2010 Yamaha C3 Review


The 2010 Yamaha C3 is manufactured in Japan and was first introduced in 2007. One of the main features of the C3 is the front drum brakes that help stop the bike safely on demand. It is also equipped with a 49cc, single-cylinder engine and an impressive transmission.

The 2010 Yamaha C3 constitutes a simple box design which emphasizes space. It has a retro look and feel that is designed for individual customization. The main features include the motorcycle-style fork and handlebar and large tires on cast aluminum wheels. The handlebar can be easily replaced for a different style. There is a side-hinged storage compartment which can support about nine gallons of gear. It is ideal for storing backpacks, groceries, and any other items you might need to carry. The seat is wide, spacious and comfortable and only 28.9 inches from the ground. The funky instrument display presents a speedometer, fuel gauge, high-beam indicator light, odometer, and engine management indicator lights.

The Yamaha C3 is a very economical vehicle to operate as it runs on a fuel-injected engine and is equipped with purely modern running gear. The 19mm Mikuni® throttle body offers optimal mixture in all situations as well as easy cold starts. The liquid-cooled, three-valve, four-stroke engine is powerful and ensures low maintenance of the vehicle. You will also find amazing traction due to the 120/90-10 front and rear tires.

The C3 also consists of a big diameter steel tub which contributes to easy handling and strength. A fully automatic V-belt transmission and pushbutton electric starting allows for convenient operation. The air-induction system and impressive exhaust catalyst technology lead to minimal air pollution. The 0.25cc engine fuel economy of 115 mpg ensures a smooth drive. The front suspension type is a telescopic fork and the rear suspension type is a twin sided swing arm.
