2015 Yamaha M-Slaz

Price of the new Yamaha M-Slaz starts from THB 89,500 (or INR 1.66 lakh).

On display at the 2015 Thailand Motor Expo, 2015 Yamaha M-Slaz is yet another 150 cc motorcycle from Yamaha. Powered by the same engine which is seen on board the Yamaha R15, the new M-Slaz was officially launched in Thailand today. Though Yamaha M-Slaz is the naked sibling of R15, it is surprisingly priced higher at THB 89,500 (or INR 1.66 lakh).

Featuring a sleek and sporty design, inspired by the MT-07 and MT-09, the new Yamaha naked bike is built on the Delta box chassis, same as R15. Power comes from a single cylinder 149 cc liquid cooled engine that generates peak power of 17 PS at 8,000 rpm and peak torque of 15 Nm at 7,500 rpm. Transmission is taken care by the same 6 speed gearbox, as seen on board the R15.
