Hello, TorqueInduction readers,
My name is Pavan (Age: 19 years). It was my dream from childhood to buy a bike. I frequently requested my parents to buy a bike for me. Finally, during my 1st year of degree, I got a green signal from my parents. I was totally confused which bike to buy and finally settled for a Yamaha R15 Version 2.0 (Blue Color) not bothering much about the mileage. I would like to take you to gist of the review without wasting much time introducing myself. Below are my views on the bike after riding it for over 2100Km.
Engine Performance: This 150cc machine has the capacity to produce 16.8 Bhp of power @8500rpm. Initially, you will not feel any power, but once you cross 6k rpm, the engine comes to life and you can feel the power. When I first bought the bike, engine used to overheat a bit. After my first service was done, the problem vanished. There’s no need to panic if your R15 V2 overheats before 1st service. Even though you ride your bike above 8k RPM, it won’t make any sort of weird noise.
Handling and Braking: Even though Yamaha has put wider tires and made the bike longer, the bike still retains the handling characteristics of the previous version. The bike is more of a track tool, and let’s not forget that the bike has been designed in such a way as to suit the circuit conditions.
Both, front and rear tires, have disc brakes, but I felt the front disc is the best R15 has got. If you suddenly apply the rear brake when the bike is above 60kmph, chances are there that your rear tyre may skid. So, always remember while applying brake, first apply the rear brake without applying much pressure on it and then slowly apply the front brake as much as you need to stop a bike.
Mileage: As far as I’ve noticed, it gives me around 35kmpl in the city and around 42kmpl on highway. The mileage may vary for others, as it also depends on the way you ride.
Design: I’m really very much impressed the way bike has been designed. Sometimes, my friends do say me that it looks like a R6. The rear seat has been kept quite high and small, which will be uncomfortable for the pillion rider. Front seat is comfortable and hard, making the rider to sit in a racing position and corner the bike in a much better way.
Overall, I’m very much satisfied with my bike and I’m not repenting for owing this machine.
