Naza Premira Sdn Bhd, the official distributor of Piaggio vehicles in Malaysia, is pleased to introduce the new Piaggio Medley S 150 ABS.
Naza Premira is indeed very proud to launch the stylish Medley S to the local market. The new Medley is designed for those who need a modern looking scooter for commuting and also include high safety equipment such as dual disc brakes with ABS and large diameter wheels. Piaggio Medley S 150 ABS takes on metropolitan areas with grit and personality. The front view stands out from the classic high wheel scooter look. The metallic vertical element (the ‘tie’) stands out in the centre of the front shield, thereby accentuating a certain family feeling with recent Piaggio production.
The surfaces are more extended, all to the advantage of aerodynamic protection and therefore riding comfort. The
handlebar, shaped to guarantee protection of the rider, houses a refined instrument cluster with a chromium frame.
The digital display makes all the necessary information available, while the complete arrangement of warning lights keeps tabs on all the functions, starting with the “Start & Stop” feature and then moving along with the classic “injection check”, oil pressure, ABS and Immobilizer activation indicators.
The front shield has a spacious glove compartment that can be easily accessed from the rider’s seating position.
There is also a USB socket inside the glove compartment, practical for you to charge your smart phone.
The saddle, large and comfortable even on the passenger section, has an electric opening latch controlled from a button on the handlebar as well as the traditional mechanical latch located in the leg shield back plate glove compartment.
There is also the innovative LED daylight running lights and headlight become true somatic distinctive traits.
The front end is characterised by a fork with 33 mm stanchions in diameter, whereas a pair of double acting shock absorbers and coil springs with preload adjustable to 5 positions work at the rear axle.
The 16” front wheel, in addition to providing stability, safety and comfort, vertically streamlines the entire front end.
The wheel rims are aluminium and boast an elegant six split spoke design.
Thanks to this configuration, the large wheel rims (16” front and 14” rear) made of aluminium alloy with an elegant six split spoke design and the tyres (100/80 front and 110/80 rear) promises good stability and nimbleness as the weight is contained at a light 132 kg (kerb).
Keeping close to its practical lines, the tail section has 36.2 -litre helmet compartment that has enough space to hold two flip up helmets.
This result is obtained thanks to the well-designed shape of the tail and the repositioning of the fuel tank at the centre of the footboard. The centrally located fuel tank also helps the Medley in its handling department as the weight is now focussed to the middle part of the scooter.
The braking system is made up of a single 260 mm front disc, with double floating pistons, coupled to a 240 mm disc at the back. The two- channel ABS is a standard equipment and it ensures the wheels do not lock on slippery surface, a problem known among scooterista around the world.
Medley S150 ABS is price at RM18,327.40 include GST without insurance and roadtax.
Vespa S125 I-GET
Vespa S125 I-GET was another model launched at the NAZA Merdeka Autofair 2017. The I-GET engine, which stands for Italian Green Experience Technology, is said to be a new approach to the powertrain design and development, with aims to increase the efficiency of each element and improving overall performance. The new powerplant is the result of a design philosophy that sets new and more advanced quality and reliability levels as its primary objectives. Every aspect of the design process was aimed at increasing the efficiency of each individual component, thereby working together to maximise performance and, at the same time, minimise consumption and emissions.
The new I-GET powerplant that is equipped on the Vespa S125 are ultra-modern single cylinder 4-stroke 125 cc air cooled engines with electronic injection and 3-valve timing. Each and every detail, from the exhaust to the internal design of the gearbox cover, has been designed to make the ride smoother, quieter and more comfortable.
The injection system has been optimised and improved in terms of efficiency; the ECU now has a barometric sensor that guarantees optimum combustion every time in any condition of use and at any altitude. This means that the power and torque output reach new
and high levels of regularity and reliability, even in the city with constant “stop and go” riding.
These engines are extremely environmentally friendly since they are approved in compliance with the Euro 3 Multi-Directive, and they are capable of performance which is at the top of the category: the I-GET 125 cc has maximum power and torque that measure in respectively at 10.2 hp at 7,600 rpm and 10.2 Nm at 6,000 rpm. These are values that, along with the proverbial light weight typical of all Vespas, make this Vespa “small body” particularly quick both in city traffic and on stretches of open road.
A perfectly calibrated gearbox with new and more resistant friction materials for the dry centrifugal automatic clutch contributes to this result. This brilliant performance is combined with fuel consumption values that are reduced to a minimum: the particular architecture of the engine and the solutions adopted for the various components makes 60km/litre at 50km/h. Thanks to a spacious, 7 litre fuel tank, Vespa S125 now boast a highly respectable travel range: 420 km can be covered with a full tank.
The Vespa S125 I-GET powerplants are single cylinder engines, completely new both in terms of mechanical components and electronic parts. Worth a mention in more detail are:
The crankshaft, with 24% increased inertia compared with the previous engine for a decisive reduction in vibrations and a smoother ride.
• The new starter motor, decidedly quieter.
• The new gearbox cover, to reduce the noise even more and increase stiffness.
• The barometric sensor, so that combustion is always optimised. The exhaust system is also entirely new. The new unit makes the engine quieter and at the same time ensures a more full and pleasant timbre.
Apart from the I-GET engine, the Vespa S125 has always embodied the heritage of legendary models from the 70’s, such as the Vespa 50 Special and the 1967 Vespa Primavera, offering a trip down a charming memory lane.
It is the most sporty and youthful Vespa ‘small body’ available. The lines express dynamic character and youth, with their clean and essential, but definitely spirited, sections. It is a Vespa that makes minimalist design its distinguishing feature in order to definitively win the approval of the youngest enthusiasts.
The square headlight, the more decisive design of the mudguards and the profile of the saddle are the unmistakeable key features of the Vespa S125, which go extremely well with the red colour of the shock absorbers and the brand new instrument panel graphics.
The Vespa S125 has new aesthetic details which make it even more effervescent and sporty. At the same level as the Vespa LX, on the S125 version the mask located on the front shield is new as well as the ‘tie’, which by now distinguishes all new generation Vespa vehicles. For the occasion, the instrument panel graphics
have been revamped, while the horn guard on the shield and the crest on the front mudguard forgive the elegant chromium finish, taking on a much more aggressive black colour. The five-spoke wheel rims are the same colour. On the Vespa S125, as with the LX, the new plastic guard located on the footboard comes standard, embellished with the Vespa logo.
There are four colour schemes available: Grigio Titanio (Grey), Green Matt, Taormina and Red Matt.
The new Vespa S125 I-GET is tagged with a basic selling price of RM11,600.00 without GST.
