The new Yamaha Libero
MOTOR CYCLING in Japan is not more than 50 years old and yet the Japanese are giving a run for their money to the pioneers in this field the European and U.S. bike manufacturers.
Yamaha is not a new name in the Indian two-wheeler industry. But after the buyout of its Indian partner Escorts a year ago, it is now coming out with new products. It now comes with a wide range of products and wishes to capture a larger share of the market.
Yamaha Motor India expanded its product range by unveiling the new international look Libero in Delhi recently. The launch and the expansion of Yamaha network mark an aggressive initiative of the company to further strengthen its strong hold on the Delhi market.
An amalgamation of international style, cutting edge technology, fuel efficiency and power delivery, the new look Libero comes with stylised graphics. This bike in three exciting colours oriental gold, electric silver and deep blue is not only packed with all the elements that spell Yamaha perfection but is also designed to accentuate the brand image by giving it a distinctive look. With this launch, Yamaha Motors India aims to create a distinct space for itself in the 100 cc deluxe category by creating new benchmarks.
The new Libero delivers "king size'' on the crucial parameters of performance, style, comfort and economy. Powered by a 106 cc, 4 stroke, air-cooled SOHC Advantech engine that delivers optimum power and excellent mileage and smooth gearshift, the Libero is also equipped with a state-of-the-art, double optimised carburettor for enhanced fuel efficiency and special air scoops that direct the air flow to the engine and keep it cool. The "king size'' Yamaha also comes with an extra large fuel tank, higher ground clearance and larger wheel base. These features not only make it stand apart from other bikes in its category but offer some unique benefits as well. The extra large fuel tank enables the rider to travel long distances without nagging stops for re-fuelling. T
he higher ground clearance translates into a comfortable ride even on rough and bumpy roads, while the larger wheelbase means a better road grip and manoeuvrability.
For "king size" comfort, the bike comes with a special saddle at a 5-degree incline for a comfortable riding posture and a sturdy suspension system that ensures a ride free of jerks and jolts. The lockable pillion footrest that remains noise free even when the bike is in motion is another feature.
For enhanced visibility during night and in rough weathers, the Libero, priced at Rs. 42,849 (ex-showroom Delhi), comes with an extra bright headlamp with multi-reflector, a special backlight and stylish indicators.
