Yamaha YZF R15 ABS Video

Yamaha R15 ABS has been launched recently; watch the motorcycle in action…

To announce the arrival of the R15 ABS, Yamaha has released a video on its social channels. The new, safer variant comes with an ‘ABS’ logo on the fairing near the ‘VVA’ decal.

Among other changes, the weight has seen a minor increment and the console also gets an ABS warning now. Here is the video for you…

As we have discussed earlier (here), R15 gets a proper dual channel ABS system which has increased the price of the motorcycle by Rs 12,000. To mark this change, they have also introduced a new colour to the palette – Darknight, which comes at a premium of Rs 2000 over the regular blue and grey colours.

The R15 has always been a brilliant motorcycle and whenever we are astride one we learn one or the other thing. And now with the introduction of ABS Yamaha has ironed out the biggest and probably the only shortcoming of the motorcycle.
