Fun with dark sides

8 months ago by Alexander575 views

Mt stands for master of torque in mt15. Is mt15 really that or its just a marketing gimmick?Let me provide my elaborate take on this bike before answering that.1.Buying experience Coming from fz16 i was looking for a good upgrade to another street fighter bike in entry level segment. Being a yamaha owner my options were restricted to yamaha due to past good ownership experiences. I had the great dilemma between fz25 and mt15. I finally zeroed in on mt15 after two test rides. I booked mt15 last month and got my hands on the bike on august 28th.Took 3 days for registration.I got few accessories for free and it's a good experience with the dealership.Completed 500+ kms on my ride and it's been a lovely experience so far.2.Riding experience I have completed 500+ kms on my ride so far. Awaiting first service in few weeks. Everyday commute is just pure fun. The ride quality is pretty good. The bike is nimble and very flickable in city traffic. Quick direction changes requires very light steering input. It's extreme lightweight in its class combined with the agility provided by the delta ox frame provides pristine handling. Although it's quite intimidating in corners due to most of the weight of bike distributed at front section. But with practice and awareness this is easily tackled. It has a stiff suspension setup which wont be liked by all. But it provides good stability. Also the seats were quite hard. With some aftermarket cushioning this may be solved i guess.3.Details about looks,performance etc.Looks wise this is an absolute stunner. It looks lean and mean with those intimidating projector head lamp,muscular tank and extended rear section etc. If you love naked bikes there is none like this in 150cc segment. It has an engine guard made of plastic and grab rails neatly tucked.It also has rear number plate light. The console is the same as in r15 with inverted colors. Has average/instantaneous speed,mileage indicator,clock and gear shift indicator.It looks fine in day time and absolutely cool in the nights.The tyres are same as the ones on r15. Coming to performance this bike got one of the excellent combo of engine,gearbox and slipper clutch derived from r15. Its a lovely and smooth free-revving motor which can blast past 10k rpm freely.With a bigger rear sprocket the bike pops and sprints quicker than r15. It's a boon in traffic with smooth gearshifts and good exhaust rumble singing all along the way. I never tried to achieve vva 7400rpm because i'm still on run in period. Front abs works fine and saved me once in hard braking. I don't feel the need for rear abs because i usually mess up my front brakes. Hence it's fine for me with single channel abs. The pillion seat is sufficient for an average person. I'm skinny so the pillion didn't had much issues but the seat gets hard and causes pain on travel over few kms. Coming to the mileage part, i am getting an average of 50 kmpl now. I shift at 5k rpm. It's quite impressive for a performance machine.4.Servicing and maintenance. It's bit easy to do basic diy cleaning at home. I hope it's maintenance costs should be same as r15 and it's quite nominal one. Regular and timely servicing will keep bikes in good condition always. 5.Pros Excellent refined liquid cooled 4v engine,6 speed gearbox with assist and slipper clutch,good low end pull,vva,good mileage of 50kmpl+,Easy to cruise on 100kmpl, lightweight,agile,higher bhp and torque compared to other 150s. 6.Cons Pricey,smaller pillion seat,hard seats,stuff suspension setup,compromise of top end speed,dropping of features like abs at rear,aluminum swing arm.Verdict : mt15 may not be a master of torque. I would say fz25 gives great torque. But it's a fact that this hypernaked provides the best of fz25 and r15. And most of all,with all those dark side(cons) this bike is pure fun in entry level motorcycling...!!!

Tips for Yamaha MT 15

Do periodic maintenance of bike. Allow bike to be in idle for 1 min when starting the bike in the morning. Shift at low rpms for high mileage.

    There are many bikes in 200-250cc segment out of which i was confused .So basically i wanted a commuter which is powerful . So i rode the ns 200 which is good but not refined at all .So the other option was was tvs apache rtr 200 4v which is an amazing motorcycle for the price point it is so refined ad loaded with features but i personally think tvs r not reliable so i didn't go for that too then at last i went to yamaha showroom went there and saw the fz 25 it wasnt as striking (looks r subjective)but when i drove the bike it was a tremendous feeling the ride was plush with wide handle bars which made it extremely easy to drive in the city the gear box is slik shifting although missing out on a 6th gear but its kinda justified coz it is a proper commuter and even could mange the mileage upto 39 kmpl and i could manage a top speed of 139 kmph the ride is very plush it could soak all the bumps best for Indian roads .The maintenance is quite cheap also it didn't give me any problem since i bought it so its clear if ur looking a powerful city commuter go for it. Thanks for reading

    1.I didn't bought it so i don't any buying experience 2.The bike so soft that i could hardly feel the vibration and i just loved riding it,3.Its looks is way more cooler than any yamaha bike ,its headlight makes it more cool and i m not sure about its performance because i never bought,honestly i don't have the money to buy it, i just drove it one time so for me its performance were perfect 4.For low class people like me ,it has a very good maintenance,not so costly for us to buy its parts 5.The pros is that its not heavy and that's why we can handle it perfectly and its cons is that its seat is a little smaller and because of it ,it is difficult to ride while carrying a person.

    We'll start with the pro's.The look is actually pretty amazing. The bike looks awesome like a robot from the transformer movie. The handling of the bike is really nice in traffic, smooth handling. Next is the pick up of the bike. In traffic, this bike is really great. I've not really taken it for a long drive however I've opened the bike to 120 and it was perfectly smooth.Gear shifting is also very smooth. Cons: There aren't a lot of cons, but the main drawback is the price. For a 160 cc bike, the price is actually high. There are a lot of other bikes with a higher cc in the same range. Next is the abs, it is a single channeled. It should actually be a dual-channel with a bike of this caliber. The halogen light isn't really that powerful.
