New Yamaha scooter

New Yamaha X-City

More shiny newness from Milan...

Well this looks suspiciously like the Piaggio 250cc models (I mean really! Look at that seat), still, it's always nice to see the Japanese producing larger displacement scooters that don't look like a cross between a Goldwing and a Lazee boy. Of course, no word yet on availability to us Damn Yankees.
