User Reviews of Comparison

  • Suzuki Gixxer
  • Yamaha YZF R15 V3
  • I have been owning this bike since 2015 and has done almost 66000kms on it. Since then I have been using this bike as my city commute and not just that, I even used to take it for some occasional highway rides as well. 1. Comfort This bike is one of the most comfortable in its segment. The riding posture of this bike is straight and handlebar is a bit on farther side but it's not uncomfortable at all. Suspension are very plush they absorbs almost every kind of bump or potholes. The seat doesn't have a great padding but again you can install the foam to seats afterwards. 2. Engine and Technology The bike which I am owning is the carburetted one as it is 2015 make while the current variant have the fuel injection. The bike has SUPER SMOOTH ENGINE which is good for generating 14.8BHP with 14NM power and torque figures respectively. This engine is good in low and mid rpm range while it goes upto 9.5k RPM but it is not that rev happy engine. At higher RPMs the vibrations will generate. 3.Fuel Efficiency The bike is a great mile muncher. It gives the mileage of around 53Kmpl at speeds around 65-70 KM/H while if you cruise at highway at speeds of around 85 KM/H the bike will give the mileage of around 47 KMPL while in city at 80-85 KMPH the bike gives mileage of around 42 KMPL. Since my bike is carburetted one the FI variant will surely give the better mileage than this. 4.Brakes The bike have the disc brakes at both the ends and as per the performance of the bike the brakes are decent. The provide enoungh stooping power with the MRF rubber at both ends. The tires provide the good amount of grip. It is also equipped with single channel ABS for panick braking situations. 5.Lighting The bike lacks on the lighting side. It is okay for the city rides but for highways you will have to install auxiliary lights for once sun goes down. It now comes with LED HEADLIGHT and LED REAR LIGHT. 6.Gearbox The 5 speed gearbox is not that smooth on other bikes but it will surely not cause problems to you. Tips to remember Never ever get 3 people on bike otherwise your rear suspension will be gone and you will then have lower ground clearance and which will result in scrapping of exhaust part of your bike at speed breakers and potholes.Keep a check on engine oil suspension leaks and air filter regularly in around 20 days If your rear tire is wearing more on one side then try it by replacing the brackets for swing arm at the chassis end.

  • Performance is brilliant...but the problem is in the gear shifting...it's really hard to change the gears as compared to the other 150cc bikes...you have to apply more pressure while changing the gear...that's the only issue that I face with the Suzuki Gixxer

  • Having a bike was a childhood dream for me. I spent over 3 months researching all the available bikes in India before finally choosing the Yamaha R15. From the moment I saw the bike I could sense there was something very special about it. Not just its excellent looks but also it's brilliant performance. From the YouTube videos of various riders demonstrating the R15 I could tell that it's an 'Exceptional' Bike. I took a test ride and was really impressed with it. Before that I had an opportunity to also ride the KTM RC200. I preferred the R15 over all other bikes in the 150-200cc set. I will now present all my findings having done over a 1100km on this bike in just under a month. The engine and performance is excellent. Perfection. Great pickup, smooth transmission, easy gear shifts, good braking and tons of power if needed. This bike is deceptively fast. I just want to mention I like to keep at very safe speeds. I remember recently i was cruising at about 60 in the city and the road had less traffic so I decided to throttle it just a little. Within seconds I looked at the speedo and it was at 110kmph. It's surely a top end monster. It is as smooth at 60kmph as it's at 100+. Zero engine strain. The mileage I got from the bike brand new with no service was 58kmpl. That's pretty unbelievable for a bike with this kind of performance. That surely indicates great engineering. The looks of this bike stand out in a big way. Very elegant and good looking design. Classic lines. I can see people staring at it at intersections. The bike gets compliments all the time. The bike off roads surprisingly well too. I took it to Damdam lake and I could take it through the steep dirt tracks to the lakeside without a problem. The riding posture is aggressive and I personally love it. It's feels great to ride this bike. The key is to keep your arms and wrists relaxed and use your legs to grip the tank and thus distribute your body weight off your upper body. This is actually the recommended way of riding ALL kinds of bikes as per riding instructors. Since I got the bike I don't drive my car much anymore. That's how much fun this is. That too with Indian traffic and weather which can be challenging at times. I have already toured a little on this bike having done about 1000km going on road trips riding many hours at a stretch. No problems to report at all. A true winner. Buy with confidence. I will recommend that you get all the accessories as well, like crash guards etc. They all are very good for your bike and help keep it safe. Special thanks to Yamaha JM Motors Noida for their great support throughout the buying experience. They worked fully throughout the peak of the pandemic. I hope that you found this review useful. Please do follow me on YouTube. My name is Arjun Kaul aka Lord. Stay safe and happy riding)

  • I bought this bike as my first bike and my review can be biased. The best thing about Yamaha R15 V3 is that you just can't get enough from a 155 cc, This bike is more than a 155 cc bike. Now talk about the pros and cons. According to me, this bike has the best performance among the 155cc, offering 19 bhp power and 14 torque. Another best thing is the variable valve actuation which helps a lot in delivering power in different rpm ratios. The look is truly based on the Yamaha R15 and looks just amazing. Now as everyone knows this bike has the mileage. I am getting 46-49kmpl by daily commuting which includes every type of drive. The features are also too good as you get a digital instrument console, which has a lot of pf information in it. This bike is a beast when comes to curves. I have upgraded my bike with 150/110 tyre sections in the rear and front. Now the confidence I get on curves is just unbelievable. Braking is very decent and never faced any issue with it. There are more pros than I have already mentioned, but the only cons which I think should be considered can be riding position, which is more aggressive and can be uncomfortable for long rides. But in the end, it doesn't matter, because when you want the thrill of a true sports bike. You know there is no comfort. I just love my bike.

  • I think according to me there is no any one bike to compete this in india or may be outside of india bcs its power, style , looks, specifications, mileage and overall performance , stability, reliability, and last bt not least its technology of japan so definitely win to good .. value for money bike and fully sport bike so i don't expect to comfort like tourer bike ..so before buying keep in mind these points and one thing its my opinion according to my experience with this bcs i love technology and sports bikes only ...

  • When V3 launched I thought there is no difference between the V2 but that's wrong there is lot of difference like bike body, headlight, digital screen meter, comfortable seat (including rider and rear). Actually the main thing I love the control of this bike and engine sound when you reach above 80 kmpl it's sounds like a beast and even you go upto 157 to 160 kmpl on this bike. Another thing is riding comfortable and I never get bored riding the Yamaha R15 V3.

  • Excellent drive, Com-portable, Safe and spreade.Skooty is safe for female service holder.Skooty is not available accident of other vehicle.It is to move one place of other place.It's not influence of air or environmental pollution.We are not tried to drive skooty.It is very important of service lady.Because there is not available vechicle in road so.
