Two-wheelers manufacturer, Yamaha Motor India has finally launched the much-awaited 2022 Yamaha MT-15 Version 2.0 at a starting price of nearly ₹1.6 lakh on the Indian road.
Taking ahead the legacy of the MT series, the new Yamaha MT-15 Ver 2.0 is equipped with more aggression and agility with its upside-down front forks, Aluminium swing arm, 155cc Liquid-cooled engine, and other exciting features. In the ex-showroom Delhi, the motorcycle is priced at ₹1,59,900.
MT-15 Ver 2.0 is available in four colors – Cyan Storm, Racing Blue, Ice Fluo-Vermillion, and Metallic Black.
Although the motorcycle looks identical to its previous sibling, however, what’s noteworthy is the inclusion of a 37mm USD fork which is said to be similar to the 2022 Yamaha R15 V4.
Yamaha Motor India Group of Companies Chairman Eishin Chihana said, “MT-15 Version 2.0′ bike comes with new features like a MotoGP aluminum swingarm that offers improved stability in corners and under hard braking, along with a new digital instrument console with Bluetooth ‘Y-Connect’ app,” reported by PTI.
Chihana added, “We are confident that with the new set of features and technology, the MT-15 Version 2.0 will attract more young riders who are in search of a premium street-naked motorcycle that strikes the perfect balance between weekend rides and daily commuting needs.”
Powered by a 155cc liquid-cooled engine along with a peak power of 18.4PS, the motorcycle features an inverted front fork with 37mm inner tubes, while replacing the box-section swingarm with a MotoGP-inspired Aluminium swingarm.
Paired with a 6-speed gearbox, the new bike’s engine comes with a capability to produce 18.4PS at 10,000rpm and a peak torque of 14.1Nm at 7,500rpm.
Based on Yamaha’s Delta Box frame, the motorcycle weighs just 139kgs. Among the accessories are tank pads, LED flasher, and seat covers.
