According to the latest details available, the 2020 Yamaha MT-15 will be launched in India by the end of this month. The updated motorcycle with a BS6-compliant engine was unveiled back in Dec 2019 while it is expected to get a premium of INR 5,000 when compared to the present-gen BS4 version which is currently available in the Indian market at a price tag of 1.36 lakhs (ex-showroom).
The upcoming BS6 variant of the bike will be available to the customers in an all-new ‘Ice Fluo Vermillion’ colour scheme in addition to the present-gen “Dark Matt Blue” colour option currently available with the BS4 version.
The new colour variant of the motorcycle features an icy white fuel tank while the alloy wheels have been imparted with a neon orange colour scheme. In addition to this, the 2020 MT-15 features the similar icy white detailing on the other body panels while the LED headlight setup has been carried on from the present-gen version.
The tail light position of the updated motorcycle has also been raised a bit while the brand has finally offered the motorcycle with a side-stand engine cut-off switch that will protect the engine to start whenever the side stand is down. Apart from these changes, there hasn’t been any other cosmetic updates offered to the 2020 Yamaha MT-15.
Powering the updated street machine will be a BS6-compliant 155.1cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine borrowed from the BS6 R15 V3 that is capable of offering maximum power of 18.6HP and a peak torque of 14.1Nm. The power and torque values of the updated engine have been reduced slightly when compared to the 19.3HP and 14.7Nm generated by the BS4 version. The engine will remain mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The 2020 Yamaha MT-15 will feature the same telescopic forks at the front while the rear will be equipped with a monoshock unit. The updated motorcycle will feature disc brakes at either side mated to a single-channel ABS unit as standard.
