Yamaha Motor India has raised prices on the majority of its motorcycles, including the MT-15 V2 naked streetfighter, which was recently added to the list. The bike has now increased in price by 2,000 dollars, and the redesigned pricing now starts at $1,61,900 for the Black color option. The same trim was previously available for $159,900. Meanwhile, the Cyan and Ice Fluo are now priced at $1,62,900, up from $1,60,900 previously. Aside from the price hike announcement, no other changes to the model have been made.
The 155cc single-cylinder engine remains the same on the bike. At 10,000 rpm, this liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, 4-valve engine produces 18.4PS of maximum power and 14.1Nm of peak torque. Yamaha’s patent Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) system is also included. A six-speed transmission is included with the engine. The MT-15, which is based on the R15, has the same patented Delta Box frame and weighs only 139 kg.
A Bluetooth-enabled screen, LED headlamp, and single-channel ABS are just a few of the bike’s standout features. The R15 V4’s upside-down forks and aluminum swingarm are also carried over to the MT-15 V2.
The MT-15 V2 was released in April of this year and sold 9,228 units in its first month. In comparison to the MT-15 V1, this represents a direct 62 percent increase in YoY sales. In April of this year, the company had only sold 5,692 units of the same model.
In the meantime, the company is preparing to announce the launch of two new mid-displacement models in India. The specifics of which will be revealed in the coming months.
