YES dudes........ The wait is over. For all of us INDIANS who could only dream of a machine called the YAMAHA YZF R1, here is the good news. YAMAHA has created a look alike of the big DADDY. The kid is named the YAMAHA YZF R15.. It's a very affordable piece of art.(I'm just guessin from the fact that it's a 150 cc.). Yamaha has adopted a six speed transmission for the baby. Another first of a kind for bikes in INDIA is the liquid cooled engine. There are many new features in R15 when compared to already available bikes in India.

YZF R15 makes use of DiASil (Die-casting Aluminum-Silicon) cylinder. The DiASil Cylinder is an all-aluminum cylinder made possible by an exclusive Yamaha aluminum forging technology. DiASil cylinder uses 20% silicon aluminum alloy, it is possible to create a cylinder wall that is so hard and durable that it eliminates the need for a conventional steel cylinder sleeve. And, because the cylinder is all aluminum, it has excellent heat dissipation qualities (cooling capacity is improved by 60% and reduces engine weight (by 30%) at the same time.

YZF R15 makes use of forged piston (India’s first) which enables lighter piston design and excellent power development.

YZF R15’s 4-valve combustion chamber adopts centrally mounted spark plug and six hole type injector which leads to path breaking performance.YZF R15 has delta box frame.

It’s overall length is 1070mm, overall width is 670mm and its wheels base is 1290mm. YZF R15 150cc features F 80/90 -17 inches tyres in the front and 100/80-17 inches tyres in the rear. Both the tyres are tubeless.

THE NEW ONE IS EXPECTED ON 12th of this month.
