Yamaha Motor has launched a disc-brake-equipped variant of the Cygnus Alpha scooter priced at Rs 52,556 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The scooter comes with two new colour options – Radiant Cyan and Marvel Black – both of which feature calligraphy designs. The scooter continues to be powered by an air-cooled 113cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine that is enabled with Yamaha’s patented Blue Core Technology. The company claims that this technology helps increase combustion and cooling efficiency, as well as reduces power loss. The scooter offers storage capacity of 21 litres. It features a flat long seat and large foot space for both rider and pillion.
Commenting on the introduction of the new variant, Roy Kurian, vice president, sales & marketing, Yamaha Motor India Sales said, “The scooter market has witnessed rapid growth in the last few years and Yamaha has been able to make steady inroads in this segment. The bike maker is looking at reaching a 10 percent market share by the end of this year and the introduction of this latest variant of the Cygnus Alpha scooter is expected to further propel its growth in the segment. This latest offering with the disc brake is aimed at families who want that additional safety feature.”
The disc-brake variant of the Cygnus Alpha will be available across all Yamaha dealerships by the end of this week. The drum-brake variant of the scooter is already available in the market.
