The MT-15 might be a bit overpriced but is a really capable motorcycle

Yamaha MT-15

The Yamaha MT-15 was launched recently and has received a mixed response from the public. While the street-fighter is dynamically strong and feature-loaded, the R15 from the same stable proves to be more value for money. However, make no mistake, the MT-15 is by no means a bad motorcycle. The MT-15 features very unique and aggressive styling. Power in the MT-15 comes from the 155cc, liquid-cooled, 4-valve engine seen on the R15. Transmission duties are taken care by a 6-speed gearbox. The setup produces the same 19.3 PS of peak power and 14.7 Nm of torque.

The motorcycle has really good cornering capability and the acceleration is also pretty good. Keeping the price factor aside for a moment, the Yamaha MT-15 is a very capable machine. Having said that, there are other manufacturers which offer better specs at lower prices which will make it hard for the Yamaha MT-15 to garner a strong foothold in the segment. The Yamaha MT-15 is already on sale now and costs Rs. 1.36 lakhs.
