    Yamaha has launched the MT-15 Version 2.0 priced at Rs 1.60 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The street naked gets some cosmetic and mechanical changes with this update. The Japanese manufacturer also revealed the R 15M World GP 60th Anniversary Edition, which is priced at Rs 1.88 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

    Yamaha MT-15 Version 2.0

    Starting with the mechanicals, the MT-15 Version 2.0 continues to be powered by the same engine that did duty on the outgoing model. It’s a 155cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled unit that puts out 18.4hp at 10,000rpm and 14.1Nm of torque at 7,500rpm, and comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

    In terms of changes, the Yamaha MT-15 now gets upside down front forks which are finished in gold and feature 37mm inner tubes. Furthermore, Yamaha has replaced the outgoing MT-15’s box section swingarm with a “MotoGP-inspired” aluminium swingarm. The MT-15 Version 2.0 features a newly designed, fully digital, LCD display and the manufacturer has also introduced two new colour options – Cyan Storm and Racing Blue – which will be available alongside the existing Ice Fluo-Vermillion and Metallic Black colour schemes.  

    However, the MT-15 continues to be offered with only a single-channel ABS. Yamaha could have used this opportunity to add dual-channel ABS to the MT-15, something that does feature on its faired sibling – the R 15. The new Yamaha MT-15 Version 2.0 costs Rs 13,000 more than the outgoing model.

    Yamaha YZF-R 15M World GP 60th Anniversary Edition

    To commemorate Yamaha’s 60th anniversary in motorcycle road racing, the company has launched the YZF-R 15M World GP 60th Anniversary Edition at Rs 1.88 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The special edition of the super sport motorcycle is finished in Yamaha’s iconic white and red ‘speed block’ colour scheme with gold alloys and front forks. It also features a special badge on the fuel tank and black levers.

    Mechanically though, the World GP 60th Anniversary Edition is identical to the standard R 15. It’s powered by a 155cc, four-valve, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that produces 18.4hp and 14.2Nm. The World GP 60th Anniversary Edition costs Rs 5,000 more than the standard R 15M.
