The 2012 Yamaha BW’s Naked is a modern scooter packed with a wide range of new technologies which help it compete with success against its rivals.

The bike is wrapped in a pretty unique skin which gives it a fancy look. We especially like the retro style used for the front fascia and the creative paint scheme. With uncovered handlebars and stripped styling, the scooter is ready to undertake any kind of road you venture into.
