The Yamaha R15 the most expected bike of the year, just did not make up to the mark. With a not very high 18bhp the sexy bike made it on comfort and performance but went a bit low on power.
With a low 150cc specially designed for the Indian road condition, it was expected with lot more power priced at a lack and a ten thousand INR. The price is also felt to be very high when compared to the other bikes in its class of 150cc, almost half the price : Pulsar, Apache, Unicorn and CBZ are all priced under Rs.65, 000.
This is my personal experience on Yamaha R15, a replica of the R1 but with different engine and basic design. The liquid cooled engine seems to make out well and contributes to the sexy look of it. No one can resist the look of the Black Beast the R15.
