During the Gen Blu Carnival in MAEPS, Serdang, the previous month, Hong Leong Yamaha Motor (HLYM) launched two special Doxou editions of the Yamaha Y15ZR and the NVX 155. At the time, pricing was only announced for the Y15ZR Doxou, which was RM8,868 while the price for the 2019 Yamaha NVX 155 Doxou is now released, at RM10,688 excluding road tax, insurance and registration.
This compares against the price for the standard model NVX 155 at RM9,988. What sets the Doxou versions of the Y15ZR and NVX 155 apart is the use of Matte Blue as the main colour, complemented with side panels and front mudguard in Sakura Copper.
Adding a unique touch are the wheels in differing colours – black with blue stripes in front and light blue at the back. There is also striped graphics and the Doxou wording in the colour scheme but otherwise, the mechanicals are identical to the standard Y15ZR and NVX 155.
In the case of the Y15ZR, Yamaha claims the 150 cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, SOHC engine produces 15.4 PS at 8,500 rpm and 13.8 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm, mated to a five-speed gearbox. Meanwhile, the NVX 155 comes with a 155 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled mill pumps out 14.8 hp at 8,000 rpm and 14.4 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm, with power transmitted using a CVT gearbox.
Aside from Doxou two-wheelers, HLYM also launched a Doxou themed clothing and accessory line up for sale in Malaysia. Coming with a two-year or 20,000 km warranty, buyers of the 2019 Yamaha Y15ZR Doxou and Yamaha NVX 155 Doxou will receive a special gift that includes a pair of earphones, keychain and ownership certificate.
