Next gen Yamaha YZF-R15 to get more power and ABS

Snapshot: Considering that ABS will be made mandatory in all motorcycles above 125cc, Yamaha Motors India is doing a commendable thing by introducing the same at an early stage.

Yamaha’s Indian subsidiary, Yamaha Motors India is all set to make its entry-level sports bike, YZF-R15 more poised than it already is. The company is reportedly working on to introduce ABS in it and the bike is also expected to get some major visual upgrades. Yamaha’s one of the top honchos also confirmed that the next gen YZF-R15 will be more powerful and will be better in terms of safety and comfort.

"The R15 will become better in its next iteration, however, no details can be shared as to what would exactly the specifications be like, but we can assure that it will be a step-up from the current generation in all aspects of performance and safety. We also want to extract as much as possible from a motorcycle to give maximum value-for-money for our products", said Yasuo Ishihara, managing director, Yamaha Motor Research & Development India.

Considering that ABS will be made mandatory in all motorcycles above 125cc, Yamaha Motors India is doing a commendable thing by introducing the same at an early stage.
