About YZF R15 [2011-2018]

The Yamaha R15 has been on sale in India since 2008 and is the Japanese bike maker’s premium 150cc sports bike. Underpinned by the same deltabox frame from the v-ixxion and eschewing a design from the larger R1, it has been popular with those who want efficiency with a whole load of sportiness. Yamaha facelifted the bike in 2011 and dubbed the new version as R15 V 2.0.

At the heart of the R15 is a 150cc single cylinder unit that produces 17bhp and 15Nm of torque. The engine transmits power via a six-speed gearbox and a chain drive. It gets telescopic forks in the front and a monocross unit at the back. When it was launched, the R15 was one of the first bikes to offer a rear disc brake and continues to do so even on the facelifted model. The front unit is a dual piston 267mm disc while the rear gets a dual piston 220mm unit. Standard features include pilot lamps.

The Yamaha R15 competes with the CBR150R, Hero ZMR and the KTM Duke 200. The R15 is priced at Rs 1,18,838 (ex-showroom,Delhi)

    Sibling rivalry – Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0
    20 February 2018
    Charles Pennefather

    The R15 set a standard when it entered the Indian market well over a decade ago, and the changes to it since then have been marginal, except for the Version 2.0. Now, though, there’s an all-new one, and it is priced really well. However, the older-gen R15 is still currently...
