    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.

    • Rs 200 has a better riding posture for a relax and comfortable ride compared to r15 v3 but ride quality is far better in R15 v3 with low vibrations and the top speed is also higher in V3 ( I have clocked around 157kmph on my bike) Hardware is also better in v3 so if you can adjust with the sportier ergonomics of the r15 v3 then you should definitely go for it. It just goes like a hot knife on butter in the corners !
    • Now r15 v3 it has the race DNA and track ergonomics.Yamaha this time didnt compromise performance for looks as in a v2.Its the best in 150 cc segment..Rc 200 is a track oriented race machine if you are a beginner go for r15.rv is a great choice which can be compared to Apache rtr or cbr 350 or rr 310 from the.

    Q. Can I use R15 V3. 0 for long rides, 500 kms around without discomfort? If not which bike in this price range is better?
    • Yes u can go 500 kms around without discomfort by staying 30 minutes for every 100 to 120 Km On average i have a great experience go 1000 Km, height is below 5'9 - 5.5 its preferably otherwise it will be uncomfortable for long ride.
    • It will be a little bit stiff ride while going that far on a sports bike like Yamaha YZF R15 V3 which have such an aggressive seating position. We will recommend you to go for bikes which have a more comfortable riding position we can give you some awesome options such as Bajaj Pulsar NS200, KTM 200 Duke, and Bajaj Dominar 400.
    • It's a good for 500 KiloMiter. But it's definitely not comtable but it's good choice for speed and performance and cornering
