I’m happy and very excited to see that GTMax Motors in Shah Alam already have the stock for the 2011 Yamaha 135LC Extreme Spirit. I’ve spend a good time there to snap photos and checking details of the bike for you all loyal MM readers to see. 66 more photos and the details after the jump!

I just read Berita Harian today news about the launching of 2011 Yamaha 135LC 5-speed in the Auto section. It is confirmed that it is being launched on 18th March. It is also confirmed that we will get the 5-speed manual clutch with Mikuni BS25 carburetor (the same with 2011 Jupiter MX in Indonesia). The power figures that has been upped to 12.3hp and 12Nm of torque from the auto clutch version at only 11.97hp (12hp as stated in the paper) and 11.79Nm of torque (the auto clutch also gets the Mikuni BS25 carburetor). The 2010 Yamaha 135LC only comes with Mikuni VN22 carburetor that provides 11.32hp of power and 11.65Nm of torque.
The bike is also confirmed to features the wider wheels, two-piston caliper for the front brake and rear disc brake (single-piston caliper, I think). The tyre that is equipped for 2011 Jupiter MX in Indonesia is from IRC with the size of 70/90-17 x 2.15 38P for the front and 100/70-17 x 2.50 44P for the rear wheel. That is WIDE! In Malaysia, I think, the tyre might be supplied by Vee Rubber which is the OEM tyre manufacturer for HLYM bikes.

Another avid MotoMalaya reader, Muhd Hafiz, have sent an email to HLYM customer services to know the availability of the 2011 Yamaha 135LC with 5-speed and rear disc brake.
The reply is again is postive as they said that is being launched on the same date as the auto clutch version that is on 18th March 2011, but, the manual clutch will only be available to customers in some more time soon.
We are expecting the manual clutch version will comes late April or early in May.
Thanks Muhd Hafiz for the tips!

No doubt about it, 2011 Yamaha 135LC with 5-speed will definitely come to Malaysia soon. Very soon.
I have asked one of the management of Yamaha dealer in Malaysia about the 5-speed 135LC, and the reply is positive as he said that it is on test now. But, when I asked when it is going to be launched, he said that he don’t know about it yet.
One of my friend also have gone to HLYM in Sungai Buloh twice and asked about the availability of this bike, and again, the reply is positive as he said that this bike is on test.
Further last week, I have asked my friend at SCK Motor the same thing and he said that one of the SCK Motor rider in Malaysian Cub Prix has test this bike.
Today, I have found the pictures of the Yamaha 135LC 5-speed on test in PLUS highway at the best Yamaha 135LC forum page at yamahat135.com.
So, starts saving your money to get your hands on the first model of the 5-speed 135LC! I think at least RM2500 is needed for the down payment. Price is estimated(my estimation) at RM6900 for the auto-clutch. This bike is rumoured to be launched on Mac, April or May 2011.
My million thanks to whom who have taken this snapshot.
