WMOTO launched the Wmoto Xtreme 150i scooter on Sunday and the scooter has been given a five-star rating through the Motorcycle Assessment Program in Malaysia (MyMAP).
MyMAP also recognises the scooter as the safest motorcycle, thanks to its Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS).
This recognition was done by the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) in collaboration with the Malaysian Institute of Automotive, Robotics, and IoT (MARii).
MIROS states that the MyMap star rating is based on the evaluation of four key features: compliance with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, conformity of production (COP), safety feature technology and support programs and Xtreme 150i successfully met all required features.
Complying with Euro 4 emission standards, this scooter is powered by a single cylinder, single-camshaft, four-stroke engine complemented by a liquid cooling system.
With an engine displacement of 149.3cc, the 143kg scooter produces a maximum power of 12.1hp at 8,500rpm and a maximum torque of 11.8Nm at 5,000rpm.
All its lights are LEDs and the headlamps are matched with spanner-shaped daytime running lights (DRL).
