The perfectly customized Yamaha R15 Raptor is definitely one of the smartest 150cc motorcycles right now. A YouTube channel “One Of Its Kind” (O.F.I.K) has shown us how technology can make a stock model of a motorcycle feel like eye candy to the masses.
The 2013 Yamaha R15 V2 used here comes with more electronic options than a commuter car, making it the most impressively loaded R15 model of all time. The motorcycle features a flip key, supporting remote unlock and LED daytime running light controls from one button and path-finding light through the other one.

The first button can also be used to electrically unfold the rearview mirrors that fold on their own when the ignition is turned off. Apart from the regular display on the left side of the tachometer, the Yamaha R15 Raptor comes with a tank mounted touchscreen display with options like welcome screen, digital clock, weather information, music, phone, and other connectivity options.
The customizer has mounted a Samsung Galaxy Pocket Neo smartphone for this purpose with custom-designed booting screen and layout. Also, the special helmet with the Yamaha R15 Raptor enables the rider to have phone calls through a single button press after connecting with the system. The move allows the rider to stay always connected.

The R15 Raptor features side stand warning beep, rear tire pressure monitoring unit, custom headlight, handmade body kit, and electronic pillion seat ejector. The motorcycle also features gear shift-assist light, high rpm warning, and remote function activation switch.
The features listed here are not even available in most litre-class sportbikes around the globe, making the Yamaha R15 Raptor a really special model among the biking community. The 2013 variant of R15 is powered by a 149cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine, producing 17HP of peak power and 15 Nm of maximum torque. The engine is mated a 6-speed gearbox.
