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
Another winner in the series definitely better than v2 in which Yamaha compromised on performance for looks.This time v3 is a racing machine in a true sense by styling ergonomics sporty riding position race kits. built quality and a descent mileage.Safety measures like dual channel abs is givenminor changes recently to make it bs6 complaint. Handling cornering ability made it the class first and made rivals a hard time watching its sales figures Thanks.
nothing to sayit's just amazing..! 😍
It's comfort in not much good..
i didnt check about his mileage... maybe 40 above..... iam so happy with that. becoz i got my dream bike.
Best in the segment it really is a beast 🔥
Great bike compare to the price and the thing i like most in it is it's ignition, according to me every Yamaha bike has good ignition as far as I know

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.
