Yamaha XC155 (SMax) to the US. Watch out PCX!

http://blog.motorcycle.com/2014/08/2...certification/



I like this better than the PCX.

Looks like a nice sized package , and the flat floorboard is a big plus IMO.

Can't wait to hear how it performs.

Cool! I wonder if they'll keep the integrated turn signals...


Also, WTF is on the left side of the handlebars?








Hopefully they learn from Honda's mistake and get rid of the seat hump. Unless they're planning to offer a "humpless" seat as an add-on...

Yamaha Majesty 125 Review & Testride: http://youtu.be/mbubTX91E0s

This is the 125 test.

Left side round deal is the gas cap. Very convenient placement.

The disc rear brake is a plus as well.

Doesn't the PCX still have a drum?

That looks nice. 14.8 HP, 2 gal tank and disc/disc brakes. This could be my next scooter as long as they didn't screw it up by linking the brakes.

Looks like it has good cornering clearance too.

Flat floor is a huge plus.

Looks like a nice package.

Liking the flat floorboards too.

Lots of smaller scoots coming out but no replacement for the Silverwing. Wonder if the market demand has shifted over the last few years?

I would likely say "Fuel Door" Maybe? Similar to Kymco People 250. I am glad to see a change in the market with more small/midsize scoots and bikes on the comeback.

Another thumb up for flat floorboards. My Daelim has a similarly placed gas cap which I find very handy. Wishing for more choices in the 250cc market though.

The SH150 still trumps both....I do like the fuel placement, easier to fill but also weight up front. Don't like the 13" size wheels/tires

Overall, I like the Yamaha design better than the SH. The windshield option for the Yamaha has nice integration.

The wheels, my SR50 had 13" as well as my RV250. Both were enjoyable to ride and the Aprilia especially handled much better than a little scooter should.

When this bike hits it will be tough to say no.
