Yamaha YZF R15 [2011-2018] Summary

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)

      Best to buy only for bachelor purposes but it has enough punch in the engine to make a better riding experience. and it looks super premium sporty bike. service & maintenance are very effort-able and service centres are also available in multi places .better in riding without any vibrations on highways also & only defective for not suitable for family purposes.

      The only complete package bike in India

      1 year ago


      Bharath

      I bought the yamaha r15 despite having booked a pulsar 150. Initially, I planned to use my bike for a daily commute and hence wanted a decently powered bike with good mileage. However, I went against everyone's advice and bought the yamaha r15, as I learnt to ride a bike on the yamaha rx135 and own it to date.
      The bike has the most refined engine in the under-200cc segment and has amazing balance. The mrf tires do an excellent job providing great road grip and I haven't felt more confident navigating corners on any other bikes than the r15. For starters, the riding posture is aggressive but nothing to worry about as one can get used to riding the bike in an almost upright posture in a few days (ps: I am 5'8"). I have never experienced any wrist pain or back pain - I used to ride for ~30km daily in mumbai traffic (can't get worse). It has a good pickup in the lower gears as well as in the upper gears and I used to get a mileage of ~45kmpl in the city and 60+ on highways (i'd got 80kmpl on mumbai-pune highway riding at 100km+). The riding style and fuel (91octane fuel gives better mileage and ride quality) matter in extracting a good mileage. The service costs were reasonable at about 1-2k per service and I didn't face any issue except once when the clutch cable was cut. A couple of things to be careful of are the mirrors which can get loosened and park your bike in a safe place to avoid scratches, dents, and falls.
      Finally, if you have a flair for riding a powerful (power is not just in the cc), good-looking bike which also returns a good mileage - then the r15 is for you!

      Riding the bike since 10 years! Amazing sporty bike speed loving guys.

      2 years ago


      Ronit Gehlot

      Buying experience was quite good, when I saw the bike it was much tempting and I was eager to take its ride, after taking its ride I made my mind and bought it, people get used to attract towards its look and you feel very glad when people ask you about your bike since it is very appealing to them due to its sporty look and ultimate design. I haven't seen a bike before having such look and with a good mileage plus great pickup and speed. Coming towards servicing and maintenance it consumes very less maintenance and service it provides you long ride in one service, yes but I had a bad experience in showroom regarding service of the bike they just touchup and give you the bike in service and also if there is any problem they never settle it instead they ask us to replace the part.
      Pros:- very good and sporty look with good mileage. Appealing to everybody when you ride it.
      Cons:- back seat is not for elder person. Yamaha bike servicing by authorized service center is not good except few.

      Young Indian sport bike !

      2 years ago


      Abhishek Pal

      This bike is one of them , that every young Indian dreamed. I am owning this bike from last 5 years and still I can surely commit that this is best bike in 150cc segment. this is first sport bike in India which comes with best in speed , performance and successful in between Indian youths , one thing I love about this bike is that anyone can afford it and can buy it still and one thing that I have experienced that if you kept this bike properly and provide it regular service, then after riding 30000 km still my engine is working fine and one more thing in my experience, I can say that no other bike can compete it in 150cc segments in any of form factors whether we talk about speed, thrust, power it deliver and in style also.

      King of the 150cc Segment - Yamaha R15

      3 years ago


      People Call Me Ash

      I bought a used R15 V2 to learn riding a sports bike and to improve my riding skills. According to me, R15 is an excellent bike for beginners. The bike os, not the smoothest one. It has a considerable amount of vibrations. It is mainly because it is a single cylinder and a high compression engine. Gear shifting is very smooth and precise. Overall there are no reliability issues since it is a YAMAHA. I learnt a lot of stuff on this bike like cornering, rev-matching, engine braking, counter-steering and so on.
      I have seen people complain about the riding posture. It is not very aggressive. It all depends on your fitness level. I have done many 1000kms long trip. And I have covered close to 550kms on a single day. Of course, you will feel tired but it is not that uncomfortable.
      As far as looks are concerned there are no haters for this design. The performance is the best in class. No other 150 cc bike can compete with the R15.
      Maintainance cost is a bit high. It will cost you close to 2k per service. And I am not very satisfied with Yamaha's servicing.
      P.S I have covered close to 40k kms in my bike.
      Pros:
      Powerful engine for city commutes and weekend rides.
      Very Stable at speeds above 130kmph.
      Cruising speed of 120kmph is great considering a 150cc engine.
      Maintainance cost is pretty decent and easy on the pocket.
      Great looks. Definitely a head turner.
      An affordable everyday supersport.
      Cons:
      Lack of ABS.
      Poor Headlights despite having twin headlamps.
      Vibrations near the redline.
      The MRF tyres aren't that great. Michelin Radial tyres would be a better option.

      This bike is a complete package in driving balancing as well as mileage. Although the pillion seat is little uncomfortable. The riding experience of this bike is one of the best experiences in comparison to other companies. Servicing and maintenance charge is quiet nominal. One of the greatest cons is that if your mother or father are old in age they will find great difficulty in sitting.
