To launch in Indonesia by the end of this year.
Iwanbanaran has posted revealing spyshots of the upcoming Yamaha NVX 150 scooter which is expected to launch in Indonesia by the end of this year. The NVX 150 will reportedly slot below the Yamaha NMax in the Japanese manufacturer’s lineup.
The Yamaha NVX 150 sports a design inspired by Yamaha’s motorcycle lineup with dual headlight clusters, a motorcycle-inspired exhaust canister and a taillight cluster with LED brakelights.
Power for the Yamaha NVX 150 is expected to come from the same engine powering the Yamaha NMax. This is a 155 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled unit capable of 14.88 hp at 8,000 rpm and 14.4 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm, and is paired to a V-Belt CVT unit.
Similar to the NMax, the Yamaha NVX 150 gets a petal-shaped disc brake at the front though the rear does with a drum brake. However, ABS and alloy wheels are expected to remain standard on the scooter. The Yamaha NVX 150 is expected to measure in the whereabouts of the NMax, at 1,955 mm in length, 745 mm in width, 1,115 mm in height and 1,350 mm in wheelbase. For reference, the NMax weighs 127 kg.
Some of the features confirmed on the Yamaha NVX 150 include a smart-entry system with a button-type unlock for the fuel lid and under-seat storage, a 5.8-inch all-LCD instrument cluster, 25-liters of storage space under the seat and 140 mm 14-inch tyres.
An all LCD instrument cluster is part of the feature list, as is a keyless start system.
Yamaha showcased the NMax at the Auto Expo 2016 in India this year, and stated that it was gauging public response towards the premium scooter.
