The Yamaha T135 is an sport underbone manufactured by Yamaha Motor Company since 2005. It is known as the Spark 135/135i in Thailand, Sniper/MX 135 in the Philippines, Jupiter MX 135 LC in Indonesia, 135LC in Malaysia, Exciter 135 in Vietnam, and Crypton X 135 in Greece. It is powered by a 134.4 cc (8.20 cu in) single-cylinder engine.
The bike is succeeded by the 150 cc T-150.
The T135 debuted in 2005 for the Thailand and Indonesian markets, and then the Malaysian market in February 2006. The model was very successful in Southeast Asia especially in Malaysia.
To promote the T135, Yamaha organized a 9,000 km (5,600 mi) road tour of ASEAN countries in November 2005 through May 2006, passing through Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Philippines.
In 2008, the fuel injected version of the T135 was launched for the Thailand market (dubbed as Spark 135i), making it the second underbone motorcycle using fuel injection after the Honda's Wave 125i. There are 3 main Yamaha factories that assembled the T135. These are Indonesia, Thailand and newest is Philippines.
In 2011, the T135 was facelifted with a new body design. The transmission of the Malaysia's and Indonesia's manual clutch variant was revised to 5-speed transmission from the previous 4-speed as an upgrade. Hong Leong Yamaha Malaysia produced a cut-off from the CDI which limits the motorcycle's performance for the facelifted version.
In 2016, the manual clutch variant of the T135 was discontinued, as the T-150 made its debut. The automatic clutch variant is still sold.
