    its an race looking bike,perfct 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 188kilometer per hour while it is in pickup while we ride in highwaysgearsystem 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 handbears 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,..An noticable point is that thos karizma and honda cbr are more worth than this unleased racer r15..Its a brilliant make from yamaha..Thanks for yamaha fr giving me a awesme bike.........

    Areas of improvement

    mileage wanted to be improved is my kind request becuse some are didnt like this to buy for giving an less mileage,silencer want t be shorted like for yamaha fz,t give more look.....

    Pros

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

    This is only for showing the style in front of girls .The bike cost is good .And mileage also good. But it on the road is showing more.Model is excellent this is superb for students.Riding experience is excellent on long trips colour combination is superb. Servicing after 3000 kmpl is good and maintenance is if the bike owner is rich they maintain easily if the owner is middle class he use only for occasionally. Pickup is excellent speed also super. It comfortable in long road trips but it is not comfortable in traffic .In service centres after buying a i think they are good in service.

    engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox engine performance excellent till now, fuel economy is 35 kmpl even though it has not been serviced once its best in class if you see from a racing bike prespective, gearbox is too smooth as compare to others.

    Ride quality & handling best build qualty bike tanx to yamaha for giving us such a wonderfull sexy bike yamha r15 2.0. This bike is very smooth on long distance road proper grip on road its top speed above 155km per hour. And all people cathes there entention when people see it. I daily run this bike delhi to agra 221 kilometer distance . With no issue. It is fast and sharp bike. So warning to all bajaj and ktm fans dont mess with yamaha r15 2.0. Beacause its top speed above 155km per hour. And ktm rc200 and bajaj 200rs top speed only 140 or 145 kmper hour. Love for yamaha r15 2.0, Very satisfied for yamah r15 2.0.

    Final words awsome better then the best exxillent bike.

    Areas of improvement na.

    Pros

    good looking sexy look , aggrasive sitting position like super bikes,proper sports bike in india

    cons

    I have purchased this bike when i was in 11th class. Waited till 11 pm at showroom to take the delivery cause next day was Sunday. So i haven't much patient that time. Next morning when i drove it was amazing feeling this bike is a perfect example of love. She need care ,love and support. If you keep caring her she will never disappoint you. Comfort is amazing, easy to handle. Riding since 7 years and 4 months many times tried to modify but natural look is always amazed me. Pros-glamorous look reliable cons- no till now as i love her a lot.

    Pros :

    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.

    Cons :

    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.

    Style i don't think that styling of this bike needs to be spoken of instead just take a look at it guys. Definitely you will fall in love with it.

    Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox the engine performance is just fabulous. 17 Ps power itself tells us everything about the refinement of the 150cc engine. The fuel economy is fair enough ranging between 35-40 kmpl. It seems too bad as compared to other 150cc bikes but guys we have to take in consideration the incredible power offerded by the bike. Believe me the dive in mileage is worth the power offered. The 6 speed gearbox is just smooth as silk. It might feel a gruelling job while riding in city but turns out to be a boon while riding on the highway.

    Ride quality & handling the ride quality is just unbelievable. It has a stiffer suspension which helps a lot in handling. If you feel that riding this bike needs a tiring posture please refer to the photos on http://www.Yamaha-motor-india.Com/service/experienced_rider/safety_riding.Html

    guys do checkout these photos.These are from the official website of yamaha motors india so they are no way any sort of a fooling platform.

    Final words a great bike which is perfectly priced. A great option for those who like performance bike in your own budget.This bike is really a great fun to ride with. Proud to own one.

    Areas of improvement i think that the bike should come with an optional abs and the pillion rider height should be lowered a bit.

    Pros

    performance,styling,looks,ride quality

    cons

    high pillion seat
