No doubt about it, 2011 Yamaha 135LC with 5-speed will definitely come to Malaysia soon. Very soon.
I have asked one of the management of Yamaha dealer in Malaysia about the 5-speed 135LC, and the reply is positive as he said that it is on test now. But, when I asked when it is going to be launched, he said that he don’t know about it yet.
One of my friend also have gone to HLYM in Sungai Buloh twice and asked about the availability of this bike, and again, the reply is positive as he said that this bike is on test.
Further last week, I have asked my friend at SCK Motor the same thing and he said that one of the SCK Motor rider in Malaysian Cub Prix has test this bike.
Today, I have found the pictures of the Yamaha 135LC 5-speed on test in PLUS highway at the best Yamaha 135LC forum page at yamahat135.com.
So, starts saving your money to get your hands on the first model of the 5-speed 135LC! I think at least RM2500 is needed for the down payment. Price is estimated(my estimation) at RM6900 for the auto-clutch. This bike is rumoured to be launched on Mac, April or May 2011.
My million thanks to whom who have taken this snapshot.
