Yamaha Sniper 150

The Yamaha Sniper 150 boasts of a very aggressive bodywork, especially at the front, which does give it an edgy appeal of a premium sportsbike. In addition to it, there are a couple of design elements like sleek daytime running lamps on the front apron and alloy wheels do give it a modern visual appeal.

Positioned as a premium cub class bike, there are some features which do try to give the Yamaha Sniper 150 a premium advantage over others in its class. The daytime running lamps at the front, alloy wheels, part digital instrument console, and key shutter mechanism do aid in making the Yamaha Sniper 150 a class above.

The four-stroke, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 149.7cc engine in the Yamaha Sniper 150 produces 15.4PS of power and 13.8Nm of torque. While these figures do make the Yamaha Sniper 150, the most powerful cub class bike in its class, the refinement levels of this engine too a notch higher than the competition

The Yamaha Sniper 150 has disc brakes at both the ends – 245mm front and 203mm rear, which give it the best-in-class braking capabilities

Yamaha YZF R15

The new generation Yamaha YZF R15 has got a tremendous road presence, thanks to its sharp design language which is a straight derivative of the flagship Yamaha YZF R1. The front fascia with sleek LED headlamps as well as sporty rear end with LED tail lamp, along with sharply styled side profile gives it a much needed big bike appeal.

The four-stroke, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 155cc engine of the Yamaha YZF R15 is by far the best 150cc engine on a motorcycle till date, for the performance and refinement it offers. With variable valve actuation, forged pistons and enhanced cooling system, the R15 feels energetic to ride in whatever the engine rpm is

Compared to the previous generation model, the new Yamaha YZF R15 is loaded with all the bells and whistles which a premium 150cc motorcycle should come with. The LED lights at front and rear, revamped and much informative fully digital instrument console and upside-down front forks do give it the feel of an expensive motorcycle

Yamaha Sniper 150

While the front apron of the Yamaha Sniper 150 does make it look very aggressive and sporty, the rear portion of this cub class bike makes it look a bit puny and too slim as compared to the front. Also, the skinny tires do further reduce the muscularity of it.

For a product which is pitched as an urban commuter, the lack of luggage hooks and an under-seat storage compartment do cut the practicality of the Yamaha Sniper 150. For a premium commuter, the Yamaha Sniper 150 lacks the crucial feature of LED headlamp, which is gradually becoming a norm in even many of lower-priced scooters

Yamaha YZF R15

While the LED headlamps at the front look very appealing with their white lighting pattern and sleek design, they do not have much powerful throw especially in darkest of conditions. Also, the daytime running lamps on the sides too are not much noticeable in bright daylight

Like the previous generation models, the Yamaha YZF R15 has a slightly uncomfortable pillion seat, which is too heightened for shorter pillion riders

The sporty suspension setup works wonders in making the Yamaha YZF R15 a great cornering machine. However, it is slightly stiff for tackling daily urban riding, which when taking the aggressive riding ergonomics into account, makes it slightly uncomfortable to ride in daily traffic conditions
