Coming with a colour change for next year is the 2019 Yamaha NVX scooter, which retails at RM9,988. New colour options for the sporty NVX are Race Blu, Fiery Red and Active Yellow with availability at authorised Yamaha dealers beginning mid-December.

Based on the more conservative Yamaha NMax scooter, the NVX comes with a 155 cc, single-cylinder engine rated at 14.8 hp at 8,000 rpm and 14.4 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. The liquid-cooled mill with variable valve actuation (VVA) is fed by EFI and transmits power to the back wheel with a CVT gearbox.

Updated for 2019 on the NVX is the rear shock absorbers which now come with remote reservoirs to improve suspension performance at the back while the front uses conventional telescopic forks. ABS is standard on the front wheel with single disc brake and the rear wheel is stopped using a drum brake.

A large 25-litre storage compartment is located under the seat as well as a USB charging plug for keeping the rider’s electronics topped up. Inside the cockpit is a reverse backlight LCD instrument panel with remote opening seat and fuel door while keyless start is standard.

The Yamaha NVX was previously listed at a price of RM9,906, while the MotoGP Edition retails for RM10,606. The Yamaha NMax is currently priced at RM8,409.
