Yamaha R15 V2 owners know the feeling of riding a young supersport motorcycle and each one of them must have imagined how a similar genre flagship would look under their possession. Taking the front seat here, a Vietnam-based modifier has converted the second generation Yamaha R15 into a BMW HP4 Race.

The motorcycle featured here feels slightly different as the front and rear wheels have been kept stock to avoid engine overkill. The front fascia is derived from the INR 86.70 lakh BMW HP4 Race, leaving the headlights behind for this aerodynamically efficient fairing and golden USD front forks.

Unlike the BMW HP4 Race, this modified R15 features the much-celebrated pillion seat. However, the high tail design of the R15 V2 has helped the motorcycle look like a proper race bike. The modifier has used decorative faux carbon fibre parts to add more sporty feel into the product.

In fact, the addition of frame sliders on both sides will protect the fragile side panels during a sudden fall. The side fairing of the motorcycle features HP4 and BMW monikers while the seat used here comes with better padding than the stock model of the BMW HP4 Race for more comfort-filled hours on the track.

The exhaust used here is different from the original one on the BMW HP4 Race but this one is also equally impressive in terms of exhaust sound and design improvement. The effect of this Akrapovic unit is unknown as performance values for the motorcycle are not yet available.

Even though the 149cc engine on the R15 V2 is good for 17 HP, the level of attention paid while making this motorcycle confirms that eyeballs will roll with its tyres on every road for sure.

The braking also stays stock, leaving this Yamaha-based HP4 Race with a single front and rear disc, that too without any other addition except for the Brembo master cylinder. Here is the complete photo gallery of the Yamaha R15 V2, which has been modified to look like a BMW HP4 Race.

Yamaha XSR155 Top Speed Video by Motobigbike Thailand: Yamaha just recently launched the exclusive XSR155 in the Thai market and now a video has been spotted touring the internet in which an individual rides the retro motorcycle and take it straight up to its maximum possible top speed.

As per the speculations, the XSR155 was expected to achieve a top speed of 135 km/hr, but in the video, the biker is able to achieve a top speed of only 125km/hr. The XSR155 is a retro-modern motorcycle and it is a new addition to the already existing XSR line-up with models like XSR700 and XSR900.

Yamaha XSR155 Top Speed Video

It is worth noting that the XSR155 shares a lot of specifications with the Yamaha R15 V3 and is equally capable. The motorcycle is equipped with a 155cc liquid-cooled engine and the triple-digit top speed figure in the video gives a clear view of how capable the motorcycle is in comparison to its rivals.

The biker in the video rides the Yamaha XSR155 and is able to take the bike up to 125km/hr only, which is an unusual thing, considering the fact that it is powered by the R15 V3’s engine, which can easily achieve 135+ kmph of top speed.

On digging deep into the scenario to find the reason, we found out that although the bike has the same powertrain as that of the R15 V3, the XSR155 lacks a fairing. The role of fairing in the R15 V3 is to help it cut through the air in an efficient manner, which further reduces the drag and allows the bike to ride faster with minimum air resistance. With a naked design, the Yamaha XSR155 is unable to provide an aerodynamic efficiency, which as a result affects the top speed of the bike.

The Yamaha XSR155 is powered by a 155cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine which has been teamed with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA). The motorcycle generates a maximum power of 19 HP and a peak torque of 14.7 Nm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. You can easily differentiate the XSR155 from the R15 V3 and MT-15 due to its retro styling.

The product has been launched in Thailand at a price tag of 91,500 Baht (INR 2,13,900 approx), while the XSR155 is expected to launch in India by the end of this year or at the Auto Expo in February 2020 with an ex-showroom price tag of around INT 1.50 lakh.

The much-awaited Yamaha XSR155 has been finally launched by the brand in Thailand.

According to the reports, the custom motorcycles were unveiled only for display at an event, the brand is not focusing on bringing all three into production anytime soon. Equipped with a host of magnificent cosmetic changes, all three custom motorcycles from Yamaha retain the same Deltabox frame as well as suspension and braking bits.

Coming to the XSR155 Cafe Racer, the brand has offered the motorcycle with an old-school look that is accentuated with the use of overall silver finish as well as the chrome elements. The brand has equipped the motorcycle with clip-on style handlebar placed at a lower position to improve the aerodynamics. The fuel tank of the motorcycle has also been redesigned while the stock model’s fuel cap filler has been replaced with a retro-inspired chrome unit.

The pillion rider seat of the motorcycle has been replaced with a cowl equipped with a round tail light. In addition to this, Yamaha has also redesigned the exhaust system of the motorcycle to give it a cleaner look. The slick tyres equipped on the cafe racer gives it an authentic retro look. Like the stock model of the XSR155, the brand has equipped with Cafe Racer version with disc brakes at either end.

The XSR155 Scrambler features an authentic styling with an upswept exhaust system placed at a higher position while the custom bike features a tall front fender. The retro styling of the motorcycle is highlighted via the chrome bits used on the fuel cap while the tyre tread graphics on the fuel tank adds to its sportiness. The rear fender of the motorcycle has been redesigned with an aftermarket tail light. The use of knobby tyres, as well as ribbed single-seat setup, further adds to its scrambler design.

Specifically designed for the flat track, the XSR155 Tracker has not been equipped with a headlight and a taillight. The front end of the motorcycle features a number plate in between the telescopic forks while the sleeker handlebar adds to its exclusive styling. The tracker is further equipped with a redesigned flatter fuel tank in addition to the chrome filler cap. The brand has also equipped the motorcycle with a custom exhaust system in addition to offering wider tyres.
