The entry level R15 now comes with a bigger 155 cc, liquid-cooled engine that runs a higher compression ratio for increased power. Plus new Variable Valve Actuation for improved low end torque as well as top end grunt. The new chassis is sharper steering and the new bike runs a slipper clutch for smoother gear changes under hard downshifts.
R15 still sips the fuel at a miserly rate but now punches even harder above its light weight.
