Inspired by the BMW R 1250 GS and featuring off-road bits, meet the Yamasaki Fatty

Yamasaki Fatty

Chinese automotive manufacturers tend to make vehicles that are heavily inspired by popular models from established international manufacturers. As a result, sometimes these Chinese two-wheelers are exact replicas, while other times they turn out to be a botched up job.

Well, what we have here for you today seems to be inspired by BMW’s Adventure range of motorcycles, however, these design cues are applied onto a 150cc scooter. Confused? Here’s a closer look at the Yamasaki Fatty. 

Yamasaki Fatty

At first glance, the Fatty would easily pass on as a BMW adventure scooter prototype. That is until you look at the faux air vent inserts all around the scooter’s bodywork, along with other such rough design aspects. The BMW R 1250 GS inspired LED headlight of the scooter features the scooter's name prominently etched across the larger light.

The Fatty is available in air-cooled 125cc, 150cc and 175cc engine options, with the 125cc engine producing 8.5PS. This power output is healthy considering the Fatty weighs only 108kg.  Underpinnings of this scooter include a telescopic fork with gaiters at the front, while the rear features gas-charged twin shock absorbers.

Helping the Fatty slow down are a front petal disc and rear drum brake, however it doesn’t appear that this scooter gets any braking aids like ABS or combination braking system. This scooter gets 12-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 120/70 section tyres at both ends. 

Like a typical Chinese two-wheeler, the Fatty too doesn’t fare well in the features department, as it comes equipped only with a analogue speedometer, with a small digital insert, presumably to provide fuel level indication. It gets a decent 6.2 litre fuel tank.

Price for the Yamasaki Fatty is not known, as it is currently on sale only on their wholesale online channel for USD 800 (around Rs 63,000) for a bulk order of above 30 units. This price can vary depending on the engine option. 

If you’re looking for an adventure focussed scooter in India, you can check out the Yamaha RayZR 125 Street Rally. Else, you can also opt for a sporty scooter like the TVS NTorq 125, and convert it into a hardcore off-roader. Check out our exclusive story to know how.
