Naza Premira Sdn Bhd, in conjunction with the NAZA Merdeka Autofair 2017, has unveiled the new Piaggio Medley S 150 ABS, priced at RM18,996 OTR with insurance, inclusive of GST.
It is powered by an iGet derived 150cc engine which generates 15hp at 7,750rpm and 14.4Nm peak torque at 6,400rpm, and is equipped with a Start & Stop system, electronic fuel injection, four-valve timing and liquid cooling.
The metallic vertical element – or the the ‘tie’ – stands out in the centre of the front shield, and the surfaces are more extended, while the handlebar houses an instrument cluster with a chromium frame that features a digital display with all necessary information.
Its front shield has a spacious glove compartment that can be easily accessed from the rider’s seating position, with a USB socket inside, while the saddle has an electric opening latch controlled from a button on the handlebar as well as the traditional mechanical latch located in the leg shield back plate glove compartment, and the tail section has a 36.2-litre helmet compartment that has enough space to hold two flip up helmets.
Besides that, the Medley S is also fitted with LED daytime running lights (DRLs) and headlights.
The front end is characterised by a fork with 33mm stanchions in diameter, whereas a pair of double acting shock absorbers and coil springs with preload adjustable to five positions work at the rear axle.
It is also equipped with 16-inch front wheels and 14-inch rear wheels made of aluminium alloy with a six split spoke design.
The braking system is made up of a single 260 mm front disc, with double floating pistons, coupled to a 240 mm
disc at the back, with two-channel ABS as standard equipment.
In terms of service, fluids and filters are changed every 10,000km and valve clearance is adjusted every 20,000 km.
In conjunction with the NAZA Merdeka Autofair 2017, the first 33 units will receive a rear carrier, top box, back rest, floor mat and two years free service on top of the standard two-year manufacturer warranty.
