This review written after ride the bike Based on the owners about   Yamaha R15 V.2 VS Honda CBR


The new Yamaha YZF-R15 is an absolute cracker when it to design, with the R6 inspired section and the new ‘shelves’ in the front making it look fresh and While the Honda CBR 150R conservative and the design is inspired by its sibling of the family. Every is smaller than that of its sibling.

The headlight, stubby the smaller tail light and makes it definitely look a smaller CBR, which the bike a head turner With its distinct graphics and options, it stands out in the crowd. But the pageant award goes to the R15.

Instrument Cluster and Gear 

Both bikes have an tachometer and a digital speedometer but again the Yamaha R15 V.2 scores its high quality switch and host of features it has to display on its cluster. The switch gear in the is massive disappointment because a straight lift from capacity bikes of the Honda and lacks the engine kill The pass light switch decades old too.

The Honda makes do with a temperature and digital clock to display from the regular trip-meter and meter. But the CBR150R’s digital shines with an all around black finish and in the night the RPM glows very brightly. grabs the attention of the commuters you.

Speedometer of Yamaha R15 V.2

Both the Yamaha R15 V.2 VS Honda CBR 150 . with the 150cc, liquid-cooled fuel-injected, 4-valve engines and is where the similarities end. the R15 comes with an SOHC the CBR150R comes with a unit. This is the sole which makes these poles apart.

The R15 produces 17 PS of power at 8000 RPM and 15 Nm Of at 7500 RPM which you might is pretty high in the revv The CBR150R produces a power of 18 PS at a 10,500 RPM and a low 12.66 Nm of torque at RPM, which on paper the CBR150R slower than the R15 they weigh almost the and power comes at very RPM .But as soon as these get on the road, things change. the Honda CBR150R crosses RPM, it makes all its power and 6000 RPM it’s as good as and the engine is tuned for drive-ability than performance in city .

But no what, the RPM stays around so you can easily make progress by at around 7000-8000 RPM in city. gearing of the CBR150R makes the easily rev to a stratospheric 11,700 RPM where it makes all its power and is than the R15 to 0-100 km/hr by 1 but slower than the R15 when it to 0-60 km/hr. The CBR150R one of the VTEC, the technology found in cars which no doubt it a pick for those fun track or cornering hard on a winding roads.

Honda CBR 150 R

The Yamaha R15 is more practical to live with, when it to drive-ability in city. It has superior low end when compared to the Honda The screaming SOHC engine is a hoot to ride and loves to But it lacks the fun quotient which the gives while riding

The new V2.0 is tuned to be a much street bike than the one which was specifically made track performance in mind. The R15 and even have the same top but it is the baby CBR which will put a grin on your face you’re riding hard.


Let’s come to first, both have and rear disc brake and both have superb offering great feedback them to come to a halt where you want them to. because the dimensions, weight and the diameter are identical. Ride on both motorcycles is good, bikes dismiss small very easily, but it’s the bumps which make the uncomfortable because of the dedicated position offered by both bikes.

The riding position on the CBR150R is on. It is comfortable for those long once you get used to the bike and good feedback to the rider

But it’s the Yamaha R15 with its riding position which massive feedback to the rider and the rider push harder and into corners every time. The V2.0 has had lot of changes it comes to dynamics. The weight has been changed with weight on the front, extra wheelbase thanks to the aluminum arm and the fatter front and the rear

All this has made the bike stable around the corners before but it takes a bit more than before to turn of the 55 mm increase in wheelbase. It’s no but it doesn’t feel agile in directions like the previous

The Honda CBR150R though has mm wheelbase and with a fairly position and twin tube frame chassis handles front suspension has a bit more then we expected. However, still fun to chuck into and is easy when coming out of the at high speeds because of the top end it generates with utmost a true CBR characteristic.

But it’s the tires which are a let down, switching to soft tyres of the same dimensions generate more confidence in the Both bikes should the rear suspension as the factory come on extremely softer
