Factory teams that compete in MotoGP always make sure that they distil down the pedigree to their road-legal offerings as well. In the lower end of the spectrum, the derivations are majorly limited to aesthetic and particularly, MotoGP-inspired paint jobs. Yamaha India has been following that trend since time immemorial. The Japanese bikemaker recently launched the MotoGP edition of the FZ25 and now, it has extended the same paint job to the MT-15 as well. The Monster Energy Yamaha Moto GP inspired Edition of the MT-15 is priced at Rs. 1,47,900 (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The all-new MT-15 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition gets Yamaha Moto GP branding on the tank shrouds, the fuel tank and side panels, outlining its Racing background.
