Yamaha YZF R15 V3 Highlights

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.

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.

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.

ZigSays

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.
