Hong Leong Yamaha has released new addition to its family that is Yamaha Ego LC! I have heard rumors earlier at GTMax Motors and it is true. This bike is the same model with Yamaha Mio 125 in Thailand and Yamaha Luvias 125 in Vietnam.
I think this bike is a little too late to arrive in Malaysian shore. The interest for it have dropped since it is already being launched in Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam long time ago. In fact, I already assumed that we will never get to see this bike in Malaysia and ready to accept it. Now, we are eager to get the 2011 Yamaha Jupiter MX which is 135LC with 5-speed, but there are no news for it right now whether it is going to be here or not.
Anyway, what’s great about this Ego LC is the bike under seat compartment at 12.8 liter which can accommodate helmet easily. This volume is much bigger compared to my Lagenda 115ZR under seat compartment at only 7.0 liter.
In terms of sticker design, this one look okay. Compared to the Yamaha Mio 125 MotoGP Rossi Edition in Thailand, that one is purely desirable. But, you can have the cover set sprayed and embed the sticker of the Mio 125 to the Ego LC.
