    My friend, R15 S is the replica of the original R15 v1.0 which dragged Yamaha Motors to the top in Indian market. After the launch of R15 V2.0, due to the pillion seat at 2nd floor and absence of grab rails, aggressive seating position and painful ergonomics considering a pillion or a long journey was itself a challenge. Even the seats were so hard and uncomfortable that finally in 2016 Yamaha launched the R15S version for a limited time frame. The reason they had to discontinue this model is that it looks like the old R1, its uniseat provides comfort support and also was less attractive to many college goers, and if it had stayed in the market probably the sale figures of v3.0 might not have been this successful. Since V3 is the only model of R15 available in the market everyone has no option but to consider it. Sadly, for true R15 fans, the R15S model will not be relaunched any time soon. Maybe it will never be released again. The manufacturing has been stopped and the showrooms also don't have any stock. If someone really wants one, then he or she has to pick up a preowned vehicle. The manufacturer could have provided the ABS feature and relaunched the bike but they decided not to because of the previous sales figures and cost to manufacture. Being a manufacturer, they will survey the market, study the demand, look at sales figures and also the cost to manufacture. So if a model is not so profitable they will be forced to discontinue the model. Its business strategy my friend.

    The main reason is about ABS system... The Govt. of India ban to launch at least Single Channel ABS upto 125cc from April 2019. If Yamaha doesn't follow this requirement, R15S will be discontinued forever.

    For a sports category city commuter, It proved to be a good highway mile muncher as well.I know that the ergonomics is not at all comfortable in the first glance and it takes some getting used to but i am 5ft 9inches tall, With a bulk of 85kg and i have used this bike on daily commutes, Leisure rides, Highway touring.Heck i even did river crossings, Extreme terrain hooligan riding and that too with luggage.From my experience i can say that it may not be the best, But it sure can do anything you throw at it.All you need is confidence on your skills and trust on the engineering behind the bike.You can rip 110 - 120 kmph on highways for long durations and the engine is never stressed.While braking just grab the tank with your knee and your wrists will never feel the strain.Just change to motul 4t 7100 20w40 engine oil for best performance.
