Smart Key System (SKS) has 2 (two) main functions. First there is the Answer Back System to make it easier for riders to find the position of the bike in the parking lot within a radius of 20 meters. Immobilizer to improve the safety of the motorcycle when parked, because the motor can only turn on if there is a remote within a radius of 80 cm.

In order for the Smart Key System (SKS) feature to function optimally and smoothly, PT Yamaha Indonesia Motor Mfg provides some proper and easy maintenance tips:

1. Avoid pressing the knob forcefully if the smart key is not near the motor. Be sure to operate the knob instead of the ignition normally, to prevent mechanical damage to the knob. In addition, considering the motor can only turn on if there is a remote, then make sure the remote is always near the motor when pressing the knob.

2. Make sure the remote does not fall and is always in dry conditions. Remote as a signaler, even though it is equipped with an anti-water seal, make sure the remote is always dry from the water before it is turned on to prevent damage due to short circuits.

3. Avoid Electromagnetic Radiation. Avoid the habit of placing credits around objects with high electromagnetic radiation, such as mobile phones, televisions, signal transmitters, and the like. This has the potential to disrupt the signal on the remote SKS.

4. Always make sure you have pressed the off button on the remote after turning off the motorcycle. If the remote is not off or still on after the motor dies, the signal from the remote continues to radiate thus draining the remote battery. On the Yamaha Gear 125, after the bike is turned off the remote can give the rider a reminder notification to turn off the remote.

5. Always check the remote battery. If the radius of the remote with the motorcycle is too short when used then it is advisable to immediately replace the battery on the remote.

6. Make sure to always remember/save the pin number smart key. This makes it easier for consumers to inform the dealer in case of a key loss.

7. Avoid storing remotes in the trunk of the motor or rack on the motor. This is so as not to be left behind or lost. If you lose the key, the consumer will have to replace the smart unit, SGCU, and remote control.

8. Always check the cleanliness of sockets and cable lines on the smart unit as signal receivers to avoid short circuiting.

No official name has yet been given for this electric bike, but the design is slightly similar and takes the base of the Yamaha NMax. He's got a pretty gambot body visual, footrest with a selonjoran option, and also a wide handlebar, high and covered sort of cover.

The development of this electric motorcycle is based on the Yamaha E01 and E02 concept bikes introduced at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. However, from the body shape of the electric motor that will debut in 2022 it is more similar to the E01-style maxi scooter.

Meanwhile, Yoshihiro Hidaka said the Yamaha electric bike has a performance comparable to the 125 cc class. The reach with a fully charged battery is still maximized so that its use can be in accordance with the needs of consumers.

"The instrument panel shows that the remaining cruising distance is 70 km when it is almost fully charged. This is not an accurate number because it changes depending on driving patterns and environmental conditions such as temperature. But it is possible to be 2 times more than the Yamaha E-Vino," hidaka explained.

No official specifications have been published from Yamaha, even for the exterior shape that is still disguised with camouflage stickers. But we can see if the pollution-free motor has lights with LED technology and the use of a body that feels sturdy. This bike has also been equipped with an ABS braking system (Anti-lock Braking System) that can be seen on the indicator in the meter panel.

"I am confident in the completeness of the product, mileage per charge, and battery safety. However, the price is higher than the Chinese manufacturer's EV. How do I get it down? It may be an option to switch to a cheaper battery, but if you're considering recycling and reusing, you should choose a better battery," Hidaka said of electric motor production and related selling prices.

Yamaha E01 Concept Bike

As explained at the beginning, the Yamaha E01 bears a resemblance to the NMAX. It's just that, because it is a concept motor look and shape is very thick with futuristic design. For example, from the face to the stern all taper and combined with the curves of the body that gambot. On the legs also look bongsor especially on the rear wheels, because it already carries a swing arm and also monoshock suspension.

Yamaha Indonesia has an electric motor.

In the domestic market, PT Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing (YIMM) actually already has electrified vehicles through the E-Vino which was first introduced in 2017. However, unfortunately until now it has not been officially sold for reasons still doing market research.

Related to the Yamaha E01 concept bike, the manufacturer in February 2021 has patented its design at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). Yes of course to protect the visual and design patents of the Yamaha EO1 that will enter the production kitchen. 

Although a number of electric vehicle legal umbrellas have been promulgated by the government, Yamaha Indonesia considers it still needs to study consumers and understand the ecosystem. It feels like if a large motorcycle manufacturer like Yamaha has started selling electric vehicles, soon the era of zero-pollution vehicles will soon mushroom in Indonesia.

Automotive 2022, Toyota: Optimistic to Improve and Ready for Hybrid Production in Indonesia - Indonesia's automotive market will still be challenged in the next year. However, optimism to build the market remains on the part of producers. One of them is PT Toyota Astra Motor (TAM) which predicts the automotive market in 2022 will be better. This is evident from the achievements that have increased at the end of the year.

Anton Jimmi Suwandy, Marketing Director of TAM revealed that Toyota's wholesale sales from January to November were close to 800,000 units. Anton is confident, Toyota is able to close 2021 with sales above 850,000 units.

"Hopefully next year the economy and pandemic will be more stable. We hope the market can be above 900,000 units. Of course Toyota wants to remain number one with a market share of 33 percent," Anton said in the Toyota 2021 media gathering, Tuesday (12/21/2021).

The SUV market in the next year will remain one of the growing markets because it currently has a seven-passenger carrying capability. This segment complements the widely offered product options in the MPV segment.

In addition, environmentally friendly products will also increase. This is in line with the government's desire to accelerate in efforts to re-emphasize carbon emissions and embrace electric vehicle technology. Toyota also promised to present some new products next year.

Regarding PPnBM, Anton considered this government policy one that evokes the domestic automotive market. Toyota is also feeling the impact of the policy.

"Our growth is higher than the market, approximately reaching 84.5 percent compared to January to November 2020. The models that contributed were quite varied but the largest volumes were still Avanza, Rush, Innova, Raize and LCGC," anton said.

New Models of Electric Vehicles

Following existing market trends, Toyota is also known to be preparing electric vehicle products that will be produced locally. Actually this is not new info but on yesterday's occasion was reinforced again by President Director of Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indonesia (TMMIN) Warih Andang Tjahjono who revealed that his party had prepared the export of locally produced hybrid cars. This export distribution is said to be a bridge of supply to the global market. "Export of locally produced HEV (hybrid electric vehicle) models in 2022," Waring said on the same occasion.

Toyota supports the government's desire to accelerate the zero emissions target. Toyota Indonesia believes the utilization of all automotive technology must be through a multipath way strategy.

This includes utilizing several electric vehicle products which include BEV, PHEV, HEV, SEV and hydrogen. This makes it easy for customers to choose based on their needs and of course their respective abilities. During this time pure electric vehicles are considered the only way to achieve the zero emission target. This then makes some people echo the electric vehicle model outside of pure EV is not pro with emissions reductions when it is one way to defeat the same enemy that is emissions.

So what will be Toyota's first hybrid product in Indonesia? TMMIN's Director of Administration, Corporate and External Relations, Bob Azam, revealed that he will make the hybrid product from models already on the market.

"Next year we will start producing electrification models. Let's start with the models that have been circulating in Indonesia. Thus we hope that it can be directly accepted by the community because the model is familiar," bob said on the same occasion.

In addition, Toyota also wants the supporting industry to be maintained. The step of using existing models will still keep the automotive industry aka local purchase that has been maintained.

If traced to the global market some toyota models that already come with the latest hybrid technology is Raize which is a twin of Daihatsu Rocky. The system is also quite modern where the conventional engine becomes a charger and the car is driven by an electric motor.

Some other models that are likely to be Toyota's first hybrid products in Indonesia are Innova and Veloz. Both of these products are counted as original Toyota Indonesia products that also have a high local purchase level. The latest veloz update makes it possible to get a touch of hybrid technology.

Guess what this isn't going to end. Let's just wait for toyota's new hybrid product. This step includes an advance because there are currently manufacturers who reveal they will present EV products with production in Indonesia. We just wait in 2022 with the environmentally friendly vehicle market that is increasingly crowded.

"Currently there are still those who sell old NMax in some dealers. But I can't tell you where or where it still is, because the conditions of the dealers are different."

According to him, selling old models when the latest generation has been launched is commonplace. It was said to be part of the process of the market, not not being confident with the new generation but accommodating consumer demand.

"But now, for sure in production we only produce all new ones," he explained.
