The M-SLAZ is a brand new naked motorcycle based on the YFZ R-15 for the Thailand market. This bike takes its inspiration from Yamaha’s naked MT series of motorcycles and has a sharp, edgy design. The M-SLAZ could also be a preview of what to expect from the next version 3 R15. Yamaha hasn’t disclosed any engine details at the moment. However, there are quite a few changes from the current R15 v2 that you can read about here. Scroll down for some images of the new M-SLAZ.
Aggressive bodywork is more angular than the bigger MTs. Should give the Yamaha M-SLAZ plenty of street presence
Wild LED headlamp is inspired from the bigger MT-07 and features a parking lamp
Fat upside down forks are new and could make it to the next gen R15
The switchgear appears to be of the same high quality we’re used to from Yamaha but features a new sliding style kill switch
Funky dials are fully digital and are a brand new design from Yamaha
The rear features an upswept exhaust, single disc brake and a monoshock. The wheels look similar to the YZF-R3
Slim tail features a minimalist LED brake light and not much for a pillion to grab onto
All Yamaha has shared about the engine is this image. Green core technology, perhaps?
