MT-15 Overview

Seeking its inspiration from the flagship super naked roadster in the country, the MT-09, the Yamaha MT-15 caters to the lower spectrum of the performance-oriented street sport motorcycles. The most affordable performance-oriented naked roadster from Yamaha in Malaysia, the Yamaha MT-15 can be had in a single variant, which is being offered with two color options of blue and white.

Yamaha MT-15 Design

The Yamaha MT-15 borrows the latest design philosophy of naked roadsters from Yamaha, by being in line with the bigger MTs, like the MT-09 and MT-07. The aggression and sharpness of the Yamaha MT-15 are bound to turn many heads, and many might mistake it as a much more powerful and bigger motorcycle than what it actually is.

The front face of the Yamaha MT-15 looks menacing in a welcoming way, with a robotic headlamp cluster comprising of a bi-beam LED projector bulb with a V-shaped black plastic cowl above it housing twin LED positioning lamps. Just at the upper corners of this black plastic cowl, the basic clear lens turn indicators are mounted, which could have looked a bit cooler if they were LED units like the main headlamp. What adds furthermore beauty to the front of the motorcycle is the golden theme executed for the front upside-down forks.

The side profile of the Yamaha MT-15 makes it looks very athletic. Despite having a slightly upright set handlebar, the Yamaha MT-15 manages to look sporty, thanks to the sharp-looking fuel tank with long and angular knee recesses, which accommodate faux air vents in them and have radiator shrouds at their bottom ends. The exposed aluminium frame, entire engine and cycle parts surrounding it and the big engine cowl are all finished in black, and so is the single-piece exhaust pipe shared with the YZF-R15.

The Yamaha MT-15 has got a very slim and upright tailpiece, which has a long single-piece seat and ends up in a compact tail lamp unit, which is a clear lens LED unit here. The tailpiece lacks a proper pillion grab rail, which along with the compact perch for the pillion makes things not so comfortable for the pillion rider. The rear profile of the Yamaha MT-15 has got a very long and extended rear fender, which have got turn indicators mounted on them.

The small rectangular instrument console of the Yamaha MT-15 is a full TFT LCD unit with a blue backlit theme. This completely digital unit has readouts for speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, odometer, trip meters, gear indicator and clock, however, the small fonts are quite hard to read on the go and the unit itself could have had more information on board.

MT-15 Ride & Handling

Apart from the engine, even the basic mechanical architecture under the skin of the Yamaha MT-15 is from the YZF-R15, which includes a diamond type frame and a suspension combination of upside down hydraulic telescopic forks at the front and fully adjustable mono-shock with rectangular swing-arm at the back. The bike has been fitted with the same brakes, tires and wheels as that in the YZF-R15, with 17-inch wheels shod with tubeless tires and single disc brake setup on both the wheels.

Yamaha MT-15 Engine & Fuel Consumption

The Yamaha MT-15 retains its four-stroke, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 155cc motor with variable valve actuation system from its faired sibling, the YZF-R15. Here too, the engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox and is in the same state of tune as that in the YZF-R15, with the maximum power and torque outputs rated at 19.3 PS and 14.5 Nm respectively.

MT-15 Braking & Safety

The Yamaha MT-15, being an entry-level performance-oriented motorcycle, gets the basics done right by having an assist and slipper clutch and engine kill switch on the place. However, the presence of a proper ABS unit would have been appreciated.

Yamaha MT-15 Verdict

Based on the very capable Yamaha YZF-R15, the Yamaha MT-15 is the naked version of the same, and retains all the positive attributes of the former, by having a top-notch quality feel, punchy and refined engine and agile riding dynamics with a fantastic chassis underneath.

    The outstanding look of the bike has been the craziest thing to drive me insane after its making! The golden finish of the front fascia paired with the swingarm makes it look presentable on the roads. It is indeed one of the best purchases you can conduct if you have great taste in speeding vehicles. It is one of the Read More

    The Yamaha MT 15 is one such bike that I have always dreamt of owning as a college student. Now a graduate, I was finally able to buy this beast of a bike.

    The MT-15 is by far the best-naked street bike you can buy in the 150cc segment in Malaysia. I have been riding the new model for a few months and I am really happy with the design and performance of the bike. The bike does not only look bold and stylish but also performs aggressively with a very capable and Read More

    Ever since I became a part of a riders’ group, my opinion towards bikes have changed. I never knew anyone could be so passionate about motorcycles. I used to ride a KTM Duke 200, which was enough for highways, but still my friends recommended that I buy a Yamaha MT-25. Now, right off the box, I can tell you that Read More

    I recently was talking to my friend about buying a bike. My friend suggested to me I need to compromise either looks or power as I will not find something that consists of both qualities. While going through certain articles I found this Yamaha MT-15 and trust me I could not take my eyes off it. The amazing sporty looks Read More

    I loved the concept of the Yamaha MT-15 ever since it was first launched here in Malaysia. I was among the first people in my known acquaintance to have test ridden and bought this bike. I did ride the R15 as my brother owns one and I used to think no other bike in this class can beat it. But Read More

    Yamaha has really outdone themselves with their Yamaha MT 15. I have been using this bike for just over a month and I cannot get over how amazing its performance is. The 155 cc engine glides through the Malaysian roads and even performs surprisingly well for highways. The seats are also very comfortable despite their raised height and combined with Read More
