    Suraj S R

    It was a dream from the age of 15 to own a yamaha machine. At my 22 birthday, my father took me to his small activa and he told me we are going to buy your birthday gift. I was confused why he is taking me to buy it he could have brought it prior. At last, the scooter stopped in front of a huge board and my heart started beating, my excitement and confusion started hitting me again. And I got hands-on with that beautiful machine it was r15 v3 . The riding experience is awesome. We are actually sitting inside a cockpit that kind of comfort we will get in v3 . Everybody knows that in terms of looks and performance and also mileage there is no other bike in its segment is there to compete with v3 . Maintenance is like a normal bike. As compared to other bikes in the segment its really cheap.
    Pros - looks, mileage, performance, reliability, gears are crisp.
    Cons- I haven't felt any but many people told me that there was the issue of back pain due to the posture
    Other than that I haven't felt any.

    Try to do the lubing every 500km and also go with a good quality synthetic oil. Don't go with off-brands. I normally use Motul.

  • Worth every single rupee...

    2 years ago


    Vishal Sampathu

    The customer service is marvelous as you pay lots of money for it, this is one of the most important factors for a good experience.
    Riding experience is awesome, had loads of fun in city but bike is not for long rides. You will experience back and hand pain if you're in that position for about a few hours continuously. Best for city rides.
    Looks are stunning no complaints about it, bike performs really well, engine is refined and very smooth minimal vibrations, pickup is better than most 125 and 155 cc segment bikes.
    Pillion comfort is not bad neither good, but due to the unibody seat it has seen an improvement. Again pillion will experience ass pain if he/she sits for a long period of time...
    Maintenance cost is very low
    The most favorable part of this beauty is that you get a really money saving mileage as well as it goes to top speeds upto 140+. This is very rare as it is 155cc, this is where the vva technology helps.
    Bike is best for youths only, uncles can ride it but their body will experience stress compared to younger boys.

    The dealership experience was perfect when you buy a new bike, bike riding experience is very much harsh, the Handle position is very low it will start paining in your palm and shoulder once you ride above 20KM, not suggested for a long journey, Suspension is on the stiffer side it is tuned for track only, in the normal road with breaker and potholes, its oil shield will damage as happened in my case after rinding only 6600KM. Service cost is OK. If you want a bike that looks aggressive and sporty then you can consider this, considering small engine power and performance is top-notch, it has good road conditions it flys up to 130-135kmph effortlessly, but if you are a regular commuter and do long journey don't go for it.

  • Unmatched and thrilling performance but comes with a price.

    1 year ago


    Soumya Jyoti Lahiri

    Firstly, the buying experience was phenomenally good. Purchased the motorcycle from a showroom with an endless collection of every motorcycle and scooter offered by yamaha India. On the first day, the test ride vehicle was unavailable but the next day i was generously offered the test ride vehicle and after the ride, i was determined to get the same motorcycle, the mighty yamaha r15s (modified r15 v3).
    Coming to the ride experience, it is next to heaven for a sports motorcycle lover. The race-committed seating position and peppy performance from the 155cc heavenly refined engine are just the best. Though the committed seating position is loved to the next level, it is a pain when filtering through traffic (and with a pillion, it becomes next to hell) as the entire load comes on the wrist of the rider. Next, the looks of the motorcycle are unmatched as compared to other 150cc to 200cc motorcycles in the Indian market. Often, people mistake it to be a big bike (i.E. A superbike). The 155cc engine delivers a thrilling performance that is easily able to gulp any other motorcycle of its range (considering the price as well as engine capacity) and when vva gets activated after about 7,000 rpm, it is an experience of another level. Even after such a thrilling performance, the r15s is able to provide a shockingly good mileage of about 45 to 50 kmpl (my body weight is on the heavier side). The tyres also provide good grip in higher speeds but the mileage of the tyres are a bit lower than other similar motorcycles. It is also evident that when in moderate traffic, the r15s have a tendency to heat up quickly but the good thing is the hot air gets well thrown out away from the rider's legs.
    As we all know, performance comes with a price in the case of motorcycles, it is also applicable to yamaha r15s as well. The r15s demands a bit more attention as compared to other motorcycles with similar displacement maybe because of the high compression and high-performance engine. The cost of service is also on the higher side including the expenses on engine oil and coolant. In my opinion, when a motorcycle is providing such a riding experience with a thrilling performance it deserves good service and needs to be maintained with utmost care.
    So, to conclude, i must say that if anyone is looking forward to purchasing a yamaha r15s, please go for it. The riding pleasure would blow your mind and compensate for all other consequences. Thank you for your time and attention.

    1. Best bike in its segment
    2. Very comfortable
    3. Dashing looks with high-end performance
    4. Service is a little expensive
    5.Yamaha is using a white back-lit all-digital console for r15 version 3.0. The unit looks awesome and is perfectly derived from race-spec options. The wide display offers a gear indicator, top speed, horizontally visible tachometer, and a vva indicator.

    The bike has the most stylish looks and the performance of the bike is very extreme. The power that bike generates never lets you feel that you are riding a 155 cc bike because no bike can beat this in this segment and the control it offers you and looks its just mindblowing. Most considered bike in the 2 lakh segment.

    It was a dream from the age of 15 to own a yamaha machine. At my 22 birthday, my father took me to his small activa and he told me we are going to buy your birthday gift. I was confused why he is taking me to buy it he could have brought it prior. At last, the scooter stopped in front of a huge board and my heart started beating, my excitement and confusion started hitting me again. And I got hands-on with that beautiful machine it was r15 v3 . The riding experience is awesome. We are actually sitting inside a cockpit that kind of comfort we will get in v3 . Everybody knows that in terms of looks and performance and also mileage there is no other bike in its segment is there to compete with v3 . Maintenance is like a normal bike. As compared to other bikes in the segment its really cheap.
    Pros - looks, mileage, performance, reliability, gears are crisp.
    Cons- I haven't felt any but many people told me that there was the issue of back pain due to the posture
    Other than that I haven't felt any.

    Try to do the lubing every 500km and also go with a good quality synthetic oil. Don't go with off-brands. I normally use Motul.

  • Worth every single rupee...

    Vishal Sampathu

    The customer service is marvelous as you pay lots of money for it, this is one of the most important factors for a good experience.
    Riding experience is awesome, had loads of fun in city but bike is not for long rides. You will experience back and hand pain if you're in that position for about a few hours continuously. Best for city rides.
    Looks are stunning no complaints about it, bike performs really well, engine is refined and very smooth minimal vibrations, pickup is better than most 125 and 155 cc segment bikes.
    Pillion comfort is not bad neither good, but due to the unibody seat it has seen an improvement. Again pillion will experience ass pain if he/she sits for a long period of time...
    Maintenance cost is very low
    The most favorable part of this beauty is that you get a really money saving mileage as well as it goes to top speeds upto 140+. This is very rare as it is 155cc, this is where the vva technology helps.
    Bike is best for youths only, uncles can ride it but their body will experience stress compared to younger boys.

    The dealership experience was perfect when you buy a new bike, bike riding experience is very much harsh, the Handle position is very low it will start paining in your palm and shoulder once you ride above 20KM, not suggested for a long journey, Suspension is on the stiffer side it is tuned for track only, in the normal road with breaker and potholes, its oil shield will damage as happened in my case after rinding only 6600KM. Service cost is OK. If you want a bike that looks aggressive and sporty then you can consider this, considering small engine power and performance is top-notch, it has good road conditions it flys up to 130-135kmph effortlessly, but if you are a regular commuter and do long journey don't go for it.

  • Unmatched and thrilling performance but comes with a price.

    1 year ago


    Soumya Jyoti Lahiri

    Firstly, the buying experience was phenomenally good. Purchased the motorcycle from a showroom with an endless collection of every motorcycle and scooter offered by yamaha India. On the first day, the test ride vehicle was unavailable but the next day i was generously offered the test ride vehicle and after the ride, i was determined to get the same motorcycle, the mighty yamaha r15s (modified r15 v3).
    Coming to the ride experience, it is next to heaven for a sports motorcycle lover. The race-committed seating position and peppy performance from the 155cc heavenly refined engine are just the best. Though the committed seating position is loved to the next level, it is a pain when filtering through traffic (and with a pillion, it becomes next to hell) as the entire load comes on the wrist of the rider. Next, the looks of the motorcycle are unmatched as compared to other 150cc to 200cc motorcycles in the Indian market. Often, people mistake it to be a big bike (i.E. A superbike). The 155cc engine delivers a thrilling performance that is easily able to gulp any other motorcycle of its range (considering the price as well as engine capacity) and when vva gets activated after about 7,000 rpm, it is an experience of another level. Even after such a thrilling performance, the r15s is able to provide a shockingly good mileage of about 45 to 50 kmpl (my body weight is on the heavier side). The tyres also provide good grip in higher speeds but the mileage of the tyres are a bit lower than other similar motorcycles. It is also evident that when in moderate traffic, the r15s have a tendency to heat up quickly but the good thing is the hot air gets well thrown out away from the rider's legs.
    As we all know, performance comes with a price in the case of motorcycles, it is also applicable to yamaha r15s as well. The r15s demands a bit more attention as compared to other motorcycles with similar displacement maybe because of the high compression and high-performance engine. The cost of service is also on the higher side including the expenses on engine oil and coolant. In my opinion, when a motorcycle is providing such a riding experience with a thrilling performance it deserves good service and needs to be maintained with utmost care.
    So, to conclude, i must say that if anyone is looking forward to purchasing a yamaha r15s, please go for it. The riding pleasure would blow your mind and compensate for all other consequences. Thank you for your time and attention.

    3. Dashing looks with high-end performance
    4. Service is a little expensive
    5.Yamaha is using a white back-lit all-digital console for r15 version 3.0. The unit looks awesome and is perfectly derived from race-spec options. The wide display offers a gear indicator, top speed, horizontally visible tachometer, and a vva indicator.

    The bike has the most stylish looks and the performance of the bike is very extreme. The power that bike generates never lets you feel that you are riding a 155 cc bike because no bike can beat this in this segment and the control it offers you and looks its just mindblowing. Most considered bike in the 2 lakh segment.
