Is Yamaha updating its models?

KUALA LUMPUR: Yamaha Malaysia never stays calm, the brand stays busy planning new models and updates for its customers. It was only last month that the company launched the 2022 Yamaha 135LC Fibefore that we got the updated 2022 X-Max 250. Not to mention the price update (it counts in the change, doesn’t it) that HLYM gave to the Ego series, NMaxand NVX.

Moving on to the present day, Yamaha Malaysia’s social media platform tells us that the brand’s ever-popular and famous supercub, the Yamaha Y15ZR gets an update for the 2022 model year. Don’t worry, no price hike this time (the model fetched one in 2020 from RM8,168 to its current price of RM8,498).

So, what’s up with the 2022 Yamaha Y15ZR?

Yamaha Malaysia has introduced new color options and new graphics for this stunner. Thus, making the deal all the more attractive to buyers. Who can now choose the Y15ZR in one of the following color choices: cyan, blue, silver and green.

Of the four new color choices, silver caught our attention the most. Mainly because of its stunning pairing with red finished alloy wheels. However, the other options seem no less and ultimately it’s a matter of personal choice.
