Launched with more color options
Yamaha has launched the updated model of MT-15 with more color options. The bike was already available in Ice Fluo-Vermillion and Metallic Black colours. Now you can also buy it in Cyan Storm and Racing Blue colors. People are very fond of its Cyan Storm color option. You get a single-piece saddle along with an LED headlamp and taillamp assembly. There has been a slight change in the graphics on the panel of the fuel tank.
Like the Yamaha R15 V4.0, the MT-15 version 2.0 also gets an updated front suspension. Earlier it used to have right-side-up forks, but now USD forks have been given in it. Also, the box-section swingarm has been replaced by Yamaha with a ‘MotoGP inspired aluminum swingarm’. This will help the bike maintain a better composer.
New instrument cluster and connectivity options
The bike gets a new LCD instrument cluster. Apart from this, you can connect your smartphone with the bike. Like other Yamaha two-wheelers, you can now use the Wi-Connect app to pair your smartphone with the bike via Bluetooth. It informs the rider about things like calls, SMS alerts, fuel consumption statistics and last parked space.
The updated version of MT-15 has become a bit expensive. Its Metallic Black color is priced at Rs 1,59,900 while the other three color options cost up to Rs 1,60,900 (ex-showroom). This new model is about Rs 14,000 more expensive than the previous version. The MT-15 version 2.0 will compete with bikes like TVS Apache RTR 200 4v, Honda Hornet 2.0, Suzuki Gixxer 250.
No change in engine and gearbox
No changes have been made to the engine and gearbox in the new version of the MT-15. It gets the same 155cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor as the earlier version. However, there is no problem with it as it is a better engine. This engine also comes mated to the same 6-speed gearbox with slip and assist clutch.
