2011 Yamaha Jupiter MX (135LC) Side View
Indonesians got to see the all new 2011 Yamaha Jupiter MX (135LC) launched at the 2010 Jakarta Motorcycle Show.
Jupiter MX is as good as what we have been expected with features includes rear disc brake as standard, 5-speed transmission and new radical design.
What Yamaha Indonesia surprise us is the usage of wide front and rear rim that is 2.00 x 17″ for front wheel (or is it 2.10 x 17″ as the technical specification suggested?) and 2.50 x 17″ for rear wheel. Wider tyre give better ride and handling with great improvement on cornering. The rear wheel also got improvement in the chain tensioning department whereby it is now replaced with a new version just like the Yamaha FZ-150i (Vixion).
Also, it got 25mm carburetor (previous was at 22mm)! That is just 1mm less than The Boss (Yamaha RX-Z 135 2-stroke) at 26mm Mikuni VM.
Power figures are up to 12,52 Ps @ 8.500 rpm for the new Jupiter MX (previous is at 11.49ps/8500rpm) and 1,24 kgf.m torque @ 6.000 rpm (previous is at 1.19 kgf.m torque @ 6.000rpm).
Check out the previous model technical specification here and compared it yourself for better view on the improvement areas.
