Yamaha India not only launched the Fascino 125 but also revealed its more sportier version, the Ray ZR 125. The Yamaha Ray ZR 125 is based on the 110cc Ray but looks so much different. In fact, if you ask us, it is outlandish. Just like the Fascino 125, even this one doesn’t get an LED headlight, however there are LED position lamps. The instrument console is all-LCD. Yamaha hasn’t revealed the price of the scooter but then the launch or commercial availability will happen in a few weeks time from now. Yamaha is offering the scooter with matte blue, cyan blue, red-yellow and matte red colours.
The Yamaha Ray ZR 125 BS-VI indeed looks too cool
Yamaha calls its the ‘Armored Energy’ concept. It is likely that this design language will spawn many new concepts in the future, mostly in the 125cc space. Strangely enough, even this scooter has a 99kg kerb weight. It also is powered by the same 125cc motor that is fuel injected and makes 8.2PS of power as well as 9.7Nm of torque. For a quieter engine start, a new Smart Motor Generator has been used. There is also the start-stop system that promises 16 per cent better economy than the 110cc scooters. Yamaha has also used a side stand indicator cut-off. When the side stand is engaged, the scooter will not start. It is a safety feature. Speaking of which, an optional 190mm disc brake is on offer while UBS is standard.
The Ray ZR 125 is joined by an even more radical Street Rally 125 version. This one promises a beefy design along with knobby tyres. There are also new crash guards both at the front as well as rear. Knuckle guards too have been provided. Yamaha hasn’t announced the prices of the Street Rally as well. The engine though remains the same whereas claimed mileage is 58kmpl.
