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

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.
  • 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
  • I think you go for RS200 ITS PERFORMANCE is good and comfortable . . So it's gave good milage ..

Q. Which one to buy RS 200, R15 V3.0 or Classic 350?
  • Pulsar RS200 has proved to be a masterstroke for the Chakan-based manufacturer. It is a well-rounded package with a good balance of performance and handling without compromising on comfort. What sweetens the deal further is the added safety net of ABS, the fresh design update, and the competitive pricing. Whereas R15 has grown larger and more powerful, it needs a certain level of expertise to tame. The more committed ergonomics make for an uncomfortable ride in the city. If you are looking for a dynamically competent bike that you’d like to hone your riding skills on and don't mind the committed riding position, the Yamaha R15 v 3.0 is the one to go for. On the other hand, if you are looking for a retro classic motorcycle, there is nothing that comes close to being a proper retro. That said Classic 350 is perfect for riders who are looking for a minimalist, retro motorcycle that comes with the Royal Enfield lineage. Do take a test ride in order to pick one.
  • First decide for which purpose you want to purchase bike? If you want a race type bike then go for RS200 OR R15 V3.0 if you want cruiser bike then go for classic 350.
  • Totally depend on your tastes and desired outputs. But go for RS, it is a sweet mixture of sporting and touring.
