Top 5 highlights of yamaha mt 15 2022 with review
Yamaha has always gone above and beyond to make their customer’s riding experience a lot more enjoyable and safe. Yamaha keeps on introducing new and updated versions of their vehicle to keep up with the trend.
The Yamaha MT-15 has finally received some bling. While this was appropriate for a specific international bike, Yamaha India opted for a telescopic fork to control costs.
The addition of the USD fork not only increases its visual quotient, but also improves the new Yamaha MT-15’s handling dynamics too. Further improving its handling is the inclusion of the premium cast aluminum swingarm that replaces the old box-section unit seen on its predecessor.
