2020 Yamaha MT-15 LE Side
We like the new colour scheme and it’d be nice to have it as an option here

For 2020, Yamaha has introduced a striking new paint scheme for the MT-15 in Thailand. Yamaha calls it the MT-15 Limited Edition. There are no mechanical changes to the motorcycle, though.

The Yamaha MT-15 already looks futuristic and alien-like which makes it standout in its class and now with the new paint scheme, the motorcycle will gather even more attention.

For the limited edition, Yamaha has chosen a turquoise blue paint scheme with a hint of neon for added appeal.

The bodywork which includes the fuel tank, headlight mask, radiator shrouds, and the tail cowl is all turquoise blue while the USD forks are golden which gives the motorcycle a premium feel.

For the neon bit, Yamaha chose the wheels. The rims are fluorescent green, which is a very tacky colour. It also gets the signature MT logo in fluorescent green, which is positioned on the body panels with turquoise blue pinstripes for company. We feel the fluorescent green gives a Valentino Rossi vibe to the puny naked.

Mechanically, the specs remain unchanged for the Yamaha MT-15 Limited Edition. It gets the same 155cc motor which produces 18.5 PS of power and 14.7 Nm of torque. The mill comes with liquid-cooling and Yamaha’s VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) which makes the MT-15 a peppy and fun-to-ride motorcycle.

The Yamaha MT-15’s engine also gets a 6-speed gearbox with an assist and slipper clutch. Other standard features include a digital speedometer, LED headlamps, and tail lights, dual-disc brakes, and single-channel ABS.

Yamaha launched the 2020 MT-15 Limited Edition for THB 98,500 which converts to around Rs. 2.32 lakhs whereas the MT-15 retails in India for about Rs. 1.39 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).

We think Yamaha should introduce this paint scheme here at a small premium, just like it did with the MT-15’s Ice Fluo Vermillion scheme. Would you pay a premium of about Rs. 90,000/- for the 2020 Yamaha MT-15 Limited Edition if it were to arrive here at the same price?
