Car tech gets into the motorcycle world with the start/stop technology on the Janus.
Yamaha has introduced a fuel-saving stop/start system on its new Janus scooter, a 125cc, slightly retro scooter weighing 97 kg (214 lbs) and targeted at female riders in the Vietnamese market, where a massive 2.85 million motorcycles and scooters are sold per year.
The fuel-saving feature will roll out on the Deluxe and also on Premium models, but not the Standard. In addition, the Premium model also gets a smart key.
Moreover, the pricing for the Standard is around 27.5 million Vietnamese Dong, or a little over US$1200.
