Aveta Malaysia has officially launched the new SVR180, dubbed “the ultimate supermoped”, the new motorcycle is available for a recommended selling price of RM9,998.
- The SVR180 is Aveta’s first “supermoped” in Malaysia.
- Features a 175cc single cylinder engine that makes 16.8hp and 15.5Nm.
Features a front fascia that looks like it took inspiration from Kawasaki’s Z1000; the SVR180 features a 175cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled DOHC engine capable of producing 16.8hp at 8,500rpm and 15.5Nm also at 8,500rpm.
Power is delivered to the rear wheel via a six-speed transmission with a final chain drive.
On paper, the SVR180 makes less power than the SYM VF3i, although the latter has a slightly bigger displacement with 183cc compared to Aveta’s 175cc.
Nonetheless, the SVR180 pumps out 1.4hp and 1.7Nm more than the Yamaha Y15ZR.
Other notable features on the Aveta SVR189 include a fully digital instrument cluster, LED headlamp with daytime running light (DRL) function, front and rear disc brakes, USB charging port and radiator guard.
Despite pushing to make ABS compulsory among kapcai’s in Malaysia, the Aveta SVR180 misses out on this feature.
Also, the Aveta SVR180 runs on 17-inch wheels with 90/80 at the front and 120/70 at the rear. The frame is suspended by a telescopic fork and a monoshock at the back.
While the brochure might tell you that the new moped is equipped with a small 3.8L tank, we can assure you it’s not, as the company informed us that the SVR180 features a 6.6L tank instead.
The Aveta SVR180 comes in four exciting colours; red, blue, cyan and black.
