Yamaha Y16ZR Gets Updated Visuals For 2022 – RM11,118

Hong Leong Yamaha Motor (HLYM) introduced three new colours for the 2022 Yamaha Y16ZR. 

  • The Yamaha Y16ZR remains as the only moped in its class to feature assist/slipper clutch.
  • Due to current economic situation, the 2022 Y16ZR is priced slightly higher than the previous model. 

The Y16ZR now features in Glacier White, Phantom Neon & Flaming Silver and is already available at Yamaha’s authorized dealership across the nation with a new recommended price of RM11,118 a slight increased from the previous RM10,888.

Aside from the new visuals, the Yamaha Y16ZR continue to offer the same specifications including the same liquid-cooled 4-stroke, 4-valve, SOHC 155cc engine with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) capable of producing 17.7 hp@9,500 rpm and 14.4 Nm @ 8,000 rpm.

The Y16ZR is also the only motorcycle in its class that comes with an assist/slipper clutch which improves gear changing while reducing the probability of a clutch slip.

Although without Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), the Y16ZR packed with a 2-pot calliper at the front paired to a 245mm front disc.

HLYM also claimed the motorcycle can now achieve a range of 256km with a 5.4L fuel tank.

Other exciting features:

  • full LED lighting
  • negative-faced LCD digital panel
  • smart key function
  • 12V DC socket
