Specs & Features of MT 15 V2

Yamaha MT 15 V2 Latest Updates

The Yamaha MT15 is an entry-level streetfighter based on the R15. The naked bike looks quite sharp and aggressive with its chiselled fuel tank and muscular tank extensions. It also offers good performance to go with its aggressive looks. The MT15 is a fun bike that you can live with everyday, as well as take to your favourite hill roads on weekends.

What is the price of the MT 15?

The Yamaha MT15’s starting price is Rs 1,68,200 and goes up to Rs 1,73,500 (ex-showroom). It differs primarily between the colour options.

How many variants does the MT 15 have?

The Yamaha MT15 has three variants: base, DLX, and Monster Energy MotoGP. The base variant is available with two colour options: Dark Matte Blue, and Metallic Black, and misses out on Bluetooth connectivity and LED indicators. The DLX variant gets Bluetooth connectivity and LED turn indicators, and has 5 colour options: Racing Blue, Cyan Storm, Cyber Green, Ice Fluo-Vermillion, and Metallic Black. The standard variant also has coloured wheels. The Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition is the most expensive variant, and gets a special livery. Here’s variant-wise price breakdown of the Yamaha MT15:

Yamaha MT15 V2 Variants

Price (ex-showroom)

Base: Dark Matte Blue, Metallic Black

Rs 1,68,200

DLX: Racing Blue, Cyan Storm, Cyber Green, Ice Fluo-Vermillion, and Metallic Black

Rs 1,72,900

Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition

Rs 1,73,500

Which is the best variant of the MT15 to buy?

In our opinion, the DLX variant is the best one, with all the equipment and multiple colour choices. That said, if you are on a tight budget, the base variant is Rs 4700 cheaper, and you won’t be missing out on too much if you choose that either..

What is the best colour to buy in the MT15?

The Ice Fluo-Vermillion has to be one the best colourways for the MT15. The white tank with black body panels, orange accents and wheels make the MT15 look bold.

Is the MT15 a sports bike?

The Yamaha MT15 is based on the R15, which is a sports bike. This is a naked bike and has a slightly leaned-forward riding posture. The handlebar is slightly raised and close to the rider, but the foot pegs are mid-mounted and will have your feet under your thighs. That said, it gets the same engine as the R15, which makes it almost as fast in terms of performance. So while it’s not an out-and-out sports bike like the R15, it’s a great sporty naked.

Is the MT15 good for highway touring?

Yes, the MT15 can be used for highway touring. Apart from a comfortable seat that helps in long rides, it has a powerful engine too. The 155cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine makes 18.4PS and 14.1Nm and is mated to a six-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch and a quickshifter for upshifts. With that, it’s easy to ride on the highway and can cruise at highway speeds without any issue. With its quick acceleration, overtakes are easy too. Apart from that, Yamaha also has some optional accessories that can make highway rides more comfortable.

Is the MT15 a good bike for city use?

Unlike the R15, the MT15 is primarily meant to be an urban motorcycle. It’s quite nimble and easy to filter through traffic. Its light weight means you won't struggle moving in tight parking spaces or traffic jams. Its acceleration will help get off the line quickly.

Can the MT15 be a family bike?

While the MT15 is a comfortable bike for a pillion as well, not all family members might be okay riding on it. If you are looking to buy the MT15 as a primary bike in the family, it would be prudent to take your family members, who would regularly sit on the bike, for the test ride to understand how they feel. The rear part of the seat is a bit on the smaller side, and it’s slightly high, so women won’t be able to sit side-saddle on it comfortably. Apart from that, the MT15 can be used for almost any kind of rides – from your weekend rides to grocery runs.

Are there any heating issues in the MT15?

The MT15 has a relatively small capacity engine that doesn’t radiate as much heat as some of the bigger capacity bikes. Also, Yamaha has done a fantastic job of dissipating heat away from your legs, which means you won’t feel the heat as much. So even in start-stop traffic, the engine doesn’t heat up to concerning levels.

Is the MT 15 worth buying?

If you are in the market to buy a bike that looks aggressive, has good performance, is easy to ride, and won’t largely break your bank, the Yamaha MT15 is a good option. It's a brisk bike that will have you smiling every time you whack open the throttle or lean into the corner. It’s a bike that will make your dreary commutes exciting.

What are the alternatives to the MT15?

The KTM 125 Duke is the biggest challenger to the MT15. Apart from that, there are also the Honda Hornet 2.0, Bajaj Pulsar NS200, and the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V that you can consider.

Yamaha MT 15 V2 Pros and Cons

MT 15 V2 Advantages

Engine is well refined, Very agile and nimble, Design is very eye catching

MT 15 V2 Disadvantages

Lacks bottom end grunt, Suspension is too stiff, Pillion seat is nonexistent

MT 15 V2 Expert's Conclusion

The MT 15 has seen some improvements over the years like the addition of inverted forks, and dual channel ABS. But the lack of riding comfort and features makes the bike a very pricey proposition when compared to its rivals.

Yamaha MT 15 V2 Expert Review

Based on the iconic and popular Yamaha R15, the Yamaha MT 15 is the Japanese bikemaker’s attempt at a small capacity performance-based motorcycle. The MT 15 looks fancy and shares the same engine as its supersport sibling.

Design

The MT 15 has an aggressive streetfighter look with its headlight section featuring a single projector LED headlamp and DRLs; Very similar to the face of a transformer. The large tank extensions and overall bodywork gives the bike a commanding presence on road even though it has a small profile.

With the addition of golden inverted forks, Yamaha has given the bike a new personality, the bike looks quite premium now and has a proper street fighter stance when compared to the first version of the bike. However, we would have liked it better if the MT 15 took some design inspiration from the new Yamaha MT 03, which would have made the MT 15 a bit more menacing. 

Lastly, coming to the build quality. Yamaha has done quite a bit to improve things in this department but even then the new switchgears don’t feel premium and the placement of the horn and indicators will take some time to get used to. The pillion grabrail looks more like an afterthought given the coarse welds. The seat also comes off as a bit flimsy.

Engine, Mileage And Performance

The MT 15 is powered by the same engine as the R15; a 155cc liquid-cooled, single cylinder motor that produces 18.4PS and 14.1Nm. The power figures are decent and the engine is quite tractable, making riding at speeds as low as 25kmph in 6th gear quite easy.

Now, such tractability is surely impressive especially in a high revving engine but it is the only good part. The bike doesn’t feel alive under 6000rpm and the engine feels a bit lacking when it comes to bottom end grunt, not something you’d expect from a streetfighter. After 6000rpm the bike feels alive and can easily cruise at speeds of around 100kmph, but vibrations can be felt on the handlebar and footpegs after this. The vibrations aren’t really intense but the presence is felt. 

The MT 15 shines in the city with light clutch action, a slick gearbox and tractable nature of the engine makes short commutes an easy affair. But overall, the bike does feel a bit restrained when trying to ride fast.

Handling And Ride Quality

The inverted fork and cast aluminum swingarm that the MT 15 now gets has made the bike more stable, especially at the front end. The bike now inspires more confidence when committing to corners. The increase in stability also doesn’t come at the cost of agility, the bike is as agile and nimble as the first version on city roads, living up to its streetfighter DNA. 

The brakes on the MT 15 were one weak point, the front disc does always give adequate feedback but the rear one had no feel at all and it was easy to get your wheel locked up and sliding when braking hard. Now with the introduction of dual-channel ABS, this issue has been solved to a great extent. 

Comfort

The riding posture of the MT 15 is like a typical streetfighter, which combines a flat-low handlebar and rear-set footpegs giving a slightly forward leaning posture but one that isn’t too committed. This is really a good deal for riders who like the R15’s performance but don’t like the committed riding posture and discomfort that comes with it. 

The MT 15 has a single piece seat that is neither too hard nor too soft. While it is comfortable when riding for short distances in the city, long rides on the highway will result in an uncomfortable experience. Another issue with the seat is that there’s very little space for the pillion and the mount for the number plate is longer than the pillion seat. 

The suspension setup is a bit stiff and not being careful when going over bumpy roads will result in the rider being tossed off the saddle. So slowing down on speed breakers and undulations might get necessary.

Features

The MT 15 has a negatively lit, fully-digital LCD instrument console which gives readouts such as speed, gear position, fuel level, time, trip meters and odometers. It also provides good visibility in all lighting conditions. The Yamaha Y-Connect App also allows riders to connect their smartphone via Bluetooth to get functionalities like Call/SMS alerts and last parked location. But the most disappointing thing is that it misses out on turn-by-turn navigation.

Verdict

If you are looking for a streetfighter that is easy to handle in the city and provides a good riding experience overall then the MT 15 is a good choice. But if you are looking for more features and a more comfortable riding experience then you should look into its rivals like the KTM 125 Duke and the Bajaj Pulsar NS200.
