Q. I am fully confused If am comparing RS 200 with R15 v3. Which bike is better for long drive and good mileage and better performance?
  • In all the three aspects you have mentioned my friend, RS200 is better. For long drives the riding position isn't so aggressive, which makes it easier to ride long distances. Your girlfriend would be more comfortable plus u both would look better on an RS than an R15, she won't feel like sitting on the floor above you. Mileage would be more or less the same. My RS gives around 37-40 in traffic. RS is 200cc. Also it is heavy. I have experienced that is has been stabler on road and highways, although its weight isn't so helpful during sharp turns. For your purposes mentioned, RS will be a better option.
  • According to me it's hard to choose between both but as an enthusiast and Indian I see people neglecting rs for it's desiness but no it's not bad when compared with r15 in terms of engine and electrical rs its way better so we should keep supporting Indian company so that they offer more better in future #pulsardefinitelymale
  • Bro.... go for RS200...I am using RS for last 3.5 years and done 48000 kms still it's a beast ,fuel economy is around 42 km/ltr average....If you tour a lot then RS is better option...RS have better power and topend than R15 v3....Still confused...?Then go for test ride at least 30 minutes

Q. Which bike will be better R15 or RS200? Can modified exhaust in R15 sound better than stock exhaust of RS200?
  • Selecting between the Yamaha R15 V3 and Bajaj Pulsar RS200 would depend on certain factors such as your budget, features required, preference of the segment, preferred performance, etc. The R15 v3 remains one potent small-capacity supersport for beginners. In its version 3.0 guise, it has become sharper and more focused, making it great for sport riding or trac enthusiasts. However, the aggressive riding stance could cause discomfort if you intend to use the bike for daily commuting and quality of components have also gone down. On the other hand, the Bajaj Pulsar RS200 BS6 is quick, handles nicely, and is well suited for daily use. It offers comfortable riding position, good list of features and a rev-happy motor. As for the aftermarket exhaust, you may have it installed, however, we would suggest you against it since it affects the overall health of the engine. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of performance and comfort.

Q. I am confused among RS200, YZF R15 V3 and MT-15. Help me in finding better bike for me. I am a beginner, office going, sporty look lover, and family man?
  • RS200 will not suit for Office purpose as it bit tough to manuever in traffic. Pillion seat on RS200 is not that comfy. For beginners RS200 will be a bit effort to handle.but rs shines in power, brakes and stability and PRICE. When compared both R15 and MT15. R15 and MT15 have better looks and MT15 has better pillion comfort than both the others.
  • As a rs 200 user it's good for performance and ride to office but it's not good for pillion. heard many complaints from different pillion. I wish Bajaj can do something about it. but if u compare sporty look I will definitely go for rs 200. and if u planning for long ride rs is better as than r15
  • Forget r15 from family point of view. RS and MT both are decent for your purpose, but then is depends on your choice which bike looks more sporty for you. R15 is sportier of the 3, but not suited if you're going to ride with family

  • this bike is an awesome choice.you get a lot of things that includes good power, suspension, braking and damn good looks.Earlier i thought that its service cost will be high but that is very reasonable.i am using my bike since 2 years and to now it has not got any issues with it.Everything about this bike seems so good.Perfect for the streets and comfortable on long rides.I would like to say one thing at last.GIVE LOVE AND CARE TO THIS ENGINE AND IT WILL NEVER BETRAY YOU.

  • Well pulsar the perfect beginner package I would say . It has a great high range but if you don't reach there much it can be used as a normal commuter bike but if you wanna roar through the streets you have the power band from 6000 rpm all the way to the red line there it's a beast .I love Rs specially for the riding posture and the top speed.

  • Having a bike was a childhood dream for me. I spent over 3 months researching all the available bikes in India before finally choosing the Yamaha R15. From the moment I saw the bike I could sense there was something very special about it. Not just its excellent looks but also it's brilliant performance. From the YouTube videos of various riders demonstrating the R15 I could tell that it's an 'Exceptional' Bike. I took a test ride and was really impressed with it. Before that I had an opportunity to also ride the KTM RC200. I preferred the R15 over all other bikes in the 150-200cc set. I will now present all my findings having done over a 1100km on this bike in just under a month. The engine and performance is excellent. Perfection. Great pickup, smooth transmission, easy gear shifts, good braking and tons of power if needed. This bike is deceptively fast. I just want to mention I like to keep at very safe speeds. I remember recently i was cruising at about 60 in the city and the road had less traffic so I decided to throttle it just a little. Within seconds I looked at the speedo and it was at 110kmph. It's surely a top end monster. It is as smooth at 60kmph as it's at 100+. Zero engine strain. The mileage I got from the bike brand new with no service was 58kmpl. That's pretty unbelievable for a bike with this kind of performance. That surely indicates great engineering. The looks of this bike stand out in a big way. Very elegant and good looking design. Classic lines. I can see people staring at it at intersections. The bike gets compliments all the time. The bike off roads surprisingly well too. I took it to Damdam lake and I could take it through the steep dirt tracks to the lakeside without a problem. The riding posture is aggressive and I personally love it. It's feels great to ride this bike. The key is to keep your arms and wrists relaxed and use your legs to grip the tank and thus distribute your body weight off your upper body. This is actually the recommended way of riding ALL kinds of bikes as per riding instructors. Since I got the bike I don't drive my car much anymore. That's how much fun this is. That too with Indian traffic and weather which can be challenging at times. I have already toured a little on this bike having done about 1000km going on road trips riding many hours at a stretch. No problems to report at all. A true winner. Buy with confidence. I will recommend that you get all the accessories as well, like crash guards etc. They all are very good for your bike and help keep it safe. Special thanks to Yamaha JM Motors Noida for their great support throughout the buying experience. They worked fully throughout the peak of the pandemic. I hope that you found this review useful. Please do follow me on YouTube. My name is Arjun Kaul aka Lord. Stay safe and happy riding)

  • I bought this bike as my first bike and my review can be biased. The best thing about Yamaha R15 V3 is that you just can't get enough from a 155 cc, This bike is more than a 155 cc bike. Now talk about the pros and cons. According to me, this bike has the best performance among the 155cc, offering 19 bhp power and 14 torque. Another best thing is the variable valve actuation which helps a lot in delivering power in different rpm ratios. The look is truly based on the Yamaha R15 and looks just amazing. Now as everyone knows this bike has the mileage. I am getting 46-49kmpl by daily commuting which includes every type of drive. The features are also too good as you get a digital instrument console, which has a lot of pf information in it. This bike is a beast when comes to curves. I have upgraded my bike with 150/110 tyre sections in the rear and front. Now the confidence I get on curves is just unbelievable. Braking is very decent and never faced any issue with it. There are more pros than I have already mentioned, but the only cons which I think should be considered can be riding position, which is more aggressive and can be uncomfortable for long rides. But in the end, it doesn't matter, because when you want the thrill of a true sports bike. You know there is no comfort. I just love my bike.

  • I think according to me there is no any one bike to compete this in india or may be outside of india bcs its power, style , looks, specifications, mileage and overall performance , stability, reliability, and last bt not least its technology of japan so definitely win to good .. value for money bike and fully sport bike so i don't expect to comfort like tourer bike ..so before buying keep in mind these points and one thing its my opinion according to my experience with this bcs i love technology and sports bikes only ...

  • When V3 launched I thought there is no difference between the V2 but that's wrong there is lot of difference like bike body, headlight, digital screen meter, comfortable seat (including rider and rear). Actually the main thing I love the control of this bike and engine sound when you reach above 80 kmpl it's sounds like a beast and even you go upto 157 to 160 kmpl on this bike. Another thing is riding comfortable and I never get bored riding the Yamaha R15 V3.
