YZF-R15 Pros & Cons

By Abhishek Katariya on Aug 14, 2020
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.

YZF-R15 Overview

Yamaha YZF-R15 has been one of the few 150-cc bikes that could excite newbies and experts in the same manner. 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. In the Malaysian market, Yamaha launched the YZF R15 in 2018 and updated it with some new colors and graphics last year. The current-generation YZF-R15 features a slightly bigger and more powerful engine, sharper handling, and a more exciting design over its predecessors. Priced at RM 11988, it faces off against the KTM Duke 200 and the Modenas Pulsar RS200.


Yamaha YZF-R15 Design

When it comes to the looks, Yamaha hits the bull’s eye without any doubt. The R15 tries to imitate the visual appeal and stance of the mighty YZF R1, and in some ways, it does it quite well. 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, there is a large and aerodynamic windshield. The fuel tank is muscular and chiseled whose front gills make it look menacing. 

On the sides, a large angled low mounted muffler carries the lines of the bike very well. The rear subframe is beefy. The R1 clearly inspires the racy tail section and the seat. The tail section might be a work of art, but the seat on top of it is almost 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. 

The bike has well-proportioned dimensions of 1990 mm length, 725 mm wide, 1135 mm tall, and a 1325 mm wheelbase. The ground clearance measures 170 mm, while the 17-inch Y spoke alloys wheels with wide 100/80 front and 140/70 rear tires round out the bike’s appearance. The available color choices are Race Blu, Matte Black, and Matte Yellow.

Inside the cockpit, the fully digital instrument panel displays the speed, rpm, odometer, gear position indicator, fuel consumption, fuel capacity, and warning lights. Moreover, a gear shift warning light is also included, and LED lighting is used all around.

YZF-R15 Ride & Handling

Yamaha R15 comes with a ride height of 815 mm, which many riders find it difficult to grab. The rear set footpegs and low handlebars make for a crouched seating position that is meant for racing and little else. This bike cannot be used for commuting. Also, the rigid 37 mm USD front forks and monoshock rear have the same things to say about comfort, but they make up for it by giving the bike excellent handling. A lighter and wider aluminium swingarm complements the rigid Deltabox frame. The 139 kg weight makes it very easy to flick around. Turn-ins are made easy by the wide and confidence-boosting tires. 

Yamaha YZF-R15 Engine & Fuel Consumption

Yamaha YZF R15 is powered by a 155-cc liquid-cooled and fuel-injected SOHC single-cylinder producing 19 hp of power at 10000 rpm and 14.7 Nm of peak torque at 8500 rpm. The engine is paired with a six-speed transmission. With variable valve actuation on board, it can rev higher and possesses a wide powerband. 

Not only this, but Yamaha has also included improvements like better airflow through bigger valves, airbox, injectors, and throttle bodies. A forged piston and Diasil cylinder keep the engine cooler. The slipper clutch allows smoother and quicker downshifts, whereas a bypass thermostat allows lower complemented times. The combination of all these features results in better performance of the bike at higher revs without feeling like it is going to explode.

YZF-R15 Braking & Safety

For braking and safety, Yamaha equipped the R15 with a 282 mm disc brake at the front and another disc at the rear. Though these appear enough for the intended purpose, it would have been better if Yamaha brought ABS on board to supervise the braking duties. At such a high price range, this decision does not seem to make a lot of sense.


Yamaha YZF-R15 Verdict

Yamaha has been introduced some very interesting bikes 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.

    If it is about an amazing 150cc sports bike then the latest YZF R15 is the leader in the segment. I was completely taken aback by the design and appearance of the bike and it rightly carries the Yamaha R-series lineage.
