As you can see in the image above, the new Yamaha RX15 concept combines different elements from the Yamaha RX100 and R15. Up front, you get an RX100 headlight and source indicator assembly. It features a sharp and sporty front fender. There is also a round headlight with a chrome mask. There is an orange cover and a chrome housing on the turn signals. You can see the Deltabox frame with the signature Yamaha weld in the middle. There is also an old school style filler cap on top. The raised seat retains the comfort of a passenger seat. Overall, the new bike looks quite sleek and modern.
The Yamaha RX15 is powered by the YZF-R15 V2.0 149.0cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that delivers 16.7hp of power and 15Nm of peak torque. There are disc brakes at both ends. It features a black fuel tank (chrome Yamaha logos on each side) and black side panels with an RX15 label. Wire spoke wheels further enhance the retro look. For suspension, there are inverted forks for shock absorption up front. The rear has a monoshock suspension. Autologue Design continues to create stylish motorcycles that conform to production specifications. It would be great to do that in the real world.
