Minarelli engine is a development company to an Italian motorcycle, then since 1995 is yamaha engine supplier in Spain. For this model applied to smaller machines with only 125 cc use Keihin carburetor CVEK 30 did not like the V-Ixion who use injection 150 cc. Unfortunately the Italian policy requires to remove the name of the origin country of production, so the name of Indonesia does not appear in the block machine.
One side, interesting is why this motor could use the same engine with a Yamaha V-Ixion? and it turns out this machine is the result of the development of motor Minarelli which since 2002 has officially become a subsidiary of Yamaha. So do not be surprised if this machine can be used many brands in Europe. wow,,,, V-Ixion is cool, how about you? please comment
