2022 Yamaha MT-15 India launch expected soon

The 2022 Yamaha MT-15 will rival the likes of the Suzuki Gixxer 155, KTM Duke 200 and the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V.

Yamaha is said to have temporarily discontinued its MT-15 streetfighter motorcycle in the Indian market. As per reports, the company is expected to introduce a newer version of the motorcycle soon, featuring plenty of updates.

Some of the new updates include the addition of upside-down front forks, dual-channel ABS, traction control and maybe even a quick-shifter. The 2022 MT-15 could also feature a new instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity.

While the overall design of the 2022 MT-15 is expected to remain unchanged, it will receive subtle updates, along with new body graphics and colour schemes.

Powering the 2022 Yamaha MT-15 will be the same 155cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, which also powers the fully-faired YZF R15 V4.0. The engine produces 18.1 BHP @ 10,000 rpm and 14.2 Nm @ 7,500 rpm and is paired with a 6-speed gearbox.

Yamaha is yet to announce the launch dates for the 2022 MT-15 motorcycle, although, it is expected to arrive in the market sometime in April. Once launched, the 2022 Yamaha MT-15 will rival the likes of the Suzuki Gixxer 155, KTM Duke 200 and the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V.
