You see a lot of strange concepts displayed at the Tokyo Motor Show, but this one caught our eye. There is something charming/retro about this ultra lightweight, air cooled single from Yamaha. Although Yamaha isn’t saying, it doesn’t look like this machine could weigh more than 150 pounds. The tire sizes look like they come from a mountain bike/beach cruiser bicycle, so one would have to wonder how they would hold up to even semi-aggressive cornering. Nevertheless, if you value simplicity, this is an attractive concept.
Here is the sum total of what Yamaha has had to say about the Y125 MOEGI prior to the show:
This concept model is a fresh embodiment of Yamaha design philosophy that combines the familiar look and feel of a bicycle in a motorcycle. Mounting a world standard 125cc class engine on a slim, lightweight frame, this model is designed to offer good fuel economy with an easy and enjoyable ride. Besides its appeal as a personal vehicle for daily commuting, it sports an active image that will lure owners on longer jaunts on the weekends.
