- So far, the brand has not updated about the launch of Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Monster Energy Edition BS6 officially. So we would suggest you to wait for the official announcement. Stay tuned for further updates.
- The Yamaha YZF R15 V3 is offered with dual-channel ABS but is not offered with kick start.
- Ns200 is a Naked bike and r15 is a Full faring bike it is up to you which type of bike you want ,r15 is a track oriented bike and its riding posture is not so comfortable, if you ride a bike for long distance then it is not preferable and ns is a street oriented bike whith great power , look wise both bike has different., power on the both bike is good ,. in R15 it is powerful bike in 150cc segment and Ns200 is also has great power in 200 cc segment with lower price.
- Yamaha YZF R15 V3's 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, Pulsar NS200 comes across as a well-rounded package that can efficiently take on almost every kind of task required. Be it charging into corners, riding flat out on highways or manage daily chores with ease, the Bajaj Pulsar NS 200 makes a strong case for itself. It offers good grunt, stopping power and well-balanced ergonomics which makes it an all-rounder. Do take a test ride in order to pick one.
- Well the r15 looks really cool,however its a 150 cc so it will perform well if a rider weighs 50-70 kgs above that the power to weight ratio will be reduced. Ns on the other hand loves to be revved & it performs really brutal & fast after 6k rpm & above. Alot more factors are there like city usage,weight,fuel efficiency etc. Both the bikes also get different riding position so the r15 is more track focused sorts & the NS is more of street/naked bike, Hence the purpose of bike usage & the weight determines alot to select a bike between r15 & ns200. Also what sushant commented is right the R15 is more refined though

Powerful bike in 150 segment, full feature loded in this low price segment, feel like a mini super bike, awesum designed body, great pickup with good balance and no vibration on full speed, aggrasive riding poisture may feel uncomfortable for mid age person but youngstar fall in love, redial tyre for sharp cornering. Assist and slipper clutch gives more smoothness to gear downshift, cherming led headlight good but could have been better. Abs offers you better security for sudden breaking. Worth for money....
Yamaha r15 v3 has the best performance within the 150cc segment. Though the price is a bit high, its worth it. Performance and handling is great. I am getting 50 kmpl milage on highways. It has a committed riding posture but you"ll get used to it. If you know how to ride a bike like this, you wont get any wrist or back pain. Service and maintenance cost is low compared to other brands. I use her for daily commutes and long tours and with its racing posture, you"ll ride like a breeze with ease.
Great bike to ride for fun but mileage I got 38/litre on some speed and normal ride both together and performance is beast..best..long drives..no backpain I am 6 ft and I have a implant in my right hand so only right hand had some pain which is usual.first two days was not comfortable to drive but later had great experience.gear seems have some problem when I try to put it in neutral it goes directly to 1 or 2 might be need of practice because the showroom guy did it correctly.
you will never feel you are riding a 155 cc engine peak power 19 ps .at starting days of purchase you may feel little riding discomfort but soon after you will be addicted v3 and feel discomfort on other daily commuter the braking is 10/10 in term of abs pick up is superb vva activate soon as u reach 7k rpm mark .. no bike look as hot as v3 upto 500k at first i was disappointed that made wrong decision due to riding position but later i got addicted superb face turning bike
1. Have purchased dark knight edition in August 2019.2. Mileage part is awesome. Since i ride in Mumbai city I get a mileage of 40-45.3. First service done. Make sure you do not got full tank petrol. It may affect mileage.4. Who ever is having back or neck ache, check out correct riding posture for sport bike. Hold the tank with your laps and keep the pressure away from shoulder and palm to avoid pain.5. I have started new insta channel. Please support:Insta id: r15_Mumbai. During rainy season you would need to get an additional tyre hugger to avoid getting mud all over your legs or pillion

Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Highlights
The Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 3.0 is the sportiest motorcycle in the 150cc category. It is also one of Yamaha’s most successful sports bikes in India. In its third iteration, the R15 comes with a larger 155cc liquid-cooled engine with Variable Valve Timing (VVT) technology. This feature offers an optimal balance between low-end grunt and top-end drive. The low-end performance was something the previous generation bike struggled with. The Version 3.0’s design language is more in line with the new YZF-R1, and the bike features LED headlamps and tail light. The fully-digital instrument cluster also comes with efficiency readout in addition to the regular trove of information. While the bike sold in other markets features an inverted fork up front, the India-spec model makes do with a telescopic unit. At the rear, the motorcycle employs a monoshock. Brakes include 282mm front and 220mm rear disc with standard dual-channel ABS.
YZF R15 V3 Specifications
The previous-gen R15 lacked bottom end performance and was slow to get off the line. In contrast, R15 v3.0 gets a new and slightly larger 155cc liquid-cooled four-valve motor with more performance in the low range. While it still remains a high-revving engine, it comes with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) that changes valve lift post 7400rpm for better top-end grunt. This allows engineers to run two valve timings: one for better low-speed grunt and one for better top-end. It runs a larger sprocket which further boosts in-gear acceleration times. In our tests, the R15 clocked roll-on times at par with other 200cc motorcycles we have tested. City fuel efficiency is better than most of the 160 and even 150cc bikes we have tested. Outright acceleration is on par with 250cc bikes and better than the 200cc bikes. On the highway, at speeds of around 85-90kmph, the R15 v3.0 returned a fuel economy at par with the 160cc bikes and better than other 200cc bikes. Apart from the slight vibrations felt through the handlebars at around 5000rpm and again at around 8000rpm, refinement is pretty good. The softer front suspension soaks up bad road surfaces well while the rear suspension seems to be a bit too reactive and bouncy over bumps and potholes. The R15 v3.0 tackles potholes well, though the rear transmits some of the shocks to the rider. A sharper rake and shorter trail make the front end sharper than before. Turn-ins are quick and effortless and overall stability through smooth corners is excellent. The optional rear Metzeler Sportec M7 radial tyre offers fantastic grip in all conditions and is worth the premium. A radial tyre for the front would be a fantastic addition.
YZF R15 V3 Design and Features
The all-new Yamaha R15 V3.0 is the perfect blend of practicality and outright performance compared to the first and second-gen R15’s. It’s race-orientation does hamper ergonomics to an extent which might not suit everyone's riding taste. Despite the 815mm tall seat, we did not have an issue placing both feet on the ground. Other than the clip-ons, which now feel lower, the low-set footpegs are comfortable and the rest of the bike too didn't give us any reason to complain. The new full-digital instrument cluster is large and easy to read on the go. The full-LED headlamps disappoint with their short throw and spread.
Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Competitors
Suzuki Gixxer SF Fi ABS: The Suzuki Gixxer SF Fi is certainly a value for money motorcycle. It has a good balance of attractive design and amazing engine refinement, which offers good performance while being comparatively frugal in terms of fuel consumption. And now, with the addition of ABS for a premium of Rs 6,000 over the standard bike, the Gixxer SF Fi certainly makes a strong case for itself.
Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 ABS: 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.
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.
