Yamaha has introduced the pure lightweight sport bike experience through its R15 in India. The feel is so different that no other bike can even be compared to this R series DNA and from its launch date to the present time, it is simply unbeatable. The first generation of R15 was the most loved version of the sport bike, balancing the practicality and performance on a single platform.
YZF-R15, as the company named it, is a 149.8 cc, 1-cylinder, liquid cooled and fuel injected machine producing 16.8 BHP @ 8500 rpm and 15 NM @ 7500 rpm. At its time of launch, 150 cc machines were supposed to produce 12-13 BHP and fuel injection was a dream for Indian bikes. The bike came with a 6-speed transmission, which too was a fascination on an Indian made bike till that time.
The R15 version 1.0 comes with a fully faired design and uses a twin headlight structure at the front. It is one of the best looking designs in India and this tag is carried with it even in its current generation. It gets a perfect aerodynamic design with a single, long seat for comfortable 2-person ride. The rear end gets a stretched mudguard and it comes in eye catching bright as well as dark and mature shades. The semi digital instrument console can be considered as the best of its time and the first generation of R15 was a true example of 'India first' engineering by Yamaha.
Yamaha retails the second generation named R15 version 2.0 for its lightweight sport bike category. It gets split seats, new exhaust system and a tyre hugger for the rear wheel. It looks sportier and comes with a premium track bike essence. Recently, R15S has been launched in the Indian automobile market. The bike carries a cross DNA resemblance to both the versions but retails as an independent variant. It carries the ease of version 1.0 with the technical updation of the second version.
R15 when first launched was retailed for INR 97,000 and the introduction of second version took the same to INR 1,07,000. Currently, it gets a price tag of INR 1,14,241-1,17,373.
