Yamaha Motor Philippines (YMPH) expands its Mio lineup of motorcycles with the addition of its fifth model, the Mio Gravis.
The new Mio Gravis hopes to complement the current selection of Mio i125, Mio Sporty, Mio Soul i125, and Mio Aerox 155 with its unique matte look and more rugged styling. Quite appropriately, it comes with the tagline, “Be whoever you want to be.”
The Mio Gravis features a one-piece wide headlamp with integrated position lights. Turn signals are mounted lower on the body. Behind is a one-piece rear taillamp.
Powered it is a 125cc four-stroke, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine. It has both electric and manual start functions. Its new Smart Motor Generator ensures quieter starts and smoother operation.
It rolls on 12-inch wheels with wide tubeless tires ensuring better grip and stability even on rough roads. A telescopic fork in front and single sided shock and swing arm keep the bumps at bay.
For storing items, it boasts of a large 25 liter storage space under the seat.
Of course, to differentiate from the other Mio models, it comes with a number of unique features. For one, the Mio Gravis already comes with a 12-volt power socket as standard allowing riders to charge their phone while on the go. It also comes with a hazard lamp switch as standard.
Its fuel cap and underseat compartment are now opened by buttons just beside the ignition switch making for easier access. Another feature on the front shield is an accessory hook. Refueling has also been made easier with a side fuel refill, mounted just behind the front shield — no more reaching for the floor or opening the seat.
All vital info is displayed on the fully-digital speedometer. It includes an odometer, fuel economy indicator and battery voltage meter.
If for the Mio i125, Yamaha has tapped Asia’s Next Top Model winner, Maureen Wroblewitz; for the Mio Sporty, YouTube sensation, TJ Monteverde; for the Mio Soul i125, gamer and cosplayer, Alodia Gosienfiao; for the Mio Gravis, serving as its endorser will be journalist, Atom Araullo.
The Yamaha Mio Gravis is available in three colors: Matte Black, Matte Green, and Matte Red. It’s now available at all Yamaha 3S dealerships at an SRP of P85,900.
