Yamaha enters 150cc class in the US
 
Yamaha has entered the 150cc class in the states. The leisurely and reliable Vino 125 has been around for years but the XC 155 looks to be far more performance oriented and is wrapped in less traditional body panels. It should give the Honda PCX 150 plenty of healthy competition with a four valve, fuel injected engine. I like the naked handlebars.

I hope one of these show up at CON this coming June.
It also seems to me the big names in scooters are listening to the boards, maybe.
The Honda Forza, is now coming stock with way more performance built in, as it should be. I follow BRed's posts at TR. He removed all the covers and wow what a well made ride.
That is a nice looking Yamaha.

Recent new models from most companies have been in the 200cc range. Yamaha must feel that this 155cc scoot can compete with them. The Yami Vino 125 is a cool scoot, but this XC155 looks to be far more fun to ride.
