No change in price.
The 2016 Yamaha R15 has been launched in Indonesia at IDR 29.8 million (INR 1.51 lakhs) OTR Jakarta. The 2016 R15 can be differentiated from the previous model only by its colour options and body graphics.
The 2016 Yamaha R15 is offered in three colour themes – Blue Race, Supernova White and Speed Grey. The first option is designed similar to the Yamaha R25 while the other two bear different decals and colours. The Blue Race gets blue alloy wheels and silver fairing like the R25, while the other two sport black alloy wheels.
The new R15 has no mechanical change. It is powered by a 149 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled SOHC Fuel Injected engine that develops 16.5 PS at 8,500 rpm and 14.5 Nm at 7,500 rpm, that is mated to a six-speed gearbox.
The motorcycle features a standard telescopic fork, link-type monocross rear suspension, disc brakes at the front and rear, 90/80-17 tyre upfront and 130/70-R17 tyre at the rear.
