The rider neatly gets behind the windscreen while the one on the MT-15 will need to add a visor to keep the winds away, that too not as effective as the sharp fairing of the R15 V3. The top speed for both the bikes will stay around 140 kph on the speedometer, with body weight playing an important role here. The MT-15 comes for INR 1.36 lakh while those considering Yamaha R15 will need to spend INR 1.40 lakh. The prices mentioned here are ex-showroom India.
