Yamaha unveiled a new scooter for the Indian market, the Cygnus Ray ZR built to thrill the youth, and based around the Ray scooter platform. Roy Kurian, VP sales and marketing for Yamaha India, identified the booming Indian scooter market as a strong growth driver. The Ray ZR is a response to this assertion.
The Ray ZR is developed mainly for male customers with aggressive, masculine styling. The headlamp and indicators have separate housings, and interesting bits on the new scooter displayed at the Yamaha stand within the Auto Expo, included high quality control levers, as also a colourful rear suspension strut with gas reservoir.
The new Ray is powered by a four-stroke, 113cc, single overhead camshaft equipped, two-valve, air-cooled engine as already used by the original Ray scooter. This is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) system. The new Yamaha scooter weighs in at 103kg, with a front disc brake-equipped variant on offer.
The Cygnus Ray ZR features a 21 litre storage bay under the seat, up-market telescopic fork front suspension and alluminium alloy wheels, as come with the disc brake-equipped variant.
Yamaha has not disclosed the price or launch date for the Cygnus Ray-ZR for now.
