The fascia gets a YZF-R1 inspired look while retaining the original headlight setup of the YZF-R15 V3.0. Thus, projector lights accompany the dual LED headlights from the factory. The windscreen gets a tinted finish while the graphics under the wind deflector create an illusion of extending the unit lower towards the air-scoop. The stock front blinkers have been traded for modern looking LED units that sit relatively flush with the fairing.

Stock handlebars perform steering duties, but the pair of MotoGP style lever protectors add a sporty touch to the package. The lever protectors aren’t the only MotoGP inspired hardware on the modified motorcycle. The YZF-R15 also gets winglets that are placed next to the headlight. They are visual elements that are aimed at adding an aggressive look to the bike.

A pair of frame sliders are installed to protect the bodywork if something were to go wrong. The sides also reveal the aftermarket SC-Project exhaust that the YZF-R15 V3.0 gets to enhance its aural presence. The motorcycle is packed with PowerTRONIC, and the free flow exhaust is part of the performance enhancement package. At the rear, the fender has been completely removed for a cleaner look while the motorcycle is fitted with custom blinkers that sit next to the tail light.

LED lighting illuminates the engine, and the red colour adds a neat contrast to the yellow paint of the motorcycle. The motor, as mentioned, has received a performance bump with PowerTRONIC ECU but the exact numbers are not available. For reference, the standard motorcycle draws 19.3 hp at 10,000 rpm and 14.7 Nm of torque at 8,500 rpm from its 155 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. The engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox and features Variable Valves Actuation (VVA).

The motorcycle rides on a wider profile rear tyre that enhances its sporty look and gives the YZF-R15 a bigger bike persona. Being an Indonesia spec model, the upside-down telescopic forks at the front are standard fitment. The India-spec model gets conventional forks. Both models feature a monoshock unit at the rear.
