Fuel Injection Bikes That Didn’t Make It to Malaysia

Honda Air Blade-i

Honda CBR-125i

Honda Click AT-i

Honda CZ-i 110

Yamaha Spark 135i

Suzuki Shogun 125 Fi

Honda Wave 125S PGM-Fi (the first cub to have Fi)

I hate to write about this post because it made me feel that we in Malaysia live in old time. People in Thailand got all the bike featured here, but none of them is available in Malaysia. Why? What is wrong with Fi bike in accordance with the rules and regulation here in Malaysia?
But, there is one thing that make me happy for using carburetor type cub bike, look at the Honda Wave specification below:

Specifications Honda Wave 125
* Engine type: SOHC 2-valve 4-stroke air-cooled 124cc engine
* Displacement: 124.9 cc
* Bore x Stroke: 52.4 x 57.9 mm
* Compression Ratio: 9,3:1
* Max Power: 9.3 PS @ 7,500 rpm (carburetor type),
9,18 PS @ 7.500 rpm(Fi)

* Max Torque: 1.03 kgf.m @ 4,000 rpm (carburetor type),
0,99 kgf.m /5.000 rpm(Fi)

* Max speed: 115 km/h
* Transmission: 4-speed
* Clutch: Wet multi-plate centrifugal
* Starter: Kick and electric starter
* Frame Type: Underbone steel tube
* Suspension (F): Telescopic
* Suspension (R): Swingarm
* Brake (F): Disc/Mechanically actuated drum
* Brake (R): Leading trailing drum/Disc
* Fuel tank capacity: 3.7 L

Read the one with bold font. As you can see the carburetor-type Honda Wave 125 is more powerful and torquey than Fi sibling. Also, the maintainance is low and easy to repair compared to Fi which used ECU. Still, we in Malaysia should have Fi bikes(we have one actually, that is Yamaha FZ-150i).
The special thing about Fi is about fuel efficiency. This is proven by the review of FZ-150i by Roda-Roda magazine in Malaysia September issue.
Self modification to fit your bike with Fi is actually possible but I think it is not worth the effort.
