Should You Buy It?
If you are a die-hard Yamaha race bike fan, R15 is the best motorcycle one could currently buy with a 150 cc engine.The ABS version is too close to Bajaj Dominar while non ABS falls above the category of naked Yamaha FZ25. If not interested in either of them, RS200 is a perfect choice.
