Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which one is better MT15 or NS200? And what is the mileage of NS200?
  • Among the two, we would suggest you to go with the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 if you are looking for a affordable sporty streetfighter. The bike employs a 199.5cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine. It churns out 24.5PS at 9750rpm and 18.5Nm at 8000rpm. The NS200 offers sporty handling, a smooth 6-speed gearbox and brilliant performance at an affordable price point. On the other hand, if you want better mileage, a versatile 155cc engine, compact design and attractive styling, then the Yamaha MT 15 would be a better option. However, the compact riding posture might be a bit too tight for large riders. What is also disheartening is the poor switchgear and build quality as well as the lack of dual-channel ABS. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read More: - Bajaj Pulsar NS200 vs Yamaha MT 15

Q. Which is best XSR 155 or MT 15?
  • It would not be fair to give a verdict here as the Yamaha XSR 155 is yet to be launched. Moreover, if you are looking for a naked street bike which is sharp, is light, and can be a hoot to commute then the Yamaha MT 15 could be a good option. For the availability, we would suggest you to please connect with the nearest authorized dealership in your city as it depends on their stock book. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
Q. How much is the top speed of MT 15 BS4 & MT 15 BS6?
  • Replace the chain sprockets with the one on the R15 v3 and the top speed will be increased
  • MT15 can go up to 138KM/Hr top due to its riding position & locked ECU. The same engine R15V3 go up 155Km/Hr.
  • I got 138KM/Hr top speed on my Yamaha MT15 on my bike trip to Arunachal -Tawang
