The Yamaha Mio is a scooter with a CVT transmission made by Yamaha Motor. It was introduced for the Southeast Asia market in 2003 as the successor of the Nouvo. In Malaysia, this model is known as Yamaha Ego. As 2007, there were some 76,000 Ego customers in Malaysia.[1] Together with its counterpart the Yamaha Nouvo, the Mio/Ego is a platform for customization in Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.

Model history[edit]

2003[edit]

Based on sales performance and also technical studies of its predecessor Yamaha Nouvo by Yamaha's R&D team, in 2003 Yamaha Motor successfully developed and marketed Yamaha Mio in Southeast Asia countries and on March 2004, Hong Leong Yamaha (HLY) introduced this model in Malaysia, renaming it Yamaha Ego.[2]

2006[edit]

2006 brought some new changes to the Mio. It was renamed and since then has been known as the Yamaha Mio Soul (except for the Malaysian market).

Physical change also can be seen in the 2006 model specifications. This includes an aggressive facelift by the Yamaha team: it features newly design V-shape headlight for better vision range at night and new body stripes. The engine, however, remained the same as in the 2003 model. For safety concerns, the taillight was re-designed with the addition of a retroreflector device.

For the Malaysian market, HLY again renamed the scooter as the Yamaha Ego S (S for Sport) and launched it in October 2007. The launch ceremony took place at the Sheraton Subang Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.[3]
