Yamaha has hit the sweet spot in the market with the Mio Aerox. A couple of years of massive success for the best selling scooter has ushered in a new model bearing some notable updates. Consisting mostly of aesthetic and functional improvements, the new Mio Aerox is now better than ever and presents itself as an even stronger contender in the 150 cc scooter market.
Launched in the Indonesian market, the new Aerox features larger LED headlights, giving the scooter an all-new front fascia. On top of that, the front fairing has been redesigned to give a more premium and sporty look. Moving towards the rear of the scooter, a restyled LED tail light enhances the scooter’s style even further.
Aesthetics aside, the new Aerox sports a new fully-digital instrument cluster. Bearing slightly larger dimensions than that of the outgoing model, the new instrument panel features a real-time fuel consumption gauge, as well as an integrated toggle switch on the left handlebar for navigating through the simple, yet comprehensive display. The new scooter now comes standard with hazard lights, toggled with a switch found on the right handlebar. The well-loved features of the Yamaha Mio Aerox such as the keyless start system, as well as the integrated power socket for charging your devices.
As far as practical amenities are concerned, the Aerox remains plenty convenient with 25 liters of storage space under the seat. For the Indonesian market, the scooter comes with Yamaha’s Y-Connect system which lets the rider connect his or her smartphone to the scooter's digital display to be able to remain connected regardless of where they go. It remains uncertain whether or not the locally released version of the Aerox will come with the Y-Connect system.
Powering the 2021 Yamaha Mio Aerox is the same 155 cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine with Yamaha’s Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) technology. This is the same engine that is found in the majority of Yamaha’s 150 cc bikes in the market and has proven itself to be efficient, reliable, and adequately powerful. The outgoing Yamaha Mio Aerox has a sticker price of P102,900 for the base model and goes all the way up to P124,900 for the top of the line model.
