Y15ZR Pros & Cons

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.

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 never a fan of underbones my entire life, however, everything changed after I decided to take my friend’s Yamaha Y15ZR for a little spin. Post the short drive, my review is that it is one of the best motorcycles available in the Malaysian market. The vehicle might look slender in its design but is definitely a street performer.

    When it comes to underbone mopeds in Malaysia, there are many options available. However, if I had to look at the segment through and consider the best, I would choose the Yamaha Y15ZR and there are reasons for that. I already own the underbone and am delighted at it. It has the best and most refined engine in the segment. Read More

    Khajeer Sep 04, 2020 for Yamaha Y15ZR

    The Yamaha Y15ZR is a pretty neat package with a new streamlined headlamp design, fully digital speedometer, a wider front tyre, hazard lamp and passing lamp, and new graphics. It has more of a crossover-bike look rather than a true-blue daily commuting motorcycle. The 150cc motor produces 15bhp which is pretty decent for urban riding conditions. The bike is mostly Read More

    Maymuun Ogo 14, 2020 for Yamaha Y15ZR

    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 exception, as the bike mot only feels built to last, bit also looks extremely good. The wide front apron does make the Yamaha Y15ZR appear quite aggressive in terms of Read More

    Rahman Feb 26, 2020 for Yamaha Y15ZR

    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 than you would normally consider it to be. It is driven by a 150cc engine that produces a good power of over 15 bhp. It also has big wheels, which Read More

    While the other cub class bikes look very utilitarian and staid in terms of design, that is not the very same case with the Yamaha Y15ZR. For a cub class bike, the razor sharp and angular design with upswept tail design of the Y15ZR is something which looks edgy. The Yamaha Y15ZR, when viewed head on, impresses with its broad Read More

    I love my Yamaha Y15R. I have been riding it for nearly a year now, and I have no complaints. The performance and riding confidence this bike provides is just outstanding. Its 150 cc power unit gives out 15 hp, which is enough to achieve a triple-digit speed figure. I tell you it is a complete breeze to ride. The Read More

    The Yamaha Y15ZR has gained so much popularity in the market not because it looks stylish and modern, but because at the price at which it is offered, it delivers a smooth and comfortable performance. I have been using this moped for a few months now and till date I have not faced any issue from this vehicle. I use Read More

    It’s been quite some time now since I bought my Yamaha Y15ZR and the experience has been more than overwhelming. I’m a college-going guy, so the Y15ZR is a perfect moped for me. It looks great and delivers a decent mileage too. The 150cc engine packs enough punch and shifting gears is as smooth as you like it. Talking about Read More
