Yamaha may have gotten its BS6 lineup ready with new upgrades to all its products but it has been disappointing its enthusiast. Drop is horsepower and torque. Prices have increased of the already expensive products. One such example is the Yamaha MT-15. Let’s look at the details.
2020 Yamaha MT-15 BS6 Design and Dimensions
The design of the motorcycle is termed futuristic because of the headlight design which is robotic in aesthetic terms and appeals to the younger audience, which means it could not appeal to mass market as the naked format does lure a lot of people to the showrooms, this could be not the best thing for conservative buyers. The international styling does impressive with handlebar and tank along with its minimalist approach like the KTM Duke series of motorcycles with the right colors does impress.
2020 Yamaha MT-15 BS6 Chassis, suspension and brakes
No USD forks like its international version continues here in the BS6 variant as well. This was seen in the BS4 variant as well as on the R15 BS4 and BS6 variant which the motorcycle takes most of hardware from. The perimeter frame, single channel ABS, radial MRF tyre (comes in the BS6 upgrade, not BS4) and steel box swingarm over the sophisticated aluminum swingarm are sadly unchanged after much criticism.
2020 Yamaha MT-15 BS6 Speedometer
The same speedometer as the R15 and previous BS4 version continues which does look good with its graphics and welcoming signs and the light which blinks when the camshafts aka VVA are in action. The fully digital cluster is devoid of clock but has fuel efficiency parameters.
2020 Yamaha MT-15 BS6 Price and Launch
The motorcycle was heavily criticized for being as expensive as the R15 which had more to offer. Making the MT-15 not a value for money deal in any aspect. The recent price increase of Rs 500 may not sound much but it takes the price to just Rs 100 shy of Rs. 1.40 lakhs. Yes, the new price is Rs 1,39,900.

Down on power and torque by 0.7 PS and 0.6 Nm respectively makes the case even more repelling for its prospective buyers. Power in the BS6 avatar now stands at 18.6 PS of power and 14.1 Nm of torque. The liquid cooled, 4-valve, fuel injected motor loves to rev, but has more torque lower in the rev range to make it peppier in the city.

Single Channel ABS continues to be on offer. Radial tyres and dual disc brakes are on offer.
