New Delhi, March 16, 2019: India Yamaha Motor on Friday launched its new 155 cc bike MT-15 priced at Rs 1.36 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It will rival the likes of KTM 125 Duke, TVS Apache RTR 200 and Bajaj Pulsar NS200.
The bike comes with liquid-cooled four-stroke engine mated to a six-speed transmission. The motor produces 19.3 PS of power at 10,000 rpm and 14.7 Nm of torque at 8,500 rpm.
Other features include single channel anti-lock braking system (ABS) and fuel injected variable valve actuation (VBA).
"With the new trends of motorcycling in India wherein the riders want diverse experiences with speed and controls, the entry of MT-15 is inevitable," Yamaha Motor India group of companies Chairman Motofumi Shitara told reporters here.
India Yamaha Motor Senior Vice President Strategy and Planning Ravinder Singh said, "We are aiming to sell around 60,000 units of the MT series this year." The company would also look at bringing higher powered models like MT-03 depending on market demand, he added.
