Q. How much is the top speed of MT 15 BS4 & MT 15 BS6?
  • Mt accelerates faster till 110kmph but because of better aerodynamics R15 flies away after 110kmph on highway. R15 has no competition with the pickup of MT in the city and comfortable riding position.The rpm of both bikes redlines at 11300 rpm. The rpm of MT is not locked but because of bigger sprocket it accelerates faster and looses on top speed.Also the gearing of MT feels shorter than R15.

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
  • With this 2 bike if you look for best mileage and best initial pulling i will ask you to go for MT15 and if you look for power and best street fighter i will prefer ns200

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.

    I am riding this bike for 2 months and the bike is just rocks. The bike is very powerful according to its segment, sometimes I feel that I am riding a 200cc bike or more. Some pros as per my views-1. Initial pickup is excellent.2. Midrange is mindblowing. Sometimes after midrange pull, you can feel, extra pickup..that might be because of VVA.3. At high-end it is smooth..Though I didn't test it beyond 100kmph. But at the high end, you don't feel any vibration.4. Sporty design. Look and feel is class in its segment.5. Clutch is very light. As MT15 has an A&S clutch, no rear wheel locking at high gear & low-speed combination, and aggressive downshifting.6. Front braking is awesome, the rear one is ok ok.7. mileage is good.8. Side stand engine cut-off feature enabled.Some cons as per my views--1. Front mudguard should be a little extended. The current one causes problems during the rainy season.2. The pillion seat should have a properly designed grab handles(The current one looks good but is not too useful). Also, the seat could be a little extended(Though most of the time I ride this bike with a pillion and we don't face any such problem. For two healthy persons, the seat length is not suitable for long rides).3. Yamaha should use some kind of radiator guards like KTM Or Dominar.Overall MT15 BS6 is a perfect choice.

    Performance is good, The bike riding posture is straight and it will not harm your shoulders & back after long rides. The power of the bike is quite realistic and immeasurable, Mt gives an immense amount of power to be needed for daily use for city rides as well as on highways. The average is quite good, After your 3rd servicing, It will give an average of about 35 km/h. And, Lastly about it's looks- I had purchased mt15 ice fluo vermillion, I.E orange alloys with a white finish on the tank and trust me that look just awesome and this color variant of mt15 is eye-catching & once you take this on-road, Many people will stare your bike more than you. The headlamps are good, But when you will be riding this bike at night on highways, you will definitely feel the light's are not worth it. Anyway, Here's my small review about my mt15 ice fluo vermillion bs6 single-channel abs and one more thing, Mt seat is too small to fit for 3 riders, So tripling can be dangerous although, Rider and pillion seat is quite comfortable to thank you Yamaha for making us feel proud a proud mt owner.

    Everything Is Good In Terms Of Performance, Riding Dynamics,Features N Mileage. 1st Negative Point Yamaha Should Offer Dual Channel ABS because The Range Of This Motorcycle Is 1.40 Lakhs N Secondly The Most Important Feedback Is The Length Of Pillion Seat√ With Grab Rails N To Be Honest It's Really Pathetic. If This Issue Is Not Fixed Yamaha Will Definitely Disappoint All The MT15 Lovers N Will Regret It With The Company Sales For Sure.

    Yamaha mt 15 is a complete package.The bike has everything that i wanted with a bike for a long and comfortable journey.The seats are very comfortable for both driver and pillion for a long drive.The bike is very slim and helps to drive at high speed and in traffic at ease.It has led drls, Headlight, And tail light which looks very good at night.I wished it had dual-channel abs but a single channel also works just fine.
