Amazing looks : r15 v2 is a masterpiece in terms of styling. Deriving its origin from its elder sibling r1, the r15 v2 looks a hell lot sexier than other bikes in competition.
Handling : r15 v2 has delta-box frame which provides an smooth handling experience. Cornering is so much fun on this bike. Gives you a 100% sports-bike experience.
Engine : however 150cc engine seems a bit low capacity for this bike but it never seems to lack capability. It is one of the finest engines you can get in 150cc range. Yamaha’s reliability is trusted all over the world and the r15v2 is no exception. 150cc fi engine does its job wonderfully and is very rev friendly. You can cruise on this beast all day long at 120kmph and this bike wont break a sweat.
Track focused : apart from ktm rc siblings r15v2 is the only track focused bike in its competition. The bike is designed in such a way that it gives you a great super-bike experience. Take it on a track and unleash the beast.
Pillion seat : pillion seat is too high to sit and uncomfortable. The bike is literally meant for single rider and there is no grab rails for the pillion.
Expensive : the bike seems a bit expensive since it has 150cc engine where as for a few thousand bucks extra you can go for higher capacity bikes.
Fuel economy : it is not much of a concern for me but as most of us (Indians) look for mileage as an important factor this bike has mileage of 35–40kmpl.
Finally i would say i never regretted having r15v2. It gives me an amazing riding experience, it has got the looks and its from the yammie stable so 100% reliable.
