The New Yamaha MT-15 is longer at 2020 mm, wider at 800 mm and comes with a longer wheelbase of 1335 mm. However, the MT-15 is shorter than the R15 at 1070 mm. Apart from the looks, the other change on the MT-15 with respect to the R15 is the swingarm. The MT-15 gets a regular box-section swingarm as compared to the cast Aluminium swingarm that the R15 gets.
The MT-15 will get regular telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear along with a 282 mm disc at the front and a 200 mm disc at the rear. The MT-15 carries a typical streetfighter design, with a sculpted fuel tank, LED lamp and an aggressive stance.
