The Japanese motorcycle maker, Yamaha, was among one of the first motorcycle makers to revolutionize the 150cc market in India by the introduction of motorcycles like the YZF-R15 and FZ16. According to a report published by our friends at BikeWale.com, the company is looking forward to introduce the M-Slaz in the Indian market soon.
Though the M-Slaz is positioned as a commuter motorcycle but when compared to other 150cc commuters in India it looks way more premium than others. It comes with highly aggressive looks that can shame much bigger capacity motorcycles and features like Upside-Down Forks, Multi-link rear suspension with monoshock and front and rear disc brakes makes it a much more costly proposition than the general 150cc motorcycles present in India.
The motorcycle has been already launched in Thailand at TBH 89,500 which is around Rs 1.66 lakh when converted to the Indian currency. As for now, nothing concrete can be guessed about its price in India as our market being among the most price sensitive ones, it will be hard to say what kind of response the M-Slaz will receive if launched at a price more than Rs 1.5 Lakh.
