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.

Recent Updates of Y15ZR

The Yamaha Y15ZR comes featuring LED headlamps with LED DRLs, an all-digital instrument cluster, attractive design language, and large alloy wheels. A 150cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that makes 15.4 PS and 13.8 Nm provides the Yamaha Y15ZR with its juices. The power is then channelled to the rear wheel via a five-speed gearbox. For ample braking power, there are disc brakes at both front and rear. Earlier this year, Yamaha also launched the Y15ZR Ultraman Limited Edition and the Y15ZR Doxou. While the former was limited to 100 units, the latter is priced at RM 8,868, which is RM 500 more than the standard version’s price of RM 8,168.

Considering the fact that the underbone vehicles are selling like hot cakes in the Malaysian market, Yamaha has got a decent product line-up for this segment. These products vary with an engine capacity of 115cc to 150cc. The Y15ZR, as you must have guessed by the name, has the 150cc engine. Even though this is an underbone motorcycle, for Yamaha it does not mean that it should be ugly or dull. Yamaha’s thought process is evident in the way in the Y15ZR looks and performs. It is definitely one of the most sporty-looking mopeds available in the country right now.


Like we mentioned already, the Yamaha Y15ZR is one sporty underbone motorcycle. And all of this style quotient is from the way it is designed and characterized. The Y15ZR features very sharp and dynamic bodywork. It looks young from every angle. Even the graphics and stickering has been done for the electrifying experience.

The front of the Y15ZR is embellished with LED position lights that enhance the stylish appearance. The side fairing carries the sporty look flawlessly covering the 150cc single cylinder engine and the massive radiator. The side view of the Y15ZR is further enhanced by the striking alloy wheels and exhaust, which we have heard sounds pretty cool.

The tail section of the Y15ZR features a bright LED tail light that gels with the overall look of the bike. Yamaha has also provided a stylish rear fender with the Y15ZR, which we usually see in higher capacity motorcycles.

There is a multi-functional instrument cluster on the Y15ZR. It features an analogue tachometer and a digital speedometer. The font on the tachometer is very cool. It is similar to what we have seen in that of the bigger Yamaha motorcycles. There is also a small LCD display.

Ride & Handling

Yamaha has set the riding position on the Y15ZR to neutral. This enables the rider to spend long hours on the saddle without too much strain. Talking about the saddle, there is a slight hump at the rear to keep the rider from moving around a lot.

Even though the engine is powerful and gives a good performance, being a single cylinder it does transfer a noticeable amount of vibration on the seat, foot pegs, and handle. It is not a deal breaker but, yes, it is present.

As far as the handling is concerned, being an underbone motorcycle, the Y15ZR handles corner quite well. 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. It seems that the suspension setup on the Y15ZR has been carefully tuned to somehow provide an optimal combination of performance, efficiency, and comfort.

With a weight of only 115 kg, the Y15ZR 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.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

Powering the Y15ZR is a 150cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled engine. It is tuned to produce a total of 15 horses at 8,500 revs and generate 13.8 Nm of torque at 7,000 revs. It is mated to a 5-speed constant mesh gearbox. The fuel injection makes the Y15ZR a breeze to ride as the throttle response is quick and precise.

These power and torque figures are more than sufficient to take the Y15ZR post the 100 kmph mark with the throttle fully pinned. Also, the bike is quite lightweight when compared to similar products on the market. This again adds to the performance and efficiency of the Y15ZR.

Braking & Safety

The braking duties on the Yamaha Y15ZR are handled by single disc brakes both at the front and the rear. The front rotor is of 245 mm in diameter. The Y15ZR also gets wide tires - front is 70/90-17 and the rear is 120/70-17. The wider tires provide more contact area with the ground underneath and hence increase the braking and handling capabilities of the Y15ZR.


The Yamaha Y15ZR promises to give all a rider's need. It is designed to present you with the comforts and affordability of a normal underbone motorcycle in a very attractive packaging. Its sporty and dynamic looks appeal to a lot of young buyers. It has got a reliable engine that promises to deliver performance and efficiency as required. And the bike is easy to ride in dense city traffic. So, if all this excites you, then you can get a brand-new Y15ZR at a price of RM 7,888. It is available in 4 colors - blue, red, yellow, and black. There is even a GP edition if you are a MotoGP Yamaha fan. It costs RM 8,588.

    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
