Yamaha BWS 125
Yamaha launch all new BWS 125 (BeeWee) at Melbourne Motorcycle Expo. Due out April 2011.
Yamaha's funky BeeWee scooter has received a radical makeover
turning from caterpillar to butterfly for 2011. The new model
benefits from Yamaha's experience with 4-stroke single cylinder
engines, combining performance and resilience in a stylish package.
Agile and responsive, this uniquely styled and attitude-filled
BeeWee runs a 125cc fuel injected air-cooled engine to offer the
power and punch necessary to negotiate the trickiest traffic. A
host of other features make longer rides more comfortable, too. The
large seat provides ample room for a pillion passenger, with a
sturdy grab rail offering added comfort. And underseat storage is
great for stowing essentials.
The agile BeeWee 125 tackles whatever the day throws at you: from
tight, twisting back roads to busy urban high streets. Big, wide,
all-terrain style 12inch tyres ensure you maintain a great
connection with the road, whether it's a potholed street or a wet
gravel path. Great levels of balance, grip and ride comfort mean
you can easily handle any weather and conditions. Off-road grade
dual rear shock absorbers take you smoothly over the urban
The heavy-duty frame is built to withstand the demands of a
daily commute in rush-hour traffic, and is matched with an
extra-wide handlebar for great control and flexibility, making it
easier to negotiate jams. A short wheelbase makes the BeeWee 125
exceptionally agile and simple to manoeuvre in tight city
The masculine, rugged, good looks of the new BeeWee 125 -
complete with heavy-duty exposed frame, dynamic dual headlights,
striking graphics and a specially-designed logo - are the ideal
complement to city living, whether commuting to work or enjoying a
weekend ride with friends.
Extra design touches include an artfully designed instrument
panel, which gives you vital machine information at a glance, and
ample underseat storage for a full-face helmet.
The BeeWee 125 has the power and performance to back up its
rugged, urban looks. The 125cc, 4-stroke, fuel injected, air-cooled
engine offers immediate acceleration whenever you turn the
throttle, ensuring you have the power to overtake safely and pull
away from the lights with confidence. Combined with the grippy
tyres and easy handling, it creates the kind of riding character
that was made for cities.
Electronic Fuel Injection reduces emissions and also makes the
engine incredibly efficient, so it's easier on your pocket,
Designed to be shared, the BeeWee 125 features a comfortable
pillion seat for two-up riding. The power of the 125cc engine -
plus the easy handling offered by the extra wide handlebars, short
wheelbase, grippy tyres and off-road grade dual rear shock
absorbers - mean that even with a passenger on the back, your
journey will be smooth and simple.
And on top of this, Yamaha's renowned engineering know-how keeps
maintenance down to a minimum. You can trust the BeeWee 125 to take
you anywhere you want to go - looking good, and on time.
The BeeWee 125 is available in Avalanche White and Midnight
Black. It will be on sale from April 2011.
