Novou Fi 2015 does not have many changes in the engine, however the car has been refreshed quite a bit in terms of design along with many modern and convenient features also equipped. Another new point in this version is the reduction in selling price compared to the previous version from 800 to 2 million VND.

Design

Maintaining the strong sporty design that has been a tradition on Yamaha vehicles, the 2015 Nouvo Fi also has a number of changes to help the vehicle become more youthful and eye-catching. Overall, the car looks more balanced and compact than the previous version.

The front of the car has many changes that can be easily recognized. The completely redesigned headlight cluster takes inspiration from high-end sports lines, giving the front of the car an impressive look. The halogen lamp set at the bottom is used for long beam, the projector lamp used for near beam is placed above. The rear of the car is uniquely designed thanks to the turn signals attached to two wings running along the side of the car, creating a neat and sturdy appearance.

The central clock cluster is still a combination of a traditional analog clock and an LCD electronic screen but has been refreshed in some details compared to the previous generation. LED lights are integrated to illuminate the watch face, new watch bezel, high beam mode indicator light, and the engine check light is circular instead of triangular like before.

Nouvo Fi 2015 has a convenient multi-function lock. The function of opening the lock shield is especially convenient when both of the user’s hands are busy carrying things. The mechanism for closing the lock shield has also been changed from button press to lock rotation. In addition, the lock is also equipped with a glowing LED light to help users easily insert the lock into the lock.

Storage space is also one of the details that consumers are most interested in when choosing a car. On the 2015 generation, Nouvo still has 2 storage areas, 2 small storage areas located on the front of the car that can store some small personal items such as gloves, goggles, etc. The main trunk is located below the seat. The vehicle can accommodate 2 half-head helmets. The saddle was also divided into two separate parts by the designers for the driver and the passenger.

Yamaha Nouvo Fi 2015 is equipped with 16-inch rims with 5 spokes painted black on all versions. Comes with a set of tubeless tires sized 70/90 for the front wheel and 90/80 for the rear wheel. Safety equipment has not changed, it is still piston disc brakes at the front and drums at the rear. Along with that, the rear wheel is fitted with a fender that looks very sporty.

Engine

Nouvo Fi 2015 still uses a DiASil insulated single-cylinder engine, 124cc, 4-stroke, electronic fuel injection, and liquid-cooled. The car has a capacity of 10.4 horsepower, maximum torque of 10.5 Nm, and a continuously variable transmission transmitted by belt. Nouvo is inherently a strong sports car line for men, so Yamaha did not replace the DiASil engine with the new Bluecore engine.
