Assume again to your earliest motorcycling reminiscences. Should you’re something like me – and from what I’ve learnt through the years I feel that you simply in all probability are – then these reminiscences will contain a small-capacity bike, a quiet highway that shall be within the suburbs or countryside, an entire lack of a licence and a worryingly fundamental understanding of the legal guidelines of physics. Ditto for the highway guidelines and motorcycling security. In my particular case, there was myself, a Honda CT110, a t-shirt, shorts and a pair of thongs (aka “flip-flops”), a quiet New South Wales nation highway and never a helmet in sight.

What adopted subsequent was a half dozen prime pace passes on the Honda that weren’t solely completely unlawful, in addition they bought me shouted at and grounded. It was life-changingly enjoyable and – greater than most different moments in my childhood – made me the person who I’m immediately. Positive, BMX bikes had been nice and all, however this shit was subsequent stage. The bike’s prime pace felt like 100 mph (it wasn’t) and the adrenalin! Certainly this was what life should be all about; this and the alternative intercourse.

Quickly I might determine that there have been higher, extra highly effective and far cooler bikes to trip and that you simply really wanted abilities and years of observe to do virtually every part else on a motorcycle however go quick on them.

Foolishly, I assumed that the times of me using tiny, single-cylinder bikes had been gone and forgotten. However then this occurred. The Yamaha YZF-R15M occurred. And out of the blue my now a lot bigger, a lot older arse is as soon as once more on a teenie tiny little bike. So will my rose-coloured reminiscences be shattered, or is there one thing actually fantastic about going again to your roots?

So learn on expensive viewers members as I put Yamaha’s Indian-made 2023 R15M via its paces on a few of Australia’s greatest public roads to see precisely what you’d be in for when you determined to splash a few of your hard-earned on a sportsbike with a displacement lower than half of even probably the most miserly of beer cans. Cheers!

Options of the 2023 Yamaha YZF-R15M

“However is it actually a sportsbike?” I hear you yell from a budget seats. Effectively, it’s in response to Yamaha. Featured in lots of a press shot in the identical line-up as their topper-than-top shelf YZF-R1M, it’s the yang to the aforementioned beast’s ying, sans the brain-melting energy, NASA electronics and carbon fibre. Positive, you might have six R15Ms for the value of 1 R1M (and the mixed whole horsepowers of these six R15Ms would nonetheless solely equal about half of the R1’s 200 hp), however what precisely are and aren’t you getting? Let’s discover out.


Whereas there’s not that a lot to write down house about regarding the engine itself, the 155cc single-cylinder energy plant does have one nifty little trick up its sleeve. Certainly, it’s in all probability the trick that almost all Yamaha gross sales people shall be repeating advert nauseam on the world’s showroom flooring. The engine is supplied with Variable Valve Actuation, or “VVA” as Yamaha calls it, that means that it has two camshaft profiles. Switching between the high and low profiles at round 7400 rpm, Yamaha tells us it’s to offer “good energy and torque is current all through all the rev vary.” However does it kick in? Extra on that quickly.

In a listing of goodies that shocked me, hopefully as a lot as they are going to shock you, the bike’s VVA is complemented with a fast shifter, traction management, slipper clutch, twin channel ABS and the flexibility to hook up with the bike by way of your Smartphone. Clearly a results of “trickle-down” expertise that’s been paid for by greater brother YZF fashions, it will seem that after this tech’s excellent R&D prices have been coated off by gross sales of dearer bikes, the boffins at Yamaha are very happy to share the like to the fashions additional down the meals chain.


And that’s not all, people. Yamaha have even gone as far to grace us with upside-down forks, too. And branded ones at that. Made by a Yamaha subsidiary, KYB. With 37mm interior tubes, I discovered them surprisingly succesful gadgets that proved to be a lot stiffer and extra secure than I used to be in all probability anticipating from a motorcycle at this value level. In addition they look the half, too. Comply with them down from their golden components in direction of the bottom and also you’ll possible stumble upon their good good friend, the dual pot, single disc Bybre (aka price range Brembos) brakes that’ll be doing a lot of the bike’s woah-ing duties.

Turning to the Yamaha spec sheet, the engine’s a 155cc liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, 4-valve jobby that Yamaha calls the “LC4V” working 11.6:0 compression ratio via a relentless mesh 6-speed field. Energy figures are 18.4 hp and 10.5 lb-ft of torque. The 11 ltr (2.9 gal) tank sits atop a 140 kg (308 lb) moist weight bike that may raise you 815 mm (32 inches) off the bottom when you’re seated. The rubber boots are MRF Revz-S – a tyre I’m not conversant in; there’s a 100/80R17 up entrance and a 140/70R17 on the again.

Preliminary Impressions of the 2023 Yamaha YZF-R15M

At first sight I’ve to say that the bike isn’t as small as it might look on paper, or in your head while you hear the phrases “150cc engine” for that matter. As I kind these phrases, I’m capable of flip my head and take a look at each the Yamaha and my very own BMW RnineT sitting side-by-side in my storage and so far as top, width and size go, the R15M isn’t a small bike. Nor ought to bigger riders be overly apprehensive about wanting like a circus bear using a comically small bicycle on it. Sure, heavier riders might wish to think about different choices in the event that they want to buy a snug each day rider, however on face worth, it’s not a silly-looking possibility.

The Pace of Lightness

Now, don’t make the error of pondering {that a} bike that appears as massive as a 210 kg BMW can also be as heavy as one. Inside seconds of sitting on the Yammie you’ll realise that you simply’ve in all probability had restaurant meals that weighed greater than this bike. At 140 kg dripping moist, it’s an excellent gentle bike you possibly can toss round like a hurricane tosses consuming straws. Mere nanoseconds are spent eradicating the bike from its parking area and taking off; close to the top of my time on it I used to be reversing it out of my storage, turning it on, elevating the aspect stand and checking for visitors on my avenue multi functional fell swoop.

The sprint is fundamental however it does the trick. Picture by way of Yamaha MC.

The sprint could be very a lot on par with what I’d count on from a motorcycle on this value bracket. LCD show? Test. Backlit, colored surrounding lights for indicators and warnings? Test. However what did defy expectations was the shift lights sitting above the whole thing. Good. I made a psychological word to check them out later (also referred to as “smashing the bike up via the gears with the throttle pinned”) and turned my consideration elsewhere.

Naked Grilles

If there’s one factor Yamaha have made positive of on the R-series bikes is that all of them use the same “design language” in order that most birds-of-a-feather factors are scored. And by the seems of the R15M and its “acoustic grilles” sitting proudly on the prime entrance of the tank, their designers have additionally spent a while liberally peppering the R1 and MT-10 SP design cues on right here as properly. Whereas I’d put cash on the truth that they’re for seems solely on this utility, the truth that there’s so many bikes in Yamaha’s R-series line-up and that they took the effort and time to match all of them up bodes properly for the bike’s design chops.

And returning briefly to the entire “measurement of the rider” matter, I discovered that the non-adjustable sprint was geared toward my chest slightly than at my eyes. This induced no points, thoughts you; I’m not tremendous tall, so I put it all the way down to Yamaha tailoring the bike’s ergonomics to a extra “sporty” using place that I used to be keen to imagine after I wasn’t using it a ten tenths.

It has grilles just like the MT-10 and R1. However do they do something right here? Picture by way of Machines That Dream.

The bike’s “face” is greater than somewhat just like that of its older, extra muscular R siblings. And whereas I didn’t see them in a police line-up, I do know from reminiscence that the R7 parallel twin is sort of equivalent. The truth that all of the road-illuminating duties are completed by the cyclops-esque central headlight did have me questioning if it will be as much as the job, however after seeing what trendy projector headlights are able to, I’d counsel that it’d have issues coated after which some.

All up, the bike doesn’t disappoint within the flesh. And whereas it’s most undoubtedly svelte, it’s not bodily small and it undoubtedly doesn’t look cheaply made or – worse nonetheless – prefer it’s really a scooter in disguise. Good work on that entrance, Yamaha.

Driving The 2023 Yamaha YZF-R15M

Driving within the Metropolis

My first time kicking the little engine over left me pondering that perhaps I had been too beneficiant in my appraisal of the bikes seems; to name it gentle would perhaps be doing it a disservice, however I used to be left feeling that the bike’s look and measurement was perhaps writing cheques that it’s energy plant couldn’t money. Fortunately, I used to be flawed right here however I’d nonetheless just like the engine’s acoustics to be somewhat extra aggressive. If my concern of the bike being scooter-like had been quelled by its physique, I feel the soundtrack of the 155cc single might have reignited it considerably.

However the Sydney morning air was calling and so off I went to the town’s south the place I’d see simply how properly or unwell the bike dealt with the inimitable Royal Nationwide Park trip. Up via the gears I went as I rode down my avenue. Having as soon as been a religious member of the Church of the Sportsbike however then managing to kick the behavior, a few of the previous reminiscences started flooding again. The load on the wrists. The excessive pegs. The fairing that doesn’t flip with the bars. The tiny windscreen. Mirrors that present nothing however your individual rattling elbows. It’d be straightforward for me to dismiss the entire sportsbike factor as a method of the previous that’s been left behind for a very good motive, however who am I to dismiss a rider’s needs and desires – particularly in the event that they aren’t sort of previous and decrepit like I’m?

It undoubtedly doesn’t appear to be a small bike. Picture by way of Machines That Dream.

No, the R15M isn’t as ridiculous in its using place as many greater, extra targeted bikes however it was sufficient to offer me sore palms and wrists after a number of hours within the saddle. Relying in your measurement, weight and age this will likely swimsuit you positive. Or you could develop uninterested in it, as I did after it slowly dawns on you that these days you possibly can have each a sporty, handsome bike that’s additionally all-day snug. The selection is yours.

Settling into the trip, every part on the bike was as much as Yamaha’s standard requirements. Switchgear was good and I took somewhat time to fiddle with the bike’s lone sprint Data swap. Stunned to see it on the throttle-side of the controls, I quickly realised that the performance was in all probability extra “set and overlook” targeted than offering performance that could be higher positioned on the left – as in one thing that you simply’d eager to be utilizing whereas additionally accelerating or holding a relentless pace. Because it stands, I used to be fairly pleased to simply muck round with it on the lights and depart or not it’s for the remainder of the time.

The brakes weren’t excellent by any means, however as they’re single-disc gadgets and so they gained’t be required to cease something too heavy from too excessive a pace, I felt them to be fairly OK for the duty at hand. Sure, you could be tempted so as to add somewhat rear brake into the combo extra typically than you’d on an R1 or MT-10, however that’s as a result of the brakes they’re outfitted with are designed for excellent behaviour at near-lightspeed working situations.

Poke me within the ribs a number of occasions to call one thing that I feel may very well be improved and I’d in all probability nominate the R15’s gear selector. Whereas I assumed the bike’s ‘field was suitably slick and succesful, the considerably delicate really feel I used to be getting via the foot lever when making an attempt to shift gears left me somewhat involved that my heavy-handed (or ought to that be “fat-footed”) inputs would finally show an excessive amount of for it. I’m positive that it was as much as the duty at hand, however I feel the componentry right here might in all probability do with somewhat extra sturdiness and heft so as to add some “person expertise” reassurance.

Driving within the Curves

By the point I entered the Nationwide Park correct, I had my suspicions concerning the bike’s forks. Them being upside-downers, gold and KYB branded ought to imply that they had been extra biassed in direction of corners than consolation, and low and behold, they had been certainly. Growth joints and different highway imperfections had been duly famous after which telegraphed upwards slightly than the bike making an attempt to cover them or iron them out. This didn’t occur in the identical telepathic method as I might count on on an R1 or different extra track-focused racer, however it was undoubtedly there.

And now the quiet highway, larger pace limits and sparsity of visitors might imply just one factor. It was time to place the R15M’s quickshifter and Variable Valve Actuation underneath the highlight. Should you – like I – hoped for the VVA to kick in like some form of Honda V-Tec-type affair, I’m right here to report that it undoubtedly didn’t. Actually, the one actual signal that it was operational was the looks of somewhat message on the sprint that got here on at around7400 rpm. So simply to be completely positive, I pulled over to the aspect of the highway and ran the bike up via the gears with the throttle pinned, shift lights a-flashing and with the VVA doing its factor.

And sure, I used to be impressed. Or not less than, that’s what the massive grin on my face was telling me. In observe, the VVA proved to be extra of a “this engine has longer legs than I assumed” slightly than the rush-of-stars that I hoped for. No, it by no means “kicks in” however here’s a small engine that basically does punch above its weight and that appears capable of carry on going proper up via the rev vary till the shift lights lets us each know that we now have to alter gears.

And whereas some shift lights let you know what you already can gleam by the sound of an engine screaming, “For the love of God, please change gears earlier than I explode.” This tiny little screamer felt prefer it had loads extra room to maneuver and the short shifter was a welcome addition to the celebration, working properly and in concord with the ‘field and donk. My solely detrimental throughout this complete expertise was that the sound of the bike by no means appeared to match its talents. I wished to listen to a tiny, triumphant roar to actually spherical off the entire thing, however all that I heard from the bike was a boring and considerably unimpressive drone. Makes me surprise what an aftermarket can would add to the combo…

All of the bells and whistles, however the engine word is somewhat underwhelming. Picture by way of Machines That Dream.

Utilizing my newfound velocity, now appeared to be an ideal time to saviour and/or savage some corners. Whereas I had my suspicions that my 80 kg body would perhaps be somewhat an excessive amount of for such a small bike, flummoxing the suspension if I had been to push too onerous, I managed to get nothing however composure and clean-cut strains again. And by the scale of the rooster strips nonetheless seen on the bike after my trip, it seems that I didn’t even get near its lean limits.

I really feel that it was right here, within the park’s repeatedly delivered units of 80 km h corners, that the bike actually shined – particularly when the hills had been taken out of the equation. Give it a pleasant sequence of left and rights to slice up with out the necessity to ask an excessive amount of from its tiny engine and the R15M actually impresses. Its featherweight mass, agency shocks and tiny rubber meant that it was virtually falling into corners seemingly studying my thoughts slightly than needing any substantial inputs via the bars. Once more, it’s not about to outcorner a litre bike, however with a full 70 kgs lower than them I’d humbly counsel that given the suitable piece of highway and rider abilities, it’d be proper up the tailpipe of a extra clumsily piloted and fatter-arsed ‘huge’ bike.

As for the bike’s traction management, I used to be somewhat confused as to why Yamaha included it within the first place. You’d be doing very rattling properly to get the rear unfastened on the R15M even at main lean angles. Asking my official Yamaha mate, he replied, “With the traction management, the short shifter, slipper clutch and all the opposite race options – it’s not completely mandatory with 18hp. However it’s good to have on any bike and it solely has to work as soon as to save lots of your ass.” Level taken.

Freeway Driving

Having skilled the bike within the metropolis and on some twisties, I had a sneaking suspicion {that a} longer journey at larger speeds can be an fascinating little check for the R15M. Selecting the highway from my inner-western Sydney house to my guardian’s property on the town’s outskirts about an hour’s freeway brap away, I jumped on and quick-shifted my means over the ribbon of asphalt at ever-increasing speeds till lastly I used to be belting alongside on the roads most velocity; 110 kmh plus an additional 5 for good luck.

As suspected, the bike’s limits had been being pushed right here. Whereas its potential to deflect the crosswinds and different buffeting generated by busses, vans and nature was admirable, maintaining our speeds regular at what was very near the bike’s maxim velocity in the course of the slight uphill and downhill sections took a metric butt tonne of focus, as did maintaining with the remainder of the highway’s visitors. Add this to the truth that the bike was in sixth gear whereas additionally displaying the primary two lights on the shift indicator and also you’ll hopefully get the identical impression I bought in the course of the trip.

This isn’t the place the bike is happiest. After two hours within the saddle at these speeds I used to be just about spent and if the bike might communicate, I wouldn’t have been shocked if it gave me a mouth filled with expletives. I used to be additionally discovering it troublesome to get my head able that didn’t cop the complete blast of air coming off the bike’s windscreen. In different phrases, it was rattling noisy. However on the plus aspect, the sporty place virtually all sportsbikes drive their riders to undertake meant that the blast of wind hitting and lifting my chest did relieve a few of that hand and wrist stress.

What Might Be Higher on the 2023 Yamaha YZF-R15M?


Fashionable manufacturing facility bikes – even the racing ones – are often muffled to a point. The grilles on the highest of the R15M’s tank are a design borrowed from the larger R and MT bikes in Yamaha’s vary, and on these bikes the grilles are designed to ship a extra beefy sound instantly into the rider’s face, thereby giving them an improved using expertise with out additionally deafening the remainder of the suburb. Right here they’re clearly just for present, and the result’s a motorcycle who’s efficiency, seems and dealing with really feel out of step with its sounds.

Positive, there’s not that a lot you are able to do with 155cc to make it sound like a roaring big, however I simply wished it to be somewhat extra racer and rather less meh. Whereas Yamaha (or not less than, Yamaha India( don’t appear to supply an finish can improve of their official record of equipment, a fast examine on YouTube revealed a number of Indian-based house owners who had up to date to Akrapovic finish cans and the outcomes appear to be fairly promising. If I used to be going to trip the bike long-term, I’d undoubtedly be wanting into this.

Freeway Driving

To be completely clear, this isn’t a motorcycle supposed for freeway use. Actually, Yamaha had been fairly clear with me once they dropped it off by stating that it was supposed to be offered in India and South East Asia the place scooters are the default buy of most highway customers and the place lengthy stretches of 110 kmh freeways simply aren’t a factor most individuals must cope with. Lord is aware of, if I used to be dwelling in Delhi, Bangkok or Saigon, a motorcycle like this may be means nearer to the highest of my buy record than any Honda Wave, Dream, or such like.

However when you’re contemplating an R15M buy of your individual and you’re looking at common freeway utilization with speeds over 100 kmh, I’d counsel that you simply check each it and the R3. Simply word that whilst you’ll get double the horsepower with the R3 and undoubtedly a way more nice excessive pace expertise, so far as I do know you’ll not get the short shifter, slipper clutch or traction management as commonplace.

And as an essential ultimate level, I simply must stress how amazingly economical this bike was. Given to me by Yamaha with two thirds of a tank of gas, I used to be fast to brim it principally out of drive of behavior. There’s many bikes on the market that may smash a full tank in a number of hundred kilometres if ridden onerous sufficient, and as somebody who borrows bikes and doesn’t essentially know their thirst or lack thereof, I make it a behavior to take no probabilities re: working out of gas. I needn’t have bothered with the R15M; regardless of doing an entire bunch of very “spirited” using on the factor, the gas gauge barely moved. This could be one rattling low cost bike to personal and run, I can guarantee you. Its theoretical distance on a full 11 litre tank needs to be round 600 kms or so. What different type of transport permits you to do these sorts of distances for $20 or so?

Closing Ideas on the 2023 Yamaha YZF-R15M

You might need guessed it already, however the YZF-R15M actually shocked me. Name it vanity or simply me being too used to huge, quick, highly effective bikes, however I wasn’t anticipating a lot from the R15M. And just like the metallic geese at a circus sideshow, the bike shot down my preconceived notions of what a small sportbike ought to and may very well be. And sure, it introduced again a number of childhood reminiscences, too. No, it’s not going to interrupt any moulds and it’s by no means going to tear you arms out of their sockets if that’s your factor, however I used to be actually impressed to see Yamaha taking such a small capability bike severely and if I used to be searching for a sportsbike expertise whereas additionally dwelling in a metropolis the place huge bikes had been simply not an possibility, the R15M can be like manna from heaven.

Positive, it’s not snug and it’s responsible of numerous the identical sins that every one sportsbikes are; practicality is sacrificed to make sure the rider is tucked in and that there’s an entire bunch of lean angle accessible. This complete trade-off finally led to sportsbikes fall from grace when house owners realised that track-focused bikes which are virtually at all times used on public roads are only a huge ache within the arse. However actual sports activities automobiles are primarily the identical deal and also you don’t see them dying off, do you?

I additionally actually appreciated the truth that for as soon as in my life, I bought to trip a sportsbike that wasn’t lightyears forward of me and my using talents. When’s the final time you had been capable of take a motorcycle outfitted with a quickshifter proper up via the gears on a public highway? Try this on an R1 or a MT-10 and also you’d possible end up in handcuffs or hospital – and that’s when you’re fortunate. However right here on the R15M it’s one thing you could totally savour, and each day, too. Sarcastically, many huge, trendy bikes make you’re feeling small within the sense that your limits (or the authorized limits) are reached lengthy earlier than theirs are. However with the R15M, daily appears like a Sunday race day.

And talking of racing, Yamaha has additionally arrange a correct racing league for the R15 right here in Australia. It exhibits the corporate placing its {hardware} the place its mouth is and likewise making it tremendous straightforward for youthful riders to get a style {of professional} racing without having a pockets the scale of Elon Musk’s to go together with it. And though I’m far too previous (and heavy) to take one among these R15s racing, I discover the entire idea of small capability, small price range bike racing actually interesting and an entire lot much less intimidating than doing the identical on a litre bike.

No, the R15M undoubtedly isn’t meant to be an “all issues to all folks” bike like a few of Yamaha’s different choices. In some ways, it’s like their TMAX 560 Tech Max scooter; they’re much less of a “international product” and extra of a motorcycle that’s designed to scratch an itch in a set of very particular, very distinctive markets. Contemplating this, I feel the truth that Yamaha have clearly gone to a good quantity of hassle to offer these riders one thing far more than a scooter dressed up in fake MotoGP clothes is actually commendable.

If using sportsbikes is an itch that you simply nonetheless feed the necessity to scratch and your present geographical location implies that proudly owning huge, quick and highly effective R bikes simply isn’t a sensible selection for no matter motive, I can’t consider many higher choices than the R15M. It doesn’t simply make you’re feeling like a correct racer, I dare say that with options, dealing with and appears like this in some ways it rides like one, too.
