Yamaha R15 V3 vs Honda CBR150R (New Model)

Yamaha R15 V3 vs Honda CBR150R (Quick Comparison): Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 3.0 and the new Honda CBR150R are the closest possible rivals for 150cc premium performance segment. The R15 V3 made its official debut in India at the Auto Expo 2018 while the new CBR150R is still under the expected list of products for the Indian market. Honda has a great chance here as they could revive the CBR150R in India and bring some real competition to similarly priced bikes.

As the Yamaha R15 V3 is now available with ABS and priced at INR 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom), one can expect Honda to place the new model of the CBR150R ABS slightly lower for better competition. Honda has brought the quarter-litre CBR250R back and thus, the chances of CBR150R’s revival are now higher than ever.

We are not sure whether Honda CBR150R will launch in India or not. If it comes at the right time, buyers are suggested to choose one of them according to their needs. Strict speed lovers who ride once a month on track should blindly go for the Yamaha R15 V3 while those who ride for the leisurely purpose should consider the Honda CBR150R as it offers the best power-to-weight ratio in the everyday rpm range. Pricing will further decide the fate of CBR150R in India as higher displacement products are available at impressive prices.
