Recently, we saw a dealer-level modified Yamaha MT-15 in a shade of white colour and with orange rims. Now, we stumbled upon more dealer-level paint-job modifications for the new model. Although the paint scheme is available officially in the international markets, Yamaha decided to stick with other two paint options for India – Metallic Black and Dark Matt Blue.
The first motorcycle seen in the video gets more orange-coloured body panels than the previously seen paint-mod. The orange highlights can be seen on the bar-end weights, top of the fuel tank and shrouds, grab rail and on the pillion footrest mounts. The fuel tank shrouds also get a black and white dual tone finish with orange MT-15 graphics.
The same dealership also offers a minor paint modification on the official Dark Matt Blue colour. The second motorcycle, as seen in the video, gets fluorescent yellow treatment to the wheels, fuel tank shrouds and bar-end weight. The second MT-15 also gets a black tip to the exhaust. The stock motorcycle, for reference, gets a brushed aluminium finish to the exhaust tip.
This is a dealer-level modification, and so, it's quite expensive - INR 22,000 for the white and orange coloured model and INR 6,500 for the blue and black coloured model. The dealership registers the bike with the same paint on the Registration Certificate, and so, the owner doesn't need to visit the RTO. Also, the naked roadster can be accessorised with various official accessories such as tank pad, seat cover, tandem footrest, skid plate, USB charger and mobile phone holder.
The custom painted motorcycles have no mechanical changes. They are powered by a 155 cc liquid-cooled FI engine that is mated to a six-speed gearbox with assist and slipper clutch. This engine delivers 19.3 PS of max power at 10,000 rpm and 14.7 Nm of peak torque at 8,500 rpm.
