Based on the YZF-R15, the Roadster will see some significant additions in terms of on-board tech and hardware

Yamaha Motors India is all set to update the YZF-R15-based Roadster soon. The entry-level performance model will likely arrive in April or June 2022. The 2022 MT-15 will get several additional features missing from its predecessor.

Here are the details that we know so far about the upcoming TVS Apache RTR 160 4V and the Hero Xtreme 160 4V rival.

The updated motorcycle will feature some new hardware and an updated engine

The MT-15 will borrow the latest suspension setup from its faired sibling – YZF-R15. It includes the upside-down forks that will replace the conventional telescopic units. The rear profile will feature the regular preload-adjustable monoshock that we have seen on the discontinued model. The MT-15 will most likely also feature a dual-channel ABS setup instead of a single-channel unit.

Updated Instrument console

The highlighted feature will be a new Bluetooth enabled instrument cluster which will be lifted from the updated YZF-R15 V4

The upcoming MT-15 Roadster will get the new full LCD instrument cluster with Bluetooth-based connectivity feature that we have seen on the YZF-R15 V4.0. The updated instrument cluster provides plenty of important information to the rider including average speed, gear position indicator, coolant temperature. It even has two different display modes- Street and Sport.

The Bluetooth connectivity option lets the rider connect their Smartphones using the Y connect app. This allows getting information together with call alert, SMS, email notification, phone battery level on the display. The smartphone application lets the rider access various information including, last parking location, malfunction notification, and ride analytics.
