On February 2008, the Yamaha Motor Company in Thailand and Vietnam has launched an all new version, the Yamaha Nouvo Elegance (LX in Vietnam) for their markets under the model code “AT135.” Major changes in this motorcycle are the engine, with the engine power increased from 115cc to 135cc (11 horsepower). In addition, the engine cylinder and forged piston are now made from DiASil (die-cast aluminum cylinder), making it more lightweight and giving it better power-to-weight ratio, to eliminate engine overheating on long journeys. The new model is also water-cooled, indicated by the addition of a radiator, installed at the right side of the engine, giving it more performance and reliability. Cosmetic changes includes the body cover: sharper edges were added with larger seat for a comfortable ride. The Nouvo Elegance was also launched in Malaysia on August 2008 as the Yamaha Nouvo LC.Literally, the word Nouvo is from the French word Nouveau, which means new or fashionable.
