Yamaha MT-15 Highlights

The Yamaha MT-15 has been beaten by the KTM 125 Duke in terms of sales in July. The Austrian naked recorded a sale of 2,786 units whereas the MT-15 tallied 1,400 units. The Yamaha MT-15 is essentially the naked streetfighter iteration of the YZF-R15 Version 3.0. It draws power from the same engine as the R15 but the final sprocket is larger, for better acceleration than outright top speed. The motor produces 19.3PS at 10,000rpm and 14.7Nm at 8500rpm. It works alongside a 6-speed transmission with assist and slipper clutch. 

The delta box frame is suspended on a telescopic fork and a linked mono-shock. Brakes include 282mm front and 220mm rear disc with single-channel ABS as standard. The 17-inch alloy wheels are shod with 100-section front and 140-section rear tubeless tires.

Expert Review

Yamaha is one brand that has always been associated with performance motorcycles in our country. From its two-stroke screamers to modern entry-level performance bikes, it has always given Indian bikers a dose of adrenaline. However, its portfolio in the recent past hasn't been performance-oriented, especially compared to its rivals, who have stepped up the ante. A good example of this is Yamaha's FZ series, which despite the  sharp styling isn't sporty enough. Yamaha did retaliate with the R15 Version 3.0 and the bike has been well received by Indian bikers. However, the aggressive riding stance of the R15 isn't everyone's cup of tea and the Japanese brand has addressed it by riding in the MT-15. It's basically the naked version of the R15 and shares most of its underpinnings with it. So, as you can see, the baby MT has lot to deliver but it shocked many with its Rs 1.36 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) price tag. We got to ride Yamaha's latest street fighter at the BIC (Buddh International Circuit) racetrack and here's our initial impressions.

Design and Features

Being a youth-centric motorcycle, the MT-15 has a sharp and edgy styling to woo youngsters. Unlike streetbikes of the past, which were bulky and big, the MT-15 has more athletic and compact proportions, like the Yamaha MT-09. The most eye-catching design element on the new bike has to be its transformer-like LED projector headlight with twin LED DRLs on top that endows the motorcycle with a menacing look. However, the lack of USD forks mean that the India-spec motorcycle misses out on that butch stance associated with the international-spec bike.

On the positive side, the chiselled fuel tank and large fuel extensions with “MT” branding does give the new motorcycle a mass-forward visual appeal. Also, the single-seat unit looks like a floating unit with a slim LED tail light. The India-spec bike is equipped with saree guard and crude looking grab rails, or should I say a metal tube below the pillion seat, which is something most owners are likely to remove. Another eye-sore in an otherwise well executed design is the R15-sourced exhaust muffler.

Quality is one aspect that Yamaha motorcycles in the recent past have been lacking and the MT-15, sadly, continues this tradition. On some of the media bikes the tank extensions were shaking, while the seat didn’t fit snugly close to the fuel tank. Additionally, some of the plastic panels looked and felt flimsy. Last but not least is the switchgear, whose quality is even poorer compared to the one found on the Yamaha R15. Given the asking price of the motorcycle and the reputation that brand Yamaha had for quality in India, disappointment is an understatement summing up the MT-15’s build quality.

 

Safety and Features

Talking about tech, the new Yamaha MT-15 is equipped with LED projector headlights. Given our poor experience with the R15 and the FZ25’s LED headlights, we are hoping that the new projector unit is better. Since the ride was held in the afternoon, we couldn’t test its effectiveness and we hope the new units are better-performing than its siblings. It also gets a petite LED unit at the rear. The all-digital instrument cluster is a straight lift from the R15, albeit with a negative LCD display. What it relays back to you is the usual details along with a gear position indicator, real and average fuel consumption, distance to empty and there’s also a shift light above it. 

The MT-15 is also the only naked motorcycle in its segment to feature VVA (variable valve actuation) tech. While the R15 features dual-channel ABS, the new Yamaha motorcycle gets a single-channel unit. Also, the aluminium swingarm seen on its faired sibling has been replaced with a box-type unit. Another major change compared to the international-spec model is the inclusion of telescopic forks instead of USD forks. Yamaha has also introduced some accessories for the MT-15, including a USB charger, mobile stand, and tank pad. You can read about it here
