The R-15 is derived from V-Ixion sold in Indonesia, with the engine and chassis remaining the same. The R-15's look is inspired from the Yamaha YZF-R1. The engine was tuned for higher power and torque, six-speed transmission was incorporated, a linked type sport suspension added on the back. Fairings were added for improved aerodynamics.
The engine is a 149.8 cc single cylinder four-stroke engine with four valves and a single overhead cam. The bore and stroke of the engine are 57.0 mm × 58.7 mm (2.24 in × 2.31 in). The radiator is placed in the front of the engine with a fan behind it. The coolant reserve is on the left side up and behind the radiator. The transmission is return type six-speed with a constant mesh wet multiplate clutch.
The bike has a 270 mm single disc with dual piston calipers in the front and a 220 mm single disc single piston caliper at the rear, both the brake systems being made by Nissin of Japan. The front suspension is twin telescopic fork and the rear is the advanced linked type monocross suspension. The bike has a dual headlight like other bikes of the R-series.
In 2011, Yamaha India issued new models as call the R15 version 2 with a few changes to the frame, body, rim sizes, the banana swing arm (models like R6), tire size and minor changes in the ECU System. The front tire of original R15 is 80/90-17 and rear tire is 100/80-17 while version 2.0 has radial tyres of size 90/80-17 for front and 130/70-R17 for rear.
