Hong Leong Yamaha yesterday issued a press release showing the facelifted 2016 135 LC. Listening to its customers, Yamaha has reworked the 2016 Yamaha 135LC with three new colour schemes – red, white and blue – with the white paint scheme coming with wheels in a contrasting shade of red.

Other changes to the 2016 135LC are LED pilot lights, a revised rear light design that incorporates a new high-mounted brake light and grab-rail, and a new chin visor. The engine of the 135LC stays the same for 2016, a 134 cc liquid-cooled single cylinder that puts out 12 hp at 8,500 rpm. Torque is 11.8 Nm at 5,500 rpm.

No word from Hong Leong Yamaha on pricing for the 2016 135LC, but it is confirmed the bike will be released in the Malaysian market at the end of February 2016. The 2015 price for the 135LC is RM6,318, and it is not expected the 2016 model will deviate much from that.
