Updated for 2019 and into 2020 for Malaysia is the 2019 Yamaha Ego Avantiz, at a recommended retail price of RM5,536, excluding road tax, insurance and registration. Expected to arrive in Hong Leong Yamaha dealers this month, the 2o19 Ego Avantiz can be purchased in Red, Blue, Cyan and Matte Grey.
Power for the Ego Avantiz comes from a single-cylinder, air-cooled SOHC mill that puts out a claimed 9.3 hp at 8,000 rpm and 9.8 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. As is normal in scooters of this class, a CVT gearbox and belt drive transmits power to the rear wheel.
Seat height is a very manageable 773 mm with the step through design making the Ego Avantiz accessible to any rider, while weight is listed at 96 kg. With 4.2-litres of fuel in the tank and 14-litres of under seat storage space, the Ego Avantiz is designed for commuting and urban transport.
Along with a parking brake incorporated into the front brake lever, the Ego Avantiz uses a single hydraulic disc brake in front and drum brake at the back for stopping. Suspension is done with conventional telescopic forks in front and single shock absorber at the back.
