Yamaha Fazzio Hybrid Smitten, Take a Peek at the Service Cost of the First Year of Use

 Yamaha Fazzio is still the only entry level automatic motorcycle equipped with a hybrid device in the Indonesian market. Although it is classified as a mild hybrid, the manufacturer claims that the injection of technology makes fuel consumption more economical and performance.

Well, before buying it, it would be better to know the service cost of this motorbike. The goal is of course to calculate how much the cost of ownership is, especially during periodic maintenance in an authorized workshop.

Explained by Technical Advisor of PT Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing (YIMM), Slamet Kasianom. Basically the Fazzio bears a resemblance to Yamaha's other 125 cc engined scooters, both in terms of the internal engine and the legs. So you could say the service cost is not much different.

It's the same with everything else (Yamaha 125 cc). Including the price of fast moving parts, it is similar to the Yamaha Freego," said Slamet, not long ago.

Slamet continued, after the unit covered a distance of 1, 000 km it was mandatory to perform service. Then the duration of the first, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and subsequent servicing uses a count distance of 3, 000 km or once every 3 months.

For your information, all service costs are borne by Yamaha Indonesia until the 4th service time or when it reaches a distance of 10 thousand km. In the first service the owner is not charged for service fees and engine oil changes, but in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th service services are covered only but for the replacement of parts or lubricants will be charged to the owner.

Then in the 2nd service you will spend money on the purchase of engine oil and CVT axle oil. The engine oil used is Yamalube Power Matic (0.8L) for IDR 47.5 thousand and axle oil (140 ML) for IDR 16 thousand.

During the 3rd service you need to spend only IDR 47.5 thousand to buy engine oil. There is no axle oil change and you can still get free service. After your Fazzio has covered 10 thousand kilometers or in the 4th service, the owner is advised to replace the engine lubricant and axle oil again. The total cost to be incurred is IDR 63.5 thousand.

Entering the 5th service or the odometer number already shows 13 thousand kilometers you will no longer get free service. Here will be charged the cost of servicing, changing the engine oil, air filter and rear brake pads. Then the money that must be spent is IDR 231.5 thousand. Especially for brake pads, it is situational depending on use, it may not be replaced or have been replaced since the 3rd service.

Total Cost of Yamaha Fazzio Service in Year One

After totaling, yamaha Fazzio service costs for 1 year of use reached Rp406 thousand. This price includes 4 engine oil changes, 2 axle oil changes, 1 brake lining change, 1 air filter change, and 1 time service fee.

Below are some fast moving component prices of the Yamaha Fazzio Hybrid. However, it should be noted that the included price tag has the status of Suggested Retail Price (HED), which means it could be different in each domicile or region.

Leaked New Yamaha XMax 250, Here are the Changes and Predictions of The New Features

 Yamaha is reportedly preparing the latest version of its bongsor scooter Yamaha XMax 300 or which in Indonesia is more familiar with its 250 cc engine. A number of photos show that this bike will get some refreshes even though we say it's only minor.

Citing RideApart, the bike, which is suspected to be the latest model from yamaha XMax, is being tested on the road. The report is that the bike that is currently conducting the test pockets the specific specifications of the European market.

From the picture we can see if the manufacturer does not close or camouflage thoroughly its form. The unit is simply wrapped in some kind of matte black-winded sticker from the fascia to the stern.

Its general form is not much different from the Yamaha XMax sold today. However, if you look at it in more detail, there are changes to the face that appear a little calmer than the current version.

Furthermore, the component near the windshield now has a lamp cluster which is likely to be a marker of the turn signal. While in the side body sector, the rear body, seats, and rims have not changed or are the same as the existing models.

New Features in Yamaha XMax

It has been almost 6 years since the Yamaha XMax has not changed in the design sector. Nevertheless, this bike is still well received by the market because of its attractive visuals.

This design is likely to continue to be maintained by Yamaha, but it is to give the effect of the novelty of the feature sector that will be improved. Previous devices such as the ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) braking system on the front and rear tires will be maintained with the addition of a traction control system. Not only that, it is reported that there will also be an electric front shield feature to adjust the height level of the windshield electronically.

The latest Yamaha XMax is believed to pack Y-Connect connectivity technology like in the Nmax or Aerox 155 VVA. Through this feature, motorists can connect to motorbikes via smartphones to monitor all important information from the vehicle.

In the European market, yamaha XMax has a Euro 5 engine standard and comes in several engine cubication options, namely 125 cc, 250 cc, 300, cc, and 400 cc. While in Indonesia, XMax is offered with only 1 engine choice, namely 250 cc which is able to produce 22.5 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 24.3 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm.

It is interesting to wait for the presence of the latest Yamaha XMax in the Indonesian market. Considering that rival Honda Forza had already undergone a major change at the beginning of last year.

For Daily Use Honda ADV160, PCX160 or Vario 160?

In the middle of this year, Astra Honda Motor (AHM) presents the Honda ADV160. It is the latest scooter with a capacity of 160 cc, accompanying the PCX160 and Vario 160 which appeared first. Even so, they have a different market. Each of them also offers various advantages. But what if the three are compared to determine who is better off daily driving. Refer

Riding Position

According to Bangkit, one of the reviewers when using a Honda ADV160 from Puncak, Bogor, West Java via Cipamingkis to the Pulogadung area, East Jakarta, the driving position is quite comfortable. With a height of 172 cm plus wearing riding shoes, sitting on the seat of the ADV160 is no longer intimidated. There's still a little bit of jinjit, but it can be outsmarted by raising one foot to the footrest so that the other leg can tread perfectly on the asphalt.

Next is about the position of the hands when driving. He felt that the position of the handlebars of the motor was lower than that of the ADV150. But overall it doesn't change his character. The wide and straight handlebar design keeps the driving experience comfortable. The position of the arm can open perfectly and the journey does not feel excessive soreness.

Continued the Honda PCX160 which was tested by Zenuar while on the AHM Safety Riding and Training Center track, Greenland International Industrial Center (GICC) Deltamas City, Cikarang, West Java. First sitting on it, it is no different from the previous model. It's still the same. It remains to present a relaxed riding position. Both the handlebars, the position of the seats to the footrest are identical to their predecessors.

The contours and thickness of the seats are arguably just right. It's not too loud. The surface of the skin is also quite soft. Moreover, use the model of a stepped seat-separator between the driver and passengers. Make it feel comfortable to support the rider's buttocks. The position of the legs can also adjust to the wishes of the rider. Whether bent or selonjor, the deck is quite spacious.

Then the Honda Vario 160 which was also tried by Zenuar during the urban test ride session. According to him, the sitting position of this scooter is like the old Vario, but with larger dimensions. Ergonomic triangles are still identical. The seat is soft and the legs can tread perfectly. Naturally, the distance from the ground to the seat is only 778 mm and the ground clearence is 140 mm. With a rider height of about 173 cm, reaching this iron horse is easier.

Although the body looks widened, the composition of the steering wheel is the same as in the previous generation. When grabbing the handlebars, the position of the body is not too bent. Although the seats are fused, there is a small part in the middle like a hump, which can support the back of the rider's hips. Make the leg room area with a flat deck still quite spacious.

Handling and Suspension

The agility of the ADV160 when splitting congestion is quite exciting. Slippage is not a problem as long as you can estimate the width of the handlebars and rearview mirrors. Then Rose gave two thumbs up for the front suspension of the ADV160. In his opinion, it is quite tender, comfortable, and able to dampen the trunch very well. But unlike the rear suspension, the perceived subjectiveness is exactly the opposite of the front suspension. The character is louder, a little less comfortable when used on damaged streets let alone when it comes to sleeping police.

Actually, it's not a big problem, the plus point with the design of the harder rear suspension has an impact on the stability of the bike so it's better. When traversing winding roads with a slight damping style, the ADV160 gives a fun sensation.

Based on Zenuar's experience, the Honda PCX160 promises good stability when used daily or turing. Many factors affect it. Starting from the ergonomic triangle, use striped wheels aka different sizes and rear shock absorbers higher than the previous model.

Although the wheelbase is long and the body is large, going in and out of the corners is still agile and agile. Of course, it was helped by the presence of a new model double cradle frame. When twisting around the circuit obstacles, there is no sense of understeer or impression of the rear body being left behind.

While the Honda Vario 160 is relatively stable when carried at high speed on the straights. When winding around in traffic jams, the motor feels weak and easy to control. When the turn is sharp, the position of the rider's body is also easy to adjust the balance. All thanks to the chassis changes that now adopt eSAF technology.

The new suspension and wheels also help in terms of handling. The manufacturer claims that the rear shock absorbers have changed with a longer size. And so, during testing he felt rigid and fairly stable carried maneuvering. The rebound and compression setups are also made commuter-style defaults. Suitable for daily use.

Engine Performance

The Honda ADV160 that Bangkit tried did not have any problems when crossing the climb in the Puncak 2 and Cipamingkis areas. But when the uphill track is quite extreme, the power and torque boost is noticeably reduced. The tip is always to maintain the momentum of torque, gas openings, and brakes.

The layout of the machine can be relied upon when going through fairly damaged paths, sometimes rocks, slippery sand, uneven asphalt, to wet red dirt paths. The presence of traction control features on the rear wheels also makes the ADV160 driving experience safer. Meanwhile, when passing through smooth terrain, and minimal congestion, the power is immediately filled from the lower to the middle revs. But at the top engine revs, it will feel weakened, although the speed of the motor continues to increase.

When referring to the specification data, the Honda ADV160 is injected with an engine identical to the PCX160. It carries a 156.9 cc (rounded 160 cc) engine, 4 valves configured, and supports eSP+ (enhanced Smart Power plus) technology. Maximum power was recorded at 15.8 horsepower at 8,500 rpm, with a peak torque of 14.7 Nm at 6,500 rpm.

Honda PCX160 promises powerful engine performance. When it comes to the initial acceleration, it feels smooth at the bottom revs. But when it reaches the middle round, the push becomes more and more so. This is in line with the character of the overbore engine (60 x 55.5 mm), which is more optimal at high rpm. When trying it out at the AHM safety riding circuit in Deltamas, Cikarang, the lower pull felt smooth. But if it is above 4,000 RPM, this scooter is able to answer expectations.

For the record, the latest PCX carries a single-cylinder mechanical heart, 160 cc, SOHC, 4 valves, liquid-cooled and PGM-FI. Already using a technology called Enhanced Smart Power Plus (eSP+). On paper, he can burst power of 15.78 Hp at 8,500 rpm and 14.7 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm.

Based on the trials, the Vario 160's acceleration is very responsive. The power transmitted through the automatic transmission with a centrifugal clutch is immediately felt at the bottom revs.

When trying it on a fairly deserted highway, his breathing was quite long. Its power charges steadily from medium to high rpm. As evidenced by the achievement of the top speed at 122 kph. Even then, there is still gas left.

The performance of the new engine is significantly improved compared to the old model. Now it carries a 156.9 cc 4-stroke 4-valve eSP+ engine with liquid cooling. According to the manufacturer's data, he is able to produce power of 15.4 ps at 8,500 rpm and 13.8 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm. That figure provides clear evidence that the Vario 160's power is up 2 ps and the torque is up 0.4 Nm from the previous generation. During use, the performance of this sporty scooter engine is quite impressive.

Fuel Efficiency

Based on AHM's internal tests using the WTMC-Euro 3 method, a lift of 45 km per liter was obtained with the ISS (Idling Stop System) feature on. The ADV160 is able to cover a distance of up to 364 kilometers in one full refueling.

But when you try this bike with a mixed driving style, passing through damaged roads, climbs and derivatives, the fuel consumption obtained is higher than the manufacturer's claim. Moving as far as 125.4 km, Bangkit got a fuel efficiency figure of 49 km per liter (ISS on) based on information from the meter panel.

When testing on the highway with a distance of 100 km, the Honda PCX160 showed a figure of 41.2 kpl in mid. But when the method is full-to-full, the resultant is 38.9 kpl. Somewhat the difference is 2 km more. With a gasoline holding space of 8.1-liters. it can cover a distance of 315 km at a time. And if referring to the claim data (45 kpl), it should be up to 360 km more. Pull.

According to the results of full to full testing, the Vario 160, which has been used for 132 km, consumes 3.01 liters of fuel. We can assume, 1 liter is used for about 44 km. This result may be different, depending on how it is driven. And please assume for yourself, whether it is classified as economical or wasteful. For information, all tests used RON 92 type fuel.

Various Excellent Features

The New Honda ADV160 already uses a new designed full digital panel meter and contains quite complete information such as, battery voltage indicators, ambient temperature information, odometer, trip A, trip B, tachometer, trip duration (elapsed time), real-time fuel consumption, fuel consumption 1 and 2, to the setting button which is now placed in front of the handlebar steering.

Comparing the Interior of the New Xpander Cross and the All New BR-V

 After discussing the exterior design, the next comparison of the New Xpander Cross and the All New BR-V continues to the interior. The two products made by Mitsubishi and Honda compete in a fairly similar segment, namely a low SUV with the ability to seat three rows or seven passengers.

Comparing the Interior of the New Xpander Cross and the All New BR-V

The Luxury Side of the Xpander Cross

This approach to luxury is the common thread for Xpander Cross. Following the update on its twin brother MPV Xpander, the changes to the Xpander Cross are closer to the comfort side and don't forget the premium side of this product.

The dashboard, for example, now uses the latest design, a horizontal axis design that is equipped with soft pad material in several parts. This dashboard design makes the interior look more modern with firm lines and a combination of bright color touches on the AC grille to give a modern impression.

With the status of an update, some of the details of changes to this model are in the meter cluster section with an 8-inch LCD screen and a steering wheel that resembles the Pajero Sport. This steering wheel also features setting buttons on the left and right for audio, cruise control features, telephone connections and menu access. The leather-wrapped steering wheel can also be adjusted with a telescopic tilt for easy driving comfort.

Move to the middle. There is an AC setting with a digital touch with a physical button that makes it easy to operate. This air conditioner also uses a micron filter for cleaner air circulation. For convenience, there is now wireless charging at the bottom of the center console.

Another major concern is the 9-inch touch screen head unit with a floating model. This makes the modern simple impression on the Xpander Cross dashboard even more assertive. In addition, the ability of this head unit is diverse, it can connect with mobile phones via Android Auto and Apple Carplay and displays a 360-degree camera feature that is already installed in the vehicle. Another comfort comes from the use of synthetic leather which has a heat guard feature with two tone black and navy blue coloring. This makes the experience of sitting in the seat comfortable and avoids the heat. Mitsubishi also provides detailed stitching in the center of the seat.

Xpander Cross has established itself as a family vehicle. This is also felt by the abundance of storage space throughout the cabin. Storage space is present behind the first row seats, at the bottom of the trunk, arm rest with cup holders, floor console on the first row armrests, side pockets on the instrument panel aka the passenger and driver knees and don't forget storage in the door trim area as well as the dashboard. Charging is also a perceived convenience. In addition to wireless charging on the center console, there are also USB ports in the first and second rows and a power socket for easy charging.

Mitsubishi also explained the ease of setting up seat configurations in all rows of vehicles. This makes the need for space during driving can be maximized. For example, for luggage, you can fold the second or third row seats.

All New BR-V, SUV Value

Moving on to the latest BR-V. Honda uses three core values in its BR-V interior design approach. The first is a value SUV that comes with a modern interior design with the use of quality materials. This is to show strong character and comfort. Next is the MPV value that comes from the spacious interior and the many utilities for the family vehicle lifestyle. Lastly is driving pleasure. This is obtained from the comfort offered in the interior of the latest BR-V.

The firm design in the cockpit area provides a more private space for the driver which also affects the focus of driving. The center console design is further raised to emphasize the separation between the driver and passenger compartments. This makes the driving experience more comfortable and enjoyable.

Regarding the modern touch, the latest BR-V uses a 4.2-inch TFT screen cluster meter. This screen displays various information such as fuel consumption, trip gauge, outside temperature and clock in a wide screen display. Through this screen, the driver can also set the unit of measurement, keyless access, lighting, door and window operations as well as the Honda Sensing feature in the top variant.

The main concern comes to the 7-inch head unit. This device can provide various features such as radio, audio video, hands free telephone and connection to the user's smartphone. The entertainment side comes from six speakers scattered throughout the cabin. In addition, this head unit is also a place to display the Honda LaneWatch display and rear camera when parking.

The MPV side of the BR-V comes from the abundance of storage or utility space throughout the cabin. There is an armrest console in the center of the first row for driving comfort. There is a storage space to store small items such as wallets and others. A cup holder is present in the center of the console and eight water bottle holders are scattered throughout the cabin. Storage compartments are also present in several pockets behind the front seats.

For the seat configuration, the third seat can be folded 50/50 dive down which creates more luggage space. Luggage space can also be adjusted and increased by moving the board to a lower position. Personal items can be stored at the bottom of the board in the upper position even when the third row seats are used.

The comfort side is given to the leather interior lining that is present on the armrests and door sides. Armrests on the second row seats are also present to provide comfort for rear passengers.

Regarding charging, the latest BR-V provides ports in several places. First in the console area, then in the second row seats and also the third row. All of them can be connected to 12 V devices, not to mention USB A or C ports. The All New BR-V comes in three interior color combinations. There are gray and black for a sporty look, gray and mocha gray for an elegant look. Finally, there are silver and black for a premium and smart look.

That was the brief comparison of the interior of the New Xpander Cross and the All New BR-V. Each of them provides a different approach which of course just depends on the tastes of potential consumers and also the availability of available funds.
