Is Yamaha MT 15 No. 1 bike in India?

In the Indian market, the Yamaha MT15 has achieved great success. But not everyone is able to ride a motorcycle with that level of dedication to their riding position. The MT-15 enters the picture at this point. Although it is designed to perform city duties rather than track days, it has the same foundations. The MT-15 is a streetfighter, whereas the R15 is a sports bike.
 
Design
The Yamaha MT-15's design style is derived from the more strong MT motorcycle lineup. It comes with a projector headlamp and two LED daytime running lamps. There's a slender rear section and a powerful fuel tank. The brand also offers coloured alloy wheels, depending on the variant. The motorcycle's streetfighter appearance is further enhanced by the golden finish on the front forks. Instead of the box swingarm that was previously offered, Yamaha now uses a Deltabox frame with an aluminium swingarm. It has 17-inch alloy wheels and a seat height of 810 mm.
