New Colours for 2024 Yamaha Y15ZR

As expected, there are now new colours for the 2024 Yamaha Y15ZR.

The Y15ZR or more famously referred to as the “Ysuku” among motorcycle enthusiasts in Malaysia is the most popular kapchai (underbone) in the country. Its success has propelled the Yamaha brand to the No. 1 status here since its launch in 2015.

In fact, more Y15ZRs are sold despite the presence of the newer and more powerful Y16ZR which uses the 155cc engine with variable valve actuation (VVA).

So, adhering to the “don’t fix it if it ain’t broke” mantra, Yamaha and Hong Leong Yamaha Motor continues to “upgrade” the bike via cosmetic means while leaving the mechanicals alone. That said, the proven 150cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled engine still does 15.5 hp (11.6 kW) at 8,500 RPM and 14.4 Nm of maximum torque at 6,500 RPM.

he Yamaha Y15ZR has three new colours for 2024, namely: Grey, Blue, and Cyan. Not exactly inspired names but easy to choose. No one is going to mention “I want the metallic sport matt anthracite,” anyway, right?

Recommended selling price remains at RM 8,998.00 excluding registration fees and insurance. Buyers will receive an exclusive Yamaha disc lock worth RM 100.00.

The 2024 Yamaha Y15ZR will already be available at authorised Yamaha dealers at the time we published this article.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
