It’s true. The era of fuel injection is already coming to Malaysia for bikes under 150cc. This time it is Yamaha 115Z and 115ZR. (more…)

It is only 4 years since the introduction of Yamaha 135LC in 2006, but this moped already has surpassed everything that makes it the King Of Moped. With the entry of Yamaha 135LC ES, the King gets better and unrivaled by any other manufacturer. Many of us already thinking to get the 2011 Yamaha 135LC, but this one is ahead of its competition and makes other manufacturer seems old, conservative and lazy because they don’t make bike to fight with the King.
2007 is the year for the first model of Yamaha 135LC Extreme Spirit launched in Malaysia.
There is Suzuki Belang R150 here in Malaysia, but that one is in another category. Belang R150 is the best moped in 150cc category, if only there is upgraded version of Yamaha 135LC to be Yamaha 150LC, of course, it will fight fiercely with Belang R150. Even if there is no Yamaha 150LC, we can just use the 57mm engine block of FZ-150i to 135LC and there you have 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.
In terms of sticker design, this one look okay. Compared to the Yamaha Mio 125 MotoGP Rossi Edition in Thailand, that one is purely desirable. But, you can have the cover set sprayed and embed the sticker of the Mio 125 to the Ego LC.

My friend Syark have these pictures shown on his FB. It features his bike modified with mono Honda NSR150 SP swing arm which is built based on a famous 2-stroke bike rode by Micheal Doohan by NSR Racing Technology in the World of Grand Prix.
This mono swing arm is commonly known as pro-Arm suspension which made Honda bike famous at that time. Honda NSR150 SP is considered entry-level superbike 150cc and 2-stroke type engine.
The mixture of Honda technology with Yamaha’s King of Moped makes Syark’s bike really stands out and I guess, the handling must be good as well.
More pictures after the jump. You can also see Syark’s friend’s 135LC are also equipped with Honda’s pro-Arm suspension! (more…)
