Is Yamaha MT 15 counted as a Sportsbike?

In the Indian market, the Yamaha R15 has seen tremendous success. But not everyone is able to ride a motorcycle in such a dedicated manner. The MT-15 enters the picture at this point. Although it is designed to do municipal chores rather than track days, it has the same foundations. The MT-15 is a streetfighter, while the R15 is a sporting bike.
Yamaha Motor India has added the new Metallic Black DLX paint to the colour scheme. Alongside the Ice Fluo-Vermillion, Racing Blue, and Cyan Storm colour schemes, this additional paint option will be available for purchase. The alloy wheels come in a variety of shades for each colour selection.
Engine and Gearbox
The Yamaha MT-15's 155 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine provides the same power as the R15's. It produces a maximum torque of 14.1 Nm at 7,500 rpm and 18.14 horsepower at 10,000 rpm. It has a slip-and-assist clutch and is linked to a 6-speed gearbox. It's crucial to remember that Yamaha only offers the quickshifter on the R15; the MT-15 does not have it. In order to guarantee that the power is dispersed evenly across the rpm range, the engine additionally has variable valve actuators.
The bike's performance is very amazing, and it accelerates faster in rolling motion than the R15. Although they are slight and only apparent when riding at the top, vibrations still continue. The engine is quite tractable, and it's simple to maintain speed in sixth gear as low as 24 kmph. 
Features-wise, the MT-15 has a digital instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity through the Y-Connect smartphone app. In addition, there is a side-stand engine shutdown mechanism and a dual-channel anti-lock braking system. Additionally, Yamaha provides traction control, which, in the event that it senses tyre slippage, turns off power.
High-end safety features, including the Traction Control System, Power Modes, ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), Slipper Clutch, and Brake Assist, are all included on the Yamaha MT 15. The majority of the safety measures depend on variation.
Suspension and Brakes
The Yamaha MT-15 has a linked-type monocross at the back and a telescopic upside-down fork up front. It is constructed on the Deltabox frame. For improved braking control and to minimise sliding in slick weather, the bike has dual-channel ABS and 282mm disc brakes up front and 220mm in the back.
Three variations of the Yamaha MT 15 are available: the Yamaha MT 15 V2 STD, the Yamaha MT 15 V2 Deluxe, and the Yamaha MT 15 V2 MotoGP Edition. The most expensive version, the Yamaha MT-15 Version 2.0 MotoGP Edition, costs Rs. 1,73,200.
