Q. Which would be a more reliable machine between RTR 200 4v and fz25 and even the MT15?
  • Selecting the right car would depend on several factors such as your budget preference on the segment, features required, engine options, brand preference, etc. The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has been the benchmark when it comes to 160cc motorcycles. With the BS6-compliant iteration, TVS has made sure it is still as sprightly, with the '21 update making it the most powerful bike in the 160cc sporty commuter class. The overall package and reasonable pricing make it a truly value-for-money motorcycle in its segment. TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is powered by a 159.7 cc engine. This Apache 160 4V engine generates a power of 17.63 PS @ 9250 rpm and a torque of 14.73 Nm @ 7250 rpm. And, that for Yamaha FZS 25 packed with amazing looks and powered by a 249 cc engine. This FZS-25 engine generates a power of 20.8 PS @ 8000 rpm and a torque of 20.1 Nm @ 6000 rpm. On the other hand, if we talk about The Yamaha MT 15 BS6 is more than just the R15 v3 sans fairing. The naked looks sharp is light and can be a hoot to commute. However, the compact riding posture might be a bit too tight for large riders. What is also disheartening is the poor switchgear and build quality as well as the lack of dual-channel ABS. Yamaha MT 15 is powered by a 155 cc engine. This MT 15 engine generates a power of 18.5 PS @ 10000 rpm and a torque of 13.9 Nm @ 8500 rpm. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision.

Q. How much is the top speed of MT 15 BS4 & MT 15 BS6?
  • Mt accelerates faster till 110kmph but because of better aerodynamics R15 flies away after 110kmph on highway. R15 has no competition with the pickup of MT in the city and comfortable riding position.The rpm of both bikes redlines at 11300 rpm. The rpm of MT is not locked but because of bigger sprocket it accelerates faster and looses on top speed.Also the gearing of MT feels shorter than R15.

Q. Which one is better MT15 or NS200? And what is the mileage of NS200?
  • Among the two, we would suggest you to go with the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 if you are looking for a affordable sporty streetfighter. The bike employs a 199.5cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine. It churns out 24.5PS at 9750rpm and 18.5Nm at 8000rpm. The NS200 offers sporty handling, a smooth 6-speed gearbox and brilliant performance at an affordable price point. On the other hand, if you want better mileage, a versatile 155cc engine, compact design and attractive styling, then the Yamaha MT 15 would be a better option. However, the compact riding posture might be a bit too tight for large riders. What is also disheartening is the poor switchgear and build quality as well as the lack of dual-channel ABS.

    I bought this Bike for the College Purpose using it for 2 years, And Really 101% satisfied with the bike. The initial acceleration of the Bike is Just Awesome... seats are also very comfortable for the driver as well as for the Pillion🤟🏻 Engine is very Smooth and Refined 20.5 PS of power is enough... the styling of the bike is also awesome.. you can Get to the highways as well as in city any time... riding position is also Good... maintenance cost is Low ... but too much vibration at High speed... if you go 110+ you"ll definitely feel the vibrations in the handle and Foot rests.... It could get LEDs but Halogen is sufficient at night.... missing the USD Forks .... getting mileage of 38-40 kmpl....

    I have been using apache 2004v from last 1 and half year and done almost 16 k.My longest trip ever was darjeeling, Gangtok and back to home and ride was about 2500 kms in 7 days.I was really impressed with performance and mileage of bike.Even in hills it doesn't felt like unpowered.

  • 5.0

    It is a brilliant vehicle with strong low end and midrange, easy and comfortable for daily commute, the only issue I faced so far is the gearbox, false neutrals happen too often, plus shifting down to 2nd gear, the gear lever tends to be stuck until you give acceleration

    I am riding this bike for 2 months and the bike is just rocks. The bike is very powerful according to its segment, sometimes I feel that I am riding a 200cc bike or more. Some pros as per my views-1. Initial pickup is excellent.2. Midrange is mindblowing. Sometimes after midrange pull, you can feel, extra pickup..that might be because of VVA.3. At high-end it is smooth..Though I didn't test it beyond 100kmph. But at the high end, you don't feel any vibration.4. Sporty design. Look and feel is class in its segment.5. Clutch is very light. As MT15 has an A&S clutch, no rear wheel locking at high gear & low-speed combination, and aggressive downshifting.6. Front braking is awesome, the rear one is ok ok.7. mileage is good.8. Side stand engine cut-off feature enabled.Some cons as per my views--1. Front mudguard should be a little extended. The current one causes problems during the rainy season.2. The pillion seat should have a properly designed grab handles(The current one looks good but is not too useful). Also, the seat could be a little extended(Though most of the time I ride this bike with a pillion and we don't face any such problem. For two healthy persons, the seat length is not suitable for long rides).3. Yamaha should use some kind of radiator guards like KTM Or Dominar.Overall MT15 BS6 is a perfect choice.

    Performance is good, The bike riding posture is straight and it will not harm your shoulders & back after long rides. The power of the bike is quite realistic and immeasurable, Mt gives an immense amount of power to be needed for daily use for city rides as well as on highways. The average is quite good, After your 3rd servicing, It will give an average of about 35 km/h. And, Lastly about it's looks- I had purchased mt15 ice fluo vermillion, I.E orange alloys with a white finish on the tank and trust me that look just awesome and this color variant of mt15 is eye-catching & once you take this on-road, Many people will stare your bike more than you. The headlamps are good, But when you will be riding this bike at night on highways, you will definitely feel the light's are not worth it. Anyway, Here's my small review about my mt15 ice fluo vermillion bs6 single-channel abs and one more thing, Mt seat is too small to fit for 3 riders, So tripling can be dangerous although, Rider and pillion seat is quite comfortable to thank you Yamaha for making us feel proud a proud mt owner.

    Everything Is Good In Terms Of Performance, Riding Dynamics,Features N Mileage. 1st Negative Point Yamaha Should Offer Dual Channel ABS because The Range Of This Motorcycle Is 1.40 Lakhs N Secondly The Most Important Feedback Is The Length Of Pillion Seat√ With Grab Rails N To Be Honest It's Really Pathetic. If This Issue Is Not Fixed Yamaha Will Definitely Disappoint All The MT15 Lovers N Will Regret It With The Company Sales For Sure.

    Yamaha mt 15 is a complete package.The bike has everything that i wanted with a bike for a long and comfortable journey.The seats are very comfortable for both driver and pillion for a long drive.The bike is very slim and helps to drive at high speed and in traffic at ease.It has led drls, Headlight, And tail light which looks very good at night.I wished it had dual-channel abs but a single channel also works just fine.
