The Yamaha R15S would be more affordable than the R15 V4 as it would not have features such as the USD front forks, optional quick-shifter, etc.
Yamaha could revive the “R15S” moniker. According to a transport department document, the company has homologated a variant of the R15, which is likely to be called the R15S.
Based on the details available, the Yamaha R15S would have a power output of 18.3 BHP @ 10,000 rpm, which is identical to that of the R15 V3. In comparison, the recently launched R15 V4 has 18.1 BHP.
The Yamaha R15S would be more affordable than the R15 V4 as it would not have features such as the USD front forks, the new fully digital instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity, optional quick-shifter, and the likes.
Since the Yamaha R15S is expected to be a rebadged version of the R15 V3, it is likely to have the same design and features that the latter has – LED headlights, dual-channel ABS, side-stand engine cut-off switch, 140 mm rear tyre, and more.
To jog up your memory, after launching the R15 V2 back in the day, Yamaha reintroduced the V1 under the R15S nametag. It was a more affordable option than the V2. It also had a single-seat instead of the split-seat layout with a high-rise pillion seat of the V2.
