The Yamaha Mio 125, power and scooter are two words that don't often go hand in hand, except when you're talking about the new 125cc Yamaha Mio engine. Since the new 125cc Yamaha Mio was unveiled there has been nothing but praise for it. The concept of a machine with the practicality of a scooter, a more powerful engine, and excellent for tight city traffic.
The new 125cc Yamaha Mio is powered by a 124cc, liquid-cooled, SOHC 2-valve, 4-stroke engine. While the engine is surely an upgrade in technology, Yamaha didn't use fuel-injection for there latest scooter, the Yamaha Mio 125 is equipped with a Mikuni BS26 carburetor. With the use of specialized air-filters, high-compression ratio, and shaped combustion chamber Yamaha is able to meet the latest Thai emission standards. The Thai emission standards are actually higher then we find in most countries around the world.
The newest Yamaha Mio 125 did get some 'useful' gadgets, which include a remote starter, which works from about 6 to 7 meters (we normally not care about gadgets like this). Lucky none of the creature comforts of a scooter have been sacrificed, either, with the Yamaha Mio 125.
The under seat area has the usual interior storage space big enough for a open face helmet or some other useful stuff you want to have near when you ride around town.
If you are after something more practical than the average scooter, with the benefits of a bit stronger engine, and you love riding a Yamaha two-wheeler, have a run on a Yamaha Mio 125. As the Yamaha Mio is almost identical to the Yamaha Fino, only big difference is the plastic body work, we expect a 125cc Yamaha Fino to be introduced soon.
