The All New 2022 Yamaha MT-15
With everyone getting back on road and traveling again, Yamaha is all set to launch an all new 2022 Yamaha MT-15 in India. Yamaha’s motorcycle, the MT-15, will be getting a 2022 updated model soon. The motorcycle is expected to follow in the footsteps of the Yamaha R15 V4 and receive a bunch of mechanical as well as feature updates.
One of the primary updates on the MT-15 could be the replacement of the negative digital LCD cluster with the R15 V4’s multi-functional fully-digital instrument cluster. Featuring Bluetooth connectivity, it displays information such as gear position, ride modes, average speed, fuel efficiency and more. It also displays call and notification updates and phone battery level.
Similar to the R15 V4, the 2022 MT-15 could also feature a USD suspension setup, offering better control at high speeds, cornering and braking, consequently improving the riding dynamics of the bike. The rear will feature the same linked-type monocross suspension setup.
Powering the bike will be the same 155cc liquid-cooled, SOHC engine as before, producing 18.5PS and 13.9Nm, mated to a six-speed transmission. In addition to the VVA (Variable valve actuation) and assist and slipper clutch, we can expect the MT-15 to feature a quick shifter too, just like its sibling. In terms of styling, the 2022 MT-15 can get new color schemes. It is expected to be launched later this year.
The Yamaha MT-15 is a Pure-bred hyper naked, one of the most dynamic lightweights from the Yamaha MT stable. This bike has all the traits of a hyper naked with its agile handling, wide handlebar, and ultra-lightweight of 138 kgs. The impeccably styled MT-15 with its Bifunctional LED headlight gives the motorcycle an aggressive and intimidating look. This hyper-naked bike will not only give you the thrill you seek but will also inspire immense confidence in the rider.
- Bi Functional LED Headlights: Hi and low beam has been integrated into one single compact unit which makes it technically advanced and a first in its category. MT-15’s uniqueness comprises the stylish, compact headlight to realize the MT design.
- Multi-function Negative LCD Instrument Cluster: While others on the road admire the looks and styling of your MT-15, you can admire the looks and take advantage of all the information that it has to offer to help you ride better. A well informed rider is a better rider.
- Deltabox Frame: The new MT-15 adopts a new Deltabox frame with superb rigidity balance. With a Deltabox frame, the top and bottom of the head pipe and the pivot points form a triangle, hence the “Deltabox” gives it excellent rigidity balance.
The 2022 Yamaha MT-15 Version 2.0 could be mechanically identical to the outgoing model, with the same VVA-equipped 155cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder motor producing 18.5PS and 13.9Nm. That said, having the R15 V4’s performance (18.4PS and 14.2Nm) should make the bike a tad more engaging.
