The comparison for Malaysia version of 2011 Yamaha 135LC Auto Clutch and Manual Clutch version are highly requested by readers. Maybe they need to compare between these two before they can choose what to buy. In my humble opinion (pada pendapat saya dengan rasa rendah diri), both bike are great, but the ES version are absolutely desirable. Very desirable. I think it can be a great replacement for Y125Z that has been stopped production. Anyhow, Y125Z is completely different beast because it is two-stroke bike. I'm guessing this ES will be next popular bike from Yamaha with can be placed along the legends like the RX-Z and Y125Z.

It will be 'All Conquering'.

So, here it is:


1. The foot protector in 'P' shape for ES is projected forward while the SS version is projected backward that looks like inverted P.

2. The crankcase design is difference. Maybe this show new crankcase design for ES version. SS version crankcase is the same like the 2006-2010 135LC version.

3. Kick starter also designed differently.

More comparison of the specs below. Tell me if something is wrong somewhere!

Rotary type gear means that the gear will shift to N position after you hit the gear lever in stationary condition in top gear (4th gear). Return type gear means that it will only return to 1st gear after you hit down the gear lever repeatedly. Means that the gear only returns but not rotating continuously. The benefit of this kind of gear is that you can easily shift to 1st gear in traffic stop. More information about all the 135LC here:
