Yamaha R15…

All new R15_Racing Yellow>

Rumors of Yamaha entering the 150cc range of sport bikes is getting bigger by the day, the new motorcycle would as the story go’s be the Yamaha YZF-R15 a 150cc full fairing motorcycle, with the highest horsepower engine (22hp) in its class at a dry weight of just 120kilo.If the rumors are correct, then Yamaha will take the crown in the 150cc range from the Honda CBR-150R. The Yamaha YZF-R15 is supposed to be a four-stroke, liquid cooled single cylinder, 4-valve SOHC, 149.8cc engine with oil-cooling and electric fuel injection.

To quote an insiders at Yamaha the Yamaha YZF-R15 would be a real R-series and is packed with Grand Prix technology. The Yamaha YZF-R15 will deliver stunning R-Series styling and exhilarating sports performance. A highly sporty constant mesh, 6-speed transmission system, with Yamaha own wet sump (Yamalub) lubrication system.

The chassis is a high tensile steel deltabox design, familiar to what we seen with the Yamaha YZF-125 and the Yamaha GP250 bike. The rumor of the Yamaha YZF-R15 tells that this radical, high-revving, fuel-injected 150cc is the work of the same engineers who created our YZF-R1 and YZF-R6 supersport bikes and the YZF-R15 is capable to deliver stunning 150cc performance. 

R15, A 150cc Bike .Yamaha Have a Plans to launch this Bike in India with in 6-8 months from Now. I had a word with Yamaha’s Manager in AutoExpo2008-We will  launch this bike in India within 6-8 months. According to them the Price will be arround 90,000-1,00,000Rs  Thats a good Start by Yamaha,I am sure that This will Kick-up every Bike on Road.Now it is time to grab the maximum fun out of life with the Yamaha YZF-R15. This radical, high-revving, fuel-injected 150 is the work of the same engineers who created our YZF-R1 and YZF-R6 supersport legends and is packed with MotoGP tech. The YZF-R15 is here to deliver stunning R-Series styling and exhilarating sports performance because life is a sport, to be enjoyed to the max. The Yamaha YZF-R15 is smallest member of the R-series, with all aspects this bike including its engine and chassis technology feels like its a racer.

The Yamaha YZF-R15 is equipped with liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, 4-valve, single cylinder, SOHC 149.29cc engine. The engine is a 52mm bore and 58.6mm stroke with a impressive 11.2:1 compression ratio.

Yamaha is using for the Yamaha YZF-R15 the new for all 2008 motorcycles electronic Fuel injection fuel system. And the ignition is don by TCI system.

We can also see changes in the gearbox of the Yamaha YZF-R15, the constant mesh, 6-speed transmission, with wet, multiple-disc coil spring clutch, feels like it want to go, it is clear that here some of the MotoGP technology was used. The final power transmission to the wheel is by good old chain and sprockets.

The chassis of the Yamaha is basic, it would be better if Yamaha did some more improvements on the frame. The complete stability of the steel deltabox frame is quite good and overall road handling is pretty impressive, especially with the improved telescopic fork front suspension and the swingarm – monocross rear suspension system. The front suspension has about 130mm travel and the rear suspension 125mm by Yamaha specifications.

The Yamaha bike has both front and rear a single disc brake, for front Front tyre Yamaha uses a 100/80-17 M/C and for the rear wheel it is a 130/70-17 M/C tyre.
All things said I feel good about this 126.5kg-130kg bike, if you looking for something else then a scooter or light motorcycle I can surely recommend this little blue speed devil.

  1. I am a great fan of Yamie.. owner of Yamaha Libero 106CC bike..
    I have started to love YAMAHA from people’s dream and unbeatable machine: YAMAHA RX100.. Now i will be very much happy to purchase Yamaha 150 cc motor cycle if it is in market.. I love YAMAHA 😉

  2. the cost is very high and u didn’t give the mileage of that. any way middle calss also wants to use that if the cost is between 60-70 thousand then every one can use it. because mainly the moiddle calss families are high in using the bikes rather than the poor one and high class one

  3. yahama is going to launch a very attractive and altimate bike,some feature are unique,but price is too high.All class family will not be able to buy this bike,so contemplate on its price..

  4. yahama is going to launch a very attractive and altimate bike, ‘YAMAHA YF R15’,some feature are unique,but price is too high.All class family will not be able to buy this bike,so contemplate on its price..

  5. I own a pulsar 150. I was seriously thinking to move to Pulsar DTS-FI this month. But when I heard about this Yamaha r15 I choked. Its a deadly machine and the very best in the 150cc segment. If the specs are true it’s worth the every penny we pay. So ready to grab it as soon as it hits the market.

  6. This is a kickass.. I think Yamaha have woken up in India and finally ready to kill the competition. I’m a YAM fan and still loyal to my RX135. I would defnitely like to get a better YAM but unfortunately there is’t a good bike as of now. But this is good news to me and many other YAM fans. Yamaha… keep up the good work and lets see some of thse bikes rolling fast… Don’t mind spending a lil more money that can fetch a NANO… I’m all for it… Waiting……….

  7. Hi tis is melvin .

  12. I have always been a fan of yamaha, I own a yamahan RX135 one of the few last produced (Dec 2002 model). With the announcement of R15 I guess I would sell of my RX135 and get this new biking beauty.

  13. @MICKEY
    I’ll Suggest u to wait till November’08.Donot sell ur bike right now. Because Yamaha is launchin two bikes ,So you will have to decide which one will suityou. R15 or Fazer , Both the bike have great looks. So wait till November.

    COME ON DA……….

  22. hi guys am yam fan nd i would suggest u to take that beast

  23. Dear
    Yamaha Company

    Plz Launched this bike as soon as possible because all are bikers waiting for this bike to be launched in India and we can rush this bike in JABALPUR roads we don’t care about money that how much we have to pay just want

  24. gud look but it is jus 150 cc and costs high(close to 1.1 lac)…….

  25. Jayasankar:it is a very good bike.i like it.

  26. Hey really itz amusing but only 150 cc, but the looks are attractive

  27. wen this bike ll b launched.plz reply to us.

  28. this is a master piece

  29. 2nd to none

  30. hi … i am fan of YAMAHA BIKES mostly RX-series.
    i heard about 150cc sports bike,i really wished 2 buy . Its cost and milege relation is problem . I AM trying to make money to buy it

  31. Yamaha is just stunning, there is no bike that can be compared with this. Other companies have to struggle hard to compete with this. Yamaha R15 is just stunning and too much sexy.

  32. I really want to buy this byk.. i made bookin of pulsar 220 two days back n jus today i came to knw about this byk,

    I loose my bookin money and decided to buy YAMHA R15.

  33. I really want to buy this byk.. i made bookin of pulsar 220 five days back n jus two days back, i came to knw about this byk,
    and finally I decided to buy YAMHA R15.

  34. i saw this bike at the auto expo 08 and i just couldnt differentiate it from the R1. it was amazing such a gr8 design in 150 cc bikes. this is going to be costly for the indian bikers but i consider for some fun u have to spend some bucks. im luking forward for it.

  35. well man, there is too much to say about this byke, but let me cut it short…lets didtinguish fact from fiction

    we are not certain when the byke shall be launched. the showrooms are not open to any booking, so i dont see it arriving in the indian market before 1st week of july.
    and yes, the byke is spectacular.let me list some of the features
    150 CC
    front rear disc brake
    12 litres tank
    bharat stage 4 standard
    liquid cooled engine (Now thats a new one)
    top speed of 145KM/hr
    cruise speed of 135 km/hr
    mileage around 35-40 in city
    BHP: that is yet to be confirmed, expected to be around 20 by the experts.
    front rear solid tyres
    weight: 120 Kg

    The byke is sheer power. the tyres may seem too punk, but MRF designed it especially for this byke. so, i guess it shall be safe even with that speed. thin tyres makes handling easier and the tyres are made of soft rubber, promising a fantastic grip. If you have any queries, u can mail me at subham_eightyfour@yahoo.com

    just keep the rubber side down man…ur life is worth more than speed.


  37. Guys i love yamaha as much as you guys do, however i will wait for another 6 months before i buy one, as there will chnages made to the bike for better looks and performance too, they are planing for a split seat and a short exost too, wait is worth

  38. I love yamaha since i have bought a yamaha gladiator.The bike is really superb in terms of handling,cornering,power and mileage.I love my bike very much and thanks to yamaha motors for making this superb bike


  40. ihave a honda hunk bike i am very abset listen the yamha r15 bike me change the bike and buy the bike

  43. really good unlike other 150 cc bikes r15 rocks

  44. PRICE OF YAMAHA R 15 ON ROAD IS 1,08000.00 @ coimbatore for 17BHP
    engine the cost is much higer

  45. hey,my name is viren chandanshive.I m engg. student.Now i have yamaha rxz but this r15 is dam goodlooking sportsbike.I specially thanks yamaha to launching this bike in INDIA.This bike has very good look as compared to hero honda karisma,pulser220.Its price is too high but its look great.One day i will definatly buy it.I m wating for the launbhing of this bike.

  46. yahama is back now i am wating this moment i am bike lover my first love rx 100 yahama me jo hai kisi me nahi hai aur apne dekha deya

  47. i own a gladiator and it rocks!!!!!! my brothers own rx135 they rock tooo.. now yzfr15!!!!! it kills!!!!! pumps up adrenaline levels!! 1 lac for a 150cc when others are at 50-70k??? yup!!!!! technology matters… no one gives a 17bhp 150cc engine with great looks and a yamaha sticker on the tank is all worth it… YAMAHA ROCKS!!! Stop biking!!! Start Sport Biking!!!! The king is back in business

  48. Hi my name is Sreekanth , i am doing my Research in Aerospace Engineering at IIT Bombay, I own an Yamaha RX 135 5-Speed bike .its almost 5 years old and still the enthusiasm to ride it remains unabated. Yamaha has stood for its motto. “Touching your heart” it certainly has touched mine .The R15 is hot ,i think it has got the prefect looks for a sports bike ,the configuration of the engine seems extremely good .The Top end of 145 km/hr and a cruse speed of 135 km/h seems that it cam breathe fire with a little effort like most Yams in R series . I eagerly await the launch of this YAM.!!

  49. well a 150cc version quite similar to pulsar, cbz, or apache would have been quite competitive on the price level, cos the price tag which yamaha has put is too high, if it was around 60,000+ it would have been a hot cake , since the price is so high n the fuel costs r rising day by day we see the prices of petrol may to 100 per litre, so if thses things r considered, may be it will become a real hot selling bi, what yamahas advantage is their engineeringbefore endng i would just like to say ( business profit ke kiye kiya jata haiayr profit wohi hai jo sabka ho)

  50. Ohhhhhhhhhhh wat a byk. YAMAHA thanx for launching this byk on 25 june.But the price is too high for middile class people so i request u to decrease some price (70-80) then u can grab indian market.In the same way when u defeated BAJAJ’S ELIMINATOR by launching YAMAHA ENTICER then u can grab this indian market so start decreasing ur price. Well to be frank, i culdnt able to book this bike coz of its pricing. No doubt looks r damn gud when complare to others by this only YAMAHA can grab half of te indian market but i think they want to grab complete indian market then they need to decrease der price.


  51. it looks stunnig.am dieing to buy it

  52. i m a fan of yamaha bikes & i want to know that why r15 delay in launching? can you provide me the full specification of r15 with expected price.

  53. cost is high…but the bike is too…………….smart and attractive

  54. My review:

  55. prices is more 90000

  56. prices is very more
    so please lessthan 70000
    its good

  57. i am looking for a option for my pulsar 150 cc and i thing i got it,soon i will make the road crazy with this machine.

  58. Not all praise… but a cool review


  59. the car is awesome.but what will be the price

  60. zaldi launch karo na yaar….

  62. Team,

    I want to know more abount this bkie and looking for this bike. So please contact me As soon as possible….

  63. I own a Pulsar 150cc bike and planning to buy Karizma next month. When I came to know about r15, amazing performance and great looks… It will be mine……. very soon 🙂

  64. it z too costly than the other bikes in group of 150cc…….

  65. Great Bike with great style…
    Price could be the only factor which may create some problem for normal peoples to purchase it.
    Otherwise its damn gud.
    Good Luck R-15

  66. hi am shruti , am mad about yamaha my boyfriend have r1.the r15 is so stylish,so sporty n sexy.ilove yamaha

  67. I love the 2stroke bikes from Yamaha. But when i test rode the Gladiator and Libero, they are the worst bikes i ever rode. It was an insult to Yamaha. An old TVS 50 is enough to beat a Gladiator. But now after checking the pics and the specifications of the R15, i feel that the Rear Tyres are very thin and as the bike is only 120KG, it will not have Road Grip. So i would suggest you to take a Test Ride and not to just go in by looks.

    – M MOTHA

  68. the bike is mind blowing ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh crazy bike but price is very high. veer

  69. i own a gladiator and it rocks!!!!!! my brother own rx135 they rock tooo.. now yzfr15!!!!! it kills!!!!! pumps up adrenaline levels!! 1 lac for a 150cc when others are at 50-70k??? yup!!!!! technology matters… no one gives a 17bhp 150cc engine with great looks and a yamaha sticker on the tank is all worth it… YAMAHA ROCKS!!!

  112. hi iam nijin, price is very high so pls upgrade to 250cc i will buy, 250cc = price very good……..

  113. its not work in kerala with this price iam sure…. bcoz pulsar 220 already in the roadwith reasonable price and they will launch another 250cc + yamaha specificatns + reasonable price i think,, so i wiil wait for pulsar250cc + sportylook and if not i buy 220cc pulsar and i model it look like sporty like yamaa r15 …ITS VERY EASY TO DOIN KERALA KOIMBATORE (REMODELLING )

  114. yahama R15 is costly to purchase. But I liked the bike, it is really well designed. Tis amazing sporty look differentiates it from other bikes like Pulsar or Karizma. So if u can reduce its price, surely all guys will go for this one, or upgrade it to the 220cc machine.
