Hong Leong Yamaha Motor Sdn Bhd (HLYM) is excited to launch the highly anticipated limited edition 2023 ‘Tech Art’ DOXOU Yamaha Y16ZR. This exceptional model is a perfect combination of innovation, style, and functionality, with meticulous attention to detail. With only 5,000 units available, customers have the rare opportunity to own a piece of exclusive motorcycling technology. The name DOXOU, derived from the Japanese word “DOKUSOU,” which means ‘being creative and ahead of others,’ perfectly captures the essence of this exceptional model. With cutting-edge technology and innovative design, the DOXOU Yamaha Y16ZR showcases a sophisticated and avant-garde aesthetic that is sure to turn heads on the road.
The limited-edition ‘Tech Art’ DOXOU Yamaha Y16ZR boasts a modern, state-of-the-art livery, with new cyan-coloured sports rims on both front and rear wheels that accentuate the already sporty-looking bike. New owners will also receive a limited edition Y16ZR Sports Fender, a memorable Y16ZR emblem with bike production number, and a special ‘Thank-You’ certificate as an appreciation of their purchase.
The DOXOU Yamaha Y16ZR features various innovative features, equipped with a powerful liquid-cooled 4-stroke, 4-valve, SOHC 155cc engine with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA). The engine is linked to a new 6-speed gearbox that produces different ignition mappings for each gear, capable of generating a maximum power of 13.2 kW @ 9,500 rpm, and top torque of 14.4 Nm @ 8,000 rpm. The Assist and Slipper Clutch system helps reduce clutch lever load, making it easier to change gears during downshifting. The Clutch Lever Handle is designed 10mm shorter compared to that on the Yamaha Y15ZR, providing riders with a much easier grip when changing gears for a more comfortable ride.
Dato’ Dr. Jim Khor Mun Wei, the Group Managing Director of Hong Leong Industries Berhad, expressed that their aim is to ensure customers experience the highest level of satisfaction while riding their motorcycles. The limited edition 2023 DOXOU Yamaha Y16ZR is a testament to HLYM’s commitment to excellence and passion for creating exceptional motorcycling experiences for their customers. They hope customers do not miss out on this chance to own a truly unique and exceptional motorcycle.
The new 2023 DOXOU Yamaha Y16ZR will be available at all authorized Yamaha dealers nationwide from 8th May 2023 onwards and is priced at a recommended retail price (RRP) of RM11,818.00, excluding registration fees and insurance coverage.
