Born of Yamaha’s racing DNA that shaped legends like M1, The R1M and the R-series, The R15M takes the racing quotient to next level with stunning graphics, R1 inspired New Color TFT Meter, 3D Emblem & Special Seat, 155 CC LC4V SOHC FI ENGINE WITH VVA equipped with a Traction Control System and a Quick Shifter.
The new headlight features a single bi-functional LED unit emitting both the low and high beam. Characterized by increased brightness (Class-D), the unit’s light weight and compactness has enabled the new highly aerodynamic fairing (cowling) design. To give the face a strong visual impact despite its compact size, LED position lights were placed on the outer extremes of the machine to not only keep the frontal projected area small but also to create the commanding appearance of a big bike.
With better airflow management the rider can reach the top speed faster and is also helpful in the high speed stability of the machine. The liquid cooled single overhead camshaft fuel injection engine churns out a maximum horse power of 13.5kW(18.4PS)/10000r/min and maximum torque of 14.2N.m (1.4kgf.m) / 7500r/min.
The Quick Shifter (up-shift) allows for clutch-less shifting of gears. It increases the comfort of riding the vehicle since it eliminates the need to use the clutch or throttle before and after a gearshift.
