The Ray ZR continues to be priced at Rs 53,451 for the drum brake model and Rs 55,898 for the one with front disc brake (both ex-showroom, Delhi).
Yamaha’s youth-focused scooter, the Cygnus Ray-ZR, has received revised colour schemes and graphics for the 2018 model year.
The new colour options are called Armada Blue, Matt Green, Maverick Blue and Rooster Red. All these new shades can be had in the disc brake variant of the Ray ZR. On the other hand, Armada Blue and Rooster Red won’t be available on the drum brake model.
Yamaha has positioned the Cygnus Ray ZR as a macho scooter that is designed to reflect the strength of a ‘well-trained physique’. Consequently, the scooter sports a deeply-sculpted and powerful front mask along with slightly muscular body panels in comparison to other Ray models in the range.
Powering the Ray ZR is the same air-cooled 4-stroke, 113cc motor that’s mated to a V-Matic gearbox. Tipping the scale at 103kg, the ZR is claimed to be easily maneuverable and agile to ride. The scooter has a claimed fuel economy 66km/l.
On the launch, Roy Kurian, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Yamaha India said, “As the two-wheeler industry recorded a growth of almost per cent in the year 2017, the scooters segment maintained its growth momentum at 12 per cent. The brand has been able to make steady inroads and will rev hearts with many more exciting products, particularly targeted at trend conscious young customers. By introducing new colors in Cygnus Ray ZR, the company will look forward to reinstate fresh excitement in this segment”.
