Yamaha Motor launched its new 150cc naked street motorcycle the M-Slaz, which was previously rumoured to be MT-15 in the Thailand market. The motorcycle is priced at 89,500 Thai Baht which is approximately Rs 1.66 lakh.
The naked version of the YZF-R15, the M-Slaz features Kawazaki Z series inspired headlamp unit which is more angular and razor-sharp. The headlamps features LED lights, the same goes for the tail lamp. The digital instrument cluster comes with blue background lights. It shows a host of information and is positioned without clutter. The motorcycle also comes with a push start button similar to the other naked model of Yamaha such as MT09 and MT07.
The M-Slaz features upside down 37mm suspension in front and mono suspension at the rear. The naked motorcycle in the absence of fairing will add fenders on both sides of the fuel tank. Spilt seat, wide handle bar and body graphics are also part of the M-Slaz.
The M-Slaz is powered by the same 149cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine in the fully fared R15 which is currently sold in India. The engine is mated to six speed sport transmission. The specification is not released yet while reports suggest around 17bhp and 15Nm of torque.
