These will be the first motorcycles in the Indian market to comply with the new norms

Yamaha has launched the updated FZ-X and FZ-S FI V4, head here for more details. The 2023 iteration of the Yamaha R15 V4, R15M and MT-15 V2 have been launched with new features as well.

The Yamaha MT-15 V2.0 update finally has a date, and that is the 13th of F…ebruary. Hehe! And it will be joined by the updated R15 V4 and the FZ-X. We’ve received an invite from the Japanese marque, one that says ‘A New Chapter Unfolding’, which likely points towards the updation of its bike range. With it, the bikes are all set to comply with the OBD 2 norms that’ll come into effect from April 1, 2023. According to them, vehicles will now have to comply with emissions in real time and not just in laboratory conditions. 

Spy shots of the same have even surfaced online. The R15 V4 finally gets the 'Aggressive Grey' colour that was launched in Indonesia earlier this year. The only difference is that this one gets golden alloys, which, in my opinion, look even more menacing. 

If that sounded nice, wait till you hear that the YR15M is all set to get a TFT console as well as LED indicators. Even its naked sibling, the MT-15 will get LED blinkers and dual-channel ABS, something we thoroughly missed when it was updated last year.

The RTO document of the updated bike that surfaced online last month gave us a clear picture of what’s new in the updated bike. The 155cc VVA-equipped liquid-cooled engine’s 18.4PS and 14.1Nm have remained unchanged. Other specs including the kerb weight too, haven’t seen any changes.

Pictures of the updated MT-15 V2, FZ-X and the R15 V4 have surfaced online, revealing that the models will flaunt new paint schemes as well. While the FZ-X dons the navy blue paint scheme with golden alloy wheels, R15 V4 will feature a new ‘Aggressive Grey’ colour and the MT-15 will get a new black colour with orange alloys.

The MT-15 V2.0, R15 V4 and FZ-X are all set to become India’s first OBD-2-compliant bikes. Each bike could demand Rs 3,000 to Rs 5,000 over their current pricing.
