Yamaha scooters hit the road

From Yamaha Motor Canada

TORONTO, ON – Wednesday marked the release of Yamaha’s all-new 2012 BW’s 50 scooter. Already the best selling scooter in Canada, thanks to its sporty performance and styling, the 2012 version allows riders to go that extra mile, literally, with a new, fuel injected, four-stroke 49cc engine (prior BW’s housed a two-stroke powerplant).

Setting a new standard for fun and practicality, the new BW’s couldn’t have come at a better time, as fuel prices are at an all-time high. 

“Ask anyone who has ridden a scooter and they’ll tell you how much fun they are to ride," said John Bayliss, Yamaha Motor Canada’s Motorcycle Product Manager. “But the new BW’s 50 offer more than a good time on two wheels; it produces less emissions, has a smoother engine response, is quieter, and for about $6 worth of fuel — at today’s gas prices — you can travel for 200km.”

Complementing its new four-stroke engine, the new BW’s also features liquid cooling for improved performance, a repositioned fuel cap for easier re-fueling, painted, wave-style brake rotor, a flashy new gauge system, and anti-theft locking system.

“Depending on the province you live in, you may not even require a motorcycle license before turning the throttle,” added Bayliss. “Plus, with no clutch or gears to change, they’re relatively easy to operate.”
