Remember the time, when Yamaha launched the R15, an affordable sports bike? It was a dream come true for most bike lovers, as the R15 introduced a new affordable super-sport segment into the Indian 2-wheeler market. In the past decade itself, as many as three generations of the R15 have already been launched. But after all these years too, the one thing consistent with the sports bike, is its performance. The Yamaha R15 bike tyre contributes significantly to the bike’s performance so much so, that the tyres are popularly referred to as the bike’s ‘wheeled legs’.
  • Whether it is the R15 back tyre or the R15 front tyre, an ideal tyre must have an excellent grip. It should sustain lean angles and high-speed cornering. This is where the CEAT Zoom series zooms past the other brands which claim to have the best tyre for R15. The Zoom range from CEAT is tailored for grip and comfort which gives your Yamaha R15 stability, grip, and excellent comfort. Moreover, the rubber of the tyres sticks to the surface and lends the rider total control of the bike.
