The Yamaha MT-15 has been snapped again in Indonesia, this time by a TMCblog reader. The blog post suggests that the entry-level MT-series motorcycle could be offered with a keyless ignition system.

The suspicion that the Yamaha MT-15 could feature a keyless starter is reported due to the absence of the electric start button in its traditional place which is the switchgear console on the handlebar.

The naked version of the Yamaha R15 is based on the same Delta frame and is expected to feature the same powertrain without significant changes. The MT-15 would be suspended by an inverted telescopic fork, and what appears to be the same monoshock. The salient features include an LED headlamp (as per reports), a new LED taillamp, new turn indicators and switchgear clusters (at least on the right hand side alone).
