This is the first time BikeBD will be officially working with Yamaha motorcycles which is one of the most popular motorcycle brands in Bangladesh. In the past Honda also gave BikeBD a brand new Wave Alpha for long time Test Ride Review & now adding another big name  in our portfolio is a moment of honor for us.

Yamaha R15s features the same engine as Yamaha R15V2 but here the power is detuned as now the engine pumps out around 16.4 BHP (0.4 BHP less then R15V2) but it still gives out equal number of torque out of the engine as does Yamaha R15v2. The bike is 2 kg lighter & 90 mm longer then its twin brother.

The bike features unibody seat which is comfortable for both the pillion & rider & there is a presence of grab rails for the bike. The graphics is different so are the side body kit as it is completely different from that of Yamaha R15V2.

Other than those changes mentioned above the rest of the bike is as equal as Yamaha R15 V2 (technically), it’s just the physical changes is where the bike is different. A month back ACI Motors reduced the price of all the Yamaha motorcycles price in Bangladesh & current market price of Yamaha R15s is 440,000 BDT.

It is a great honor for us that ACI Motors gave a Yamaha R15s to BikeBD for long term Test Ride Review as this will help us to test the bike thoroughly and we will be able to present the real scenario to the bikers in Bangladesh.
