Technical description[edit]

Raised Handlebar, chrome plated pod type mirrors, 'V' grip Zapper tyres

Raised handlebar, long wheel-base, easy rider seating geometry, foot boards instead of foot pegs, fat rear tyre, single pod instrument chromesucker RV mirrors, and currently available in three colors: Gold (light yellow), Burgundy (reddish) and Black. Motive power comes from the same square, 54 mm x 54 mm bore x stroke, 123.7cc pot that powers the Yamaha YBX. While max. torque of 1.06 KgM at 6500 rpm is identical to the YBX, the 11 bhp (PS) of power in the Enticer engine comes at a slower 8000 rpm while in the YBX it comes at a higher 8500 rpm. Compression ratio of the Enticer is 10:1.

Wheelbase is 1375 mm with a claimed ground clearance of 140 mm. Kerb weight (with oil and full petrol tank) is 125 kg while dry weight is 116 kg. Fuel tank capacity is 13 liters with a reserve of 2.4 liters. The VM20SS, Ucal / Mikuni carburettor breathes thru a wet type air cleaner. Fuel is ignited by an NGK spark plug, model CR7HSA with ideal plug gap being 0.65 mm. Ignition is CDI.

Electricity is produced by a 12 volt flywheel magneto with a 12v-2.5 Ah lead acid battery. Headlight power is 12v-35w. Front tyre is a 4-ply rating 2.75 x 18 (Zapper FS pattern), while at the rear is a 6-ply rating 120/80 x 16, Y-pattern Zapper.

Engine oil specified is Yamalube 4-stroke motor oil (20W40 type SF) or equivalent. Yamaha also warns NOT to use oils that contain anti-friction modifiers or car oils (often referred to as Energy conserving oils) that contain anti-friction additives, since this will cause clutch slippage and will in turn reduce life of components and cause drop in engine performance. While total quantity of engine oil is 1.2 liters, top up quantity is a convenient one liter.

The 16-inch (410 mm) MRF Zapper wide tyres for the rear wheel are no more available in the Indian market.
