    It is a very good bike .This bike could be rode by any age category but socialized for youths. It gives good mileage comparatively. Further alterations of v3 can be done as per owners choice with out not much difficulty.It has abs for both front tyre as well back tyre which is more helpful when riding fast.

    From buying i paid 1.20 lakh for my r15 v3 bs6. On road price 1.73lakhs. My 8 years dream.I need to buy r15. Finally it comes to end.2)when i cruise ma bike 70 kms i feel like just 30 to 40. Road stability and cornering was awesome. Mileage is nearly 50km. Abs...Ultra legend.Sharp breaking 3)look is i have no words to say..U know about the look.Like fairing.When i travel on road.All eyes are on this bike..Performance king...Ultra legend. 4)maintenance cost is very less.Just 800 only for my 1 st service.I drive at 700 kms. 5)pros-beast.King of 155 cc. Vva is advanced lev. Pick-up and road stability is awesome. Cons-shoulder and wrist pain. I can't control my pain. I changed my riding position but still it's continues and another thing it's fully made up of fibre.

    1. Buying experience I landed a new job. I needed a bike for daily commute. Its a dream for me to own a bike in my own money. I was looking online for best bikes. I came to know about r51v3 from a friend. The bike was newly launched. I saw reviews about previous versions and how uncomfortable it was for riders. But, one day i saw the bike in road. I totally fell in love. I checked price online it was 1.25l ex showroom. I was earning enough. I decided to go for it. My budget was only 1lakh. I considered buying ns 200 or apache 200. Those were high cc engines compared to r15v3. So, i finally went to nearby showrooms. I was shocked to see the bike is not available in any of the showrooms. They told me i have to pre book and wait for 3 months. I was disappointed. I looked as my showrooms as i could. I called friends and no one was aware. There is one showroom which is in kattupakkam it was the best in chennai. I went there and i pre booked. I never test drove any of the bikes(big mistake). After pre booking (5000) i called the showroom every week to check if my bike has arrived. After 2 months they called and asked for final settlement i went with finance. On the day i was about to pay initial i saw r15v3 standing like a beast. I was omg!!!! i told my dad i want this. I sat on it and asked for test drive they said its waiting for delivery and its someone else s bike. I was disappointed but i am surely buying this beast. I paid and after a week suddenly the showroom people called and asked me to come and sign for registration, it was august 31, law has been changed and from sep 1 insurance is must for 5 yrs. I told them i cant come i am in office. They showroom guy took my bike in mud and rainy day n got my aadhar from my mom. I was so upset that day. Then september 1 i got my bike home. They gave after registering only. They also charged 15k extra for finance ( don't go for finance). I didn't like the buying experience coz i had to take cash out for 40k they wont accept card.2. Riding experience. I know the bike is not comfortable for pillion. My dad is the first person to sit behind and i had to ride in heavy traffic to get my number plate sticker. My dad and mom didn't like it. Coz its a sports bike. I couldn't sit comfortably also. I haven't rode a sports bike before. It was really uncomfortable. Imagine you spent all your money in your bike and its uncomfortable (big mistake). I went online saw how to sit and all. Nothing works in city traffic. But the engine and riding in free highway is a bliss. The performance was good. I still dont sit comfortably in my bike. I got back pain now. Its been 2 years. I love my bike but remember you are going to ride your bike not look at it. Well i do look at her and wonder how beautiful she is. Just like a girl friend. You know pain in the a** but you still love her. 3. Looks and performance. Simply astounding.She is my beauty queen.There were days i simply watch my bike from my window. She is a beast. It may be 155cc engine but it can overtake apache 200.4. Servicing and maintenance I wont say its good or bad. Service centers are like that these days. They dont fix the issue at all. They just force you to get teflon or silencer paint and wont fix the issues you ask them to fix. Simply waste.1st service cost - around 10002nd around - 20003rd around - 20004th around - 15005th around - 30006th around - 3000Its been 2 years. I recently took my bike to pondy. I didn't notice but my friends did that my bike s engine sound is too loud. I have to take her to service. It has great mileage. Avg 50km per litre.5. Pros* stunning looks* good handling* great engine 6. Cons* tires are not good. * no abs in mine* vibration, you will definitely feel in long rides* aggressive riding posture( very important)* poor head lamps* cheap plastic Accidents:1. After a week of purchase, i hit a car in signal, could nt control the bike and the tank plastic cover came out.2. After a month, hit a man and i fell on road, right hand bar bent, indicators broke, full scratches on fairing, silencer and tail.3. Many times when turning or breaking wheels lock and speech or drag.Overall, this bike doesn't suit my family or needs. I never took my mom in my bike. I tried one day but she couldn't and i really feel bad. Anyway it was my dream to own this and after you got your dream what else then.I was so proud to show my bike to friends. They were kind of happy.This bike is basically to show off. If you are thinking of buying any sports bike think 10 times.I still look at my bike, i ride, i talk to her. Nothing is perfect, no one is. :)

    1.Buying experience.Well buying a r15 v3 feels like getting a lion cub among the deer herd. Its an awesome feel. I mainly bought this bike for the looks and for touring purpose.2.Riding experience.Riding position is more aggressive than the old v2 and ktm rc. For daily commute it feels good no problem for solo riders. I use the bike for 3 to 4 times a week, in a week i commute nearly 200kms no problem. The road presence of this bike is the best compared to rc, cornering in this bike feels smooth as butter. Fuel efficiency is good more than enough for a sports bike....Well its a 150cc bike but it feels like a 200cc bike. I enjoyed riding this beauty every day. Everyday you start this bike it give new feel.3. Details about looks, performance.Looks wise the best sports bike in 150 to 200cc segment. Cant go wrong with yamaha's design, i like this bike more than the rc. Its all on personal love to the bike. You can surely turn every heads to your bike. If some modifications are done the bike will be a feast to the eyes. Frankly speaking its the crush for every girl out there.Speaking of performance this bike feel phenomenal , after hitting the vva its the sweet spot of this motorbike. The exhaust feels good when the vva kicks in. The engine is smooth as butter i never expected this from a 150cc motobike before.4. Servicing and maintenance.Well servicing it all depends on the showroom your piking this bike. My servicing was good but the servicing guys took my bike for a ride but i felt bad looking them ride. Well they rev the engine hard. I requested to change the oil which i liked ... Moule or liqu moly . But they insisted me to fill yamaha oil. This oil costs less on online but in showroom is costs more.. Yamaha racing oil. Otherwise servicing is good.Maintenance is all about how you ride the bike, ride the bike you love the bike don't rev the engine hard your mileage is gone, lubricate and clean the chain and the gear lever weekly, use good quality petrol, go easy on bumps and ditches. 5. Pros* looks 100%* performance 100%* fuel efficiency 100% i am satisfied. * cornering 100% change the tyres.* handling 100%Cons.* for touring its a pain in the ass, but i loved this bike, she gives you pain but accept it as her gift and you will be rewarded.* rest for every 100 km in a trip.* wrist pain and shoulder pain. My height is 5.8 feet. Pain only on long trips.* if pillion is with you, your are the one whos gonna suffer.* stock mrf tyre feels bad on wet roads. A lot of wheel spin.* tank plastic feels cheep.* for premium materials credit goes to ktm rc.Note: i bought this bike for touring purpose most guys are looking for touring purpose but it feels so bad if you don't know how to ride this bike in a correct posture. Hug the tank with your legs and bend a little. Don't apply weight to your hands, apply it towards your legs and the tank. My best advise is to buy a agv helmet or any other lite weight helmet otherwise you will feel your neck is gonna break. Thats it guys ride safe and enjoy your ride. Sports bike or adv wont stop you from touring. If you love the bike get it.*

    Pros and cons - based on my experience with the bike.I have an r15 v3 2019 version with dual abs.Will start with the cons/deficiencies first and also do read my views after/about the cons.Cons:1. The headlight is bad for riding at night. It doesn't give confidence at all if you want to cruise. Both the width and the length it covers, leaves you asking for more.2. I did not feel comfortable sitting at the front seat to ride. It was a very good smooth road. So u can imagine if the road was bad. And don't even ask about sitting continuously at back. That would be terrible.3. The bike doesn't completely stick to its lane while doing curves at speeds. It is just a little tough to keep in the same lane if the curve is more.4. This is what's really bad - the lack of 6th gear. The bike would've been even smoother if it had a sixth gear and actually one keeps looking for it while on the highways.5. No gear indicator. Really this should've been provided. Yes, you would be at lower or higher gear on traffics particularly and you would want to know the gear position. But you have to figure it out yourself.6. In the console, you have to press the button every time to move from one info to the other.My take, on the above cons:1. Like many bikes, you have to install a local aux light. And you are good to go anywhere.2. I think it's the same case with most of the bikes nowadays- they don't give any physical comfort while riding.3. But this isn't actually that bad. Reduce the speed just a little bit at times when doing curves and that's it.4. Yes it would've been great if they'd given this.5 & 6. Yamaha must upgrade the console. Really this is a basic requirement nowadays.Pros:1. Smooth engine. If you are looking for a bike which is good for both city as well as highways, this is the one. Absolutely no vibes anywhere.2. Pickup is just too good. Whatever is the speed, you increase the throttle just a bit (or more), there is an immediate response from the bike.3. No heating and other issues even if you ride continuously. Just get onto the bike and start riding.In all, i feel the cons for me are too small compared to what this bike offers. It's a beautifully made machine. Awesome bike and so far so good for me with the bike. I would highly recommend this if anyone is looking in this segment.

2018 BikeWale Track Day - Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0

Ranjan R. Bhat

For the 2018 BikeWale Track Day, I wanted to get my elbow down on a Yamaha YZF-R1M at the Valencia track in Spain. But then I was reminded of our budgets and my capabilities by the wide chicken strips on my Apache. So we settled for the next best thing – a Yamaha YZF-R15 on...
