BS6 Yamaha R15 V3 Vs Honda CBR150R (New Model)

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 at the Auto Expo 2018 while the new CBR150R is still under the expected list of products for the Nepalese market. Honda has a great chance here as they could revive the CBR150R in Nepal and bring some real competition to the similarly-priced bikes.

We are not sure whether Honda CBR150R will launch in Nepal 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.
