Yamaha 135LC Pros & Cons

By Abhishek Katariya on Aug 14, 2020
Things We Like in 135LC

The lean profile of the Yamaha 135LC Super Sport is something which comes handy while tackling the worst of the urban traffic with ease and comfort. The slim tyres, as well as thin body profile of the 135LC Super Sport, makes it feel nimble and agile to ride.

For an entry-level moped, the Yamaha 135LC Super Sport’s 135cc single-cylinder engine is quite powerful and refined. The power and torque figures are in the league of a 150cc scooter, which gives it an impressive power to weight ratio.

Things We Dont Like in 135LC

The cost consciousness of the Yamaha 135LC Super Sport is evident with the absence of many modern features in the moped. The 135LC Super Sport lacks any of the trendy features like LED lights, digital meters, which makes it feel a bit old fashioned and built to cost.

While the single piece seat of the Yamaha 135LC Super Sport is long enough to seat two adults, the limited width and lack of cushioning makes it feel uncomfortable for longer commutes.

135LC Overview

As one of the most liked cubs in the country, the Yamaha 135LC has never seen a drop in its fame since its launch in 2006. And why would it when it offers style, reliability, and performance in a single package that costs RM 6,868 only. Yamaha 135LC fits in high demand slot just above the 100-cc commuters and below the more performance-oriented 150-cc sports kapchais. This slot also makes it affordable. Hong Leong Yamaha Motors freshen up the look of the underbone last year; the significant changes include a revised instrument panel, an engine cowl, some air scoops, a stylish horn cover, new engine protection cover, and new colour schemes. 


Yamaha 135LC Design

The recent facelift has enhanced the elegant look of the bike. Its flashy-looks with bright graphics and loud colour shades clearly aimed at youth with energetic appeal and trendy character. Upfront, the underbone poses an angular appearance with LED pilot lights and chin spoiler. The taillight also gets a redo with a secondary high mounted brake light. This goes flush with the new grab handle while also increasing visibility for extra safety. 

Placed on either side, the new air scoops not only enhance the aesthetic appeal but also improve its aerodynamic efficiency. The new horn cover hides the horn entirely and, surprisingly, makes the 135LC look sportier. The four available color options are Blue, Red, Black, and Silver.

Coming to the dimensions, the bike is 1950 mm long, 695 mm wide, and 1040 mm tall. It has a short wheelbase of 1250 mm and a minimum ground clearance of 130 mm. There are 17-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels wrapped in 70/90 tires at the front and 80/90 tires at the rear. 

The seat is a comfortable single piece with a spacious utility box underneath. The console on the Yamaha 135LC Super Sport is analogue.

135LC Ride & Handling

The bike is lightweight at 105 kg. And it is not only the acceleration where the lightweight works in its favour, but it is also the handling. Riding the Yamaha 135LC is a breeze. Most of the riders would find it very friendly and approachable. Besides the weight, the compact dimensions also allow it to be ridden with ease.

Yamaha 135LC suspension setup incorporates a monocross suspension in the rear and a conventional telescopic in the front. This gives the bike confident handling to carve through city traffic and also the stability for high speeds on highways. 


Yamaha 135LC Engine & Fuel Consumption

The aggressiveness is not just in looks as this underbone carries enough grunt in the 134-cc 4-valve single-cylinder engine to justify its looks. The engine is carbureted but does use liquid cooling while also using a DiASiL cylinder for better cooling and fuel efficiency. 

The engine churns out 11.97 hp of power at 8,500 rpm and 11.79 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm. Power is delivered to the rear wheel through a four-speed rotary gearbox with an automatic clutch. Yamaha does not offer the choice of manual clutch anymore, but this does not impact the bike's performance. 

The bike is truly meant for sporty performance and has a linked type shift pedal for quick gear changes. Power delivery is swift, as can be seen through the antics of the hooligans on these bikes. It can return a fuel economy of 45 kmpl, which signifies the fact that it can run 180 km with the 4-litre fuel tank.

135LC Braking & Safety

Yamaha has equipped the 135LC with a front disc brake so riders can have enough stopping power whenever they need it. The large 267 mm diameter disc brake comes with a single-piston setup. Although the rear wheel has a drum brake, braking is sufficient for most purposes. The tyres measure 70/90-17 and 80/90-17 for the front and rear, respectively.

Yamaha 135LC Verdict

Yamaha 135LC efficiently bridges the gap between a fuel-efficient commuter and a fun, high-performance bike. It is really the best of both worlds, which gives a fierce competition to Sym Sport Rider 125i, Honda EX5, and Benelli TNT 135.
