Launched at ₹57,898 (ex-showroom Delhi), the Ray ZR Street Rally Edition will be available at dealerships from the last week of July.
At the Auto Expo 2018, earlier this year in February, Yamaha launched the updated YZF-R3 and the much awaited YZF-R15 v3.0. But with a huge crowd waiting to get a glimpse of these two machines, the Ray ZR Street Rally Edition was somewhat getting overshadowed. But now, the company has finally launched it at a price tag of ₹57,898 (ex-showroom Delhi).
So, how is this Street Rally Edition of the scooter different from the standard model? Well, to start with, the Ray ZR Street Rally Edition comes with quite a few changes on the front-end. Unlike the standard Ray ZR, which had fins on the sides, this edition gets it on the top. The front-end of the scooter has also been fitted with faux air ducts. The scooter showcased at the Auto Expo sported funkier vinyl stickers and contrast coloured alloy wheels – both things are missing in the version that is now on sale. The Ray ZR Street Rally Edition also misses out on the two-tone seat.
The Yamaha Ray ZR Street Rally Edition may look different, but underneath the skin it is identical to the standard model. From a 113cc motor, it produces 7.1bhp and 8.1Nm. While the standard model tips the scale at 105kg, considering the additional bodywork, this Ray ZR Street Edition is likely to be a few kilograms heavier. The scooter has a 10-inch tyre up front and a similar sized tyre at the rear.
Yamaha has officially launched the scooter, but it will only be available at dealerships from the last week of July. The Japanese bikemaker will only offer the scooter in two colours to start with - Rally Red and Racing Blue.
