Why Yamaha MT-15 Makes the Best Choice of Naked Bike for You?

Powerful and efficient engine

The Yamaha MT-15 has a 155 cc, variable valve actuation, liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that delivers 19 hp at 10,000 rpm and 14.7 Nm of torque at 8,500 rpm. This means that the bike has a high power-to-weight ratio and can accelerate quickly and smoothly. The variable valve actuation system also ensures that the engine performs well at both low and high speeds, giving the rider a responsive and versatile riding experience. The liquid-cooling system helps to maintain the optimal temperature of the engine and prevent overheating, which is especially important in the hot and humid climate of Malaysia. The engine is also designed to be fuel-efficient and can achieve a mileage of up to 45 km/l, which is great for saving money and reducing emissions.

Smooth and stable transmission

The Yamaha MT-15 has a six-speed, slipper and assist equipped gearbox and a chain final drive. The six-speed gearbox allows the rider to choose the best gear ratio for different road conditions and riding styles, while the slipper and assist clutch reduces the clutch lever effort by up to 18% and prevents rear wheel hop during aggressive downshifts. The chain final drive is easy to maintain and provides a smooth and direct power delivery from the engine to the rear wheel. The transmission system of the Yamaha MT-15 ensures that the rider has a smooth and stable ride with minimal vibrations and noise.

Agile and comfortable suspension

The Yamaha MT-15 has upside-down forks with gold anodised fork legs at the front end and a preload-adjustable monoshock at the back. The upside-down forks provide a better handling and stability than conventional forks, as they have a lower unsprung weight and a higher rigidity. The gold anodised fork legs add a touch of style and elegance to the bike’s appearance. The preload-adjustable monoshock allows the rider to adjust the suspension stiffness according to their preference and load, giving them a comfortable ride on different road surfaces. The suspension system of the Yamaha MT-15 is designed to provide an agile and comfortable ride with excellent cornering performance and shock absorption.

Reliable and safe braking

The Yamaha MT-15 has single hydraulic disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, with a large 282mm front disc. The disc brakes provide a strong and consistent braking performance in all weather conditions, as they are less prone to fading or overheating than drum brakes. The disc brakes also have a better modulation and feedback than drum brakes, giving the rider more control over the braking force. The single disc brakes are also lighter and cheaper than dual disc brakes, which helps to reduce the overall weight and cost of the bike. The braking system of the Yamaha MT-15 is designed to provide a reliable and safe braking performance with minimal maintenance in the long run.  The Yamaha MT-15 comes equipped with wide 140mm rear tyres that provide excellent grip and ensure sure road holding. These tyres are designed to provide maximum traction on any terrain, ensuring that the rider can easily navigate through rough roads and sharp turns. The wide rear tyres also provide better stability and balance, making it easier for the rider to maintain control of the bike at high speeds. Overall, the Yamaha MT-15’s wide rear tyres are an excellent addition to the bike’s already impressive list of features and specifications.

Stylish and functional design

The Yamaha MT-15 has a naked sports bike design that features a monochrome LCD instrument panelLED lighting, and three new colours for the Malaysian market: Icon Blue, Midnight Black, and Cyan Storm, with matching wheels in the same colour for the Cyan Storm variant. The naked sports bike design gives the bike a sporty and aggressive look that appeals to young riders who want to stand out from the crowd. The monochrome LCD instrument panel displays all the necessary information such as speed, rpm, fuel level, gear position, odometer, trip meter, clock, etc., in a clear and easy-to-read manner. The Twin eyed Position LED headlight provides a bright and energy-efficient illumination for both day and night riding, as well as enhancing the bike’s visibility and appearance. The three new colours are vibrant and eye-catching, especially the Cyan Storm variant that has matching wheels in the same colour, giving the bike a unique and distinctive look. The design of the Yamaha MT-15 is designed to be both stylish and functional, reflecting its performance and personality.
