Yamaha Cygnus scooter updated
Yamaha Australia have released a cleverly updated version of the city slicker 125cc four stroke Cygnus scooter.
YMA has released a cleverly updated version of the city slicker Cygnus scooter. The frugal four-stroke 125cc commuter scores fuel injection to eke out the fuel for longer, a larger front brake for more effective slowing and a host of styling updates. All this on the swan-like Cygnus that is not your traditional scooter. Sophisticated, with clean, compact lines, Cygnus exudes a stylish self confidence that you might only expect to find in a more expensive, large capacity scooter.
Cygnus’ clean running 125cc fourstroke engine is stone reliable and punchy to boot, comfortably motivating a rider and passenger from place to place… cheaply too. Yamaha’s reliable V-belt transmission design offers complete, shiftless convenience of operation that is complemented by electric starting. Cygnus looks like it means business, and looks aren’t deceiving, with a simple, yet cleverly-designed chassis geometry and handling package to give you sweet low speed steering response, as well as confidence-inspiring stability as speeds increase.
Large-diameter five-spoke front wheel and a powerful 245mm disc front brake provide a sure-footed interface with the road. The suave, modern exterior is finished with a comfortable rider and passenger seat, complete with an aero-style rear end spoiler/grabrail. Being a Yamaha means that each Cygnus is fitted with DataDotDNA security. And in the unlikely event you encounter a problem, Yamaha’s extensive dealer network can service and repair the unit using readily available parts. Not all scooter suppliers can boast a customer support system that runs all the way from finance (YMF) to warranty and aftersales service.
For 2008, Cygnus comes in two smart colour schemes of Gun Metallic and Silver Ice while RRP (inc GST) is just $4199. Dress with the dignified elegance of a suit, or the laid-back cool of a jeans and joggers… either way, the Cygnus way of scooting might just be the start of a whole new way of life.
