Gallery: 2015 Yamaha Y15ZR Launched at Berjaya Times Square - RM8,000-ish incl GST

[caption id="attachment_20022" align="aligncenter" width="640"]2015 Yamaha Y15ZR 150 in Malaysia 2015 Yamaha Y15ZR in Malaysia[/caption] This has been an important launch for Hong Leong Yamaha for 2015. The 150cc moped has been available in the neighbouring market that is Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand. Exciter 150 FI, Jupiter MX King and now in Malaysia, it is named Y15ZR. I have been asking about the name, why it is not named 150LC, to Mr Voon YK of HLYM. I asked whether the name Y15ZR is choosen because it is the same like Y125Z which is a high performance moped so that the user will think that the Y15ZR is also one part of high performance product from Yamaha? Mr Voon YK said yes, how you perceive the bike is correct.  Also asked is whether this Y15ZR is to replace the Y125Z soon? No, the Yamaha Y125Z is still in production, but since it is a long production bike (old bike), it might be stopped someday. But not anytime soon as HLYM tries to comply to the government for any rules and regulation regarding the 2-stroke bike in Malaysia. For your information, any manufacturer can still continue to produce their existing 2-stroke bike if they follow the rules and regulation but cannot produce a new line of 2-stroke model. Hence, we can see Y125Z is still available from Yamaha and Dinamik 120 still available from Modenas. But why not Kawasaki KRR150? 2015-08-08 12.21.21 Y15ZR comes with 3 colour to choose that is Red, Blue and Black. The one that interest me is the blue colour. It got that really nice blue, grey and white combination that looks very good in real life rather that in the picture. The black and red is nice too, but as it is from Yamaha, we know that blue works best for them since their official colour is Race-Blu. The engine of the Y15ZR is 4-stroke, 4-valve SOHC and liquid-cooled. Bore and stroke is 57.0 x 58.7 mm that is the same number with the one in the engine of Yamaha FZ150i. This might actually indicate that it is using the same engine with few tuning here and there. It can generates maximum output at 15.4PS (11.3kW) at 8,500RPM and 13.8Nm of torque at 7,000RPM. Comparing to the 2014 Yamaha FZ150i, we can see that it is 0.9kW lower with FZ150i output at 12.2kW. One more thing to notice about the engine is that now it is using fuel injection system replacing the carburetor system in the 135LC previously. 2015-Yamaha-Y15ZR-150-FI-001.04 Looks closely at the kick-starter location and you can see that there is no kick-starter. 2015-Yamaha-Y15ZR-150-FI-001.34 The rear tyre now are super wide, wider than 135LC and FZ150i, at 120/70-17. That is wiiiidddeee. 2015 Yamaha Y15ZR 150 FI price is RM8,000-ish incl. GST (basic price). For comparison, 2014 Yamaha FZ150i is RM8,600 and 135LC 5-speed at RM7,000. All basic price.
