Fully faired sport bikes in Nepal

Fully faired bikes were primarily designed to perform on the race tracks. However, the public’s craze for their aesthetic design and better performance pushed multiple companies to get into the fully faired game–by coming up with affordable versions of this increasingly popular bike type. Even though this type of bike has lower ground clearance, reduced maneuverability, and is more prone to damage, it is one of the best selling models–evidently owing to their aesthetics.

Fairing bikes seems less practical for daily city commutes as they are hard to maneuver in traffic congestion. However, they perform great on highways. Their aerodynamic design reduces air resistance and generates more downforce and traction control. Furthermore, the bikes are efficient as well.

Here are some fully faired sport bikes that are popular in Nepal.

Yamaha R15-series

The R15 model first made an appearance in Nepal around the 2010s and it gained popularity quickly among Nepalis, largely due to its sports-fairing body design. The company then successively launched its second and third iteration, v2 and v3, through 2017. Recently, the bike’s latest model, v4 and M, were launched with great anticipation.

Currently, Yamaha sells three R15 models: the v3, v4, and M, in Nepal. The bike is powered by a 155 cc liquid-cooled, SOHC, engine–mated to a six-speed gearbox–that generates a power of 18.1 hp and a torque of 14.2 Nm.
