After successfully with the previous model of Yamaha Exciter type, Yamaha now presented the new 2012 Yamaha Exciter series, 2012 Yamaha Exciter R and also 2012 Yamaha Exciter RC edition, both of Yamaha Exciter 2012 series looks almost the same and I can't found many different things, but you can see that the colors scheme and decals of the bikes are different. Yamaha motorcycles not only selling this bike in one place, Yamaha Exciter also already in many country such as in Thailand with Yamaha Spark 135 named, also Yamaha Jupiter MX in Indonesia, all bikes uses the same specs but the colors schemes are different. Today let see the new looks of Yamaha Exciter 2012 edition, it has comes from Yamaha Vietnam official website.
2012 Yamaha Exciter R & RC edition has been born with the same engine specs, almost 135cc of engine capacity (134.4cc actually), 4-stroke, SOCH, 4-valve, and single cylinder engine, but the Exciter RC edition has better performance with 9.21kW (12.5PS) @8500 rpm while the Exciter R produces 8.9kW (12.1PS) @8500 rpm, not so different but RC series is better.
If we try to compare the Yamaha Exciter with Jupiter MX (for Indonesia market place), Jupiter MX reportedly already with manual clutch edition, so I thing the 2012 Yamaha Exciter RC edition uses the manual clutch edition while the Exciter R uses the automatic clutch, correct Me if I was wrong. The RC edition comes with better performance, but the specs of this bike is almost 100% same, so I thing the manual clutch on the Exciter RC is the main features for boost Exciter performance.

Exciter R : 40.000.000 (VNĐ)
Exciter RC : 37.000.000 (VNĐ)
