The latest incarnation of the YZF-R15 - also known as the Version 2.0 - has undergone an extensive revamp.
The liquid cooled, fuel injected four-stroke has been transformed by a restyle to move it closer to its ‘R’ series family.
With the ability to cruise at 120kmh plus and return an average fuel consumption of around 45kms per litre, the R15 blends performance, reliability and low running costs. It is designed to appeal to riders looking for a practical motorcycle for every day riding that sports R-series trademark sharp looks.
Tech heads are well catered for with a 150cc liquid cooled and fuel injected engine slotting into a Deltabox chassis boasting linked monocross suspension. R15 bristles with state-of-the-art technology also seen on the world’s best supersport bikes, such as a forged aluminium piston running in an all aluminium DiASil cylinder which offers the benefits of light weight, great heat dissipation, less oil consumption and high levels of wear resistance.
- Fuel injected four-valve 150cc liquid cooled engine runs a forged piston and aluminium cylinder like its ‘R’ series brothers
- YZF-R15 sports image is carried though to the cockpit where R-style analogue tacho, digital speedo, trip and fuel gauge inform the rider
- R-series style Deltabox frame forms the basis for riding comfort and performance. The synergy created by optimising longitudinal, lateral, and torsional rigidity delivers a solid riding feel as well as agile riding performance.
