Yamaha has launched a brand new entry-level, 125cc scooter which they say offers ‘charismatic, sporty style together with lively engine performance, premium class comfort and remarkable fuel economy’.
It’s powered by a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 125cc engine and produces 12bhp @ 7500rpm of power and 8.6lb-ft @ 7250rpm of torque.
It features a four-valve cylinder head with variable valve actuation for better performance and an offset cylinder with forged piston and DiASil coating which contribute towards increased fuel economy. According to Yamaha it will achieve 45.7km/litre in WMTC mode – a test cycle – which is 129mpg to us…
The newly designed lightweight frame has vibration-absorbing engine mounts and features a side-mounted radiator and a cooling fan on the side of the engine for optimum cooling performance – and it also allows for a more spacious footboard area as it opens up space at the front of the engine.
It’s equipped with ABS as standard with 230mm front and rear disc brakes, twin shock rear suspension, LED headlight and brake light and full LCD instrumentation. The fuel tank will hold 6.6 litres and it weighs 127kg.
There are large diameter 13-inch wheels fitted with wide tyres and storage space under the 765mm seat for one large full-face helmet. The dual seat has a spring mechanism that keeps the seat open when accessing the storage space.
Colour options include: red, titanium, milky white and midnight black.
Pricing on the A1 licence compliant model is expected to be announced at the beginning of June and they will be arriving in dealers at the end of June/beginning of July.
