Despite being a 155 cc offering, the Yamaha R15 V4 remains one of the best entry-level performance motorcycles out there. The latest upgrade only made it a far better offering than before. The V4 iteration has brought the YZF-R7 inspired design language with the aggressive new front styling. There’s also the segment-first list of features like traction control, quickshifter on the R15M, assist and slipper clutch and the standard dual-channel ABS. The bike has also been upgraded to USD front forks from the telescopic units.

Power continues to come from the same 155 cc, liquid-cooled engine with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA). Power figures though have gone marginally down over the V3 with the motor developing 18.1 bhp at 10,000 rpm and 14.2 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm. It’s paired with a six-speed gearbox. The more expensive R15M further brings a visual boost to the motorcycle with golden brake callipers, anodised blue fork caps, carbon-like seat cover material and embossed logo on the pillion seat. The Yamaha R15 V4 competes against the KTM RC 200 in the segment.
