A prominent YouTuber has created a drag race competition between a Yamaha MT15 V3 and an R15 V4. Both these might be from the same manufacturer but there are subtle differences making this challenge quite interesting indeed. Vloggers often adopt the method of drag race to compare the performances of two vehicles. In fact, we have also seen them do this challenge with cars. However, we would like to warn our readers to never do such races with your own bikes. This could be extremely dangerous not just for yourself but also for the machine. With that disclaimer out of the way, let us take a look at the details of this competition.

The video has been captured by Shahil 5722 vlogs on YouTube. The YouTuber showcases four black bikes that belonged to his friends. For this particular video, they decided to choose the MT 15 V3 and R 15V4. For this, they arrive at a secluded location with a long stretch of empty road. In the first attempt, the YouTuber takes the MT 15V3 while his friend rides the R 15V4. At the start of the race, the former takes a lead for a brief amount of time but was quickly overtaken by the latter. It remained so for the entire duration of the race.

Interestingly, both these motorcycles come powered by a 155-cc engine that generates 18.1 hp in both cases while 14.1 Nm (MT15) and 14.2 Nm (R15) of peak power and torque respectively. Also, both these bikes have a 6-speed manual transmission with assist and slipper clutch. Hence, the specifications are almost identical. The only difference is the fact that the R15 has a fairing which helps with the aerodynamics and wind resistance. We reckon that was the deciding factor between the two.
