    Hello Kishore, I would like to suggest to pickup an R15 rather than RTR.

    R15 Technology is way far then RTR. One day I got a chance to take a small sprint of Joel's R15 and believe me its the BEAST of the BEASTs.

    Joel would be the best person to ask, I am sure he will suggest R15.

    How can you compere a YAMAHA to a Tvs???lol
    There is no question of top speed being asked. In the hands of a good rider both the bikes are very capable. The R15 is a very good bike due to other characteristics (mainly mechanical in nature) than because of the top speed.

    IMO Performance wise both RTR and R15 are equally capable and top speed, acceleration purely depends on the amount of Joeling you do on it.

    No to forget, Joeling is more inclined towards R15 than an RTR. visit his website for more info raceconcepts.in

    Very true. More options to pimp an R-15 than an RTR. 4 valves and Liquid cooling are the main advantages in the R-15.

    Id suggest R15,simply because,i believe R15 has more goodies from Joel than RTR.

    Try Joels R15, and you will never touch any other bike. I offered to buy his bike, Alas, he wont sell

    Apart from Joels R15, I think R 15 would be a better buy, and with Joels ECU and FFE, bottom end torque will be taken care off.

    Rest Joel can answer better.

    The RTR is a budget mod bike. With a little more dough, the r15 is a cracker indeed. The RTR gives you a lot of oomp for what you pay and the R15 will take you to the next levels. The RTR will be a lot more expensive to work on, since its 2-valve to match the R15's grunt.
