Pricing for the 2019 Yamaha Y15ZR V2 has been disclosed and the very popular ‘Y Suku‘ will retail at a recommended price of RM8,168, excluding road tax, insurance and registration. The much awaited update to the Y15ZR was launched last month during the Malaysian Cub Prix championship round in Jasin, Melaka.

The latest Y15ZR is offered in four colour choices – Striking Cyan, Blazing Red, Storm Blue and Dynamic Grey. Distributors Hong Leong Yamaha Motor (HLYM) is also offering, free of charge, a brake disc lock worth RM100 for all purchases of the Y15ZR.

Main update to the Y15ZR V2 is in the headlight, which comes in a new shape and uses LED lighting. Meanwhile, the instrument panel now uses a monochrome LCD panel.

Going by specifications for the Y15ZR V2 in other ASEAN markets, some dimensions have been changed from the out going model, with an increase in length and width by 15 mm and 20 mm, respectively, while the seat height is up by 15 mm, along with an additional 2 kg in weight. Some of the weight gain can be attributed to the new front tyre size, now a 90-/80-17 as well as revised rear suspension.

A new front mudguard has been fitted to accommodate the bigger tyre size and on the handlebars, new fittings are the passing light and engine kill switches. From the mechanical side of things, the Y15ZR V2 still uses the same single-cylidner, liquid-cooled, 150 cc engine producing 15.4 PS at 8,500 rpm and 13.8 Nm at 7,000 rpm.

A five-speed gearbox gets power to the ground with chain final drive and fuel is carried in a 4.2-litre tank. The 2019 Yamaha Y15ZR V2 will be available in authorised HLYM dealer showrooms beginning next week.
