KUALA LUMPUR: In a highly competitive underbone market in Malaysia, its difficult to get an upper hand against your rivals. In a quest to do so, SYM Malaysia has launched the VF3i 183 cc supercub at a starting price of RM8,467 for the base model. A special edition of the latest underbone is also available at RM8,785. Both prices are excluding road tax, registration and insurance, however, GST is included and we are waiting for the updated pricing.

2018 SYM VF3i

It is the first supercub in Malaysia to feature VF3i which provides an added 33cc displacement. Even the biggest supercubs in Malaysia typically comes fitted with a 150cc engine and thus the additional displacement gives an advantage to the SYM VF3i over its rivals.

The 183cc, liquid-cooled, SOHC, four-valve, single-cylinder engine generates a max power of 17.7 hp at 8,500rpm and peak torque of 15.3 Nm at 7,500 rpm, mated to a 6-speed gearbox and a wet disc clutch. Not to forget, the latest VF3i’s engine is Euro-3 compliant. SYM claims that the VF3i can clock a top speed of 155 kmph and has a fuel tank capacity of 7 litres which is decent enough, especially during a long run.
