Yamaha Fazzio vs Honda Genio, Who is the Best?

 PT Astra Honda Motor (AHM) has just released the new Honda Genio with a different approach. Now the entry-level scooter has been transformed to look like its older brother, the Honda Scoopy. Similar changes are revising the wheel circumference from the initial size of 14 inches to 12 inches with a gambot tire profile.

Yamaha Fazzio vs Honda Genio, Who is the Best?

Its presence is predicted as a strategy from AHM to boost sales, which are arguably not as popular as Scoopy or BEAT. On the other hand, the arrival of the latest Genio is also a weapon 'against' Yamaha with its new product, Fazzio, which has recently received a positive response from the public.

In terms of price, when compared to the highest type between the two, they have a price difference of IDR 3,350,000, or the new Genio is cheaper. Examining the price gap and machine cubication are not the same, but at least if converted into a credit scheme, the difference is not that big every month. So, which one is the best for a loan?

Genio vs Fazzio Design

As a new weapon, the Honda Genio now looks fresher with a few changes to the front body cover. The stern design looks bigger, followed by changes to the fender components to calibrate revisions to the legs.

The previous 14-inch wheel was abandoned, now adopting a 12-inch wheel with a larger profile. The visual design of the wheels uses the old Scoopy model, the design is still attractive in tune with the current Genio body. 

But unfortunately on the side of the body to the back, the design is still really the same. Not surprisingly, this motor glide is not an all new status but a facelift, although the changes should be appreciated.

Meanwhile, the Yamaha Fazzio is lined up as a trendy scooter that both targets the millennial market. He looks more classic with a rounded body at the front combined with a boxy design on the side to the rear body.

Now, to make it more classic under the round lights, it is given a front tie component with 3-dimensional accents. Then the front tebeng on the left and right are given turn signals which are also oval in shape.

Because it is targeting young consumers, it is certain that their favorite name is applied. Most visible is the use of 12-inch wheels which are indeed a trend in scooters with retro DNA. Gambot-profile tires have also become standard on the new tuning fork scooter.

Construction Build Genio vs Fazzio

Genio is built from a type of chassis called eSAF (enhanced Smart Architecture Frame). Using thin plates joined by laser welding, like the chassis in a car.

Mounted in the middle to the rear frame. Meanwhile, the main chassis that is connected to the komstir still uses box iron pipes. This technology certainly has a positive effect on the sense of driving.

The guarantee is 8 percent lighter weight than the usual frame. The result, agile handling and easy towing. The characters are also stiffer and stronger. Due to its flatter shape, it provides more efficient use of space

All changes in the latest Genio must be redeemed with an increase in weight of up to 3 kg. The Genio CBS type weighs 92 kg and the Genio Varian CBS-ISS weighs 93 kg. Nevertheless, the fuel consumption is still claimed to be similar, namely 59.1 km / liter (ISS feature on). The test was carried out using the ECE R40 method. If the fuel is fully charged, then this scooter can explore up to 248 km.

In terms of dimensions, the latest Genio measures 1,862 mm in length, 694 mm in width and 1,061 mm in height. The wheelbase is 1,251 mm, the ground clearance is 150 mm, and the seat height is 744 mm. Well, for the capacity of the fuel tank, it can store up to 4.2 liters of gasoline and has a luggage capacity of 14 liters.

Yamaha Fazzio prefers an underbone type frame (backbone). This chassis utilizes an iron frame with a pipe-like model. It claims to have a very sturdy and simple construction. It will feel stiffer, but provides a more established stable effect.

Modern design with negative display technology. Inside there is a speed indicator, odometer, fuel. Mainly there are indicators that are connected to the Y-Connect application, such as smartphone battery, message and phone notifications, and a digital clock. The screen is in the form of a rectangular box and is wrapped in an oval cover.

The power outlet is located in the front left compartment, and is complete with a cover. There are two covers that protect it. The first is the console with the drawer, and the second is the power outlet cover itself. Unfortunately the lighter to connect to the power outlet is sold separately.

All types already use a smart key with an answer back system. The shape of the knob is similar to the Yamaha Maxi variant. The rest of this motorbike is equipped with LED headlights, brake locks, side stand switches, eco riding, and a start stop system feature whose function is to maximize fuel consumption.

Meanwhile, Genio is now more practical about charging the device's battery. The power outlet component was moved to the right front deck complete with the closing compartment.

Next is the application of LED lights, the Idling Stop System for the CBS-ISS variant, the panel meter is digital with the availability of speed information, odometer, fuel, and ECO indicators as an efficient driving guide.

Genio vs Fazzio Engine Specifications

In this matter we must refer to the specification sheet of each manufacturer. Starting from the Genio, the pacemaker packs an engine with eSP (enhanced Smart Power) technology, 109.5 SOHC.

Yamaha Fazzio

This engine promises maximum power of up to 6.6 kW or 8.85 horsepower at 7,500 rpm, and peak torque of 9.3 Nm at 5,500 rpm. This means that the new Genio still uses the same engine base as in 2019.

The compression mix still stands at 10.0:1 and its diameter and bore x stroke play out at 47.0 x 63.1 mm. The capacity for periodic oil changes is still only 0.65 liters. Yes, he sticks with the same engine as the model that launched in 2019.

While the Yamaha Fazzio is equipped with a 125 cc, 1-cylinder, SOHC, air-cooled, and injection-fueled engine. Maximum power is at 8.3 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and peak torque of 10.6 Nm at 4,500 rpm.

The advantage of this machine is that it has power assist or what Yamaha claims is hybrid technology. The focus is on offering fuel efficiency and faster initial acceleration.

In short, this engine mechanism focuses on 2 interrelated power sources, namely the power produced from conventional engines and the power supplied from the Electric Power Assist Start (EPAS). To support the 2 sectors, there are a number of components that support each other, including the Smart Motor Generator (SMG), the battery (battery), and the Starter Generator Control Unit (SGCU).

Honda Genio

The power assist in Fazzio will only be active in the first 3 seconds when the gas lever is turned. That power is the result of the conventional engine and its EPAS, so the initial acceleration will be more powerful and smoother when on uphill terrain or carried in a car.

Genio vs Fazzio Color Option

The New Honda Genio is still presented in 2 different variants, namely CBS and CBS-ISS and 6 color options are presented. For the CBS, which sells for Rp. 18,050,000, it has 3 colors, Radiant Red Black, Radiant Brown Black, and Radiant Black.

Meanwhile, for the second type, Fazzio Connected Lux comes with more elegant color options, namely Prestige Silver and Matte Black for IDR 22,000,000 OTR Jakarta

Who excels?

Actually, the choice is yours, but we will try to help summarize. Both are equally suitable for daily mobility use. The design and dimensions of both are still ideal for use by all groups, including novice riders.

However, Fazzio comes with more advanced technology and features than Genio, he is already equipped with Y-Connect which makes it easy for owners to get information about vehicles from one hand of the device. Then there is also a hybrid technology that offers fuel efficiency and acceleration when opening the gas lever.

From the engine sector, he is also superior because he is equipped with a larger capacity engine. Then the output generated from the engine is also better than the Genio. However, to propose to Fazzio, you must be prepared to spend more than IDR 3 million.

New Genio is also the right choice for you, especially if the focus is only on commuter vehicles. The price is more affordable, then the wheel changes make it more like a Scoopy, and is now more comfortable because there is a change in the position of the power outlet. Don't forget the fuel consumption claims from AHM and the results from our tests, they can be your current cheap scooter alternative.
