Yamaha R15 V4 Indonesia model produces 0.9 PS of higher power and 0.5 Nm of more torque. It also gets a beautiful new special white color…
Earlier in September 2021, Yamaha surprised everyone by launching the new R15 V4 in India – a model that was styled completely different from the V3 (that still does not look dated). The newest version has now gone global and Indonesia is the second country to get the new motorcycle and both the variants are available there.
Pricing in Indonesia starts at 38.9 million IDR (Rs. 2.03 Lakh) for the R15 V4 and 43.5 million IDR (Rs. 2.27 lakh) for the R15M. In comparison, the new R15 retails at Rs. 1.71 lakh for the standard model and Rs. 1.83 lakh for the M model in India (ex-showroom).
Let’s talk about the Indonesian models of Yamaha R15 and R15M:
The R15 V4 is offered in two colours – Tech Black and Icon Blue whereas the R15M gets the standard Grey Icon Performance colour scheme and a special White & Red 60th Anniversary World GP Livery (also exclusively available on Yamaha R1, R7 and the R3).
The Surprising Difference – The Engine:
A major difference between the Indian version and the Indonesian spec R15 is the engine output. Since, Indonesia doesn’t have strict emission laws like we have in India, it gets the R15 which churns 19.3 PS of power and 14.7 Nm of torque. These are the same specs as the Indian BS4 R15. In its BS6 tune, the R15 V4 churns 18.4 PS and 14.2 Nm.
The Yamaha R15M is the sportier version offering Quick-Shifter, gold coloured upside-down front forks and traction control as standard. Both the models are decked out with a fully digital LCD console featuring Yamaha’s Y-connect and Bluetooth connectivity. It sports a single mid-mounted LED headlamp, tail lamp with twin aggressive LED DRLs.
