Yamaha has released a new, more expensive "Dark Knight" model of their enduringly well-liked Yamaha YZF-R15 V4.

This edition's 155cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, which produces 18.4 horsepower and 14.2 pound-feet of torque, is carried over intact from the ordinary bike's mechanical design. A USD fork and monoshock support the deltabox frame that is nestled within this tiny mill. The R15 has a dual-channel ABS system coupled with a 282mm front disc and a 220mm rear disc.
In India, the Yamaha R15 V4 competes with the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 (Rs 1.92 lakh - Rs 2.02 lakh) and KTM RC 200 (Rs 2.18 lakh), and the Hero Karizma XMR will shortly join this trio of small-capacity, fully-faired sportbikes.
Taking everything into account, the Yamaha R15 V4 is still a delightful little pocket rocket that will encourage many aspiring riders to start sport riding. Even larger riders might feel comfortable riding it. It is not only excellent for sport riding, but it is even more user-friendly for commuting.
