2012 Yamaha Mio Soul i (EFI) 115cc

Posted by on September 10, 2012

Philippines First Yamaha Mio Soul i (EFI) 115cc

Yesterday, Yamaha Philippines Inc launched its latest product, Yamaha Mio Soul I,
The first EFI motorcycle of Yamaha in the Philippines. We should thank Yamaha Philippines
for bringing in EFI scooter bike in the country.

Electronic Fuel Injection motorcycles are known to have the best fuel economy due
to its controlled fine mist of fuel into the engine. This is the same as with newest efficient
diesel cars known as CRDi (common rail direct injection) only that its for gasoline engines.

Yamaha name their EFI technology as  YM-Jet FI (Yamaha Jet Fuel Injection), While Honda
call them PGM-FI (Programmable Fuel Injection), basically it uses the same process that is
injecting a very fine mist of fuel into the cylinder, only different name for marketing purposes.

Yamaha Mio Soul i  in the Philippines is also known as Yamaha Soul GT in indonesia and
Yamaha Mio 115i in thailand. We have to find out what will it be called in Malaysia.

Both indonesian version and Philippine mio efi versions are the same, Thailand version is different.
Its headlight is built together with the steering while the Philippine version is on its front body cowling.
The good thing about the Philippine version is the user has an option to install another headlight
using the thailand version thus having two headlights is possible :-)

Speedometer is also different

The problem with previous version of mio is the lack of ubox space for helmet.
This new version solves it, the ubox is big enough to fit your helmet and few gadgets.

The piston is forge piston, taken from Yamaha Sniper bike only its smaller in diameter.
Forge pistons are known for strength and lightweight which reduces engine vibration.

As well as its diasil bore where there is no steel liner but a full alloy silicon material
which helps desipates heat faster and efficient compared to steel bore.

However, its AIR COOLED engine unlike Sniper and Mio MX where its liquid cooled.
Surely future version of this EFI will  be liquid cooled. But since this is an introductory
EFI motorcycle of yamaha, The total cost of the bike is the first factor they put in.
Expect more variance of EFI bikes in the future.

    Bakit hindi big bikes ang iproduce ng yamaha sa pilipinas…? Nkkasawa na ang scooter in my opinion its time to make a new picture to the streets of Philippines :-)

    • Erick

      Well i think bcoz of our present economic situation the filipino are looking for a more fuel effecient and affordable mode of transportation and that is in the form of underbone! Bigbike is nice & faster but consume more fuel and cost u more when it come to maintenance.

  2. pauldiapz

    ganda pa naman.. pero mahal eh.. haizt…. sayang..
    from bacolod po ako..

  3. Aries

    ok lng yan, kasi di naman nila pdeng kalabanin ang specs ng sariling product nila, pag ginawa nilang injected at air cooled ung soul i sino pa bibili nung mx? diba kaya u can’t have it all ika nga nila hehehehe

  4. James

    Guyz, we just have to wait for those who purchase this motorcycle…. to see the real efficiency of this bike… People wont stop thinking or seeking for the latest technologies. Malay natin in mere future may mas higit nga jan.. but the big question is…. CAN WE STILL AFFORD THOSE BIKES? …. Still i wanna Congratulate yamaha philippines for releasing this awesome EFI motorcycle…. God Speed… Continue exploring….

  5. khay tuazon

    matipid nga sya kc fren ko nag ride sila sa bolinao 4hun plus ang kinain mio FI, mio 5 mx 8hun, nag ma marcial yung nk mio mx…./ sniper mx stock 5hun plus. ride angeles pampanga to bolinao pangasinan. 420 KM balikan

  6. khay tuazon

    sana meron ng blck na lumabas kahit 150cc lang para gumanda hatak nya, na try ko kc sya parang naka mio soul ka lang kung sa tipid ma tipid sya

  7. jun

    mautak tlga ang yamaha ndi pa nilagyan ng radiator yng mio soul gt. at wlang carburator at ndi pa gnawang 125cc gulang tlga ng gumawa nyan gusto kumita lang

  8. RICHARD MENDOZA CAILAN

    taas masyado ng price ng MIO i dapat ibaba nla para ma afford ng masa……

  9. Tulig

    Meron ng Mio 125 i FYI lang mga papa

  10. jun

    sobrang tipid nga sa gasolina ang mio soul na yan pero pag na aksidente ka at nagkasira ang motor mo sa yamaha ka lang makakakuha ng spare part at ang mahal pa

  11. james MIO fan (XFT-digos)

    Great! This will be a big hit for YAHAMA Marketing. Actually I’m a great fan of YAMAHA motors (I acquired MIO Sporty)
    Here are my little analysis related to this new product, My Personal Rating (range 1-5) for MIO Soul FI:
    Apperance = 1
    Performance = 2
    Price = 3
    Fuel consumption = 4

    And here are my comparison: MIO Sporty vs. MIO Soul FI
    Apperance = MIO Sporty (eye-catching sporty look)
    Performance = MIO Sporty (horse-power can trail 35 degrees and even more)
    Market Price = MIO Sporty (the time I purchased it the cost is P62,000, now the current price P68,000)
    Fuel consumption = MIO Soul FI (but for your information my current consumption of my MIO Sporty is now reaching 54 km/L)

    - E-mail me (james_sipalay@yahoo.com), and I will tell you how.

  12. Lorence rikki

    Ang kagandahan lng ng motor na yan . Matipid siya sa gas ang tanong pede bng pang drag yan kasi hndi napapalitan ang carb eh ! Chaka kapag nasira wala kang mabibilan ang spare parts sa ordinary market sa yamaha ka lng makakabili ! At ang pagkakaalam ko sa bike na yan pamaykrochip yan pag nasira yung pinakang housing niyan lahat ang chip palit lahat . Chaka ang mahal pa hndi kaya ng masa yan !:/

    • David

      Pwede na po kargahan ang mio soul i mga papa mine naka 59mm na

  13. franz wong

    magkano kaya tong mio soul i ? pm me kong mag kano to …..buy ako new …..bibenta ko mio soul koh…

  14. kingarboc

    di naman tipid eh puro kayo bulaan.., sayang lang ang bili ko

  15. barete cristopher

    kuha na lang kayo nang vintage type… para hindi maluma

  16. Ron Patrick Tan

    The highest reported FC during break-in was 62Km/L. my consumption so far is one of the lowest due to my weight, riding style and terrain. My highest FC so far is 42Km/L.

  17. p1

    Ky nga bumili ako at di kayo mgsisisi, kht may mio p ako png drag maghahanap k tlg ng mio soul I happy!!

  18. ever

    talagang matipid ang mio soul i at mabilis humatak di gaya yon may carburator, nahihirapan makakuha ng bwelo. sa palagay ko, di naman magbebenta ng motor ang yamaha na madaling masira, alam naman natin na tested na ang mga motor nila dahil yon 1st motor ko na nabili ko nun 1996 na RS100t, yon 2stroke na pampasada at hanggang ngayon ay tumatakbo pa. at yon motor ng kapatid ko na crypton 110cc na nabili niya nun 1998 ay tumatakbo pa rin at take note, di pa natune-up at nabuksan ang makina nun eversince nabili nila sa norkis!!! kaya tiwala ako sa yamaha pagdating sa motor kahit mahal ang presyo niya, sulit naman dahil matibay at tatagal basta alagaan lang natin.

  19. taraki88

    pero totoo bng d n pwedeng i-mods ang makina ng soul-i?

    • David

      Pwede na po pero d lahat ng mechanic kaya dahil naka fi sya but may alam ako na magaling na mechanic at d pa malaking gastos
      Email me if interested davidlim0001@yahoo.com pa kita ko sayo u it ko na upgraded

    • marlo noriega

      na modify ko yung sa akin. just bought it last month then pina kargahan ko ng TWH 58.5 bore plug and play lang, kasi touring lang naman, pero may power sya.

  20. Jojo Benitez

    puro kayo drag nanalo ba kayo? kala mo naman kung maka pg salita marunong sa motor e. iba ang soul i cyempre utak naman

  21. Warren Cabrera

    I own a Mio Soul i, my unit by far is very fuel efficient, ranging from 47kms/L (hataw speed) to 57kms/L (cruising speed). To know your actual fuel consumption, fill the tank (hindi siksik) note the odo reading, pag naka kalahati na, mag full tank ka ulit, wag siksik ha, less noted odo reading to your present odo reading, then divide the litres filled to your kms run.

  22. Edgar

    I purchased Mio Soul i last Dec. 22,2012..So far it performed well and the fuel efficiency is good.

  23. jom

    mga sir help me naman kukuha kasi ako ng mx 125 kaso mejo lumabas itong soul i. ano po ba ang mas may advantages when it comes to maintainace. need your expert advice.

  24. Junar Montoya

    share ko lng..

    i own a mio sporty 160cc

    SJDM Bulacan to TOYOTA PASIG via LAGRO, FAIRVIEW, COMMONWEALTH, UP, KATIPUNAN, LIBIS and C5..estimated 89km (round trip)

    fueled up @ Shell amparo station full tank 100 pesos @ 48.52/ liter Vpower nitro + approx 2.06 liters

    way back home i refueled again at same gas station full tank costing for only 60 pesos exactly
    approx 1.23 liters

    conclusion:

    my mio sporty (BUDDY) 160cc fuel consumption is 72.3km/liter

    specs: 59mm bore, 28/24 valves, Stock stroke, 24mm carb

    MIO SOUL i EFI fuel consumption is 55.7km/liter

  34. Albert Tuazon

  35. lakay

    Sa mga mahilig bumitaw – hindi pwede sa iyo ang MIO SOUL i
    Sa mga naghahanap buhay, regular na mananakay – eto ang para sa iyo

  36. houndz

    mayron na rin VEGA FORCE FI… someday, ma phase out na ung mga carburator type. FI na lahat nang fuel system nang engine.

  37. miolover

    balak kong bumili ng mio soul ano ba ang dis advantages nun at advantages,babae kasi walang marunong gumawa sa pag nasira

    • mer

      advantages: matipid sa gas, quick response (pero smooth acceleration), hindi po takaw dagdag sa lagis, new model, may FI tuning tools na po ang yamaha dealers.
      disadvantages: first unit FI model maaaring hindi kasing stable katulad ng mga naunang models.
      basta regularly check engine oil para malaman kung nabawasan, kailangan na magdagdag. high quality engine oil dapat mahal man hindi naman ma-sacrifice yung engine performance, para iwassira. hindi naman po madaling masira ang isang sasakyan basta all stock (standard quality, original parts ang nakakabit.)

  38. april

    boss san mkkabili ng spare parts ng soul i (EFI) ? na gasgas kc sa my headlight nya , kht headlight lng , any suggestions po, triny ko na sa ayosdto at sulit.com la eh :( please ?

  39. ricky

  40. sai

    I have this one mganda to agad pansin dhl bagong labas ng yamaha pero hrap sa 100.

  41. Yamaha_Amore

    maganda ang FI para sa mga tao gusto mag tipid..pero kaso lang wala pa parts for racing..customization na kac ngayon ang uso kahit saan ka magpunta may makikita ka talagang customized bikes…kaya sa old mio ang vote ko..

  42. mio_amore

  43. Rich

    Yamaha Mio Soul i po, 52km/L, top speed is 110km./h, safe po ang computer box kahit mabasa ng ulan o bumaha, basta wag lang naka on ang makina, computer box controls lahat, pagisinampa sa dyno, iconnect yun cables sa sensors connected to Yamaha’s laptop, malalaman na kagad kung may problema sa block, ignition, tambutso, kung may pinalitan kang mga ilaw, so it is really hassle free, and extended ang warranty for 2 years, may mga karga na naavailable for Soul i, pero nasa Thailand palang, next year, 2014, arrival, sa Pinas, check Japanese tuning, mas mabilis ang mga kargadong Fuel Injected kumpara sa old school na carburator, in Japan, iTune lang nila yun ECU o Computer Box, they could increase the horsepower and torque output ng motorcycle o kotse, and that’s how easy it is! Kung stockan ang labanan, mas matipid Soul i kumpara sa older version ng mio, pagnakargahan pah lalong mas matipid!

  44. toy-capiz

    nka open pipE then a little tweak on TPS.. tOp speed 110

  45. marco

    ..mga boss,sensitibo ba mga wiring ng soul i.pnalgyan q kc ng tackleswtch ung soul q at hazard lighs..maaapektohn kya ung soul q..anu dsadvantge nun?

  54. jan jason

    nag ka grave nman ang yamaha……………)

  55. roblie

    Huwag kayong basta magpaniwala sa mga nagsasabi ng negative, malay ninyo mga mekaniko lang iyan sa tabi tabi na naiinsecure sa pagdating at pagkauso ng mga FI. Matipid talaga considering na break in period pa lang yung soul i ko. Sa arangkada, napaka-smooth at suwabe, making you confident sa overtaking. Sa hatak malakas siya kahit sa akyatan kahit may backride, parang 125cc. Epekto siguro ang mga iyan ng misting effect sa gasoline ng FI. nag long rides to Marilaque walang naging problema. Marami at malaki ang advantages ng FI kumpara sa carburator. Former Raider 150 owner here and I really admire the acceleration and torque of this scooter. Matipid, swabe, no regrets buying this scooter. Napaka-practical.

    • walden

      hindi naman maglalabas ang yamaha kung hindi tested eh, and besides dito lang naman sa Philippines ang unsa but in ohter countries naglabas na sila ng mga racing type sa EFI.
