All New Yamaha R15 2017 chassis may seems the same as before.
But, with upside down fork and underyoke handle bars, Riding position is more leaned forward than the old R15.
Luckily, this position is supported with wide and long seat.
Thus, rider can manage to change seating position either when full leaned forward at high speed, or get upright at traffic.

Not like old R15 passenger sits higher. So that passenger bow a lot to get close to rider.
In fact, Yamaha provided a test ride session at Sentul circuit just after the launch of All New R15 But, too bad.
