This is not a review yet, just a post of random pictures of Shinko Evo Sr877 tyre fitted to my Lagenda 115ZR. Looks great. Sands are easily stick to the tyre (I think because of the medium-soft compound), which is a good thing. The tread pattern is quite exclusive since Shinko tyres are hard to find.
The retail price for SR877 Evo is between RM118~RM188, depending on the sizes.
There are many more underbone bikes that get some love from Yoshimura from Japan. I have checked their website and found out that there are already full system exhaust pipes and some camshaft from them. The bikes that get to see the light of modification from Yoshimura other than the Yamaha Lagenda 115Z, Yamaha 135LC and Honda Wave 125X are Suzuki FJ110 (Belang R150 smaller brother aka Raider 110), Suzuki Axelo 125, Yamaha Ego S, Yamaha Ego LC aka Mio 125 or Xeon, Yamaha Vega R 110 and Honda Icon 110AT.
Another great read from the Yamaha Lagenda 115Z/ZR Sales Guide brochure which include a lot of information about the how the Lagenda 115Z/ZR is born. Many aspect of the bike is being explained like the meter cluster design which is taken from the Leather & Metal interior design of supercar. This might seems over the top, but, it is a risk Yamaha has take to make their bike the best looking in its class.
This review has been long due. I actually need to update my previous review when my bike reach 1,000km, but it is now at 1,406km. Many readers has asked to update the review after they have read my first review, so, here goes. Let me get this review done first by reviewing some problems that I have encountered with this bike all along. Continue reading “My Yamaha Lagenda 115ZR 55-1406km Review”
Pump your ride with the Lagenda 115Z accessories that are available from Yamaha. You can get the Tail Lamp Protector to alter the style of your controversial tail lamp. You can also install the Indicator Garnish to make your front end looks more cyber. Add the Visor to make your bike looks like a grass-hopper or and the Meter Panel Cover for better protection to you meter cluster and easy for you to read the instrument during shiny sunny day.
This is a test bike from Maju Motor. It is fitted with 32mm UMA Racing carburetor with is way much bigger than the original stock carburetor at 17mm. Using larger carburetor is one of my favourite modification since this will definitely increase the horsepower and torque at the same time. Fuel economy is not in the equation here since it is not being considered. I still remember my Honda C70 that I use to have when I studied at university in Johor, that is fitted with RX-S 100 carburetor at 22mm, I think. The power at high RPM is enormous and surprisingly, the stock cylinder and casing of the Honda C70 can bear the torture.
This red Yamaha Lagenda 115Z also fitted with Racing Boy SP399 3-spoke wheel in white that matches the overall look. SP399 is one of the most popular wheel in modification scene since it is lightweight, high quality, easy to clean have and nice style. Anyway, this wheel design is not originally from RB since it is being used as a stock wheel for Yamaha Y125ZR in 2001 by Enkei.
This bike is still in progress of modifying, so, I shall visit the shop again to see what it looks like when everything is well finished and ready to run.
The third model of the Yamaha Lagenda series get a styling update which is very noticeable with the new design of the headlamp. It is has been further separated and some people (including me) thinks that this headlamp looks like an owl’s eyes. Angry and yet stylish.
There are four colours available at this time that is green, black, blue and red. The one in red is the most beautiful of them all.
At this period of time, Lagenda has become more popular than ever and can be fight against Honda EX5 and Wave in a very competitive battle. Still, it is made popular by the Malaysian Cub Prix bikes by Motul YYPang with wins many race in the series.
