    To my experience, cbr does not cross 160.
    And small modifications in r15 ecu and engine gives enormous power and top speed. Use certified deytona parts to retain your warrenty. Plus. Who needs a bike with 28 to 30 city mileage. Cbr is huge. But it is not value for money. I lost mine, buying one.....

    R15 is real value for money.... I feel guilty coz I brought cbr

    cbr is much better in performance and safety.
    Though cbr is 250cc it give a good mileage of 28 km/per ltre.
    The sitting position of cbr is good enough for a long ride.
    Someone was talking about daytona to fit in r15 to increase the performane . I would like to tell him that Daytona cost more than Rs-30000 and that makes the R15 costs Rs 150000 and I dont think to spend Rs 150000 for a 150cc bike in the era where we can get 250cc bike at that price

    but R15 looks better and has good cornering quality than cbr.. here cc doesnt matter coz r15 has got that technology which dares to compete a 250...cbr is more faster but who cares about a slight fast characteristics when we get more good looking bike at a lower cost

    i just sold my r15 to book the cbr250r. Frankly, i was tired of the yamaha...

    i think yamaha r15 v2 is better than cbr.. even if cbr is more powerful it is like a 250 cc bike with a top wack of 160.. r15 being a 150cc engine still crosses 140+..with a excellent riding comfort..
    so paying 40000 more jus for a bit power and bit more little diff in top speed is jus a waste of money... instead of that i wud go for ninja even if it cost a lot with a 32bhp

    I agree Yamaha r15 is a good bike but not good as cbr 25O.In above comments they said that cbr doesn't cross 160 I to have a Honda cbr and I have crossed the speed of 185kmph + on the bangalore mmysore corridor and my friend who was riding r15 said me that his bike could not cross 132kmph and he aslo said that after 5500 rpm the bike starts vibranting which cbr doesn't even after 111000 rpm.I also have Yamaha Rx135 which I got it for 48k and I spent another 8k for mod which included expansion chamber which goes 0-60 in 3.85 seconds and 0-100 in 7.1 seconds and toospeed of 140kmph which is faster than R15
