HAPPY NEW 2018! We gonna kick-start the 2018 with 8 things we like about the Yamaha NVX 155. The NVX 155 also known in some countries as Aerox 155. It’s a second time we took the NVX for review.
Never the less about its name, here a five things we like about NVX/Aerox.
For a scooter in this category, NVX is the most sporty looking scooter, large front panel design with dual sleek LED head lamp, gives the NVX a sporty maxi scooter feel couple with a sleek handle bar cover.
Seating position is comfortable but sporty, but we do prefer our foot on the rear passenger foot rest. The handling through fast corners, the NVX is really stable, no front wheel chattering nor rear tyre slide feel as in most of the scooter in the market.
No disc at the rear? No problem, Yamaha designed the rear drum brakes for NVX cant be locked or skidded, even how hard you press the rear brakes. Front disc with ABS make the NVX slow down instead of skidding, even in emergency situation when you press the front brakes too hard or long.
4. LCD Meter
This is one of the point that attracts is the front full Digital display. Makes the NVX a premium feel.
5. Keyless Start
First scooter with keyless start in this category
Engine is a smooth 155cc liquid-cooled VVA engine with 11hp
7. 14 inch tyre
Even with the standard tyre the NVX handle pretty well even on damp surface, the 14inch tyre give a more stable road holding compare to NMAX.
8. Lotsa of accessories to custom your NVX
What will we do without customising the NVX, ample accessories shop especially KL and northern area stock up tons of accessories for NVX, even can change the back suspension to Monoshock, there is a Ohlins kit for NVX
8 reasons to buy NVX, superb for all city commuting, ample storage space for raincoat, open face helmet or small bag in the 7 litre under seat compartment
Meanwhile it’s not the perfect scooter, there are also some things we don’t like about the NVX
Passenger foot peg & Stand
Passenger foot peg, retracts easily with the slightest touch, while the stand not convenient to put the side stand up when the passenger peg is out.
Standard top speed is 122km/h, earlier test recorded 128km/h,
Small capacity tank.
RM10 petrol will get to Gotong Jaya need to refuel for the journey back
The reminder beeper, will remind you that the NVX is not fully locked as you walk away.
If you’re looking to book your NVX be prepared to wait as there is a long waiting list, some said to be up to 2 months and also depends on the colours.
