The 2021 Yamaha MT-15 has been revealed for the Thai market. It features three new colour options but remains unchanged mechanically. Yamaha is expected to update the MT-15 in the Indian market too with new colour options.
The Yamaha MT-15 is one of the most capable and fun-to-ride motorcycles in the 150cc segment. It is a potent streetfighter and Yamaha has just updated it for 2021. Launched in Thailand, the 2021 Yamaha MT-15 update brings with it three new colour options — Metallic Black, Racing Blue, and Metallic Grey.
The Metallic Black colour scheme, as the name suggests, features a blacked-out look with Black-coloured panels all around, and the bike rides on Black wheels too. The only contrasting element is the Silver tank shroud surround, with a Silver-coloured MT logo beside it.
The Racing Blue option features Yamaha’s signature Racing Blue colour on the fuel-tank and wheels. The tank shrouds and headlamp surrounds are finished in a shade of Silver. The Metallic Grey colour option features Grey-coloured body panels while the motorcycle rides on Red-coloured wheels. All three shades feature the upside-down fork finished in a shade of Gold.
Yamaha has retained the same design language seen on the outgoing model. Up front is the same LED headlamp setup that sets the bike apart. It also continues to feature the muscular fuel tank and the wide tank shrouds with the minimalistic rear-end.
The 2021 Yamaha MT-15 is still powered by the same liquid-cooled, 155cc, single-cylinder engine with a maximum power output of 18.5bhp and a peak torque output of 14.7Nm. A 6-speed gearbox drives the rear wheel via a slip and assist clutch. The Yamaha MT-15 sold in Thailand comes with an upside-down fork and an underslung aluminium swingarm
In India though, we have to make do with a conventional telescopic fork and a pressed box-type swingarm thanks to cost-cutting measures. These colours are expected to be launched in the Indian market soon.
