Yamaha Motor India is all set to bring the MT-15 to the country later this year.

According to reports, the launch is scheduled for March 15, 2019. Also, bookings have also started for an amount of Rs 5000 and deliveries should commence by April first week.

Dealers in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi among other cities confirmed to carandbike that the MT-15 can be booked for a token amount of ₹ 5000, while deliveries for the bike will begin around early April.

Power on the Yamaha MT-15 will come from the same 155 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that is likely to get variable valve actuation (VVA) that is seen on the R15 V3.0.

The motor is tuned to produce about 19 bhp and 15 Nm of torque on the R15 and expect the power figures to remain identical on the MT as well. The 6-speed gearbox will be carried over as well, while dual-channel ABS will be available as standard.

Prices for the Yamaha MT-15 are under wraps for now but we expect the motorcycle to be priced in the vicinity of ₹ 1.20-1.25 lakh (ex-showroom). At the price point, the bike will not only be marginally cheaper than the R15 but also take on the KTM 125 Duke.
