Yamaha shows retro 125cc motorcycle that 220 mpg

The Yamaha Y125 concept

press conference at the Tokyo Show today was a genuine of the times. Four brand new premiers were shown. The internal combustion engine them was a 250cc model fat tires designed to go anywhere the SUV of motorcycles was the claim.

There was a three-wheeled electric commuter, a electric pedal-assist bicycle wait for it, an 80 km/l (226 mpg or 188 U.S. miles/gallon) retro commuter that’s somewhere a bicycle and motorcycle — it just 80 kg and it is beautiful.

Firstly, the I’ve always a big fan of 125cc four-strokes — it about 30 plus years ago I was testing a 125cc Kawasaki for a magazine and at the end of a week of valve-bouncing and found I’d managed to 100mpg for the daily commute. It was the time of the first energy and I figured that I’d the answer.

If a high-revving, OHC four-… could close to a 100 mpg when being mistreated, what sort of could it deliver if it were for economy, ridden gently and in a suitably lightweight frame?

Y125 appears to answer question. Modeled on Yamaha’s motorcycle, the YA-1, the Yamaha is a modern interpretation of that Though the YA-1 was itself a of the German DKW RT125 and was powered by a engine, I am certain readers agree the Yamaha concept has updated the YA-1.

The YA-1 weighed around 140 and produced 5.6 bhp @ 5000 rpm for what was at the a highly competitive motorcycle not on the road, but on the racetrack.

The big difference the Y125 is in the fuel consumption. claims the bike uses its 125cc four-… motor. the engine certainly seems to been lightened and polished and and heaven knows what done with the internals.

The Y125 uses what is by standards, close to a bicycle with sophisticated lightweight and similarly, the brakes are also The end result is a bike that the scales at 80 kg — just a tad than half the original total.

At this stage, a concept but who knows what happen simply because such an enticing bike takes everything back to Sure, the lights are LED and the rear is driven by a belt rather a chain, but nothing seems rocket science — just a very traditional design updated with day computer design and material and it is an absolute celebration of the form of the Yamaha.

The world motor Yamaha is used in the bike produces the horsepower of the original YA-1, so the will never be embarrassed for or top speed on urban roads. The weight will ensure it is far than your average to ride, and the fuel consumption of 80 (226 mpg Imperial or 188 U.S. is testimony to what can be done you really want to achieve in a two-wheeler.
