    I don't own this bike but my friends do. They have told me that this is bike is really good. It give stood mileage and looks very cool. I have ridden the bike . It is a wonderful experience. I really wish I had this bike. This bike can take you up to 155cc. It's good looking and but at the same time also safe.
    It is a little pricy but totally worth it. Also girls really like these kinds of bikes. It is pure chick magnet. I really think this bike is worth buying.

    1. It's a worth sports bike for beginners if you have 1.8 lakh.2. Riding experience is next level. 100% you feel that posture at high speed3. Looks are just amazing at that price. We saw yamaha looks from past such as r15 v2 and now v3. It's a direct compotator for 200 cc bikes.4. Yamaha always good in servicing maintenance is not a problem go for it.
    Pros:- Great mileage, best design, good riding position, loud horn in bs6 model.
    Cons:- riding position is too aggressive for beginners.
    Many people thinks it is heavy pricing for a 150cc bike. But practically it's performance is awesome.

    Superb sports model and mostly lovable for youngsters and middle class boys can also buy it. Looks and performance are very great and for a 155 cc speed is also great with great handling and braking system. It describes a true rider in an track while driving the bike and it gives stylish look. Its top speed is 158 km/h on highways.

    When the v3 came out, i was astounded by how technologically advanced this bike is for its segment. With the bs6 variant, they went even further. This shows that yamaha intently listens to the customers and i can't thank them enough. I bought the top end darknight bs6 variant in february 2020 and received it on my birthday. The dealer made the process completely painless. I didn't have to visit the dealership more than once and they took care of everything for me.The first thing you notice when on the r15v3, if transitioning from a commuter bike like splendor is the placement of the foot pedals. It is way at the back, and that was when i realised this bike will have an ultra aggressive riding posture contrary to most people who find it to be so when reaching for the handle bar. Since the riding position is aggressive you sit higher, hence i wouldn't recommend the bike to anyone under 5'7".When you go for the ignition, the engine gives a low growl at 1500rpm that tells you this is serious business. Since then, i rode around the city, in traffic and on highways. I've had the pleasure of cruising on the bike at 60kmph and i have also cranked it up to 135kmph myself. The variable valve actuation does wonders for the bike in the high rev range. The bike has a mildly ferocious bite throughout the rev range which is an amazing thing to experience. You can feel the engine saying "i can do more". Despite the compact, tightly controlled and highly potent engine, the real fun with this bike is on the turns. It is an absolute treat. If you lean into the turn, it skims through and even if you fail to follow the line, the bike manages to maintain a taut line for you. It is like running a knife through butter. The slipper clutch is also a boon. So whether you are a speed junkie or love the winding mountainous turns, the r15v3 will make you gasp in admiration.The downsides are the pain in the wrists if you don't maintain proper posture. If you let your bodyweight be supported on your arms, your wrists will develop a dull pain. Maintain a proper, wide chested posture with your core engaged and elbows unlocked, and the wrist pain will reduce considerably. People have said they have felt some pain in the lower back but fortunately i haven't had any problems with my back on this bike. Second, since it is only a 155cc engine, the bike does tend to lose its bite above 125kmph. You can feel the engine straining a little at the higher end of its capabilities.The bike has a road presence like no other. Commuters take you seriously if you want to change lanes or cross a street. It has the ability to make a few heads turn. The headlights could have been more powerful but since i mostly ride in the city, with well lit roads, i haven't faced much of a problem. The dual horn setup introduced in bs6 along with the side stand kill switch are fun additions to the already loaded bike.The first service will be within a month or 1000km and service centres in mumbai are satisfactory. I had the opportunity to see through the servicing and got multiple tips to maintain the bike. The most important rule for newbies is to use the bike cautiously for the first 1500 km. Make sure that during the break in period, you don't subject the bike to sudden acceleration and deceleration. Also, despite the bike not needing a traditional break in period, try riding the bike in the 40-80 kmph speed range and frequently accelerate and decelerate to let the bike learn how to behave at different speeds. Remember to use the accelerator frequently but slowly. If you take care of the bike in the early stages, the maintenance costs will be a bare minimum for years to come.To summarise, this feature loaded bike with a powerful engine are an engineer's dream. Style and substance, this bike has it all. It is an all round package with stunning looks, breathtaking capabilities and great after sales service which make owning a yamaha r15v3 an absolute pleasure and frankly, if you ask for anything more from this bike at this cost, you're greedy!

    So, after researching alot about this bike and others in the same price segment (1.5 - 2l) i decided that she's the one i need. I literally read about all bikes, pre owned high cc bikes but they never clicked the way r15 v3 did. This year only i bought this bike. The dealership experience was absolutely amazing! loved it. From the paperwork to the delivery was all expedited, no hassle absolutely.Riding the bike is thrill, every time you turn the key to ignition and put the bike in first gear, she's all set for take off! i peaked the bike at 152 km/h. That's the max she went (under various controlled conditions, don't be a squid, she's a crazy machine. The actual kick of the bike comes after 7500 rpm, that's when the vva comes into the picture and the engine just looses it producing crazy power all the way upto 12000 rpm. The bs1v variant maxes out like this :-1st gear - 49-51 km/h2nd gear - 76 km/h3rd gear - 97km/h4th gear - 116-118 km/h5th gear - 139-141 km/h6th gear - 148- 152 km/hthe bike i got was thunder grey edition. From the way the gunmetal shines to the way the red accent runs here and there, she's adorable in every way! tremendous amount of cost cutting has been done for the Indian market because our market has the most stupid mindset, in order to maintain sales, cost cutting has been done. The best part is the wide tyre segment, she leans pretty well and is very very agile in traffic, all thanks to the clip-ons and better body work this time! :d over all drive of the vehicle is top notch!!coming down to the servicing, it's very very economical. Including the free service coupons ( 3 services done so far). The first two services i went for the classics yamalube as my preferred engine oil, great performance, no doubt,costs somewhere like 600 bucks, throw in chain lube, all is done under 1k!! 3rd service i used liqui molly for the engine oil, expensive no doubt, but my oh my, i love the performance and smoothness. Costs roughly 2.3k but worth it. Hands down. She's pretty easy to maintain, not costly at all after being a sports bike.. Parts are cheap are as well. Talking now about the pros :-- worth every single buck spent- power delivery will never bore you, be it any gear- abs is very reliable, saved my ass multiple times- lot to offer for a mere price tag of 1.6l- easy to maintain, spare parts won't burn a hole in the pocket- eye grabber, absolute chick magnet xd- ergonomic, no back pain or wrist pain, however a little adjustment of handle is required. Just a little.- tyre are wide and trustable, lean her with confidence!- average, the question of the matter, the engine on this one is amazingly refined, yamaha has done it finally. The bike give on an average 39-45 in city traffic, and on open road when you're glued to the throttle she fucking loses it and gives me 45-48kmpl, sometimes 52, yes, that has happened. I have photographic proofs.- slipper clutch is the hero here, never fails to to manage the bike and keep the peak performance. - doesn't heat, at all. Even when the engine is hot the fan is so powerful and silent that it's barely audible, ktms suck at that cons :-- alot of cost cutting and cheap material used to build, tank is made out plastic which scares me alot sometimes.- the white light led headlight is a grabber for real but provides poor, and i mean very poor visibility at night. Ktms halogen does a great job on the other hand, it's like comparing like a torch with a spotlight. Yea that big of a difference.- wheelbase is sometimes a challenge- the traditional telescopic forks do a very generic job, usd forks would've been better tbh.- abs is not switchable, not that big of a deal but makes it to the list however.That's all about it. Pros outweigh the cons in every manner. Over all, a great master piece of the low cc, introductory segment. Has defeated alot of high cc bikes in various factors. For eg, tvs's rr310 doesn't stand a change against this. Trust me. She'll outdo it in acceleration and stability, top end tvs will won cause cc, duh!buy it, close your eyes and buy it, that's all from me!
