    Much has been said about the price of the Yamaha MT-15 since its launch a few months ago. For what is essentially an R15-based motorcycle – minus some of the cost-intensive bits like the aluminium swingarm, fairing and rear-wheel ABS – the MT-15’s Rs 1.36 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) asking price was simply absurd. That’s just Rs 4,000 short of the R15’s price tag.

    But, there’s no point in writing off a bike simply on the basis of the sticker price, right? After all, even as our road test reveals, there’s more to the Yamaha MT-15 than meets the eye.
