2024 Yamaha NVX Launched with Four New Colours

Hong Leong Yamaha Motor has launched the 2024 Yamaha NVX, with four new colours.

The perky performance scooter is still a favourite among many Malaysian riders, despite being launched way back in 2017. Seven years is a long production run, and the bike has seen some revisions cosmetics and design wise during that time. That popularity has to do with its sporty demeanour and handling.

Standard version in BLUE

The 2024 version features four stylish colours, separated into two respectively for each of the two versions of the Yamaha NVX. Meaning, the standard, non-ABS version gets the Blue, or Bronze colours, while the ABS version gets the Cyan Sky, and Premium Navy colours.

Its ABS system made its debut in the 2023 edition and is single-channel which serves only the front wheel, while the rear wheel is (still) served by a drum brake. But to us, having an ABS at the front is much more useful because it is not easy to control a skidding front tyre!

ABS version in CYAN SKY

The engine remains unchanged, featuring the single-cylinder, 155cc, liquid-cooled, SOHC with VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) powerplant which also powers the Yamaha Y16ZR and Yamaha YZF-R15. It produces 15 hp (11.3 kW) at 8,000 RPM, and 13.9 Nm of torque at 6,500 RPM.

ABS version in PREMIUM NAVY

The ABS version features higher-spec rear shock absorbers with sub-tank, smart key, and stop-start idling system to enhance fuel efficiency.

Hong Leong Yamaha says the new colours will be available at all authorised Yamaha dealers nationwide from 24 April 2024. The recommended retail price for the standard version is RM 9,998.00, while the ABS version is priced at RM 11,698. These prices are not on-the-road. Every buyer comes with a Yamaha disc lock worth RM 100.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
