Blending matt and gloss shades, the lines of the Satelis have been softened and all plastic surfaces are UV-treated for a long lasting finish. The dual material seat adds to the classy appearance. At its heart is an all-new LFE (Low Friction Efficiency) 125cc engine; 50% quieter than the previous generation it emits just 65g of CO2/km and is remarkably fuel efficient, consuming just 3.6/100km (78.5mpg).
Combining a steel dual cradle chassis with 37mm front forks and equipped with Michelin Pilot SC tyres, the Satelis is stable at speed, while its exceptional turning circle of 86° makes it agile around town too.
LED lights surround both front and rear light clusters for daytime visibility and the powerful twin 55w headlights increase the beam density by 35%.
The 450mm screen and wide ’apron’ at the front protects the rider from the worst of the weather and there’s a handy lockable glove compartment to carry items that need to be kept handy. Beneath the spacious seat is a a storage bay, with capacity increased by 12% so that will accept two full face helmets. There’s even an internal light so you can find your luggage in the dark.
