Yamaha MT 15 BS6 Overview
Yamaha MT-15 is a Pure-bred hyper naked bike and streetfighter version of R15 V3. It is one of the most dynamic lightweight motorcycles, with an intimidating style and amazing performance.
The MT 15 retains its previous design and style, which was inspired by its elder sibling, MT 09. The unique transformer-style front fairing with LED headlights is the most striking visual feature of this bike.
A wide handlebar, a finely shaped fuel tank with sharp shrouds, and an exposed tail section all contribute to the motorcycle's sporty look. Furthermore, its alien-like appearance easily draws a lot of attention.
Yamaha now offers a new Ice Fluo-Vermillion colour scheme and the Dark Matte Blue and Metallic Black in the BS6 model. Additionally, you get different colour options in CYW (Customize Your Warrior).
Talking about the performance, Yamaha MT-15 is now powered by a much-anticipated BS6-compliant 155cc, liquid-cooled, inline single-cylinder engine. It delivers 18.5 PS of max power at 10,000 rpm and torque of 13.9 Nm at 8,500 rpm.
