HLYM introduces new Yamaha Ego Avantiz scooter with a tentative price tag of RM5,700.
Malaysian Yamaha motorcycles assembler and distributors Hong Leong Yamaha Motor Sdn Bhd (HLYM) updated its model line up after introducing the new Yamaha Ego Avantiz scooter model earlier today in Kuala Lumpur.
The new entry-level scooter was launched in conjunction with this weekend’s Yamaha Automatic World Motorshow that’s taking place in the popular city centre shopping haven of Berjaya Times Square.
The Yamaha Ego Avantiz boasts a stylish modern new design that’s complemented by an LED headlamp unit – one of the first in its segment to offer said feature.
Designed as a scooter for all kinds of users, the Ego Avantiz underpins a lightweight underbone chassis with a rear swingarm construction and boasts a light claimed weight of 97kg. Like most other underbone scooters in its segment, it features the typical telescopic front forks and rear monoshock suspension setup as well.
Underneath its pretty new skin, the new Yamaha Ego Avantiz is powered by an air-cooled, four-stroke 125cc single-cylinder SOHC engine that’s primed with fuel injection and an electric starter. Paired with the mill is a V-belt automatic transmission that features a wet multi-plate clutch assembly as well – a rather typical transmission setup in this segment as well.
More importantly, the mill adopts the Japanese powerhouse’s BLUECORE tehcnology’s fuel efficiency doctrine and features an Eco lamp that will allow riders to fully maximise every drop of fuel from the 4.2-litre fuel tank. On top of that, the mill healthily outputs 9.4hp @ 8,000rpm and peak torque of 9.6Nm @ 5,500rpm.
Other notable features include a large 14-litre ‘jet’ design underseat storage bin, a hydraulic single front disc brake unit paired with a drum-type unit at the rear, not forgetting the wheels and tyre size combination of 70/90-14M/C 34P at the front and 90/80-14M/C 49P at the rear.
HLYM will offer the new Yamaha Ego Avantiz with three colour scheme options. The scooter will go on display during the Yamaha Automatic World Motorshow throughout this weekend before it hits showroom sometime in August.
As for the price, HLYM has indicated a tentative basic sales price of RM5,700 (including GST) for now pending approval from the government. The final price will include HLYM’s standard offer of a one-year or 10,000km warranty plan.
