ZONGSHEN YAMI 2022 UPGRADES
Zongshen Yami receives 2022 upgrades. The new Yami’s retro round meter has been added with gear and fuel level display. The headlamp uses LED lights, improving visibility by 73% and light intensity reaching 26,500CD.
In addition, the spoked aluminum alloy hubs are matched with high-quality vacuum tires, which greatly improves the overall riding quality. Although there are not too many major upgrades, the upgraded details improved convenience and riding comfort for users. The retail price of the 2022 Yami is 6,980 yuan.
The configuration improvements of Yami include 3 major upgrades + 4 small upgrades, a total of seven upgrades.
Major upgrade 1–Instrument:
The new Yami’s meter layout is basically the same as the old Yami’s — retro meters with backlit, but with additional fuel level and gear displays that are more beginner friendly.
Major upgrade 2–Hub:
The new Yami is equipped with 17-inch spoked aluminum hub vacuum tires. Like the previous spoked wheel hubs, the new aluminum wheel hub extends multiple spokes, maintaining a retro flavor while retaining the convenience of vacuum tire. A closer look shows that the wheels have undergone a layer of cutting processing, which is not a common thing on cubs of the same level.
Major upgrade 3–Engine Re-tuning:
The engine data are not different from the old model. It is the same C110-B engine. The maximum power is 5kW/8000rpm, the maximum torque is 6.9N.m/6000rpm, and the maximum speed reaches 80km/h. In addition, Zongshen announced that the C110-B engine has been re-tuned to optimize vibration and riding comfort for the new Yami.
The new YAMI has an upgraded headlight to achieve 26,500CD brightness and increase visibility by 73%. Simply put, they’re brighter, safer for nighttime riding.
The cushion has been widened and thickened while keeping the color scheme, providing a more comfortable ride experience. The passenger seat is still detachable, so it is suitable for seating two people or one people while carry goods.
The chrome-plated decorative parts are improved to be more delicate.
The front pedal was optimized to make the structure more of a human-machine design.
The new Yami maintains the same standard in other configurations as before. The paint is done at Zongshen’s robot coating plant. The paint thickness of exterior parts is up to 3mm, and the design durability is more than 8 years.
The overall retro elements are still outstanding, such as retro shock absorbers, rearview mirror, handlebar switches.
If you still like the old spoked wheels with inner tubes, Yami has two versions for you to choose: vacuum tire and spoked tire versions.
Owners of the old Yami can also purchase modification parts such as a meter with gear display and vacuum tires, and Zongshen offered a discount of 8.8% between April 20 and May 30.
The upgraded points on the new Yami are basically where previous users hope to improve, such as gear and fuel level information. Such upgrades are especially important for young riders. This will make the cub more competitive in the market. We hope domestic 125cc cubs will beat imported ones in the future.
