For 2021 the bike has been given an updated ‘unisex’ look (according to Yamaha!). We aren’t quite sure what counts as unisex, but it is definitely smarter and more modern than the outgoing model. The front end is highlighted by a revised and less retro-looing headlight, heavily revised indicators, and chrome flashes that run up the front leg-fairing.

Styling aside, the engine of the bike is the area that has seen the biggest updates, with the Euro5 certification being the most notable change. Next up is the inclusion of Yamaha’s Start & Stop technology, allowing the bike’s engine to cut out while sat stationary at traffic lights. Upon releasing the brakes and twisting the throttle again the engine will fire up allowing the rider to move off again.

Light by name and very light by nature, Yamaha has managed to re-style the bike and add the new Start & Stop technology and only marginally increase the bike’s weight. The 2021 D’elight is still one of the lightest weight scooters you can buy, coming in at a featherweight 101kg fuelled up and ready to go!
