Yamaha R15 V3 Monster Edition 1500KM User Review – Shafin
Hello everyone. I’m Shafin. I’m currently living in Aftabnagar, Dhaka. Today I will share my experience with my currently used Yamaha R15 V3 Monster bike. Yamaha R15 V3 Monster is a premium sports bike from the brand Yamaha.
My first bike was a TVS Apache RTR 150. When I bought this bike, it felt like a dream come true. Being the only son of the family my father has never allowed me to buy any bike. After thousands of requests, My mother bought me this bike.
I could still feel the shivering of my heart when I bought my bike. Nothing else in the world gave me as much pleasure as my Tvs Apache RTR 150 gave to me! I rode it for about 8 thousand km and then I switched to Yamaha Fz-s v2 and the journey of my bike riding continues till now. And my current bike is a Yamaha R15 v3 Monster Edition.
The reason I love bikes –
- It saves time
- It’s affordable
- Riding gives me pleasure
I have been fascinated by sports bikes since childhood but never had a chance to buy them. I just bought my dream sports bike Yamaha R15 V3 Monster 3 months ago.
The thing I was considering before buying my bike is the looks of the bike and in my opinion, my bike is the most beautiful bike in Bangladesh.
I could have bought a Honda CBR/Suzuki GSX-R. But I used Yamaha FZS V2 before buying it. So I decided to stay with Yamaha. Yamaha R15 V3 Monster bike was priced at 4,95,000 BDT. I bought the bike from Yamaha Crescent Enterprise.
I have bought this bike with my own earnings. As my father never allowed me to buy a bike so I just told my mom that I am going to buy this bike today and sought her blessings. I went to the Yamaha Crescent Enterprise and purchased it.
I have rode Yamaha R15 before. But riding a sports bike which is owned by me is something exhilarating. It gave me goosebumps and feelings of joy that yes, now I own it.
This is a sports bike. This bike is very nice to look at. A different feeling works when I’m on the bike. Alhamdulillah. I feel happy whenever I ride it.
Features of Yamaha R15 V3 Monster bike –
- Dual ABS
- 6 gearbox
- Majestic AHO
- Detailed speedometer
I have serviced my bike twice so far. One after 350 km and the other after 800 km. Services are provided by the Yamaha 3S Center. In a word, they are professionals. They know how to take care of it.
I have ridden this bike for only 1500 km. The current mileage is 43.5 km. I’m using Yamalube. Only changed 2 times until now.
I take oil from a fixed pump which is in Cantonment. I never allow any local mechanic to touch my bike. If there’s a problem I simply go to Yamaha 3s.
I did not change any parts. Oh yes, I have changed the transparent windshield and shifted it with a black one just because it looks better on that, nothing else.
Some good aspect of the Yamaha R15 V3 Monster bike –
Looks – Yamaha R15 V3 looks stunning with its track bike inspired looks and class-leading design lines
Variable Valve Actuation – Yamaha is using VVA on their new 155.1cc, liquid-cooled and fuel-injected engine. This helps the R15 V3 deliver linear power throughout the rev band.
All Digital Console – This unit looks awesome and perfectly derived from race-spec options. The wide display offers a gear indicator, top speed, horizontally visible tachometer, and a VVA indicator.
Dual-Channel ABS – The system helps the rider stay safe on wet roads
Wide tires – Gives a better grip!
Some bad aspect of the bike –
I have only one complaint regarding headlight. The illumination offered by the LED headlight is poor in comparison to other bikes of this segment.
The throw is lower than decent and one may need to switch to a more powerful option in order to get better night riding quality. If you have no scarcity in budget and you want to give your money the best shot, Yamaha R15 V3 Monster is waiting for you. Thanks.
