Yamaha R15S Latest Updates

Yamaha has hiked the prices of the entire R15 range. Check out the August 2022 price list here.

Yamaha launched the R15S in a new matte Black colour in July. Find out all the details in this story.

Yamaha R15S Engine

The R15S is powered by a 155cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled 4-valve motor with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA). It makes 18.6PS and 14.1Nm, 0.7PS and 0.6Nm less than the BS4 R15 V3. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. It also gets a slip-and-assist clutch. The signature Deltabox frame has been tweaked a bit for the R15S. The India-spec motorcycle employs a 41mm conventional telescopic fork and an aluminium swingarm with a monoshock unit. Braking hardware comprises a 282mm front disc with a twin-piston caliper and a 220mm rear disc with a single-piston caliper. The R15S rolls on 17-inch alloys shod with a 100/80 bias-ply front and 140/70 radial rear tyre.

Yamaha R15S Variants

Yamaha offers the YZF R15S in Racing Blue and Matte Black colours

Yamaha R15S Design

The highlight of the Yamaha R15S V3 is the “practical” single-seat configuration. With this model, Yamaha intends to make the supersport more suited to everyday use. Yamaha hasn’t tinkered around with the styling of the new R15. Like most supersport bikes, it gets sharp and edgy bodywork. The Racing Blue variant gets refreshed graphics, a silver strip, and the R15 logo plastered across the fairing.

Yamaha R15S Features

The Yamaha R15 features sleek twin LED headlights and an LED tail lamp. It gets a full-digital LCD dash that displays a range of information. You get two trip meters, an average fuel efficiency indicator, a gear position indicator, and a bar-type tachometer. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard. The R15S also gets Variable Valve Actuation, Yamaha lingo for variable valve timing. Thanks to the tech, the R15 can eke out maximum top-end performance without sacrificing on low-end grunt.

Yamaha R15S Competitors

The Yamaha R15S has no direct rivals. The Suzuki Gixxer SF offers similar displacement but its motor isn’t as sophisticated or powerful. The KTM RC 125 matches it and in some accounts, even surpasses the R15 in terms of kit offered. However, it is not only more expensive but also lacks performance.

What is good and bad in R15S?

  • R15S Positives

    Perfect track tool for those who are beginning sport riding.Variable Valve Actuation makes the R15 a lot more usable in everyday situations.Rear radial tyre is standard and you get the option to fit grippy Metzeler rubber.

  • R15S Negatives

    Riding posture is on the committed side.Build quality and fit and finish levels have dipped massively.LED headlight fails to light up the road.

  • Expert's Conclusion

    The R15 v3 remains one potent small-capacity supersport for beginners. In its version 3.0 guise, it has become sharper and more focused, making it great for sport riding or trac enthusiasts. However, the aggressive riding stance could cause discomfort if you intend to use the bike for daily commuting and quality of components have also gone down.

    It's the best sports bike in the Indian market which produces much more power than any other bikes in this segment it's the best bike for power lovers it gives good mileage of 40 plus with this power but I think its price must've a little low in (Jaipur ) overall this bike is good looking sporty colors with good comforts on both seats and Yamaha gives the best after sales services it also has low maintenance cost service cost its a good bike in my opinion.
