Q. Which is the better bike between Yamaha R3 and ninja 300?
  • The 2018 Yamaha YZF-R3 comes with a 300cc, liquid-cooled, parallel twin motor that is refined, powerful and tractable. Complementing the motor is a very capable chassis that feels just right regardless of whether you are in city traffic, touring or belting down the racetrack. The introduction of ABS dor 2018 adds Rs 23,000 to the cost of the previous version, but for that you also get stickier Metzeler Sportec M5 tyres. On the other hand, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 hasn't garnered a lot of fame in India, owing to its price tag. But with the new pricing, the future looks a lot more promising for the Ninja 300. It does come across as a very potent track tool with not so sharp ergonomics as the KTM. Making it a more approachable machine for riders to use it for their daily stints as well. Nonetheless, a twin-cylinder at this price is pretty tempting. Here both the bikes are good enough but we would suggest you to go for Yamaha as it has a better service network as compare to Kawasaki. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Click on the given link to get your nearest dealership details: https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers
  • It depends on what type of sitting posture you like , comfortable or riding stance, i noticed that if you r sitting in r3 which i like a lot. doesnt give you a big bike feel and has more relaxed position (the moment you hop on you will feel that something is wrong with its gear positioning - but its built like that to not give much pain for long rides) and in ninja iyts more of a city sport bike..riding stance is good have a bigger fuel tank which really looks good and you can grab the tank properly with your legs.exhaust note is more of a 650 cc category more bassy.Thanks
  • Both having all the qualities of an entry level sports bike with top end performance....both lack usd forks ..I will suggest ninja performance for the slipperclutch ..and service networks...

Q. I have been using KTM RC 200 it is thrill to ride but I am looking forward to buy 300 cc bikes which one should I go and why please help me out I had Ninja 300, R3and CB 300R in mind or any launch that I can wait and go and I feel R3 little expensive over Ninja is it okay to go still?
  • Yamaha R3 is a definite yes. However V3 of the yzf R3 is expected to launch by the year's end. Ninja 300 on the other hand is a big disappointment as the brake calipers are all changed, tyres aren't what they are supposed to be and nor do they have USD suspension. And as for the 300r, we can just wait for it as it is also a very reliable machine. Hands up for the Yamaha R3 any day.
  • The ktm motorcycles are all single cylinder motorcycles hence they are priced aggressively. The R3 and ninja are both twin cylinder engines. Initial pickup of ktm is no doubt more because the engine has been tuned that way (hence lower mileage) but in a longer run the R3 and ninja will beat the ktm 390 and achieve higher top speeds. On paper at least.
  • Yes..Extremely smooth engine of R3 will b**w your mind..You will enjoy every ride.Bottom end & midrange power is best in R3.It is the best'looking bike also..Close your eyes & go for R3..All the best

Q. Which one is more worthy for its price? R15 v3 or R3?
  • Both the bikes have different specification and price range too. The 2018 Yamaha YZF-R3 comes with a 300cc, liquid-cooled, parallel twin motor that is refined, powerful and tractable. Complementing the motor is a very capable chassis that feels just right regardless of whether you are in city traffic, touring or belting down the racetrack. The introduction of ABS dor 2018 adds Rs 23,000 to the cost of the previous version, but for that you also get stickier Metzeler Sportec M5 tyres. If we talk about R15 v3.0, 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. That's the reason it can not be our primary everyday bike.

  • YZF R3 is a twin cylinder bike and R15 is a single cylinder bike. R3 is a way more powerful bike than R15 .R3 deliveres bike powers in more linerar and steady manner you can is it in daily commuting also and very relaxed position R15 V3. If you can spend more money you can go for R3 and also NINJA 300 u can consider this also as it as more accessories than R3 and way more cheaper.
