Yamaha launched the M Slaz in Thailand last year. Powering the Yamaha M Slaz is the same engine that powers the much-loved YZF-R15. In essence, the M-Slaz is nothing but the street naked version of the R15. While there were some rumours about the bike launching in India, it is confirmed that it would not come to India.
Yamaha M-Slaz (MT-15), the smallest in the MT series, would make for an interesting addition to the entry-level performance bike category in India. However, after its 2 years in the Thailand markets, it still shows no sign of coming to India. It was a naked street bike and would sit above the R15. Earlier, it was speculated that the bike would launch in Festive season 2016, which had not. It runs on a 150 CC engine, similar to the Yamaha R15. If launched in India, it would compete with Suzuki Gixxer, TVS Apache RTR 160 4V and Honda CB Hornet 160R.
