The R15 V4 comes in 3 colours racing blue, dark knight, and metallic red. The
R15M will be available in Metallic Grey colour, additionally the R15M Monster
Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition has also been launched with MotoGP branding on the
fairing, fuel tank, front mud guard and rear side panels, outlining Yamaha’s
strong Racing DNA.
2021 YZF-R15 range adopts predominantly horizontal design lines like the
YZF-R1, inheriting the DNA of Yamaha’s R-Series. As a result, the model looks
sporty, while conveying a visual sense of stability in motion. To give it an
imposing aura, the new YZF-R15 uses a single bi-functional Class-D LED
headlight that also emphasizes the presence of the M-shaped intake duct.
new YZF-R15 employs an upside down front fork with 37mm inner tubes, wherein
the lower end (unsprung) is light, and the upper end (sprung) has thick outer
tubes bolted to the chassis for higher rigidity. This new structure offers more
stability under braking, with improved comfort and cornering performance. To
accommodate the new front suspension, the upper triple clamp (handlebar crown)
has been newly designed, with the rib shapes contributing to the
strength–rigidity balance, similar to the M1.
new YZF-R15 model is also the first small-displacement Yamaha motorcycle with
manual transmission to feature Traction Control System, which controls the
ignition timing and fuel injection volume to instantly adjust engine power
output to avoid excessive slippage. It is also the first Yamaha single-cylinder
motorcycle to feature a quick-shifter (standard on the YZF-R15V4 Racing Blue
and YZF-R15M), for smooth, clutchless, upshifts. It activates when speed is at or over 20
km/h, the engine rpm is at or over 2,000rpm, and accelerating.
2021 YZF-R15 range is powered by a 155cc, 4-stroke, liquid-cooled, SOHC,
4-valve engine that produces maximum power of 18.4 PS at 10,000rpm, with a
torque output of 14.2 Nm at 7,500rpm. The fuel-injected motor with Variable
Valve Actuation (VVA) is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
