The Honda CBR 150R MotoGP Edition is easily among the highest quality and expensive bikes currently available in Bangladesh. Not only is this 150-cc bike powerful, it is built to be robust yet delicate in design. It ticks all the boxes when it comes to performance with elegance.
As a motorbike brand, Honda delivers on all grounds to provide a well-rounded experience to customers. It often cuts down on extremely high speed to focus on better user experience in terms of riding comfort, fuel economy, and lower maintenance costs.
Yamaha R15 V3
Yamaha motorbikes are well-known for their high level of performance and endurance. The Yamaha R15 V3 is dubbed “the performer”. Imported by ERS Global, Yamaha R15 V3 is a high performing beast which is available in the Bangladesh motorcycle market for BDT 5,30,000.
The avid bike enthusiast might recall that Yamaha R15 V3 was once the only available pure sports-bike available in Bangladesh, before the Honda CBR 150R came along. The sheer performance of this beast is unrivaled. Even with the emergence of the likes of Honda CBR 150R among others, with similar power and price tag, this Yamaha continues to be one of the elite bikes in the country.
Yamaha R15 V3 Highlights:
- Engine: 155 cc
- Power: 19.04 BHP & 14.7 NM of Torque

The price tag can easily fetch you a Toyota or even a very old Mercedes, but you will enjoy unrivaled performance on the road with this 2-wheeler.
Until the permit is available for a higher cc bike in the roads of Bangladesh, this will probably remain as one of the the highest performer and a great value for money.
