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.
It has been always an headache in dealing with the mechanics and supervisor over there in the Yamaha authorised service center THE NELLIKUPPAM INDUSTRIES located in the sub urban VILLUPURAM district of tamil nadu the complaint will be tedious if i start to list out the things right from the day one so highlighting only the important things 1)in 2020 February approached the service center for hearing a weird noise from the engine and the vva was activated in the 7000 rpm instead of 7500 rpm,the supervisor said it was okay but after another 2 weeks the sound became worse by March first week and again went to the service center and asked for the service engineer availability and they said he will arrive only once a month ,and left the bike over there but the service engineer did not arrive at all ,so i asked the mechanics to look over the problem and it took almost three weeks to solve the problem.regarding this i have already filed a complaint online but no proper response was found2)again a coin ringing noise was coming from the engine and went to the service center and again asusual they said it was normal but again after two weeks the engine fault sign in the diplay is blinking if they had recognize the issue and resolved earlier this would have not become this worse
Hi All, 27th Aug'2019 I purchased my Dark Machine MT15 B4, My Previous bike was Yamaha R15 V1, After sold my R15, I'm just really confused to buy which bike to solve my purpose - Daily Commute & I love Bike Touring for all-terrain once in a year. Then I found the one Yamaha MT15, Last year I ride from Kolkata to Arunachal -Tawan on my machine, I really love to share about this machine - Good 3 digit respectable speed up to 135Km/Hr, One of the most that I love it's fuel economy approx my bike average meter reading shown 2.0/100Km which comes to 50Km/Lt milage. Good Suspension & it's riding position for long travel. It's very easy to handle on any bumpy road, off-road & good road too due to its weight. Slipper Clutch & VVA technology works awesome - you can feel the power output after 7K RPM. But like in every good quality there must some bad too. What I personally feel. 1. The fuel tank is not enough for any long travel - total capacity 10Lt - 8Lt main & 2Lt reserve and which need to be there for Fi Fuel Pump. Fuel Tank must be around 12Lt 2. The headlight is good enough for city ride but fades away on the highway you need more extra lights for the highway on this bike. Those 2 drawbacks which I found on my recent trips approx 3600Km done. KOL - ARUNACHAL -KOL.
Let me be frank on this topic . Have been watching lot's of videos and researching on MT15 in india . The price is a bit high compared to the R15 because of the lack Cast Aluminium Swing Arm , all LED lights , USD fork and dual disk brakes . MT is cheaper by only few thousand rupees but i would love that to be almost around 15000 compared to the R15 .. But the best part is the engine . Let it be on low rpm or high the engine out performs all the 150cc - 160cc bikes in india , it also gives a strong compitition to few 200cc bikes too . Secondly the mileage 40-45 plus mileage is promised with no drop in performance and i don't believe there is any other bike in the market which can out run the MT 15 in terms of performance with mileage . MT has a weight of 138kgs which is very light which helps the rider to do easy flicks in the cities and High rpm performance ensures high speed in highways .. 10 ltr fuel tank is a bit on the less side compared to other bikes in the market but the mileage of 45+ ensures a long distance travel with a full tank .. Take a test drive and if your heart tells you this is the one for you go for it . Money is nothing but figures of zeros and ones .. bike is a feeling and an emotion thats personal..
Review after first Service 1000km in 20 days After sales service is OkaySeat Comfort: It is Good for City ride , needs extra seat cushion for long ride (Because it's street fighter/ city commuter sports bike)Suspensions: soft in slower speed, stiffer in high speed because of linked mono suspensionPerformance: pickup is so good (after all Master of Torque). you won't regret at any time in city mild traffic and highway.Build Quality: Premium\Average build quality, Mud guards are not useful at all. Needs extension for front mud guardLittle Vibrations feel after 65kmph.. mirrors are also vibrating above 70kmph... I don't know why!? I didn't hear this in YouTube review.Big Instrumental console, DRL, Head light, Ice flip vermilion colour are eye catcher.Instrumental console's features are very useful (live kmpl, avg kmpl, avg kmp/100L , trip1 trip2 tripF(auto Reserved mode), Time)Also we can hang/lock Double D ring helmet directly using under seat Helmet Holder.Wrost thing is no space for any other than documents under the seat.Milage: I am receiving 45kmpl in heavy traffic of Mumbai, 56kmpl in city and 67kmpl on highway with speed/extra premium fuel on MT 15 bs6 in Mumbai.. that's really amazing 🤗❤️
