New Yamaha R15 has all the characteristics of motorcycles which designed by Yamaha to represent the R series which reflects the philosophy running through these models — expressing performance visually. For example, YZF-R6 shows a strong body line that springs up in a single line from the rear axle to the pivot and then to the head pipe. This is a visual expression of the straight shape of the Deltabox frame. These elements are a visual expression of “frame rigidity.” Viewed from the side, the shape of New Yamaha R15 created by the side panel and the upper surface of the tank creates an impression of the center of gravity shifting to the front tire. This is a visual representation of how the front tire grips the road in its sporty running performance. Needless to say, YZF-R1, with its athletic build, is also a visual expression of performance. A characteristic of the R series is that, when you view the machine, you get a sense of its concept and performance. This philosophy has been fully transmitted to New R15.

Looking great. I have always liked the r15 but given the choice between the r125 and r15 I would go for the r125......UNTIL NOW. Looks like most of their inspiration has come from the r125.
The tank could have been a little bigger though.
This is some exciting stuff. A lot of hype was created initially when the R15 was due for the launch in country and with this facelift, it’s going to attract the buyers and more so the enthusiasts, a lot more. I find the colour scheme to be better and eye catching than the existing ones.
