On hills, mountains, or steep places, vehicles require high power at lower RPMs. This allows for the vehicle to boost itself up. The Yamaha R15 V3 has power delivery at a very high RPM. Which is why sometimes it faces difficulties where adventure bikes don’t. But in Bangladesh there are very few motorable roads that require this boost.
On the other hand, bikes such as the Lifan KPT 150, the Aprilia Terra 150, and the Honda CB150X are quite suitable for these kinds of hills, as they have power delivery at lower RPMs and can easily climb hills and mountains with pillions.
So in most cases, we could say that the R15 V3 does have enough power for hill rides and long touring with pillions. However, sometimes it might be a bit difficult both for the rider and the pillion.
