Yamaha Motor India announced the launch of the heavily updated YZF-R15 V4.0 in our market with prices starting from Rs 1,67,800 (ex-showroom, Delhi) onwards. Here we explain the top five highlights of the new Yamaha YZF-R15 V4.0.
The latest iteration of the YZF-R15 gets a major makeover. The revised styling brings a single-pod bi-functional LED headlight instead of the twin-pod headlamp on the outgoing version. The updated headlight is flanked by twin LED DRLs. Other styling cues on the Yamaha YZF-R15 V4.0 include a full-fairing, an M air-duct design, step-up seat, and a side-slung exhaust. The new motorcycle is available in five colour choices – Metallic Red, Dark Knight, Racing Blue, R15M, and Monster Energy MotoGP. The prices vary depending on the colour option selected.

Electronic rider aids standard across the range comprise dual-channel ABS, traction control system, and side-stand engine cut-off function. The Racing Blue and R15M versions further benefit from a quickshifter.
Apart from the styling, Yamaha has revised the hardware on the new model. The suspension setup now comprises upside-down telescopic front forks instead of conventional units on the old motorcycle. The rear continues to use a preload-adjustable mono-shock. The braking tasks are handled by a 282mm single disc at the front and a 220mm rotor at the back. The YZF-R15 V4.0 retains the deltabox frame.
The mechanical specifications continue to use a 155cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with the Variable Valve Actuation system. Linked to a six-speed gearbox, the motor makes 18.1bhp at 10,000rpm and 14.2Nm of peak torque at 7,500rpm.
