The 2021 Yamaha NVX has been launched in the Malaysian market. Although it won’t be launched in India anytime soon, there are a few aspects about it that are worth knowing about. How does a scooter with a VVA-equipped 155cc engine sound? There are more interesting facts about the 2021 Yamaha NVX and we tell you what they are.
Yamaha sells the NVX scooter in two variants including standard and ABS that are differentiated only by the colour of wheels. Unlike the standard’s black wheels, the ABS trim gets swankier-looking blue and golden coloured rims. Regardless of the chosen variant, the NVX looks stunning with a hunched forward and muscular front apron and a long, sleek and sharp tail section.
Smartphone compatible display
It comes equipped with a large blue backlit LCD panel that is compatible with Yamaha’s Y-Connect smartphone application and gives access to data like maintenance schedules, malfunction notification, fuel consumption, battery levels, last park location along with notification for calls and messages. And besides the basic info, it also comprises a tachometer that is rare in scooters.
Apart from the advanced instrument cluster, the 2021 NVX also comes equipped with other practical features like a 5.5-litre fuel tank with its lid residing between the front apron and seat. It also gets a 12V DC power outlet for charging electronic devices. Moreover, the headlamp and tail lamp of the NVX house LEDs.
YZF R15-derived engine
Powering the 2021 NVX is the same VVA (variable valve actuation)-equipped 155cc engine that does duty on the YZF R15 V3. However, the former’s liquid-cooled, SOHC motor is tuned to make lesser performance than the latter at 15.2bhp of power and 13.9Nm of peak torque. Whereas, the R15 churns out 18.37bhp and 14.1Nm.
