With the new high-wheel Xenter 125, getting round town is a pleasure. Every aspect of this scooter has been designed to make your commute more rapid and more comfortable.

A punchy 125cc engine lets you accelerate past busy inner-city traffic. This is combined with agile, easy handling, delivered by an innovative new engine-mounting system and motorcycle-style monocross suspension.

Everything about the Xenter 125 is easy - from the ultra-spacious flat footboard and easy-to-push design, to the confident, stable braking provided by the Unified Braking System. Completed by a sleek, modern design, and economical fuel consumption, it’s an accessible yet powerful way through town.

Smooth, rapid progress through the busy streets of your town, in total comfort. It’s what the Xenter 125 is designed for.

An engine with sophisticated anti-vibration technology allows a new kind of frame mount. Combined with the monocross suspension used on Yamaha’s TMAX, this delivers an exceptionally smooth ride over bumpy, cobbled roads, or when riding in tandem. This set-up also produces an agile, responsive handling sensation, more like a bike than a scooter.

Added convenience comes via a spacious flat footboard, easy-to-wheel design, and integrated rear carrier. One ride and you’ll see how the Xenter 125 makes urban life easier.

Designed to combine beauty and practicality in one unit, the Xenter has a smooth, modern appearance, with soft, rhythmic curves. The addition of twin headlights adds a distinctive Yamaha touch. The tail light uses LED technology – producing a brighter, tougher and longer-lasting light than a traditional lamp.

Monocross rear suspension

The Xenter 125 has a rear monocross type suspension, as used in Yamaha’s TMAX. This centralizes mass for a more balanced, confident ride, and allows for a more compact chassis design. This produces a comfortable ride even on the bumpiest city streets with lively, agile performance. And all this is complemented by a front fork suspension.

Unified Braking System

The Xenter 125’s high, stable wheels are brought to a controlled stop by a large 267mm front disc brake and 150mm rear drum brake. Furthermore, the Xenter 125 is equipped with Yamaha’s Unified Brake System, which balances out the unequal pressure to front and back wheels, for strong and confident stopping in any situation.

The modern, refined 125cc engine offers the rapid acceleration you need to escape urban traffic. Fuel injection means smooth driveability at any speed, reliable starting, excellent performance in all weather, and efficient, cleaner running. An innovative single-shaft balancer reduces engine vibration, for a smooth, comfortable ride.

Spacious and practical
