Vehicle Overview
Yamaha R15 V3 is one among most sought out bikes of 150cc segment. It is undoubtedly more powerful than ever with this new update. Yamaha officially launched the R15 Version 3 in India @ Auto Expo 2018. The bike is powered by a 155.1cc engine, which develops maximum power of 19.30 HP @ 10,000 rpm and maximum torque of 15 NM @ 8500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The version launched in India is not equipped with USD front forks and ABS.Suzuki GSX-R150 was recently unveiled in Indonesia and it marks the comeback of a valuable brand in the most selling segment of bikes around the Asian countries. It uses a fuel injected, water cooled motor and weighs just 126 kg, without fluids. The aerodynamic design is shared with the GSX-R125 and seems fully inspired from the liter class GSX-R1000. GSX-R150 may take some time for its Indian market entry while offers 5 mouth watering shades in Indonesian market. GSX-R150 generates maximum power of 18.90 Bhp @ 10,500 rpm and maximum torque of 14 NM @ 9000 rpm. The sport bike uses LED headlight, key-less ignition system and digital instrument console as its key features. If launched in India, GSX-R150 would be competing with the likes of Yamaha R15 and Honda CBR150R.NA
