Yamaha released an all-new scooter specific to the Taiwanese market called the Augur.
- Yamaha Augur is the latest compact scooter to be made available in Taiwan.
- Features the tried-and-test Yamaha’s 155cc single-cylinder engine with VVA.
At a glance, the 155cc scooter is the most futuristic-looking model manufactured by the Japanese manufacturer in recent years.
Interestingly, the Augur 155 also packs some tasty features, including a 4.3-inch TFT instrument display with smartphone connectivity, traction control and ABS.
However, the centrepiece has to be its radical design, highlighted by its angular section, creating a never-before-seen aesthetic.
At the front, the Augur gets an arrow shape headlamp that also features the nifty Y-LLA (Yamaha Lean Light Assist) or cornering lights.
What’s more extraordinary is that the user can change the LED headlight colour from bright white to warm white depending on weather conditions.
Despite the modern touch, Yamaha still retains the typical scooter functionality, including a wide saddle for comfortable riding, a flat floorboard and ample under-seat storage.
Powering the Augur is the same 155cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, and fuel-injected engine found in the NMax 155 and NVX 155.
