Yamaha PG-1 (Honda Hunter Cub competetor?)

A new Yamaha model to a certain extend made to look like the Honda Hunter Cub
was presented in Thailand the other day. Dont know all the specs yet but the engine is a 115 cc Yamaha engine they use in some of their scooter models….

What diameter are the wheels? That was the let-down for me about the new Hunter Cub, especially since Honda previously made something similar with bigger wheels.

Well, it certainly looks like exactly my cup of tea, lol. The wheel diameter and weight were the two things that put me off the new Hunter Cub 125 ... though it's a bit academic since I'm already sorted for small / slow transport, it's nice to think about

Not bad but I think they've missed the point of a step-thru, which you're supposed to be able to... errr... step thru.

Not just for stepping through but a useful central luggage space, I am not sure anyone will get a luggage rack in there in they do on the CT.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
