Born from Yamaha’s racing DNA, the new learner approved YZF-R15M takes race inspiration to the next level thanks to a punchy 155cc VVA engine equipped with traction control, A&S clutch, a quick shifter, smartphone connectivity and stunning new WGP and R1M inspired graphics.


155cc LC4V SOHC FI Engine

155cc LC4V SOHC FI Engine

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.

Variable Valve Actuation

Variable Valve Actuation

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.

Dual channel ABS

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 and restricted wheel lockups even at high speed. This ensures a confident, inspiring ride.

Traction Control System

Traction Control System

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.

Upside Down Front Forks

Upside Down Front Forks

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.

Aerodynamic bodywork

Aerodynamic bodywork

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.

Quick Shifter

Quick Shifter

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.

Y-Connect App

Y-Connect App
