Born from Yamaha’s racing DNA, the new learner approved YZF-R15M takes racing inspiration to the next level thanks to a punchy liquid-cooled 155cc that runs a high compression ratio for sporty performance. Plus Variable Valve Actuation improves low end torque as well as top end grunt.
Equipped with traction control, A&S clutch, a quick shifter, smartphone connectivity and stunning R1M inspired graphics, this entry level machine offers a lightweight sporty option for the city commute.
The up-shift Quick Shifter allows for clutch-less shifting of gears. It increases the comfort of riding because it eliminates the need to use the clutch or throttle before and after a gearshift.
The liquid cooled single overhead camshaft fuel injection engine churns out maximum power of 13.5kW (18.4PS) and maximum torque of 14.2N.m (1.4kgf.m). What’s more the engine is equipped with a Traction Control System, Assist and Slipper (A&S) clutch and an up-shift Quick Shifter.
This is a unique high-performance VVA system that provides torque for ease of use even at low RPM. There are two intake valve cams: one for low- to mid-range rpm and another for high rpm. They switch between each other at the 7400rpm mark to ensure good power and torque is present throughout the entire rev range.
Enjoy great performance with superior control. R15M comes with 282mm front and 220mm rear disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), which means precise braking and restricted wheel lockups even at high speed. This ensures a confident, inspiring ride.
To take the sporty handling on twisty roads to the next level, the new R15M employs an upside down front suspension fork with 37mm inner tubes. Upside down front forks improve rigidity and provide stability while taking high speed turns or during high braking input.
With YZF-R15M you can now stay connected even on the move. The Yamaha Y-Connect app displays phone notifications on your instrument cluster screen, while diagnostic information, parking location and other features can be viewed on the smartphone app.
The R15 comes with a dedicated electronic TCS system that reduces the chances of wheelspin - or slippage due to loss of traction. If the system detects the rear wheel about to spin when starting out, it provides combined control of the ignition timing and fuel injection volume to instantly adjust engine power output, thereby aiding in delivering smooth starts.
The racing-inspired bodywork is now more aerodynamic, with better airflow management the rider can reach top speed faster and is also helpful in the high speed stability of the machine.
