    I bought my bike back in September 2015 it costed a bit much but it never mattered as it's a a cool bike with excellent performance and awesome ride comfort. I have had a long stretch of journey of 800 km from bangalore to pune in a single day, say 10 hr.... Bike is butter smooth.. Good pickup but in terms of mileage its 42 on highway and in city condition it provides 35 - 40.Coming further into looks its astonishing bike ever launched by yamaha i used this bike for 5 years straight without having any major issues... But this bike have some physical issues like pillion rider seat is not comfortable enough. Though handling and road grip is fantastic.

    This bike yzf r15 is a really awesome bike, it's performance is too good. R15 looks very unique and it's speed is brilliant. I love this bike so much. This bike is 150cc engine and it's top speed 125(use by me) so it is awesome. This bike's sound is so smooth like blowing wave. So according to me "this bike is the best bike under it's price"..

    This is an amazing bike. You can blindly trust the engine it will never betray you but the condition is you have to service it regularly in authorised yamaha service centre.

    I think everyone knows the positive part of this bike so i will write the things which i hate about this bike.

    1) service centre :staff behaviour is very poor. They don't know how to talk with customers. Sometimes mechanic forgot to change or clean or repair some parts but they added that things in bill.

    2) maintenance cost is high

    Style:-

    Its an race looking bike,perfect make by yamaha motors

    Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox

    It is an 6 gear vehicle, those six gears will helps us t achieve an max speed of 188 kilometre per hour while it is in pickup while we ride in highways gear system is looking like an ordinary yamaha gear system,mileage giving avg.35-40

    Ride quality & handling

    Really an awesome riding experiences given by this bike..We really feel this bike as a more than worth of its actual rate..Its gives an experience of riding a ship in a smooth sea,perfect handlebars gives a well controlled handling,its a too short bike but also an weightless bike

    Final words

    This bike defeats the market of karizma zmr,honda cbr,..A noticeable point is that those karizma and honda cbr are more worth than this unleashed racer r15..Its a brilliant make from yamaha..Thanks for yamaha for giving me a awesome bike.........

    Areas of improvement

    Mileage wanted to be improved is my kind request because some are didn't like this to buy for giving an less mileage,silencer want t be shorted like for yamaha fz, it gives more look.....

    Pros

    Style,riding experience,speedometers,controls,head lights,handling,look

  •  5R15v2 beginner tool for future super-sport 2 years ago by Dr Zeeshan
    R15v2...Its the best bike you can get if u love fully sports bike..Don't compare with crappy bajaj(more bhp on paper) its just 150cc bike don't use it for drag races with 200 or 250! i had p220 earlier sold it as just riding about 5000km as bad noise started coming from...

    R15v2...Its the best bike you can get if u love fully sports bike..

    Don't compare with crappy bajaj(more bhp on paper) its just 150cc bike don't use it for drag races with 200 or 250!

    i had p220 earlier sold it as just riding about 5000km as bad noise started coming from engine, fairing and chain..Around turns very bad handling

    R15v2

    Pros-

    Engine (never tires how hard you ride liquid cool diesel cylinder engine is top notch from yamaha)use motul 5100t 15w50 makes bike more lively

    Performance - engine is very revv happy..Revvs to redline 12000rpm

    Braking is awesome no need of abs

    Ride quality is bit on harder side suspension is tuned for handling corners

    Handling - one word razor sharp...Only competitor is ktm rc series...R15v2 corners like magic...Best bike to learn knee down on turns...

    Looks - in 2017 it till looks dope...Rc had made it look old now but v3(if launched) will make all cry for decades !!

    Reliability -no heating nothing sort of long ride have done 200km at 120kph easy

    Built quality - best...Fit and finish very nice , awesome no vibration from anywhere even at 10000rpm

    Cons

    Comfort -yes you will have pain riding it... If you are not fit you will get more pain in wrist and shoulder...Pain will kick in after 25km in city traffic and 100km on highway..Keep a scooty for daily traffic commute...

    Back seat is only for short ride...Also with pillion bike is slow and tiring to ride (17ps only)

    Maintenance - parts are more expensive than its competitors labour charges are also higher at yamaha service

    Headlight - very poor must mention...You are almost blind if you ride on highway at night...Buy a good led 35w

    Competition - more powerful bajaj rs200, ns200 ( same price)

    Upgrade yourself before upgrading bike

    After riding for 3 years i will be now upgrading to r3(when bs4 comes ) or rc390 !

    Verdict

    R15v2 is a beginners track focused bike 150cc helps you learn about dynamics of super-sport bike.. When you use it like commuter bike you will hate it !!

    This bike have been tremendous for the last few years but now after v3 have rise up it seems like people are looking forward for v3 to launch in india .Yamaha has been one of the best production and manufacturers which gave a superb engine and excessive happiness to people with their price that they have paid for. So thanks to yamaha once again,i hope we will see the new upgraded bike as soon as possible as people are very eager to ride the new version 3.

    Buying experience was fine.

    Riding experience is just awesome..Superb aerodynamics..Very stable and smooth bike...Throttle response is also very good..No overheating issues due to liquid cooled engine..Brakes are awesome...Technology is just fantastic and parts are the best parts since its a japanese made bike..I need not say anything about looks..Everybody knows that...Best bike in 150 cc segment...Just keep the baby in proper servicing and maintenance...Change engine oil as specified..Braking system and tyre pressure should also be checked regularly...Only problem is that its not comfortable for the pillion rider..And please guys if your height is less than 5.9 Fits..Think twice to buy it, because you will feel a little back pain..U can solve the above problem by lowering the t fork height...And one last thing in any problem happens in the bike just go to the authorized service centre..No local mechanics..Because they are not trained professionals...One more thing before delivery check the tyre threads..Engine tik tik sound(since its a four stroke engine)..All the body paints and electrical circuits..Radiator fins and most importantly the oddo reading,,if it is between (2-5) kms then buy it..Otherwise don't buy because in that case its must be a test ride bike, not a new bike..

    So guys am the proud owner of the revolutionary r15..If u think my review is helpful..Go and buy r15...U will feel like a motogp rider..But guys always use proper kits while riding..Shoes gloves helmet etc. Because ur safety is the most important thing.

    It was a awesome bike for everything. The legendary riders like only r15. Because of it smooth rider sense and the angle between the rider and starring. It makes a beautiful combination between rider and bike. And the maintenance cost is also so low than other sport bikes. And much available in all showrooms.

    I owned this bike r15 v2.0 And believe me this is amazing. If i talk about the looks none of the bikes in the market can match this look in the same price range. I have been using it since 4 years. Nothing has changed in the performance once it is done with the service. Battery life is amazing .

    Performance- it has a great acceleration and covers the top speed in very less time. Cbr lags in acceleration.

    Not that much comfortable as compared to cbr. Cbr is more comfortable during long rides.

    R15 is not meant for long rides as the std. Seats are not comfortable for both rider and pillion.

    Mileage-30 on highway and 24-27 in cities.

    Servicing- it is required after every 500 or 700 kms.

    Rear fat tyre provides better grip than any other bike it does not slip at all.

    It has 6 gears so you will not feel that lack of gear as compared to other bikes.

    Exhaust note is good.

    Headlamps and tail lamps are amazing.

    Overall it is good package and value for money bike.

    Pros : sporty looks,dual horn, both disc brakes , value for money bike.

    Cons : not comfortable for good long rides.
