Hong Leong Yamaha Motor Sdn Bhd (HLYM) celebrated their Dealers’ Appreciation Chinese New Year dinner with the introduction of the 2nd generation Yamaha Ego LC with YMJET-FI, fuel injection system. The activity-filled dinner event was attended by Hong Leong Yamaha Motor dealers and guests from across the nation. They were feted by a Lion Dance and other entertainment performances to usher in the year of the horse in style.
Hong Leong Yamaha Malaysia introduced another automatic bikes today with YMJET_FI system that is the Yamaha Ego LC 125 YMJET_FI. This makes it the 3rd bike under 150cc that equipped with the fuel injection system. In Indonesia, this model is known as the Xeon RC. Powered with 124.86cc of liquid-cooled engine, this bike maxes out 11.4PS at 9,000RPM with 10.4Nm at 6,500RPM. Fuel tank can fills 3.8 liter which seems like a small number, but since this Ego LC comes with the YMJET_FI system, it will be fuel-efficient and can still go far enough.

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.

Yamaha Thailand has released a teaser about the facelifted Mio 125i in the Yamaha racing blue colour. It has been a couple of years of this bike launched in Thailand, this is the right time to have it updated. The headlight is no longer separated into double cluster, but a big one on the center of the bike like a ‘normal’ Ego. It is looking fresh. Some are saying that this new Mio features SSS or Side Stand Switch, which works by cutting of the engine power if you got the side stand pulled out. This small feature is a welcomed feature because I sometimes also forgot to pull in the side stand when riding my bike.
I think I have been visiting GTMax Motors almost every week. This week, I found out that they already got the new Yamaha Ego LC at their showroom. Since they know me, they allow me to take pictures of the bike.
The salesman there are very helpful and tell me a lot of information about the bike. You should go here even if you were just looking for bikes and not buying it.
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.
This bike looks almost the same like the Yamaha Mio 125 in Thailand with exception for the front headlight.
I also got to know some rumors about this Mio 125 which is said to be launched in Malaysia soon with the name of Ego LC. I heard this when I check out bikes available at GTMax Motor and asked them about the 135LC 5-speed whether it is going to be launched in Malaysia. The salesman said that there are no news about it yet, but there are some rumors about the Ego LC. From my observation, Ego LC should be the same like the Mio 125 in Thailand, maybe with a little bit of front headlight change.
