Good news for all you two-wheeler enthusiasts, Yamaha is all prepped to launch the much-awaited MT-15 in India tomorrow. After being teased with a bunch of spy images, the bike will officially be launched tomorrow at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) in Noida. This will be followed by a media ride, so stay tuned to BikeDekho for our first ride impressions.
As for the bike itself, it draws inspiration from its elder sibling, the MT-09. Apart from this, the bike features an all-digital instrument console, an LED tail light and a projector headlight flanked by LED DRLs. Powering the new offering is the same 155cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine seen on the R15 v3.0. It produces 19.3PS at 10,000rpm and a peak torque of 14.7Nm at 8,500rpm. The motor comes mated to a 6-speed transmission aided by a slipper clutch. The India-spec version gets conventional telescopic forks and a box-type swingarm to keep costs in check.
In terms of pricing, we could expect the Yamaha MT-15 to be priced around Rs 1.2 lakh (ex-showroom). Once launched, it will compete against the KTM 125 Duke (1.17 lakh), Bajaj Pulsar NS200(Rs 1.12 lakh) and the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V ABS (Rs 1.11 lakh, all ex-showroom Delhi).
