I thought this was a neat video. A bit of reckless riding.

I was really impressed that a 155cc bike could run that fast!

87 mph. isn't all that great for 155 cc bike. My old Yamaha DT 100 would hit 65 mph. Still, would make someone a great city bike. I like it's looks.

Yeah but that is a 2 stroke more power than a 4 stroke of the same size.  My old 200cc 4 stroke dual sport would run 60 wide open on flat ground. Also think of the 125cc Grom. It is slow!

I don't know what you mean by "it's more powerful than a 4-stroke the same size." Maybe a 2-stroke is a little quicker to get up to speed but the Honda XL100's top end was right about the same as my Yamaha DT 100. I guess we can agree the MT 15 isn't fast but who would expect it to be?

Gearing has a lot to do with the top end speed.

 

In general 2 strokes make more power per cc than 4 strokes do. If you have a 250cc 2 stroke and a 250cc 4 stroke. The 2 stroke will make more power.

YZ 250 2 stroke 48.8hp at 8,800 rpm

YZ250F four stroke 33 horsepower old version 41.76 horsepower from the 2019 YZ250F at  12,900 rpm

I would not call that equal.

 

The MT15 was faster than I expected. Little booger looks so fun.
