The Yamaha MT-15 street naked motorcycle gets a cosmetic update, while the mechanicals and features continue to be the same as before.
Yamaha Motors India has launched the MT-15 with Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP livery. The new special edition of the Yamaha MT-15 is priced at Rs 1.48 lakh (ex-showroom). The new MotoGP Edition MT-15 demands a premium of Rs 2,000 over the price of the standard motorcycle, which is sold in either a metallic or a matte finish.
This new Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP livery includes ‘Monster’ branding on the fuel tank and the Monster Energy logo on the fuel tank shrouds. There are blue highlights of the ‘Yamahalube ‘on the extended panels as well. One can observe Eneos sticker on the rear cowl of the Yamaha MT-15. The base colour stays black with a gloss finish.
Mechanically, the Yamaha MT-15 MotoGP Edition continues to be the same as before. A 155cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, mated to a six-speed gearbox, powers the motorcycle. The output is marked at 18.2bhp at 10,000rpm and a peak torque of 13.9Nm at 8,500rpm.
The suspension components continue to be the same as well, with telescopic forks at the front and a multi-link mono-shock at the rear. The MT-15 continues with the same braking hardware and single-channel ABS. The feature list includes a side-stand engine cut-off, LCD with negative display, and a slip-and-assist clutch.
