The Yamaha Jupiter MX King 150 has officially landed to Indonesia. After seeing the first introduction in Vietnam with the name of Exciter 150 FI, this moped is making waves on other region in Asean. Yamaha Jupiter MX King is a very interesting bike for the market here in Asean as we are always in love with practical but powerful bikes. This MX King 150 could a bike that suits the statement of ‘one size fits all’. The seating ergonomics is not too high or too low. Almost everyone can ride this and be happy with it (but then, everyone have different tastes in bikes).
The Jupiter MX King 150 is the successor of the very popular Yamaha Jupiter MX 135 (Exciter in Vietnam, Spark 135 in Thailand, 135LC in Malaysia or T135 as the internal code name). Almost everything is being upgraded from the its predecessor. The Jupiter MX King 150 gets a new chassis, new engine with bigger capacity at 150cc and new wheels, and this is fitting to say that this is the ‘All New Bike’ from Yamaha stable. Even with a lot changes in and out of the Jupiter MX King 150, it is still recognisable as the high performance super sports moped just like the T135.
The icing on the cake is the Jupiter MX King 150 as it features a more premium accessories than the Jupiter MX 150. Both of the bike carries the same engine and all the important technical aspect like the brakes and engine where both is manual clutch equipped. The differences of the Jupiter MX King lies in the accesories only like the usage of halogen HS1 headlight, LED fairing light and gold colour caliper. You can check the table below:
The engine of the 2015 Yamaha Jupiter MX King 150 is liquid-cooled 4-stroke 4-valve SOHC engine which have used a lot of technology from the previous model. What is great about the engine from Yamaha is that it is easy to be tuned as there are a lot of aftermarket parts available for it. For now, there is still not much aftermarket parts for this model, but I’m thinking it will be available in just few months.
One feature of the Jupiter MX King 150 is the use of ‘Humanic Meter’ which can display ‘Hi buddy’ or any character no more than six letter which you can input it yourself. The 2014 Yamaha FZ150i already have this feature but it can only display ‘Hi bro’.
The rear tail light is nice with that LED and you should also notice the rear signal indicator shows that it is in sharp triangle shape. The one fitted to the Jupiter MX 150 is in the oval shape.
After reading this, you might be asking whether this will make it to Malaysia or not. For now, I’m not sure but there is hope.
