Q. Which one is better between R15 V3 and RS200?
  • We rode the new R15 v3.0 on both the racetrack and in the real world. While the 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. It's a bike we'd love to have in our garage but its ergonomics limit its practicality. On the other hand, the Bajaj Pulsar RS200 certainly scores a few brownie points when it comes to engine refinement and performance. It is also well loaded with nifty features such as projector headlamps with LED DRLs, a backlit semi-digital instrument console and ABS. All in all, those looking for an affordable, fully-faired bike with sporty characteristics, the RS200 is certainly an attractive buy.

  • If you want more aggressive riding posture and you are corner enthusiastic then you should go for r15 v3 and you can also do weekend rides on it if you want want to go for long rides without taking many stops then rs200 is a good option

Q. Which one is the best bike Yamaha R15 V3 or Yamaha MT-15?
  • Yamaha YZF R15 is more of a track based bike with a rider tucked in whereas the MT-15 is all about the sports and everyday touring with a more comfortable riding position. If you are looking for a bike to ride in the city as well as on the race track with a bit less aggressive racing ergonomics go with the naked sports Yamaha MT-15 but if you are looking for a bike with sporty edges, full of torque and Sporty Stance go with the Yamaha R15 V3. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride of both the bikes so that you may evaluate the bikes on the basis of your outlook toward the ride quality, features and comfort.Click here to get a detailed comparison: https://www.zigwheels.com/bike-comparison/yamaha-mt-15-vs-yamaha-yzf-r15-v3 Click here for the dealer details: https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers/Yamaha
  • Depends upon you as both the bikes offer the same power and performance. On 1 hand MT-15 is lighter than the R15 v3 but also R15 v3 is more streamline which means it is more aerodynamic which decreases its fuel consumption. Also MT-15 is a naked bike and has a better sitting position.
  • Both are different .if you need a sports track bike to commute go for r15v3.Mt -is its naked version( but non identical)you can be the king of streets.

Q. Which one to go for Yamaha R15 V3 or Apache RR 310?
  • They both are from different segment. If your pocket allow's you then you can go for TVS Apache rr 310 . It's kind of sport tourer. Contains more performance than V3.If you want a simple and trending machine you can go for R15 V3. It has refinement and reliability.If you want any alternative I would suggest you to go with Dominate.
  • Bro first of all both the bikes are having different ergonomics.. rr310 is way more comfortable then R15.. from rider point of view.. and if we talk about power then yes rr310 will be slightly more powerful to use for the first time... But I don't think it will create trouble for beginners. Also .. and after all price matters... Rr310 is almost 1.3 lacs expensive the R15.. so it's up to u completely.
  • I would suggest you to go for the v3 because when I was about the buy my motorcycle i had the same choices but why i had chosen R15 had many reasons . the handling is superb , service costs are economic and not too expensive , gives you a mileage of 40+ and comes with a power packed top end speed of 160kmph . i would suggest you go for a test drive and select the machine wisely .
