    Hi All,

    Did anyone noticed the leak photos of MT 15? The grab rail bar looks disapointing.Name:  Screenshot_20190307-005828~2.jpg

    Then remove them after buying. Originally it never had grab handles.

    Holy cow! Why does this look so much worse than the international variant? Looking at this vs the thread starter image is like looking at two different bikes

    I mean just look at the below machine and tell me the above version isn't a travesty

    Yamaha have had to do reductions because of the competetive market, but atleast colour schemes should have been better, it's the same colour as of fzs v3.
    Here again a leaked video of it https://youtu.be/nECVe42_4dk , Enjoy!

    Looks decent. I believe its more like Theater print vs cam print for the photos from the first post and spy/leaked shots.

    Seeing this bike in real life would give a better picture.

    Ok heres the thing.

    In Thailand, the original spec bike costs 98500 Thai Baht which is roughly 216,500 INR
    In Indonesia, the cost is 35,333,000 Rupiah which is roughly 172,300 INR

    Now both of the above are most likely exshowroom prices. Now question is will some buy it when:

    Duke 200 = 1.51
    Duke 250 = 1.81

    ?

    LOL makes sense. Can you also provide the prices of R15 v3, Duke 200/250 in these countries for comparison....

    Ofcourse it is. Yamaha went away with the USD forks and the Cast metal swingarm. Both of those were quite a big part of the look and charm of the bike, now it loos like a weird modded FZ16.

    seeing this, I feel FZ-15 looks a lot better.
