Yamaha Y125 MOEGI Concept – 176 Pounds and 188 MPG
Yamaha has released new details for its Y125 MOEGI following the concept model’s debut at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show. (Updated with video and hi-res photography.)
We already knew Yamaha is equipping the MOEGI with a 125cc engine and the retro-styled concept looks to be exceptionally light. How light? How does 176 pounds sound?
Yamaha also claims fuel economy of 80 km/l (about 188 mpg), though with only a 0.8 gallon tank, range is limited to 150 miles or so.
Styling-wise, the MOEGI looks like a cross between a bicycle and the YA-1, Yamaha’s first motorcycle, introduced in 1955. Other features include fuel injection, a four-speed transmission, belt drive and low-maintenance LED lights.
