2017 Yamaha Vixion serba baru dilancarkan di Indonesia – Rp26juta (RM8,487.35)

Yamaha Motor Indonesia memperkenalkan model serba baru Vixion untuk 2017 dengan beberapa peningkatan yang tiada pada model sebelum ini. Yamaha Vixion juga dikenali sebagai FZ150i di Malaysia. Salah satu penambahbaikan yang telah dibuat adalah dengan penggunaan sistem klac yang baru.

Jentera 150cc Vixion ini menerima sistem klac baharu dengan fungsi Bantu & Gelincir (Assist & Slipper). Sistem Klac Bantu & Gelincir ini biasanya digunakan pada motosikal berkuasa tinggi dalam 500cc ke atas. Namun dapat dilihat tren masa kini dimana jentera 250cc turut menerima sistem ini. Pada jentera 150cc ini, kami merasakan fungsi klac sebegini adalah sedikit ‘overkill’.   Continue reading “2017 Yamaha Vixion serba baru dilancarkan di Indonesia – Rp26juta (RM8,487.35)”

2014 Yamaha YZF-R15 arriving to Indonesia on 23rd April – Rp 28 million (RM7,952)

R15-Indonesia

Our neighbouring country, Indonesia, will be getting the Yamaha YZF-R15 on 23rd April which is just few days away. YZF-R15 has been talked about for a very long time in Asean especially in Malaysia and Indonesia due to the resemblances of the engine and chassis, but differs in the fairing type of the Yamaha FZ150i or the Vixion in Indonesia. Many riders of FZ150i in Malaysia and Vixion riders in Indonesia are asking why the YZF-R15 are not marketed here since the engine and chassis are the same which should be no problem in terms of maintenance and parts availability. This dream has come true to Indonesian riders as they are getting the YZF-R15 soon, but not yet to Malaysian riders. Arrghhh!!! Yeah, I feel you.

2014-Yamaha-FZ150i-Malaysia-002

Three pictures that looks like official studio pictures of 2014 Yamaha FZ150i has leaked. Based on my observation, everything is looking almost perfect to be the real thing. HLYM website still doesn’t show anything yet about this FZ150i. We can see the small LC4V writings on the front mudguard, the accurate position of the FZ150i emblem on the side of the top fairing and the Deltabox sign on the frame. We can also notice the omission of the kick starter which follow the spyshot we have seen earlier.  Continue reading “2014 Yamaha FZ150i studio pictures leaked – is this the real thing?

The 2014 FZ-150i has been spotted earlier in July 2013. Now, there are few more pictures of the bike circulating on the net including FB pages. The particular bike above is still being taped the model name, but we can see the engine is engraved with Yamaha. Comparing this picture with the Vixion in Indonesia, it looks like this is the FZ-150i which will make it to Malaysia soon.

The specs includes new rear brake disc system, the updated styling and headlamp. Also seen in the picture above is the missing of the kick starter, which we can’t confirm whether this is the final model or not. It still carries the single-cylinder 149.8cc liquid-cooled SOHC engine with fuel injection system. Power maxes out at 16.59PS at 8,500RPM and torque pulling 14.5Nm at 7,500RPM.
