    I bought it for around rs. 138000 cash. Riding experience is phenomenal though for the initial days i felt pain in my wrist and back but got habitual once i had done 500 kms. Now i haven't feel any pain. Looks as well as performance is the usp of this bike also service cost is not so expensive but yes you have to be cautious when you are going to service it in service centre i mean its common for each vehicle you have to be there with your bike.

    Pros: looks, performance, style, exhaust sound, stability at triple digit speed.

    Cons: engine capacity, headlight is not so effective, no abs

    I was confused whether to buy xr-150l(inr 300000) or r15 v3 (which is still not available in market) considering the maintenance cost and stuffs..Finally i decided to go for r15-s. I bought this bike(r15-s -red) june 1st 2017 , inr 218750 (jamal, nepal) ..Yes its costs ...

    I was confused whether to buy xr-150l(inr 300000) or r15 v3 (which is still not available in market) considering the maintenance cost and stuffs..Finally i decided to go for r15-s. I bought this bike(r15-s -red) june 1st 2017 , inr 218750 (jamal, nepal) ..Yes its costs twice here due to high customs and tax rate..

    Speaking of ride quality the bike is smooth like butter..No vibrations at all.

    Compared to pulsar 150-dtsi (bought new in 2016) gear shifts are so smooth click! click! in r15s and no problem of gear getting stuck which i was facing with pulsar-150dtsi.

    I ride daily about 16-20 kms on city(traffic jam is common here) and get mileage about 40-41 kmpl.

    During slow traffic jam rides..I was worried when the bike blew hot air from right side of the fairing to my thighs, but after some googling i found out it was normal (radiator and liquid cooling)

    regarding the pickup..I don't have to describe much..Its fast enough

    during my first 900 kms ride ..I kept hearing the 'tic tic tic noise' coming from the engine(not too loud but noticeable) ..I showed it to the yamaha service center at its first servicing and the mechanic told me that its coming from camshaft, he suggested me to let it be as it may take few more hundred kilometers for engine parts to set properly(at service : changed engine oil,added coolant , wash ..Etc.)

    Now its around 1300 kms at my odo and the "tic tic tic" sound is gone

    now speaking of the cons of this bike:-

    1) the shitty head lamps. During night ride the head lamps sucks

    2) mud guard sucks. I suggest yamaha to have the extra mud cover setup along side rear tyre. The rider and pillion always gets their foot covered with road/mud shits during rain

    below is not the flaw but may be i should improving on myself :-

    3) after riding 0.5 Or 1+ kilometers continuously in the heavy traffic/off-road, i literally cant feel my palm , lots of body pressure on my hand..If there is a fat pillion rider then you are gone ;) . But i m slowly getting used to this bike's riding posture (background: pulsar,fzs,unicorn, hart ford-vr)

    verdict: i can recommend this bike over any 150 cc segment bike any day.

    This is my 2nd bike in yamaha. First one was yamaha r15 limited edition and yamaha r15s is the second bike in yamaha. Buying the bike was ok for me as i have faced little difficulty. Riding the bike is awesome. I feel fresh when i ride the bike everyday. I just fell in love with it. I take care of it like a baby. I fell in love with it so much that even i tattooed the bike on my hand. Looks fabulous and great performance on road. Servicing i always feel some incompleteness. Never reached my expectations in servicing and i maintain very well.

    Yamaha r15s was my first bike, the looks of bike is good acceleration is good but it gives pain in back and shoulders if you drive it for more than half an hour. Sitting posture is not too good, what else you want from a bike which comes under 1.5 Lac. Pros: looks, comfortable pillion seat, dynamics. Cons: price, engine could have been slightly more powerful, rear fender design

    Looks are quite amazing. Dream bike of every youngster. When it comes to performance, mileage is really acceptable. It has a powerful 155 cc engine. But the only cons is that it isn't suitable for long ride because of its posture maybe. However this is the best sports bike for this price range which makes it demandable.
