2014 Yamaha YZF-R15 Officially Unveiled in Indonesia – the R series for the mass – Rp 28 million (RM7,890)Friday, April 25th, 2014
Our neighbouring country, Indonesia, will be getting the Yamaha YZF-R15 on 23rd April which is just few days away. YZF-R15 has been talked about for a very long time in Asean especially in Malaysia and Indonesia due to the resemblances of the engine and chassis, but differs in the fairing type of the Yamaha FZ150i or the Vixion in Indonesia. Many riders of FZ150i in Malaysia and Vixion riders in Indonesia are asking why the YZF-R15 are not marketed here since the engine and chassis are the same which should be no problem in terms of maintenance and parts availability. This dream has come true to Indonesian riders as they are getting the YZF-R15 soon, but not yet to Malaysian riders. Arrghhh!!! Yeah, I feel you.
YZF-R15 has been released earlier in India and known as the R15 Version 2.0, which means that this bike is already on its 2nd version in production. The Indian have included the sariguard (the rear tyre cover to prevent womens’ sari stuck to the rear tyre) but this one in Indonesia doesn’t include that item.
YZF-R15 is the popular Yamaha model in India and for 2013 it came with new livery that suits the ‘R’ DNA. There are 2 colours to choose that is blue and red. (more…)
GTMax has updated their FB page with this picture of a YZF-R15. Usually they post the lineup of the bike that they are selling. Based on the comment I have read on the page, the price for this bike is said to be at RM14,000. Not sure whether it is true or not. If it is true, then we have more choice for 150cc bike other than its similar sibling in naked style, the FZ-150i from Yamaha. BTW, this R15 is 6-speed yo.
Yamaha ever popular YZF-R15 wins the 1st prestigious award in India Design Mark Award. This proves that the design of the YZF-R15 works. It works because it got great looks and the full fairing design gets the aerodynamic optimised.
One more reason to get this to our shore. Please somebody at HLYM, bring this bike!
