands - turning corners or overtaking has never Read More
