2009 Yamaha VP125 X-City 125
It’s no exaggeration to say that the X-City
125 redefines old-fashioned ideas about personal transport.
Its uniquely fresh styling is a very pleasant surprise
on its own, with the bonus for 2009 of a new height-adjustable
windscreen, but it’s the precision and stability
of X-City 125’s high-wheeled ride (16 inch front/15
inch rear) that will have the biggest impact.
The high-wheel format is one of the most significant
advances in scootering’s long history. The feeling
of rider security it generates is remarkable. Enhanced
comfort is also immediately noticeable with high wheels,
especially on broken surfaces and there is no handling
price to pay, with no loss of the effortless manoeuvrability
rightly expected from any scooter.
Traffic gaps are easily pierced thanks to the slender
frontal aspect of the freshly-styled X-City bodywork.
Protection from the elements is a major X-City strong
point: now, with the new height-adjustable windscreen,
X-City riders can precisely tailor the ride to their
own requirements, achieving their own ideal balance
of protection, aerodynamics and style.
Comfortable handling is another key X-City feature.
The X-City 125’s weight is carried low in the
chassis for easy, light inputs at any speed, irrespective
of rider size or ability. Front and rear disc brakes
are confidence-inspiring, no matter how wet or dark
the streets are. High-visibility twin headlights and
twin taillights give you plenty of presence, while
a specially sculpted seat design provides back support
exactly where it’s needed.
X-City 125’s liquid-cooled fuel-injected four-stroke
engine is the practically foolproof result of Yamaha’s
relentless engineering development programme. Operation
is simplicity itself, maintenance infrequent and inexpensive.
It’s electric start, naturally, and it’s
clean running too, with full EU3-spec emissions compliance.
Comfort, performance and refinement: the X-City 125
has it all. Some have called the X-City a scooter
revolution. It’s difficult to argue otherwise.
