The upcoming scooter will be the most expensive Yamaha scooter to go on sale in India.
At the 2018 Auto Expo, earlier this year, Yamaha showcased the Ray ZR 110 Street Rally Edition concept. The Japanese brand has now shared a teaser video on its official YouTube channel signalling that it will be launching a new scooter soon. From the teaser video, we can identify the scooter in question as the production version of the Ray ZR 110 Street Rally Edition concept.
The styling of the scooter will be similar to the concept showcased at the Auto Expo, including the quirky winglets on the headlight apron. In the teaser we can also see that it will feature redesigned graphics and will be offered in dual-tone shades, along with a red section below the saddle. The concept bike also had an all-digital instrument which will feature in the production version.
The upcoming scooter isn’t an all-new product – it is a Yamaha Ray ZR variant. Yamaha has no plans to launch new products in 2018, as it is focused on the ABS and CBS upgrades to its line-up.
The Ray ZR 110 Street Rally Edition will be powered by the same 113cc, air-cooled motor seen on all Yamaha scooters sold in India. The single-cylinder engine develops 7.2hp and 8.1Nm of torque. The scooter employs a telescopic front fork and a mono-shock unit at the rear.
The two-wheeler runs on 10-inch alloy wheels wrapped around with 90/100 tubeless tyre on both ends. The teaser video also gives us a glimpse of the front disc brake and a drum unit at the rear.
The upcoming Yamaha scooter will carry a marginal premium over the Yamaha Ray ZR, which retails for Rs 55,898 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The manufacturer will also launch the Yamaha R15 V3.0 MotoGP edition in India, soon.
