2015 Yamaha Exciter RC 150 Officially Unveiled in Vietnam - 15.4PS 150cc FI King of Street - VND45,450,00 (about RM7,354.90)

2015-Yamaha-Exciter-GP-150-RC-005 Yamaha Vietnam has unwraps the cover of the Exciter RC that comes with 150cc fuel-injection SOHC liquid-cooled engine that is the successor of the Yamaha Exciter 135 (135LC in Malaysia, Jupiter MX in Indonesia or T135 everywhere else). There is also a rumor that Indonesia will get this bike with the name Jupiter MX King. There are a lot of improvement of this Exciter RC 150 compared to the Exciter 135. 2015-Yamaha-Exciter-RC150-Vietnam-002 The first objective of this machine is to 'boost the feeling of power' and with that in mind the 135cc engine has been increased to 150cc in capacity to enables it to harness more power. It is also said that the project leader for this Exciter RC 150 is the same project leader who handles the Vixion (FZ150i) development project. Reducing power loss also taken into consideration here with the proven technology that is the DiASil cylinder use to minimise the friction. Also here to minimise the friction is the use of the roller rocker arm that are now being extensively in many small bikes. Not suprising to us, is the use of FI system to make sure fuel-efficiency and accurate fuel delivery in high speed for more mileage and more power when in need.

Rather than using shiny new metal sheet, Vibrazioni (Vibrations) Art Design chooses recycled material and painstakingly moulded it by hand to the shape and contours they need. The colour of the Pennzoil are actually the actual logo on the recycle oil barrel that they use to make the tank, front fairing and rear cowling.

VIDEO: Official 2015 Kawasaki Vulcan S 650 Introduction - below RM30k

ScreenShotSSD007 A great introduction video to showcase the features and the highlight of the 2015 Kawasaki Vulcan S 650. Coming soon to Malaysia sometime next year with the price said to be lower than RM30,000.One thing that is interesting is that you can adjust the footrest in three step to suit your height. Not just that, you can also adjust the handlebar to make it fit to your reach. Previously we have seen the Vulcan VN500 which has become a popular long time ago as a cruiser of choice. There is also Yamaha Virago XV535 at that time that rides along the road in Malaysia. I remember that it shows someone who rides a cruiser like this is a rich man since only rich man can buy big bikes. Now, at only RM30,000, almost everyone can enjoy what the rich man have too. Check out the video embed after the jump:
