review of yamaha r15

Yamaha Motors India has had a long and illustrious connection with the performance motorcycling scene in the country. From the Legendary RD350 to the RX100 and its subsequent 2Stroke Iterations, were the go-to motorcycles of choice for anyone seeking to light up the streets. The dawn of the 4-Strokes ushered in a relatively quiet period for the marque with that distinctive Tuning Forks Logo. While other manufacturers took on the performance motorcycling mantle and made it their own, Yamaha Motors India appeared to have had lost the plot a bit, or so it seemed.

In 2008, the sleeping giant woke up with all cylinders firing and announced the launch of the R15 – the legend was re-born! With a single master-stroke, Yamaha Motors India had managed to recover its former glory. The first gen R15 or V1 as it is now called, featured a liquid cooled, free-revving, 150cc motor that was paired off with a chassis that allowed the rider to literally dance around the track. With quality parts all round and a styling package that were a tribute to the bigger R6/R1 cousins, the sales charts simply took off.

As the quarters rolled by, the bike became the darling of corner carvers all across the country. With time, the existing 150cc mill began to feel a wee bit inadequate and unable to do justice to the capable chassis that the R15 came shod with. Aftermarket tuners began to offer several performance mods, ranging from exhaust upgrades to big-bore packages featuring custom engine maps and the works. Yamaha Motors India themselves offered upgrade kits through their dealers. The existing package however, had its limitations, particularly when it came to the compact dimensions & the inadequate looking tires.
