Yamaha MT-15 bookings open: KTM Duke 125 rival launch quickly! – Monetary Categorical

Shortly after asserting the launch of the Yamaha MT-15 for the Indian market on 15th of March 2019. Our dealership sources within the NCR have confirmed that they’ve began taking bookings for the lightweight bare sports activities bike for a nominal price of Rs 5000. The MT15 which is able to make its Indian debut on the ides of March, is principally what you’ll get in the event you stripped down an R15 V3 and matched it with MT-family fashion headlamps. This implies the MT-15 can be powered by the R15 V3s 155 cc VVA motor that makes about 19 hp and 15 Nm of torque, paired with the Delta-box chassis. Costs for the MT15 are anticipated to be round 1.25 lakh ex-showroom slotting slightly below the R15V3.

As soon as launched the Yamaha will tackle the equally priced Duke 125 albeit with much more energy, a greater motor and a purpose-built body. Like all MTs within the collection, the MT 15 will share its cycle components and first delta-box chassis with the R15 though there is likely to be some adjustments to the swing-arm. It’s seemingly that Yamaha India would possibly swap out the aluminium swing-arm in trade for a box-type Swingarm, in an effort to avoid wasting prices. The MT15 can also be more likely to be extra of a comfort-oriented motorbike than the R15. What is going to work within the MTs favour is the sharp edgy design that may catch the attention of the youthful crowd. The truth is, we wouldn’t be very stunned if the MT — regardless of the marginal value distinction — outsells its faired sibling. As for competitors just like the Duke 125 with 5 hp and 25cc as well as, the MT15 could have the Duke set in its sights.

By way of security, we anticipate that the MT15 will launch with a dual-channel ABS that it’s going to share with the R15 V3, contemplating that the launch is only a month forward of the federal government prescribed deadlines for added security on bikes.
