  • Yamaha YZF R15 V3
  • 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.

The user name 'Buddy' is set as the factory default, but it can be set to your name. To set the user name 1. Turn the main switch off. 2. Push and hold the 'RESET but-3. Turn the main switch on, and then release the 'RESET' button after four seconds. 4. When the first character starts flashing, push the 'SELECT' but- ton to change the character in the following order.

  • 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.

MT 15 User Reviews
  • 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.
