New-gen Yamaha MT-15 V2.0 is just one step away from the Indian two-wheeler market and the bookings have commenced already. Some selected dealerships across the country have started taking booking orders with Rs 5,000-10,000 as a token amount.
As per the dealership sources, the 2022 MT-15 V2.0 is most likely to get golden USD forks instead of telescopic front forks. There will also be the addition of the new shades in its current paint scheme with the expectation of an upgrade in the suspension system of the bike.
In addition to this, the MY2022 Yamaha MT-15 is also expected to get a Bluetooth connectivity-enabled instrument console. There is no official word regarding the launch timeline but it is anticipated to hit the Indian roads by the end of this month. The ex-showroom price of the last-gen model was as high as Rs 1.50 lakh for the Monster Energy Edition, and after the integration of important features, it is likely to come with revised prices in the country.
To jog your memory, Yamaha launched the BS6-compliant model of MT-15 back in February 2020. If we talk about the major changes, the BS6-compliant 155cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine is good for a maximum power of 18.5HP @ 10,000 rpm and a peak torque of 13.9Nm @ 8,500 rpm. Both the power and torque figures of the BS6 engine are 0.8HP and 0.8Nm down respectively when compared to the 19.3HP of power and 14.7Nm of torque offered by the BS4 version. The engine remains mated to a 6-speed transmission.
