Spares are a bit expensive - No complaints though

Engine - The engine is sweet. Rev it upto 7k and you will know

Need to rev it upto 5k at least to get some performance. So it is a bit difficult to ride in the city

Brakes - Nissin brakes provide really good stopping power and feedback

Front tire is a bit difficult to get - Had to ride 200 kms one way to get my front tire replaced.

R15 v3 vs R15 v2 which is better (Editor Choice) ?

R15 V3 uses better tires when compared to the present version. The front measures 100/80-17 while the rear used on V3 is massive 140/70-17. This adds more traction to R15 as a newly developed high-performance engine sends much more power to the rear wheel in comparison to the old version.
