I own the MT-15 (international specification) and use it in the Philippines. Here are my PERSONAL comments. Odometer is currently @12,200 km. This is a one person bike, unless your pillion passenger is a spider monkey. (a) Best features are:Yamaha quality, technical prowess & dealer presence/support; powerful high-revving motor @ 10,000 rpm and 6-speed gear shift with slipper clutch; v. stable and safe handling even on rough highways. multi-function meter is replete with useful info; headlight is effective up to 50 kph. (b) My "neutral"opinions: seat is not comfortable beyond 1.5-to-2 hours at a time; rear wheel fender is too short to protect back of operator from getting mud-spattered in the rain; the pillion seat is unusable as there are no grab handles on the int"l spec model; the seat is1quite high and not recommended for short riders. (c) my negative comments: intl model does not have ABS brakes which is an attractive safety feature; handlebar location of the horn button is far to the right of the normal position on a bike...this is a design flaw in my opinion as 50% of the time my thumb can"t find the horn in emergency situations, even after 2,200 km!. (d) Other observations: I have no data on fuel consumption as I don't track it; to realize this bike's potential, operate the motor to it"s maximum 19 hp @ 10,000 rpm and max torque @ 8,500. THIS IS WHAT MAKES THIS BIKE SPECIAL. Note: it took me 2,000 km of use in order to loosen up the engine, achieve max output and deliver the fun factor; finally two of the 3 colour schemes are boring in my view---matte black and v. dark blue. I purchased the ice flo/silver gray model which I prefer. Handlebar mirrors are effective.

I"m a thin person with 5.4 height. I bought this as my first bike. Bike feels light , lighter then Gixxer 150, although Gixxer is lighter on paper. Performance wise it"s great, except braking. Braking is a bit lagging behind, there isn"t enough bite. One could brake hard at high speed. Very good beginner bike so far, clutch and gear shifts never were any trouble even though I just started riding. Cost cutting is so damn apparent. Switches like many said are bad. Pass switch gets stuck often. Rear suspension doesn"t allow preload adjustments. Comfort wise , I"m all good except foot pegs. My right foot becomes uncomfortable at longer rides. Few times I have noticed engine heat on my toes. If you want to carry a pillion this is not the bike for you. With a horizontal very small seat and great torque and weird grab rails, pillion is under constant pressure of falling behind. Also grab rails get dirty when you ride in rain. I guess tire hugger doesn"t help with keeping grab rails clean.I had a accident on this bike, bent front suspension and broke tank covers. Issuance helped , but service took long and service centers don"t have all the nuts and bolts. Even a Allen bolt , that"s on frame of MT 15 and R15 were a miss at service centers.Accessories? Your nearest service center probably hasn"t seen even a picture of the accessories released for this bike. Yamaha is sloppy and lazzy with accessories in India while MT comes with around 20+ accessories in Indonesia.In conclusion I would say this is a bike for beginners with cash. But Duke 125 is a better overall package. And FZ25 is King here.

It's a great bike if you want a power cruiser and a comfortable ride. There is no vibration even when you cruise at 100 kmph and there is no stress in the engine also. This is not a value for bike in fact this is a good bike with good mileage figure . If you want a value for bike go for ns200 or rtr 200 . But not in mind that this bike can give a mileage of about 50 to 55 which is very good to the power it is offering and it can be compared with ns200 and rtr 200 also it's performance is also similar to that bike. But mt has only single1channel abs which is a downside but it's more than enough for this bike . Well if you are buying ns 200 or1rtr200 you should know that their mileage is low as 40 and considering that MT 15 is a good package . And the best and the most important part is the look and style of the MT 15 and ns200 , rtr200 or any other bike under 2lakh can match with it's look(considering only naked sport).If you are a family guy then go for fz25 which is much better at comfort than any of these bikes.

its a out standing experience with MT-15,a small disappointment on price.international model it comes with USD forks,double channel ABS,and custom colors but Indian version is without them.The bike is a beast at 1st,2nd,3rd gears.we feel like its not a 150 segment bike. With its looks and power delivery It is exactly a dark warrior of japan.Especially the front view.About the metre console,it includes many information like,ODO,trip,gear,fuel,milege etc.. the exhaust note is same as R15 v3.

The bike feels overpriced and also equipped with only single channel abs. But despite those drawbacks it is an awesome performance bike in 150-200cc segment. I said 200 because it produces power of a 200cc bikes and even out performs some current 200cc bikes available in Indian market. It can do 140+ top speed and one can easily cruise in 90-110 range.Despite the awesome performance it gives a great mileage of 45-50, very easy to flick around traffic and taking U turns. Seat height is a bit high though, I"m 5"7 and I can handle it without much trouble. In one sentence:Awesome little monster MT.

I have brought this bike at one month ago. But after 1st free service I have noticed that rusted have been appeared on the body. Things quality of the body is too poor. Overall experience is good.
