Q. Which one is better R15 v3 or KTM RC 200?
  • 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. On the other hand, the RC 200 has set the bar quite high for the entry-level sports bike segment. The committed ergonomics might not be everyone’s cup of tea but if you are looking for cornering dynamics with an added dose of power but are on a budget, your search ends here.Read More: - 2017 KTM RC 200: First Ride Review In Images: https://www.zigwheels.com/gallery/bikesslideshow/2017-ktm-rc-200-first-ride-review-in-images/27324/1/1 - Yamaha R15 v3.0 Road Test Review: https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/yamaha-r15-v30-road-test-review/30566/
  • Both are best in there own ways.For RC 200:1)Engine is much better than R15 V3 2) Initial power is more3)Fuel Efficiency:35-45 km/L4) Maintenance cost is more comparing to V35)Top speed:138Km/H6)No vibration at all7) Excellent brightness for the both Dim & Highbeam For R15 V3:1) Fuel Efficiency:45-502) Maintenance cost is less3) Initial power is less comparing to Rc2004)Top speed: 160Km/H 5)Low brightness for the headlights
  • RC 200 much better option than R15 V3 but only if you budget permits it provides an adjustable suspension with the very other body that can do well on track as well as on normal roads but if you are running short on budget then go for an 583 has optimum performance with in its budget.

Q. Which is best bike KTM RC 200 or KTM RC 390?
  • It's totally upto your decision. If you are someone who travels a lot then rc would be a very bad decision. Trust me you will surely feel riding a cycle to be less stressful. The power is insane and scary and looks awesome. But don't get deceived by its looks alone. The bike stands out in the crowd but you surely will lose the interest in riding that bike for more than 3-4months. Dukes are the best choice. Wait for the next duke to release. Tons of improvement. Duke 390 has the best console which the rc does not have. So it's any a better choice
  • Depends whether you want more power or bit pocket friendly bike....390 will initially cost you 70k approx more than RC 200. But you will get insane power, which if you are able to handle. For features RC 200 is also going to get abs sooner so that won't be an advantage with RC 390. Coming to more looked factor the mileage...for 390 you will achieve an average of 20-23 kmpl while for RC 200 you can get 32-35 kmpl. Keeping these factors you can decide yourself. Ride safe
  • Ktm 390 is best because it's has more features compare to 200 but 390 is good in highway not in economy mode..its will suffer...ktm 200rc will manage economic mode and beast mode..its suitable for both
