    “The PG-1 will empower the spirit of breaking free and push every motorcycle rider to leave all the reasons that hold them back from exploring. This motorcycle enables every rider to have an authentic connection with nature where real exploration awaits,” YMPH shared in a statement.

    While YMPH has yet to share the full details of the upcoming moped offering, below are its possible specifications, as seen in its counterpart in neighboring country Thailand.

    PG-1 YMTH

    The Thai-spec Yamaha PG-1 stands 1,980 millimeters (mm) long; 805 mm wide; and 1,050 mm tall — with a 795-mm seat heat height and 1,280-mm wheelbase and turning radius of up to 2,000 mm. Its overall weight is only 107 kilograms (which includes 5.1 liters of gasoline and lubricating oil).

    Absorbing the bumps on the road are the telescopic suspension in the front and swing arm-type for the rear as well as the 16-inch wheels wrapped in 90/100-16 M/C 51P tires.

    Powering the Yamaha PG-1 is a four-stroke, single cylinder, two-valve, air-cooled gasoline engine mated to a four-speed transmission while its stopping power comes from the combination of disc and drum brakes for the front and rear, respectively.

    In the Land of Smiles, the motorcycle is retailed for THB64,900 (around P103,000), so expect a bump in the pricing for the Philippine market.

    Further, the Yamaha PG-1 in Thailand are offered in four body colors namely Chill Blue, Humming Brown, Vivid Yellow, and Cool Black.
