“It’s the lightest urban commuter scooter, making it more enjoyable to ride and easier to maneuver—and the compact dimensions mean that it’s ideal for getting through traffic jams,” the product description reads.
The model is equipped with a 125cc air-cooled engine capable of 8.4hp at 7,000rpm and 9.8Nm of torque at 5,000rpm. And just like in the NMax 125, both performance and economy are enhanced by Yamaha’s Blue Core and start-stop technologies. Suspension components include an 81mm telescopic fork and a 68mm unit swing, while a hydraulic single disc in front and a mechanical leading trailing drum in the rear provide stopping power.
The Japanese company claims that this is “the lightest scooter in its class” at just 101kg, despite the large under-seat storage that can fit a full-face helmet. The 12-inch front and 10-inch rear wheels, as well as the lightweight six-spoke alloys, contribute to the bike’s weight-saving measures.
Lastly, the scooter gets a complete makeover, featuring a redesigned front cowling and a headlight that is more rounded, not to mention a new LED position lamp and flashers. Its analog meter also features an LCD and warning lights.
The 2021 Yamaha D’elight 125 is available in Pearl White, Power Black, and Lava Red. Watch it in action below:
