A few days ago and also until right now, the topic of new Vixion 150 motorcycle from Yamaha is being hotly discussed, after along long times never getting a significant changes, Yamaha Indonesia finally gives many ultimately changes and total new appearance to the new Vixion, not only just the color and new tagline changes, but it gives a lot of Yamaha Vixion plus points including some parts.

Almost touching the word "perfect", I said like that because this motorcycle now appear more modern and looks more elegant, deficiencies have been repaired. There are many things that I love from the New Vixion, including the use of larger tires, followed by a wider wheels, rear disc brake, new ignition position, new rear brake lights, and also completed with new gas tank. All of that makes the new Vixion 150 looks perfect, but there is new thing from new gen of Vixion that I don't like, that is the design of new headlmap which it look less than sporty looks.

New Vixion Headlamp, not so good huh? : image from

Lets look closer, all parts of new Vixion been perfect, but the headlights look less than sporty style, Yamaha should better give a sharper headlights like the earlier Vixion headlight/ 2nd gen of Vixion (the first generation Vixion using the round headlights). Oh yeah I have to tell you that Yamaha also need to give a new engine cover to make this bike perfect.

That's all, the good thing from the all new 2013 Vixion are :

New Features :

- New rear disc brake
- New large tires
- New digital display
- New Fuel-Tank design
- New Ignition position
- New Headlamp
- New muffler
- New prices, etc.

Good works !! congratulation for the Yamaha, we hope the next Vixion will available with new sharp headlamp and also new engine cover, have a nice day.
