Yamaha entered the Q2 2022 with its updated baby streetfighter, the MT 15 Ver 2.0. It’s received some notable updates along with a price hike. Let’s take a closer look at all that’s new and that has been retained on the MT 15 Ver 2.0.
The design remains largely unchanged for the MT 15 Ver 2.0 when compared to its previous iteration. You get the same transformers like headlight flanked by bulb indicators. The body panels too have retained the previous form and give the MT 15 Ver 2.0 a butch appearance.
It’s powered by the same R15-sourced 155cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder motor with VVA. The engine dishes out 18.4bhp and 14.1Nm and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The baby Yammie now features a fully digital instrumental cluster with Bluetooth connectivity. Apart from the basic readouts like the speedometer, odometer, tachometer, gear position indicator, the console now gives you access to phone calls/SMS/email alerts, phone battery status, malfunction notifications, last parked location and more.
The MT 15 Ver 2.0 is suspended on new USD forks and a monoshock.
Yamaha has changed the old box-section swingarm with the new aluminum swingarm, borrowed from its faired sibling.
The braking hardware comprises a 282mm front disc and a 220mm rear disc with single-channel ABS. It rolls on 17-inch alloys wrapped in 100/80 front and 140/70 rear tyre.
Compared to the previous model, the new MT 15 Ver 2.0 costs Rs 13,000 more at an asking price of Rs 1,59,900 (ex-showroom Delhi).
