Good news for all Yamaha bike fans, the company is planning to introduce the MT-15 in India soon. Yamaha has recently launched the all-new R15 V3 in the country and now its time for the next model which is a naked motorcycle. MT-15 was spotted in the country that indicates the launch is near. In the spy shot, the bike is completely uncovered and noticed in a new attractive shade. The Indian version of the bike looks bold and stylish with new elements.
MT-15 is already available in the international market. The Indian-version will have some distinct features keeping the price range in mind. Similar to the global variant, the bike was spotted in a matte blue exterior which looked awesome. The sporty naked bike has got neon green detailing on the wheels. However, the Indian-variant comes with black alloy wheels along with green rim. The bike is expected to be launched in some other colours such as matte grey, and a metallic black.
The Indian-variant features a conventional telescopic front fork and all-new swingarm. On the front, the bike is outfitted with a projector headlamp highlighting LED DRL’s. It is now integrated with fully digital instrumentation which is based on R15 V3.0. The seat and fuel tank is also different from the global variant. Although, we will miss the features which the company has eliminated from the Indian version of MT-15 like the upside down forks and cast aluminium swingarm.
The Yamaha MT-15 will run on a powerful 155 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, variable valve actuated (VVA) engine which will be capable of generating 19 bhp of power at 10,000 rpm, and peak torque of 14.7 Nm at 8,500 rpm. The new model is expected to come with a standard dual-channel ABS as standard. The all-new MT-15 is scheduled to be introduced on March 15, this year. It can be priced at nearly Rs 1.2 lakh (ex-showroom) and will rival against KTM 125 Duke, Pulsar NS 200 and the TVS Apache RTR 200.
