The launch of Yamaha MT15 V2.0 India is fast approaching as some dealers have started accepting reservations for the new bike for a token amount ranging from 5,000 to 10,000. The previously sold MT15 V1 has sat discontinued for quite some time now, as it makes way for the next next-gen model which will likely host several new updates. While the launch schedule is still a mystery, dealer sources add that pricing for the new bike should be in place later this month.

As for updates, the bike will likely get a new paint scheme for a refreshed look. Other than that, Yamaha could also update the suspension kit on the bike. The previously found telescopic fork could be replaced with a gold fork, while the rear suspension could remain unchanged.

Along with an updated suspension kit, the bike could also feature a quick shifter and traction control like its faired sibling, the YZF-R15 V4. Moreover, the company could also elaborately modify the exterior design of the motorcycle for more appeal.

Its powertrain should remain unchanged with the latest update. It will continue to be powered by the same 155cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine also found on the YZF-R15. This engine is equipped with VVA technology and has a 6-speed gearbox. This develops 18.1 bhp of peak power at 10,000 rpm and 14.2 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm. A similar release is also expected in its new iteration.

When it comes to pricing, the updated MT15 V2 might cost more than the outgoing model which was previously priced at 1.46 lakh (old showroom).
