The riding posture on the bike is good, however, the suspension could be stiffer

Saurabh Kakkar | One year ago

The Yamaha MT-15 Version 2.0 is a great bike for those looking for a power-packed performance. It's powered by a 155cc single-cylinder engine that produces 19.3 Bhp and 14.7 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox that helps in providing good performance. The riding posture on the bike is good, however, the suspension could be stiffer as it doesn't absorb bumps very well. The handling of the bike is good and it handles quite well in heavy traffic, especially since it's a naked bike. However, if comfort is your main priority, then this might not be the bike for you.

All these features make the Yamaha MT-15 Version 2.0 a great option for those looking for a practical and powerful ride.
