    This bike is indeed a Big Disappointment. Even if the cost cutting is taken into consideration, how do you manage to price teh MT15 at just 3300 INR less than the R15. Does that mean the Extra ABS channel and fairings on the R15 V3 is worth only 3300?

    Nonetheless there are going to be poor chaps buying this bike.

    I still think the price is a bit unjustified. They removed a lot of things in name of cost cutting. It's basically a naked R15 and at this point a clear cut indication that FZ25 is more sensible to buy.

    Bike is awesome. Price difference between r15 should ve been bigger as they removed 1 ch abs, fairing, al swing arm and perhaps other stuff.

    I wasn't interested in it when I had r15 v1. Now I no longer have it, somehow my interest is very high.

    Maybe down the line in few years I will trade in my duke 390 for one.

    My younger cousin brother was eagerly waiting to buy MT-15 but now it's not a VFM deal anymore. He hated the aggressive riding position of the R15v3 but I told him now that's the better deal for the money.

    I was expecting a ₹1.20-1.25 lakh ex-showroom price with dual channel ABS. With no fairing and cheaper swingarm and single channel ABS shouldn't it be more ₹10,000 lesser than the current ₹1.36 lakh ex-showroom.

    Yamaha could've easily filled that pricing void inbetween Duke 125 and R15v3 but seems to have become greedy thinking Indians would buy the MT-15 just for the looks with cheaper components.

    A disappointing launch indeed!
