R15 mod by Yamaha Unconfirmed, eyewitness report.


Hi all,

Yamaha has changed the rear tyre of the R-15 after lot of feedback came in with regards to its skinny appearance and stance. Though the tyre is technologically advanced, and a lot of people have benefitted by fitting it on normal bikes, they have now modded the rear swingarm and the tyre to fit the 140mm section tyre from the FZ.

The rim now has a drum brake, so that they could keep the costs in check as the target was to keep the price the same, and to offer the fatter rear tyre... unconfirmed reports suggest that a re-mapping of the ecu has increased peak power to 19bhp, to handle the increased load/drag of the rear tyre.

It is still to be confirmed, but if the remapping can increase the power, coz the original 150cc yam, produces around 24bhp, and this can go upto even 27 bhp with a high performance intake and exhaust. THe ECU was remapped for india, in the interest of more mileage and driveability, which is the indian mindstay with bikes is.

If the ecu change can increase power to 19 BHP, then previous owners of the 17 bhp version, can easily purchase these ecu for about 10-12k, and get an instant boost in performance.

The main news, new version of R15 on its way, matter of time when.

I only hope they would change the rear to the one on R125, that looks so much like the R6.

The eyewitness report comes from inside the factory at fbd.

no way.. its a direct port of vixion (indonesia) .. revamped versions would take another year or two i guess

Re: R15 mod by Yamaha Unconfirmed, eyewitness report.

@Antidote I know that R15 is based on VIXION

@JD I have seen R125 and I wish Yamaha India uses R125's Rear Portion, swing arm and tires on R15. All this should be on the same frame so that I (and other R15 owners) can upgrade.

Re: R15 mod by Yamaha Unconfirmed, eyewitness report.

Well yamaha are planning bikes in the 200, 300 and 500 cc segment, according to some people these bikes have come for testing and homologation or whatever it means to indianize these bikes, by fitting ugly saree guards, checking emission, sound norms, safety norms etc. the 500 is rumoured to be a triple, and the 200 is a v-twin.

Re: R15 mod by Yamaha Unconfirmed, eyewitness report.

i know, but these automobile magazine people they say its available, but even i searched, and i dint know what and how. The only way is ever if you go to the service station to get your bike serviced, just ask for the parts manual for the r15, the stores should have one. And to find out the part number for the ECU, and then maybe try searching for it with the part number. though again the part number could be changed to distinguish it for India, but still, atleast the group nomenclature should be the same, only the beginning or end shouldve changed.

Or we could try opening the ecu box on someone's bike, who does want that extra power badly enough...
