Yamaha R15 V3 vs Yamaha MT-15 (Drag Race Video): The drag race between Yamaha MT-15 and R15 V3 has brought impressive results for those who were confused between the selection process. The video clears that those who need a burst of acceleration can go for the streetfighter while fans travelling highway distances above 100 kph can go for the R15 V3. The aerodynamics instantly kick-in when the rider crosses 100 kph on the speedometer, leaving MT-15 struggling to achieve the top speed at the same pace as the R15 V3.

The rider neatly gets behind the windscreen while the one on the MT-15 will need to add a visor to keep the winds away, that too not as effective as the sharp fairing of the R15 V3. The top speed for both the bikes will stay around 140 kph on the speedometer, with body weight playing an important role here. The MT-15 comes for INR 1.36 lakh while those considering Yamaha R15 will need to spend INR 1.40 lakh. The prices mentioned here are ex-showroom India.

A drag race between TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and Hero Xtreme 200R has cleared how well both the motorcycles have been made by the respective brands. The comparison also clears the position of the newly launched Xtreme in front of its biggest rival. The drag race starts with Xtreme 200R giving tough competition to the Apache till 60 kph. Suddenly, the power surge from Apache’s engine is witnessed with a clean gap between both the riders.

As Hero has itself claimed a great 0-60 kph time for their motorcycle, it seems like doing 100 kph is also not that bad. The motorcycle struggles to gain speed once the 100 kph mark is crossed while the Apache can be seen cutting the wind and getting an even wider gap in the triple-digit speed range. Apache 200 is seen touching 124 kph in this sprint, with the same rider on the saddle that was earlier on the Xtreme. Both the bikes are offered with a 5-speed gearbox.
