Yamaha R15 V4 Price, Millage, Colour & Review
Yamaha R15 V4.0: In September of last year, Yamaha Motors India launched the fourth iteration of the popular R15 motorcycle. One of the design innovations featured in the R15 V4.0’s lineup was the employment of a single bi-functional Class-D LED headlight that highlighted the existence of an M-shaped intake duct. The R15 V4.0 employed a horizontal design like the YZF-R1, in contrast to other supersport bike models that primarily use the forward slated design lines, carrying over the DNA of Yamaha’s R series.
The R15 V4 may be a choice you should take into consideration if you’ve been searching to purchase a motorcycle with a blend of a sports bike, feel, and functionality. We’ve streamlined the R15 V4’s range for you below.
Colour and Price
The R15 V4 range goes up to Rs 1.81 lakh for the Racing Blue paint version, starting at Rs 1.76 lakh for the Metallic Red colour option. The bike in the Dark Knight colouring choice is priced at Rs. 1.77 lakh. All listed prices are ex-showroom in Delhi.
Suspension and Engine
The R15 V4’s 155 cc, 4-stroke, liquid-cooled, 4-valve engine is set to produce 14.2 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm and 18.4 PS of output at 10,000 rpm. The fuel-injected engine features Variable Valve Actuation (VVA), and it is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The front fork of the bike is mounted upside-down, with the upper end (sprung) having thick outer tubes bolted to the chassis for increased rigidity, and the lower end (unsprung) having light 37mm inner tubes. The new technology gives the R15 V4 greater braking stability, enhanced comfort, and improved turning performance.
Yamaha R15 V4 Features
The R15 V4 is the first manual-transmission small-displacement Yamaha motorbike to include traction control. To rapidly alter the engine power output and prevent excessive slippage, the system regulates the fuel injection volume and ignition timing. Additionally, it is the first Yamaha single-cylinder motorbike to be equipped with a fast shifter allowing effortless, clutchless upshifts. When the bike is moving at a speed of over 20 km/h and the engine is revving to at least 2,000 rpm, it is triggered. Yamaha Motorcycle Connect Bluetooth connectivity, a new LCD instrument cluster inspired by the YZF R1 with gear shift indicator and track, and Street Mode are some of the bike’s other standout features. The trip/info button on the bike allows you to choose between the several display modes and the information that is displayed.
