Impression of Yamaha Fazzio, a scooter with a unique design, economical fuel consumption

 PT Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing (YIMM) presents a uniquely designed scooter, namely the Fazzio Hybrid-Connected which is sold at a price of Rp. 21.7 million and Rp. 22 million, which is on the road in Jakarta.



Yamaha then invited a number of media crews to try the Fazzio Hybrid-Connected directly around the city of Bogor, West Java on Friday (4/2).

In addition to its unique design, the thing that stands out is the efficient consumption of fuel oil (BBM). Although fuel consumption depends on driving style and traffic conditions, in this activity there were participants who reached 92 km/liter and 82 km/liter.

The fuel consumption record can be achieved thanks to the latest generation Blue Core technology, where the motorcycle engine has two synergistic power sources, namely the power from the engine and the power from the Electric Power Assist Start.

The combination of power from the engine and Electric Power Assist Start makes motorcycle acceleration more powerful and smoother, especially when the motorcycle is carrying passengers, goods, and crossing uphill roads.

There is also a One Push Start system which makes the engine start quickly with one touch, as well as a Stop & Start System which functions to turn off the engine automatically when the motor is not in use to save fuel.

In addition, the presence of Electric Power Assist Start technology makes this tiny scooter able to provide qualified acceleration, whether it is when carried alone, with goods or in a group. The technology works in the third second via a battery boost that serves to assist the initial pull by combining engine power and EPAS. "Indeed, there is time needed for battery recovery itself," said Aji Handoko, Technical and Education After Sales Service some time ago in Bogor. "There are two modes in this case, firstly when the motorbike is running fast until it stops completely or 0 km / h, it's one and a half seconds the motorbike will die, it's different if it is stuck, and if you drive this vehicle slowly the motorbike will die in a matter of 5 minutes. seconds," said Aji Handoko. The motorbike, which is included in the classy scooter category, has the latest features to make it easier for riders to stay connected through the Y-Connect application.

The advantage of this feature is that it makes it easier for owners to stay connected with phone and message notifications, parking locations, maintenance recommendations (Engine Oil and Battery / Battery), monitoring fuel consumption, and malfunction notifications.

In addition to engine performance, the unique Fazzio Hybrid-Connected design also makes the driver more confident and becomes the center of attention on the road. Although the design is relatively small, it is comfortable to drive by people with a height of 176 cm, because the knees do not coincide with the front deck so that it is still easy to maneuver. Yamaha Fazzio has two types, namely FAZZIO LUX with an elegant and premium color appearance, and FAZZIO NEO with a choice of sporty colors. Fazzio LUX comes with two premium color options, LUX Matte Black and LUX Prestige Silver. Meanwhile, the Yamaha Fazzio Hybrid - Connected NEO comes in four sporty color options, NEO Cyan, NEO Red, NEO Beige, and NEO Black. The NEO type Fazzio is marketed for IDR 21.7 million while the LUX type Fazzio costs IDR 22 million, both are on the road in Jakarta and are available at Yamaha dealers starting January 2022.

There are several things that are the highlight of this product. Most visible is the design which is quite unique for the Indonesian market. By adopting a boxy body, the details of this motorbike are also decorated with oval shapes in many parts.

At first glance, its appearance looks similar to the Yamaha QBIX sold abroad. Meanwhile, in Indonesia itself, this motorbike is often touted as a competitor to the Honda Scoopy.

Since its initial launch in Indonesia, the Yamaha Fazzio is available in two variants, namely Neo and Lux. The difference is in the color and graphics of the body.

Yamaha Fazzio Neo comes with a choice of more diverse and brighter colors, for example cyan, red, beige, and black. Meanwhile, the Yamaha Fazzio Lux puts forward an elegant feel with neutral colors, such as silver and black.

Latest Yamaha Fazzio Hybrid Price

As mentioned earlier, the current Yamaha Fazzio price is Rp. 22 million. More details about this can be seen in the information below which is compiled from the official website of the manufacturer.

Yamaha Fazzio Neo BlackRp21.890.000
Yamaha Fazzio Lux Prestige SilverRp22.190.000
Yamaha Fazzio Lux Matte BlackRp22.190.000

The price of the Yamaha Fazzio is arguably the slightest difference with the Honda Scoopy which is its closest competitor. However, this Yamaha product has its own advantages.

One of them is the use of a hybrid system to support performance. Although the way it works is quite simple, functionally the existence of the system deserves appreciation.

 The important thing to note from the specifications of the Yamaha Fazzio is that it has a hybrid system. The way it works is simple because there is no addition of new components compared to other Yamaha motorcycles that are already Bluecore.

The Yamaha Fazzio hybrid system maximizes the Smart Generator Motor (SMG) component. If in general this component only functions to support the work of the electric starter, now it also serves as a power assist.

The power assist will provide additional power when the motor is about to accelerate. Activates after the engine speed is above 1,300 rpm and will automatically stop after 3 seconds or when the engine speed reaches 5,500 rpm.

Price of Yamaha Fazzio Hybrid, Review of Specifications and Advantages – Disadvantages

Although quite simple, consumers will get extra benefits in terms of performance. Then because there are no additional components, the selling price of this motorbike can still be competitive.

It's a different story if you look at other hybrid motorcycles whose components are more complex, such as the Honda PCX e: HEV. This product has an additional lithium-ion type battery in addition to the battery. This makes the selling price quite high with a tag of more than Rp. 40 million.

Competitor Yamaha Fazzio Hybrid

In terms of specifications, there are not many two-wheeled vehicle products in Indonesia that use a hybrid system such as the Yamaha Fazzio. However, when viewed from the price, this automatic scooter can be reasonable when juxtaposed with the Honda Scoopy.

What's more from the design both lead to the same style. Prioritizing a modern retro aura with rounded body shapes.

A number of Indonesian automotive media reviews recommend the Yamaha Fazzio for consumers who want more agile performance. This is based on a larger engine capacity and additional power from the power assist which makes it easy to accelerate.

Although on the other hand the Yamaha Fazzio is said to have a setting that tends to be hard. This can indeed support its performance when it comes to maneuvering. However, the consequence is that comfort is reduced.

What about the Honda Scoopy? This product is considered more suitable for consumers who want an economical and comfortable automatic scooter. With a smaller engine capacity, it is natural that the Honda Scoopy's fuel consumption is economical.

So, when it comes to features, Yamaha Fazzio has the advantage of connecting with the Y-Connect mobile application. That way the owner can monitor various information about the vehicle through his smart phone.

Yamaha Fazzio What Fuel?

With a fairly high engine compression, Yamaha Fazzio is suitable for using gasoline with 92 octane such as Pertamax or Shell Super.

For those who are laymen, do not misinterpret the hybrid system attached to this product.

Although in principle there is the help of electrification technology, the Yamaha Fazzio still relies on the internal combustion engine as its main power source.

Another question that is also circulating on the internet is about the meaning of the name Fazzio.

What is Fazzio?

Fazzio's name is taken from the combination of the words "fashion" and "liscio". As is known, "fashion" means a style that is closely related to dress. Meanwhile "liscio" is taken from Italian which can be interpreted simply.

Thus a review of the price of the Yamaha Fazzio as well as specifications, features, and advantages and disadvantages. It can be concluded that this product is a new choice in the automatic scooter segment with modern engine technology.

Advantages of Yamaha Fazzio

Yamaha Fazzio is a hybrid motorcycle that is equipped with advanced features. Here are some very interesting advantages to note:

1. Blue Core Hybrid Technology

Yamaha Fazzio is equipped with Blue Core Hybrid technology which makes this motorbike more economical. This technology makes it more powerful and environmentally friendly.

The hybrid system of this motorbike has two power sources, namely the engine and Electric Power Assist Start, and both are in synergy with each other. In addition, the Smart Motor Generator (SMG), the Starter Generator Control Unit, and the battery also synergize with each other.

2. Efficient First 3 Seconds Pull

Based on studies, pulling the motor in the first three seconds requires a lot of power. However, this does not apply to the Yamaha Fazzio as a hybrid motorcycle.

When you run the motor, the hybrid feature will work for the first three seconds and after that it turns off automatically. This can help the motor to be more efficient in using fuel.

3. Communication Control Unit Technology

Usually when driving a car, you will connect your smartphone to the car. With Yamaha Fazzio, you can also connect your cellphone to a motorcycle.

Yamaha Fazzio is equipped with Communication Control Unit technology that allows you to connect your smartphone to a motorcycle via Y-connect.

4. Smart Key System

The Yamaha Fazzio lock system is also sophisticated. Therefore, you can start this motor without a key or keyless. Fazzio also has an answer back feature that will make it easier for Toppers to find it in the parking lot.

5. Large Luggage Capacity

If you often travel with a lot of luggage, this motorbike is for you. Its 17.8 L luggage capacity can fit a lot of stuff. On the side there is a Double Hook Carabiner for hanging additional items.

6. Unique Classic Design

With the shape of a large round headlamp and a squared front, it seems that the design of the Yamaha Fazzio looks to carry European influences.

The appearance looks quite simple, but still stylish and classy. The headlights also have LED lights which make it brighter.

7. Many Color Choices Yamaha fazzio specifications

Yamaha Fazzio is available in two variants, namely Fazzio Neo and Lux. The two variants have slight differences, namely in the design.

The Neo variant is available in Red, Cyan, Beige, and Black glossy type, with black seats. While the Lux variant is available in colors that look more luxurious, namely Matte Black and Prestige Silver with brown leather seats.

Disadvantages of Yamaha Fazzio

Although included in the category of advanced hybrid motorcycles, Yamaha Fazzio certainly still has some drawbacks that need to be considered:

1. Turn Signal Bulb

Although the main lights have used LED lights, the lights from the pens still use light bulbs. However, this is not very visible because the glass is covered by frosty frosty glass.

2. Less Maximum Power

Although a hybrid, Yamaha Fazzio has a power that is not too big. The Fazzio can generate power of 6.2 kW at 6,500 rpm and 10.6 Nm at 4,500 rpm. However, these specifications are sufficient for motorcycle users in general.

3. Prices tend to be expensive

As a hybrid motorcycle, of course the Yamaha Fazzio is priced at a higher price than other automatic motorcycles. However, when compared to other brand hybrid motorcycles, this motorbike is cheaper.

Different from Ordinary Hybrids, Here's How Hybrid Works at Yamaha Fazzio

 It turns out that the way the hybrid system embedded in the Yamaha Fazzio works is different from the usual hybrid system.

So, the hybrid system in Yamaha Fazzio actually maximizes the technology that already exists in previous Yamaha motorcycle engines.

Different from Ordinary Hybrids, Here's How Hybrid Works at Yamaha Fazzio

There is no additional special part to help the hybrid system in Yamaha Fazzio work.

"So actually the hybrid technology in Yamaha Fazzio is Hybrid Power Assist," said Antonius Widiantoro as Public Relations Manager, YRA and Community of PT Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing (YIMM).

The Hybrid Power Assist in the Yamaha Fazzio works by maximizing the Smart Motor Generator (SMG) function that already exists in the previous Yamaha Bluecore motorcycle engine.

"In the past, SMG only functioned as an electric starter on the motorbike, now it is maximized as Hybrid Power Assist," added Ferry Nurul Fajar, Technical & Education PT YIMM.

So in the Hybrid Power Assist system in this Fazzio engine, SMG will provide additional power to the engine when the motor accelerates.

This is because the Hybrid Power Assist system cannot work alone, it only helps provide additional power for 3 seconds when the motor accelerates from rest.

Test Drive: Invite the Honda HR-V RS Turbo to Dance at the Mandalika Circuit

 For the first time the Honda HR-V is available in the RS variant. This type not only looks more sporty, but is also equipped with a more capable performance package.

Honda HR-V RS is equipped with a 1.5 turbo engine. The engine is the same as that used by the Honda CR-V, Civic and Accord, only the output produced is not the same. Even so, the power of 177 PS @ 6,000 rpm and peak torque of 240 Nm @ 6,600 rpm is not a performance record that can be underestimated.

All New Honda HR-V Mandalika

So when the opportunity came to try out the maximum performance of this car at the Mandalika circuit yesterday (23/5), I didn't waste it. All aspects of performance are seriously tested on the race track.

First I tried the acceleration ability. Interestingly, Honda has prepared the previous generation HR-V for comparison. The old version uses a naturally aspirated 1.8 liter engine. Its power is only 139 PS 6,500 rpm with a peak torque of 169 Nm.

Just from looking at the very significant difference in specifications, you can already imagine the difference on the track. Sure enough, the 240 Nm of torque from the latest HR-V turbo engine promises a much more optimal acceleration.

The Honda Civic RS guided me to dance on the Mandalika circuit. Alvin Bahar racer who became the instructor. The first round was an introduction to the 4.31 km circuit which has 17 corners.

The second round, already memorized the racing line and braking points. The third round just tortured its performance to the maximum.

If you have or even frequent track days at the Sentul circuit, it is guaranteed that the Mandalika circuit will provide even more fun. Because it not only presents beautiful natural scenery, but the layout is quite challenging.

Lucky Honda HR-V with the best performance package that became my dancing partner. But apart from the powerful turbo engine, I was honestly surprised by the quality of the suspension dings. The latest generation of Honda HR-V has a driving stability quality that is much more sporty than before. Why?

So, when you turn right at corner 2 and immediately bend left at corner 3, the symptoms of body roll are minimal. The car feels so gripped on the asphalt that the movement of the car body is not difficult to control.

Even when I went too fast and missed the braking point at corners 10 and 13, the car did understeer, but just adjust the speed and the steering wheel is easily corrected back on track.

Steering movement feels linear and accurate. Braking also works perfectly. Measured steering movement and promising braking give you the confidence to drive the new HR-V crazier than ever.

In essence, this car is not so difficult to tame. So it doesn't take long to have fun on the Mandalika circuit. Improved performance from a more powerful turbo engine and a sporty driving character successfully make the latest generation Honda HR-V RS more fun to drive.

So how does it feel to drive when used on the highway? My group and I who took part in the Media Test Drive of the Honda HR-V went to Bali (24/5). We were loaned a unit of Honda HR-V SE with a 1.5 liter non-turbo petrol engine and released it to explore the features of this car around the island of Bali. So wait for the review in the next article!

6. Item Hook is Safer

The manufacturer also provides a new model of hook or hook in the all new Scoopy. Now use a locking model at the top, so that when you carry items that are hung on the components, they don't come off easily.

New Arrivals All New Subaru Forester Against Honda CR-V

 The discussion about the latest product of the Subaru Forester SUV does not stop. After thoroughly discussing the product, now the discussion is about the comparison with its rivals.

From we records, there are indeed several rivals in the Subaru Forester class. This is commonplace because the five-passenger SUV product at a price of Rp. 500 million is being filled with various products.

The most visible is actually the New Honda CR-V. Some of the criteria that make this product a head to head rival with Forester include the ability to carry five passengers and a price in the range of IDR 500 million. As a medium SUV, the CR-V can be said to be one of the best-selling models in this class. What are the comparisons? Let's discuss them one by one.

The first language is what is offered from the exterior. About the design can be said to depend on each taste. But some things are certain, among others, about the dimensions and also what features are on the exterior.

First from Subaru Forester. This latest model offers dimensions of 4,640 mm in length, 1,815 mm in width and 1,730 mm in height with a ground clearance of 220 mm. The main lights already use LED projector technology with adaptive driving beam and responsive steering headlight.

Regarding the size of the legs, the CR-V uses a two-tone 18-inch alloy wheel. There are four color choices, namely platinum white pearl, lunar silver metallic, meteoroid gray metallic and crystal black pearl.

Looking at the dimensional data above, Forester and CR-V are slightly different in terms of dimensions. The Forester is longer and taller while the CR-V is wider. Its approach for the Forester is towards a pure SUV while the CR-V takes an urban SUV approach.

Enter the matter of the interior which also offers a variety of features. First, the Forester offers a luggage capacity of 500 liters to 1,740 liters when the rear seats are folded. In addition, passenger comfort comes from the 8-inch head unit, the Harman Kardon 9 speaker 576 watt audio system, the use of nappa leather, front side view monitor and sunroof as an offer for potential customers.

There is also the Subaru All Round Savety feature which consists of auto vehicle hold, vehicle dynamic control system, hazard avoidance, responsive steering headlight, 6 SRS airbags, high beam assist, and rear vehicle detection. Don't forget the Subaru EyeSight technology, which is the latest ADAS feature on the Forester. It features a pre-collision braking system, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, pre-collision throttle management, and lane departure prevention. A distinctive feature for modern vehicles.

New CR-V also does not want to lose. Comfort comes from the panoramic power sunroof, 5-inch TFT meter cluster screen, and dual zone auto AC. Entertainment comes from a 7-inch head unit with 8 speakers throughout the cabin, remote engine start, and a multi angle view camera.

Regarding the interior and this feature, it seems that both provide various advantages in terms of entertainment and security. It's just that these complete features can only be felt on the top variant of each model.

The next discussion is about the machine and technical. Each model is confident with excellence in this section.

Subaru Forester, for example, believes in offering one engine choice, namely the FB20 Boxer Engine, 4-cylinder, 2.0L Naturally Aspirated. This engine produces 156 ps of power at 6000 rpm and up to 196 Nm of torque at 4000rpm. The engine uses a 7-speed Lineartronic CVT transmission and Active Torque Split AWD. This is for smooth power distribution and gearshift can also be done manually using the paddle shift. The Subaru Forester is also equipped with X-Mode aka driving mode to optimize the engine for various road conditions. In the EyeSight variant, there are various driving modes, namely Snow/Dirt and Deep Snow/Mud.

New Honda CR-V comes with two engine options. The first 1.5L VTEC Turbo engine with Earth Dreams Technology. This engine produces a maximum power of 190 ps at 5,600 rpm and a maximum torque of 240 Nm at 2,000 to 5,000 rpm. The second variant is a 2.0L engine that comes with SOHC i-VTEC technology which produces 154 PS of power and 189 Nm of torque. This engine is mated to an Earth Dreams Technology CVT transmission. The paddle shift feature is also present for the practicality of driving in transmission shifts. There are ECON and Eco Assist modes for fuel-efficient driving.

Seen in this section, in terms of power, the Forester engine is not as dominant as the CR-V engine. However, Subaru offers AWD drive with a variety of driving modes. Something that is quite luxurious in this segment. For consumers who want a large power intake, the choice of course looks to the Honda CR-V turbo engine.

Last discussion about price. This fifth generation Forester in Indonesia was introduced with 2 trim variants. First, there is the Subaru Forester 2.0i-L which is offered at a price of IDR 579.5 million and the Subaru Forester 2.0i-S EyeSight is offered at a price of IDR 659.5 million. Both are on the road status in Jakarta.

All of the all-new Subaru Foresters marketed through PT Plaza Auto Mega, are offered with a 3 year / 100,000 km warranty, 3 years / 50,000 km free service (depending on which one is reached first), as well as a 3-year Subaru Roadside Assistance, assistance service. 24/7 emergency by Atlas Indonesia.

Glancing at the New Honda CR-V. This SUV is offered in several variants starting from the 2.0L i-Vtec engine variant at a price of IDR 515.9 million, the 1.5L Turbo variant at a price of IDR 590.9 million, the Honda Sensing Prestige Turbo variant at a price of IDR 651.4 million and finally there is a 1.5L variant. turbo black edition at a price of Rp. 666.4 million. Honda offers an economical package for aftersales which consists of 4 years / 50,000 km, 8 years / 100,000 km periodic maintenance and free periodic maintenance services for 4 years / 50,000 km.

It can be seen that the placement of the Forester price is in the middle between the CR-V, the lowest variant of the 1.5L Turbo and the top variant with a touch of the Black Edition. Both can be said to be on the same level in terms of features and comfort, although it is worth admitting that the offer of AWD drive is one of the interesting points from Forester.

But for potential customers who want to get Forester in their garage immediately, they have to be patient. The reason is that Subaru Indonesia said that the distribution of units to consumers takes up to four months. This is around August 2022. The reason is none other than the semiconductor chip crisis which hampers production. Meanwhile, Honda has not announced whether the reason for the chip also affects the CR-V pivot as is also felt in the new models, namely the BR-V and HR-V.

For potential customers with funds of Rp. 500 million to Rp. 600 million, it seems that there is no need to worry about the features offered at this price level. Back to the matter of taste and the funds available to bring home one of these two models.
