The MT-15 feels very well put together, built quality is nice

Verdict – The Yamaha MT-15 is a proper street alternative to the aggressive Yamaha R15. However, at this price it is just shy of Rs. 8000/- from the R15 making it quite costly for a naked motorcycle. But the MT-15 looks gorgeous and fresh and it is more suited for day-to-day riding. As a cheaper alternative, you can get the Yamaha FZ or for a similar price you can also look out for the FZ25. But if you are looking for outright fun and nimbleness, the MT-15 fits there. However, it comes at a premium and will only please a few who are definite Yamaha fanboys.

Track riding was fun and the MT-15 is quite nimble

What’s Cool

* Design looks fresh and aggressive
* The suspension setup is more comfortable yet handles well
* Top-end performance is great, feels lively when revved hard

What’s Not So Cool

* Priced at a premium, costs just a little less than the R15
* Gets only single-channel ABS, braking performance isn’t up to the mark
* The pillion gets limited space
