The motorcycle comes with new colour options for the new model year
- Yamaha R15 V4 updated internationally
- Gets new colour options
- Could be launched in India soon
To begin with, the motorcycle is offered in a full-black colour option that, in our opinion, is similar to its bigger sibling- the R7 that has been showcased in India a couple of times. It also comes with blacked-out components. Then there is what Yamaha calls Dark Bluish Gray Metallic. As its name suggests, the main paint is dark blue, complemented by the neon yellow on the wheels and graphics across its bodywork. This paint also sports a bit of silver near the fairing. Lastly, there is the iconic Yamaha Blue and black combination also seen on the R1. This is slightly different from the Racing Blue colour option available on the Indian-spec motorcycle which is a combination of two different shades of blue.
Now, other than the new colours, the 2024 R15 V4 gets the same hardware and components as before. It continues with a 155cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, SOHC, four-valve, fuel-injected engine with a VVA system that offers 18.1bhp and 14.1Nm. The R15 also boasts traction control, a two-way quickshifter and ride modes along with ABS. Most of these features are unheard of in the 150cc segment.
The R15 V4 in its 2024 form costs close to Rs 3.10 lakh in Japan, nearly two times the price of its Indian counterpart. Well, that said, we can expect Yamaha to update the R15 V4 only by next year with new colours on offer.
