MForce Bike Holdings Sdn Bhd recently dropped a new teaser showing what could be an all-new maxi-scooter from WMoto making its way to Malaysia soon.
Despite no further details shared, it is now confirmed that the upcoming scooter will go by WMoto ES250i, as shown in a trademark documents leak online this week via Facebook user, Vanhoe Rage.
The trademark application was submitted to Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO) on February 10, 2022.
Based on the name, it is safe to assume that the maxi-scooter will carry a 250cc engine and will go head-to-head with Yamaha XMax 250, Honda Forza 250 and Modenas Elegan 250.
Nonetheless, MForce is yet to announce the official release date for the new motorcycle.
According to reports, the WMoto ES250i will be based on the Keeway GT270 maxi-scooter launched in Thailand last year. However, the GT270 runs on a 278.2cc engine instead of 250cc.
