    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/

    • 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.

At this price point, KTM RC 125 seems a tad expensive and does not justify the pricing, on the other hand, RC 200 offers a good list of features & cycle parts and best performance in the segment and the asking price is also justifiable.
