Hong Leong Yamaha Motor (HLYM) unveiled the much-anticipated Yamaha Y16ZR VVA (that’s what they call it) for local markets.
The all-new motorcycle features a variety of modern technology and safety aspects, making it one of the most advanced 155cc moped available in the country.
The motorcycle is packed with the same liquid-cooled 4-stroke, 4-valve, SOHC 155cc engine with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) found on the MT-15 and YZF-R15 capable of producing 17.7 hp@9,500 rpm and 14.4 Nm @ 8,000 rpm.
Not to mention, the Y16ZR is 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.

- full LED lighting
- negative-faced LCD digital panel
- smart key function
- 12V DC socket
The all-new Yamaha Y16ZR comes in three exciting colours, Phantom Grey, Arrow Blue and Raging Yellow and available at a price of RM10,888.
