Yamaha showcases Indian scooter
5th Jan 2012 9:30 pm
Yamaha has unveiled a concept scooter that will become their first Indian scooter when launched later in 2012.
Yamaha has uncovered their much awaited Indian scooter –called the Ray for now, which could change by the time the scooter hits showrooms around mid 2012. Though the Yamaha scooter displayed at the Auto Expo is currently at a concept stage, this is clearly targeted at the fairer sex. The edgy, stylish and compact looking Ray looks like being a light, small capacity (approximately 100-125cc) scooter, well suited to urban Indian commuting duties. Also on display are the Xeon 125, Fino and Mio scooters, all currently available in Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam.
Yamaha is also displaying new limited edition YZF-R15 Version 2.0 variants in white and fiery red colors, these marking the 50th anniversary celebrations of Yamaha’s Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix. The fiery red R15 limited edition bike will be priced at Rs 1.10 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and the white and red bike will sell for Rs 1.11 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The company plans to sell just 4,000 units of each of these limited edition R15s.
