Yamaha has announced the launch of the new D'elight scooter which is one of the lightest models in its category.

One of Europe's leading scooter brands, Yamaha has described the 98kg scooter as an "attractive, compact and affordable retro-style model".

It fits into the 125-class engine segment, which makes up around 60% of the European scooter market.

Yamaha has designed the retro-style scooter with the intention of targeting urban commuters who want a cheap and easy way to travel.

The D'elight is powered by a fuel-efficient four-stroke engine and has 12-inch alloy wheels.

The tyres are economical to replace and help towards the scooter's low maintenance costs.

To cater towards urban commuters, the scooter has a maximum torque of 7.7Nm, which means it has good acceleration, making it ideal for stop-start riding at traffic lights and junctions.

The light, compact design also ensures it has good agility and is easy to use.

The engine is force-fed cool air whenever it is running, which is a lighter alternative to a liquid-cooled engine, helping to make it more lightweight.

Other key features include integrated tail-light and rear indicators and also a small glove box in the knee panel area.

It also includes a helmet hook, and a flip-out footrest if there is a passenger.

The low seat has a height of around 755mm which allows for easy manoeuvrability and low-speed riding.

The styling has a classic/modern blend, with a 60s influence in the design, such as its high front fender and colour co-ordinated grab rail.

The D'elight is available in three different colours - Milky White, Midnight Black and Magnetic Bronze.

This scooter comes with a recommended retail price of £1799 and will be available in dealers from August.
