With the introduction of the new MT-15 V2.0 in our market, Yamaha Motor India has refreshed its portfolio. The current version of the roadster receives significant mechanical advancements over its predecessor, and we’ve compiled a list of the motorcycle’s best features.
The new MT-15 V2.0 keeps the single-pod projector-style headlight with twin DRLs at the front, muscular fuel tank, step-up seat, and flat handlebar found on the prior model. The upgraded color palette of the new model, on the other hand, includes two new and two old paint possibilities. Cyan Storm (new), Racing Blue (new), Ice Fluo-Vermillion, and Metallic Black are among them. All paint options include a colour match for the alloy wheels.
The new MT-15 is missing a few crucial features seen on the YZF-R15 V4’s fully faired twin. The quick shifter and the traction control system are two of them. The cockpit, on the other hand, gets a Bluetooth-enabled instrument cluster that works with the Y-Connect App and connects to a smartphone. On the smartphone, this feature provides access to maintenance suggestions, parking location, fuel consumption, malfunctions, revs dashboard, and ranking. The dashboard, on the other hand, shows call, e-mail, and SMS alerts as well as the state of the phone’s battery.
The new MT-15 V2.0 retains the same BS6-compliant 155cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that delivers 18.2bhp at 10,000rpm and 14.1Nm of peak torque at 7,500rpm. The VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) technology is retained in the motor, which is connected to a six-speed gearbox. The assist and slip clutch mechanisms in the transmission continue to be loaded.
A suspension configuration improvement is included with the new Yamaha MT-15 V2.0, in addition to a revamped color palette and an upgraded cockpit. This involves the replacement of the old model’s conventional front forks with 37mm upside-down forks. The rear mono-shock, on the other hand, is still preload-adjustable. Single discs on each wheel handle braking duties, and unlike the YZF-R15 V4.0, the safety net consists of a single-channel ABS. Finally, the box-section swingarm has been replaced with an aluminum unit inspired by MotoGP.
The pricing of the new Yamaha MT-15 V2.0 is Rs 1.60 lakh. The old model, on the other hand, cost Rs 1.46 lakh. The motorcycle gains enhanced hardware, better functionality, and a new colour palette as a result of the price increase.
Yamaha recently announced the debut of the MT-15 Version 2.0 in India, with a price tag of Rs 1.60 lakh. In addition, the redesigned motorcycle now comes in four new color options.
- The Metallic Black paint scheme is the most economical, and unlike the previous all-black version, it now features a silver ‘MT’ badge and graphic on the false intakes. The MT-15 V2 is also available in Yamaha’s classic Racing Blue color with color-matched wheels.
- The motorcycle’s Ice Vermillion color scheme has also been modified, and now includes hints of vermillion in its graphics in addition to the wheels. If you prefer something a little more flashy, Yamaha has the new MT-15 V2 in Cyan Storm. The MT-15 is decked out in cyan wheels and logos, which contrast nicely with the silver and black base paint.
- At Rs 1.61 lakh, these three color schemes for the MT-15 are slightly more expensive. All of the colors, on the other hand, complement the MT-15 V2’s new golden fork bottles and upside-down forks. In addition, the redesigned motorcycle features a new aluminum swingarm, which replaces the old model’s box-type assembly.
- It also comes with a Bluetooth-connected instrument cluster, which is a carryover from the R15 V4. The MT-15’s engine and other components, however, remain unchanged. It is powered by a 155cc single-cylinder engine with liquid cooling and Variable Valve Technology.
