The Honda CBR150R will soon receive a facelift but we think that the prices would also rise with the upcoming update. The Yamaha R15 V2.0 also has been around for quite some time now but has a huge fan following due to its unmatched performance. The Suzuki Gixxer 155 is a fresh product and comes equipped with company’s Suzuki Eco Performance (SEP) technology which is claimed to deliver performance along with fuel efficiency.

    Ruling has it Price as well which is 30k more, Ruling need high maintenance as well.. No doubt R15 is a masterpiece as I too own One, However, SUZUKI Gixer SF with 2 valve, No FI system took me too 131km any time, fuel economy of atleat 39- 42 kmpl at top speed. And the Best part , you can drive comfortably at 30km/h speed on 5th gear thanks to the linear powerful Torque…Just Imagine if Suzuki rebuild GIXER BY Giving 4valve and FI sysytem , R15 or CBR needs to RETHINK!

    I own the Suzuki Gixxer SF and she is the best machine I have driven so far. I have also tested the R15 v2.0 but later on I was having a back pain complaint. SF is a complete package in every aspect and she is also a track tool. Actually, the Suzuki Gixxer SF is now a revolutionary track tool.

    P.S. : i am not favoring sf cz i own it but yes what I have observed the things of this beauty piece
