The Resonator125 is a concept model that proposes a lifestyle with an authentic sport bike for young people who have not yet discovered the joys of motorcycling. With a lightweight, slim and compact chassis and an instrument panel assembly using an innovative device, this model melds elements of the near future with the nostalgic for a new fusion of motorcycle eras. It also sports wood panels on the fuel tank and seat cowl with authentic wood grain material used in guitars and engravings on the muffler, fuel tank cap and more done with same intricate techniques used for brass wind instruments. The result is a motorcycle that seeks to inspire young people with concepts and qualities that only the Yamaha brand can deliver.
It has got all the right ingredients. It sports minimal bodywork, tall, slightly pulled-back handlebars, wire-spoke rims with disc brakes front and back, a round headlight, and is based on a new, lightweight chassis. The fuel tank and seat cowl feature the sort of wood panels you'll find on Yamaha's guitars and engravings on brass plating similar to that found on wind instruments. If you look closely, you will also see a unique tablet-like instrument panel, and a camera placed on top of the headlight. Yamaha says this bike is "for young people who have not yet discovered the joys of motorcycling", so it needs to have these modern-day gadgets on board to entice the youth. If you peel away all the modern day motor show gimmicks, you will find a motorcycle that is exactly the kind of thing that can be badged as an RX. It is small, compact and feather-like.
The Resonator125 can't come close to being the sort of hooligan the original RX was with its fiery two-stroke motor which provided blistering acceleration. Powering the concept is an air-cooled, four-stroke, 125cc single-cylinder motor, but that is all we have in the way of technical details for now. We wish Yamaha blesses it with a zippier powerplant, so we can finally have the new-gen RX we've all looked forward to. As officials of the company have stated earlier, the motorcycle is to debut at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show which is held in October. As far as the concept image suggests, that the motorcycle is a machine created to be a successor of the RX, which was a great success in the market upon its launch. Observing the current and past years of Yamaha, there hasn’t quite been a ‘Retro’ styled bike launched by the company. At the first look, the bike is impressive with more insights to be revealed upon its debut can help those Retro passion riders to choose whether to buy or no to!
The Resonator125 concept provides perfect design template for a modern day ‘Retro’ Indian motorcycle.
