2023 R15 Changes

  • New Cluster – The biggest change is the introduction of a YZF-R1 inspired colored TFT instrument cluster. There is a Gear shift indicator as well and you can also choose between Track and Street modes. The standard R15 v4 continues with the older digital LCD meter, however, we believe it will also get this new console sometime later.

This is the new color that R15 has received.

The motorcycles continue with features like upside down front forks, dual channel ABS, quick shifter, traction control system, assist & slipper clutch, etc. There is no change to the brilliant 155cc, liquid cooled, 4 valve motor that churns 18.4 PS of peak power at 10,000 rpm and 14.2 Nm of max torque at 7500 rpm.

Unlike the 2023 FZ range, the new R15s do NOT get E20 fuel compliant yet but Yamaha has promised that it will update the current engines by the end of 2023. Check out the list of changes on the 2023 FZX here and the new FZS Deluxe here.
