YZF-R15 Pros & Cons

Things We Like in YZF-R15

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.

Things We Dont Like in YZF-R15

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.

Recent Updates of Yamaha YZF-R15

The Malaysian market recently saw the launch of the limited-edition Yamaha YZF R15 Monster which is priced at RM 12,618 and features a Race Blue and Black colour scheme. Even the standard edition YZF R15 has seen a few updates of its own and comes with new colours and graphics. The fully-faired styling of this superbike has some of its elements inspired from the M1 Moto GP bike and gets a central intake with slim LED headlights on both sides. The overall design of this bike looks very sharp and muscular and hence appeals more easily to the younger generation. At its heart, the YZF R15 is powered by 155cc liquid-cooled fuel-injected SOHC single-cylinder engine that churns out 19 hp of power at 10000 rpm and 14.7 Nm of torque at 8500 rpm. In terms of safety, this bike gets a 282mm disc brake at the front 220mm disc at the rear.

Overview

Yamaha launched the new for 2018 YZF R15 near the end of July this year. The R15 has become the hallmark of small capacity performance and the gateway bike for motorcycling enthusiasts all over Asia. Especially in India and Indonesia. Yamaha has also kept the name alive through three generations now and the current generation showcases what constant evolution can achieve. Thoroughly enhanced with features like VVA and slipper clutch, the Yamaha YZF R15 promises to be an even better bike than it already was. Priced at RM 11988 at the time of its launch, it faces off against the KTM Duke 200 and the Modenas Pulsar RS200.

Design

The crazy superbike like fully faired styling has always been one of the biggest draws for the Yamaha YZF R15. The newest R1 inspired instalment does not disappoint either. The front end is inspired by the M1 Moto GP bike and features a central intake with slim LED headlights on both sides.

Above it is a large and aerodynamic windshield. Between them are aerodynamically shaped rear view mirrors. The tank looks muscular and chiselled. The gills in the front of the tank make it look menacing. The side view is surprisingly bereft of aggressive slashes and vents and yet is unmistakably Yamaha. A large angled low mounted muffler carries the lines of the bike very well. The rear subframe is beefy. The racy tail section and the seat are clearly inspired from the R1. The tail section is a hollow piece that is see through from one end to the other. The tail section might be a work of art but the seat on top of it is nigh on useless. There are no grab rails either. The single piece taillight also cuts a pretty figure from the rear. The only criticism is drawn by the indicators mounted on stalks that look very much like an afterthought. There are three colors to choose from – blue, black and yellow.

The R15 gets a new fully digital LCD display. The information is well laid out and easy to read. There is even a welcome screen that can be customized by the rider. Taking a page from the handbook of more serious motorcycles, it comes with a gear position indicator and a shift indicator light for optimum gear shifting. The bike has compact and well-proportioned dimensions of 1990 mm (L) X 725 mm (W) X 1135 mm (H) with a wheelbase of 1325 mm. There is 170 mm of ground clearance. 17-inch Y spoke alloys wheels with wide 100/80 front and 140/70 rear tires round out the bike’s appearance.

Ride & Handling

The R15 has always been a serious performance bike and this is no different. At 815 mm, many people will find the seat difficult to use. The rear set foot pegs and low handlebars make for a crouched seating position that is meant for racing and little else. This bike cannot be used for commuting. The rigid 37 mm USD front forks and monoshock rear also have the same things to say about comfort. They do however make up for it by giving the bike excellent handling. The new more rigid Deltabox frame is complemented by a lighter and wider aluminium swing arm. The 139 kg weight makes it very easy to flick around. Turn-ins are made easy by the wide and confidence boosting tires.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

A 155 cc liquid-cooled and fuel injected SOHC single cylinder mated to a six-speed transmission powers this Turn-ins beast. 19 hp at 10000 rpm and 14.7 Nm of torque at 8500 rpm are at the disposal of its rider’s left hand. With variable valve actuation on board, this engine can rev higher and possesses a wide power band. Yamaha has also included improvements like better air flow through bigger valves, airbox, injectors and throttle bodies. A forged piston and Diasil cylinder keep the engine cooler. A bypass thermostat allows lower complemented times. The slipper clutch allows smoother and quicker downshifts. All these features combine to give the bike better performance at higher revs without feeling like it is going to explode.

Braking & Safety

Braking has been improved with a bigger 282 mm disc brake on the front and a 220 mm disc at the rear. The brakes have enough bite for the intended purpose. However, Yamaha does not offer ABS on the bike, even as an option. At such a high price range, this decision does not seem to make a lot of sense.

Verdict

Yamaha has been introducing some very interesting bike recently and this might just be the most exciting of them all. Yamaha’s ardent fans should be more than satisfied with the YZF R15’s newest iteration.

    Stylishly fast

    As a young rider, I’m always thrilled by big superbikes and sports bikes. However, with a tight budget, I had to settle down for something less than that, and I bought the YZF R15. It looks very familiar to the other bigger machines and flaunts aggressive, sporty looks of a racing bike. I purchased it in yellow paint, and it Read More
