Yamaha Motor India today updated its vehicle portfolio with the launch of the new hybrid scooter RayZR in the Indian market. Equipped with an attractive look and new technology, this scooter has been introduced in two variants, which include RayZR 125 Fi Hybrid and Street Rail Hybrid. The starting price of this scooter has been fixed at Rs 76,830 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The company says that the Ray ZR scooter has been specially designed keeping in mind the men and women in the age group of 18 to 40 years. Whereas the street rally model will be suitable for the youth in the age group of 18 to 25 years. The company has given it a slightly sporty look and design. This scooter has been introduced in the market with a total of 7 colors, out of which some colors are also new.
Yamaha has used an air-cooled, fuel-injected single cylinder engine with a capacity of 125cc in this scooter. Which generates 8Hp power and 10.3Nm torque. Its total weight is 99 kg. Both these models are equipped with Yamaha’s Smart Motor Generator (SMG) system. The hybrid system given in it makes the mileage of the scooter even better. The company says that the SMG system reduces the insecurity caused by stagger while riding on uphill roads.
When the scooter is started, the power assist function is automatically canceled after 3 seconds or when the throttle is cut back or the engine RPM exceeds the specified level. Additionally, an indicator light in the instrument cluster notifies the rider when the Power Assist (Hybrid System) is on.
Yamaha’s Bluetooth-enabled Motorcycle Connect-X app is also seen in the RayZR 125 Fi Hybrid (disc version) and Street Rally 125 Fi Hybrid. Which offers many convenient features including Callback, Locate My Vehicle, Riding History, Parking Record and Hazard.
Talking about other features, this scooter will get side stand engine cut off switch, pass switch, LED position light, power assist indicator, multi-function key with seat opener, wide 110 mm rear tire and a large 21-litre under-seat. Storage is also available. Overall, the company has introduced a better scooter in its price segment.
