Upside Down Front Forks
To take the sporty handling on twisty roads to the next level, the Yamaha R15 V4 employs an upside down front suspension fork with 37 mm inner tubes. The upside down front forks improve rigidity and provide stability while taking high speed turns or during high braking input.
Dual Channel ABS
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 even when the bike is speeding up, without any wheel lock-ups. This ensures a confident inspiring ride and let the rider enjoy the ride to the fullest.
Super Wide 140 mm Radial Rear Tyre 140/70R17M/C 66H radial tyre has been adopted at the rear with flexible side walls for better grip while cornering and superior shock absorbing capacity to ensure a more comfortable ride.
Side Stand Engine Cut-Off Switch With the in-built side stand engine cut-off switch, you do not forget to remove the side stand during those immediate rides.
155 cc LC4V SOHC FI Engine with VVA
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. What’s more the engine is equipped with a Traction Control System and a Quick Shifter* (up-shift) too!
*(Standard for Racing Blue color)
Assist & Slipper Clutch
An A&S (assist and slipper) clutch is adopted to reduce the weight of the clutch pull and provide low-stress shifting during deceleration. The A&S helps to reduce fatigue for the rider. This also prevents excessive engine braking, thus reducing its effects on chassis behavior. The A&S clutch makes for smooth, enjoyable downshifts.
Variable Valves Actuation (VVA)
This is a one-of-a-kind 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 7,400 rpm mark to ensure good power and torque is present throughout the entire rev range.
Traction Control System
The Yamaha R15 V4 comes with Traction Control System. This is a dedicated electronic system that has the remarkable ability of reducing the chances of a wheelspin (slippage due to loss of traction)
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.
*Standard for Racing Blue color
*Optional in other colors at an additional cost
CLASS D BI-FUNCTIONAL HEADLIGHT UNIT
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.
LED POSITION LIGHTS
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.
AERODYNAMIC BODY DESIGN
With better airflow management the rider can reach the top speed faster and is also helpful in the high speed stability of the machine.

• CALL ALERT
Alerts you of any incoming or missed calls
•SMS & EMAIL
Get notified every time you receive a message or email on your phone
•APP CONNECTIVITY STATUS
Informs you of the bike’s connectivity with the Y-Connect app on your phone.
•PHONE BATTERY LEVEL STATUS
Displays the smartphone’s battery level
Fuel Consumption Tracker – This feature helps you track your daily and monthly fuel consumption.
Maintenance Recommendations – This app consolidates and analyses the bike data and sends you recommendations. For example, it keeps tabs on battery status and indicates either with a “Good” or “Check” notification.
Last Parking Location – The last parking feature of the app gives you information about where you last parked your bike*.
*If the machine has been moved since it was parked, it cannot be tracked via this function.
Malfunction Notification – Should the machine suffer a breakdown or malfunction, the app indicates so on the smartphone. It can also be verified on the phone as part of the bike’s records.
Revs Dashboard – The smartphone screen can also function as the Revs Dashboard, that displays data that is not available on the bike’s instrument cluster, such as Engine RPM, Degree Of Throttle Opening, Rate Of Acceleration, Eco-friendly Riding Indicator and Real-time Fuel Consumption.
Ranking – This app connects with other Yamaha riders app and maintains a ranking of the riders in terms of distance travelled and how eco-friendly their riding has been.
The all new R15 V4 is the 4th generation of legendry R15 which shares the same DNA with super sports YZF R1. Yamaha R15 V4 comes with 155 CC LC4V SOHC FI ENGINE WITH VVA equipped with a Traction Control System and a Quick Shifter

Addition to this, it has the features such as:
In the bustling cities, a good horn can make the difference between being seen and noticed. Let the city hear you ride your way into the future. R15 V4 has got that covered too. With new split horns delivering higher decibels and lower decibels (Dual Tone), here’s a racer that truly sounds like one.
The aluminum swingarm give you the advantage of significant reduction in unsprung weight which makes the bike easier to handle.
It is available in three colours i.e. Metallic Red, Dark Knight, Racing Blue. Dimensional measurement induces 1990mm of length, width 725mm, height 1135mm, seat height 815mm, ground clearance 170mm and wheelbase of 1325mm which brings every comfort to the rider.
