Yamaha launches the new Xenter

The new Yamaha Xenter 125

The key feature of the Xenter is a set of large front and rear 16-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels fitted with new, custom-designed tyres which Yamaha say gives outstanding grip and abrasion resistance. The engine is a totally new liquid-cooled, Single Overhead Camshaft (SOHC), single-cylinder 4-valve engine with continuously variable transmission (CVT). Several advanced vibration-reduction technologies and techniques have been incorporated in the engine, including the use of lightweight forged aluminium piston, ceramic-coated cylinders and a single-shift balancer. Cumulatively, these help to dramatically reduce engine vibration – which in turn means that the engine could be mounted onto the chassis using a motorcycle-style progressive pivot mount. This mount offers the exceptional level of unity between engine and chassis that forms the basis for the smoothness and handling stability.
