Is there any external handle bars available for the rear seat Yamaha R15 Version 2.0 in Yamaha service centres or any online shopping site?
I love this bike especially its looks and its handling thats why I am planning to buy this bike but I want a little safety for the pillion that’s why I want to know that is there any external handle bars or grab rails available for this bike?
Yamaha has re-launched the R15 Version 1.0 as R15S and it is priced @ Rs. 1,14,741 (ex-showroom Delhi).
The Yamaha R15 does not have an option of pillion grab rails. The bike does not have any space or socket near to the seat of the pillion. It comes with a race inspired design and the pillion seat rests at a very high level than the rider seat, making it really difficult for the pillion to manage at high speeds. The only solution to this is the bending of the pillion to the front in order to be safe from the direct winds and small bumps. However, it is advised to stay up to 70 kmph in case a pillion is present. The bike is an excellent piece of engineering and the pillion seat is just for the Indian mentality of a bike being useless with a single seat. It comes with an excellent 149.8 cc single cylinder motor, paired to a 6-speed gearbox. It comes with a price tag of INR 1,14,241.
