Yamaha Indonesia has launched the updated Yamaha Fino 125 with wide tubeless tyres, and new colours in the country.
The 14-inch alloy wheels are shod with tubeless tyres measuring 80/80-14M/C 43P at the front, and 100/70-14M/C 51P at the rear. In case of punctures, tubeless tyres lose air slower than tubed tyres and thus can handle punctures much better. Other than the tyres, the scooter is the same as its predecessor. The Yamaha Fino 125 Grande costs IDR 18,500,000, while the Fino Sporty and Fino Premium come with IDR 17,300,000 price tag, both OTR Jakarta. Fino Premium comes with three new colour options, "Choco Caramel" (brown), "Red Berry" (red) and "White Latte" (white).
Powering the new Yamaha Fino 125 is a 125cc single cylinder SOHC engine with Blue Core technology and fuel injection. Yamaha claims that the Blue Core makes the scooter 50 percent more efficient. The mill produces 9.52 PS of power at 8,000 rpm and 9.6 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. The engine pairs with a V-belt automatic transmission. The Grande variant comes with LED headlight (the other two variants get halogen headlamp); and SSS (Stop & Smart System), which switches off the engine after idling for five seconds. The engine comes back to life on turning the throttle.
The Fino 125 also features AKS (Advanced Key System). The key has a dual function of locating scooter at parking lots and opening the main locks as well. Another feature, "Smart Lock System" can help lock the brakes when parking on an incline. The scooter employs telescopic front fork and rear monoshock for suspension. Brakes include disc at the front and a drum at the rear. The scooter comes with 8.7 litres of underseat storage and a 4.2-litre fuel tank.
