New Yamaha YZF-R15 V4.0: Review Image Gallery

The new Yamaha YZF-R15 V4.0 is here to rival KTM RC200 and the RC125 in the Indian market. The bike received major styling and function overhauls during the most recent update, making version 4.0 one of the most sought-after products in its segment. We recently tested the bike for a detailed test review and you can read all about it here. In this article, we bring you the best images from our test review down the road.

For starters, the new YZF-R15 V4.0 draws styling cues from its bigger brother, the RZF-R7. For example, the bike features a single-pod projector headlamp with an M-duct design and dual LED daytime running lights at the front, a sharp fairing, a muscular fuel tank and split-style seats.

Aside from styling upgrades, Yamaha has addressed the quality issues of V3.0 and significantly improved the new YZF-R15 V4.0. The panels fit tightly and the wiring is neatly concealed. Also the plastic and the quality of the switchgear look and feel premium.

The bike has revised ergonomics achieved through wider and lower handlebars and higher footpegs. This makes the rider triangle even more committed than before.

There are no major changes to the BS6 compliant 155cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled engine. Mated to a six-speed gearbox, the YZF-R15 V4.0 engine delivers 18.1 hp and 14.2 Nm, which is a negligible drop compared to the V3.0. Certain variants get a quickshifter as standard, while the same is available as an accessory for others.

Yamaha YZF R15 V4 Front Suspension

The V4.0 also retains the proven Delabox frame, although it now gets an updated suspension. This model uses an upside-down front fork instead of the conventional telescopic units of its predecessor. The rear continues to use a preset monoshock.

Yamaha YZF R15 V4 Rear Disc Brake

Braking duties are handled by a single 282mm disc in the front and a single 220mm rotor in the rear. The safety package has undergone a major overhaul and the YZF-R15 V4.0 comes standard with a traction control system. The dual-channel ABS has been retained from its predecessor.

Yamaha YZF R15 V4 Instrument Cluster

The cockpit has a fully digital instrument panel, but version 4.0 benefits from Bluetooth connectivity. The display provides information about calls, SMS and e-mail alerts and the battery level of the phone.
