Yamaha launched an all-new R15M in the Nepalese market. MAW Enterprises, the official importer and distributor of Yamaha bikes finally revealed its much-anticipated bike.
Talking of cost, R15M price in Nepal is set at Rs. 5,99,900.
R15 has been one of the most successful and popular series from the Japanese manufacturer. Moreover, Yamaha Nepal brought its brand new model, putting a stop to months of waiting and rumors.
With that said, let's look at the latest Yamaha R15M along with its features and specifications.
Yamaha R15M Overview
Yamaha R15M is another variant of the R15 V4. Furthermore, it claims to take the racing quotient to next level with new design elements, graphics, and unique features.
The design of R15M is inspired by the new Yamaha R7, which made its global premiere in May of this year. The greatest change is that the 155 cc models are now in accordance with the brand's R-DNA.
Notable changes include a new single bifunctional Class-D LED headlamp with DRLs on both sides. The new 3D Logo on the fuel tank gives a high-end look to the bike.
Similarly, the anodized blue fork caps, bodywork, and carbon-like seat cover are other new design elements.
It now has a highly aerodynamic fairing, making it the sportiest track racing bike on the market. Furthermore, the R15M is available in a single color scheme: Metallic Grey.
The 155cc liquid-cooled FI engine powers Yamaha R15M which produces 18.4PS of max power and 14.2Nm torque. When compared to the V3.0, power is slightly lower but torque has increased by 0.1 Nm.

This racing bike is lightweight and weighs only under 142 kg. Moreover, the R15M has an 11-litre fuel tank and a claimed mileage of 40 kilometres per litre.
Because the seat height is just 815mm, it will be acceptable for riders even with small heights. Similarly, the motorcycle comes with 170mm of ground clearance.
The Yamaha R15M stands on a delta box frame and has brand-new Golden Upside-down (USD) front forks. As for the rear suspension, it comes with the same preload-adjustable Mono shock.
The brakes are handled by a 282mm front disc with a twin-piston caliper and a 220mm rear disc with a single-piston caliper. Dual-channel ABS is standard for further safety.
