Yamaha Indonesia just launched the upgraded version of the popular 125cc Xeon automatic bike to RC version which features a lot of improvements. This includes the major upgrade that is the use of YMJET_FI system that should give better fuel efficiency of the already fuel saving bike before. It comes in 5 exciting colours and this time the livery is not disappointing. It is looking fresh and nicely done. Truly ‘Semakin Tak Tertandingi’ (More Unbeatable):
The bike already comes with a large luggage underseat box that can fit few items for daily riders. It is a common trend now to have a bigger capacity underseat box since this helps rider a lot in bringing the essential items such as rain coat or even power bank hand phone charger.
The brake lever also got some nice feature named Smart Lock System. This system actually locks the brake so that you can have a safer starting since the bike won’t jumped off away from you when you accidently twist the throttle while starting it up. Smart Lock System also helps when you park a bike a descent spot.
Smart Stand Switch. I really love this feature. I remember using it when I use to have Honda iCon 110. The system will cut off power when you push out the side stand and kill the engine. This also means that you can’t start the engine until the side stand is tucked in. You can always be sure that your side stand won’t jolt the asphalt with this feature.
One more thing that I like to see is the tail light if this new Xeon RC. In this few years, Yamaha are terrible in designing a proper beauty for a tail light design. This one looks better that the one for Yamaha Lagenda and Ego LC. I’m hoping more Yamaha products will have a better tail light soon. I have seen Honda and Kawasaki are now getting better in designing a tail light. Just look how nice the 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 250R tail light looks like.
