Coming to the other feature updates, the motorcycle has been equipped with a side-stand engine cut-off switch which prevents the rider from starting the motorcycle if the side stand is down. This imparts the updated sports machine with additional safety.
The brand has retained both the “Dark Matt Blue” and “Metallic Black” colour variants of the motorcycle while the BS6 Yamaha MT-15 will now be available to the customers in an all-new ‘Ice Fluo Vermillion’ colour which features overall white body panels with orange alloy wheels setup.
Apart from this, the tail light of the updated motorcycle is now a bit sharper when compared to the BS4 version while the 2020 model features a wide radial tyre at the rear for extra-smooth handling on the Indian roads.
