Yamaha R15 India
Tsutomu Mabuchi about the Yamaha R15: “This particular bike looks very racy but actually a very mediocre person can also drive this bike as you have probably seen today”
Yamaha YZF R15 is the best looking bike in India. Overall, the DNA is taken from the global Yamah YZF R1 series and looks is reflected in the female. Front portion of the bike is fully covered while the rear portion remained naked. No doubt, cosmetic treatment is fabulous. The worth looking feature in the bike is the front protective covering. The cowl looks stylish with two eyes like twin headlamps. So as the windscreen at the top of the cowl. At the both end of the windscreen, there is rear view mirrors in black. Let's see the large airscoops that is a beauty to see. Nice long shape and sparking body colour really impress in the first look. Due to lack of space between tyre and front cowl, the number plate is fitted at the upper side of the cowl.

It may become the fashion statement in the bike enthusiasts in the country. The air scoops possess the new bike name sticker. Front turn indicators are placed at airscoops as against the other bike having it below the cowl. Behind the cowl, a digital console comes with speedometer, techometer, tripmeter and fuel gauge. Side indicator, neutral high and low beam indication is also shown in the dashboard. Techometer looks crazy in dial shape. Other meters are in flat screen.

A large fuel tank is designed to provide enough space for rider and contribute to the looks of the machine. Only engine's exterior part is visible from side view. Other parts are covered in front fairing. In this stylish machine, enough space for seating is left. But pillion rider has to make space for him to sit comfortably. Nice rear grab bars are fitted at the top of the rear portion. The horn like grab rails is body coloured. Tail has nothing new. Only the size of the tail lamp is increased which is not the case in Yamaha FZ-S, Yamaha FZ-16 and Yamaha Fazer. Rear portion looks stunning with five spoke alloy wheels and nice shaped muffler. The muffler is also painted black while the rear end is in white. Both disc brakes at the tyres not only ensure good braking but also looking.
