Yamaha Opens Bookings of Ray 125 Scooter

by Saad on August 13, 2012


The most awaited and the first scooter from Yamaha is finally here. Unveiled at the AutoExpo 2012 in Delhi and caught a few times testing, Yamaha has finally opened advance bookings of the scooter.

However, the 125cc scooter would go on sale later and the bookings made now would entitle you for Yamaha merchandise. Yamaha has updated their site with Ray bookings news and have not sent out any official communication in this regard yet. Bollywood actress Deppika Padukone would be the brand ambassador of the scooter.

There is also a contest wherein you need to guess the correct ex-showroom price of Ray scooter in your state and you could win a ‘Ray’ scooter for free.


Yamaha Ray would complete with the likes of Honda Activa and Suzuki Access in the Indian market and would provide a very viable alternate to these scooters considering that the product is coming from Yamaha’s stables.

We would be very much interested in the pricing policy which Yamaha would adopt and expect that the scooter would be priced somewhere around the Access125 mark.

So if you have been waiting for a Yamaha scooter, go ahead book your scooter and play the guesstimate game here.

Do you feel Ray has the potential to dethrone Activa from its crown?

Activa has old-technology front suspension. Activa, Dio, Pleasure, and Maestro all not have telescopic front suspension. Honda selling old technology with new price.

Aviator is the only honda scooter with telescopic front suspension, but Aviator is very tall and costly too.

Telescopic front suspension gives better handling and better comfort.

Also, Suzuki Access and Swish, TVS Wego, and Mahindra Rodeo all have modern telescopic front suspension and same price of Activa.

Wego is the only scooter with bigger 12-inch alloy wheels, these bigger wheels handle bad roads and humps better.

Access, Swish, and Rodeo also have more powerful 125cc engine. This extra power is helpful when riding doubles.

Good to see Yamaha Ray has modern telescopic front suspension. Hope Ray has 125cc engine.

only advantage with activa is metal body. I agree others have better value for money. Hondas are always over priced

This will be priced around Rs. 50,000/-, anything more and it wont really work.

Already suzuki is rocking with its scooters, Honda activa is old uncle ,old engine, old design, old approach, old suspense but you know what honda charges it customers new price that too higher for its features. Suzuki access and swish rocks no scooters can compete them till date ya but now since yamah is entering the game will change more better people will get better options in markt, so suzuki and yamaha rock and honda overcharges its indian customers

I am using Activa for past six years. I was searching for another scooter recently and test driven all scooters in the market extensively including Honda’s own Aviator. There is a lot of fuss on the trailing link front suspension of Activa. My observations are : 1) None of the other scooters have the butter like engine smoothness of Honda Activa 2)All scooters I had test driven feel stressed or vibrating at some point of their rev range. 3)Excellent suspension and comfort 4) Exactly the space any one require (leg space, under seat storage etc) 5) Consistent mileage 6) Long lasting 7) QUALITY 8)Ergonomics 9) Ability to carry family in comfort ………. Dont just beleive latest technology. I have got a latest technology car which give same mileage as my first car which had carburated technology. so dont create fuss on technology, what matters in Indian context is what the machine delivers day in and day out…much said!

Honda always need choke start in the mornings. Bike need to run 2-3kms to stop the choke But Yamaha starts in the morning with single kick so technology wise yamaha is better. Honda is overcharging people. Honda activa uses old technology Honda activa will be defeated soon. girls will be after yamaha soon after the launch so Yamaha ray will succeed. Dont forget Yamaha is 2nd largest selling two wheeler in the world. Harley-Davidson being the first. so Yamaha will win this indian scooter race

I doubt Harleys are the largest selling 2 wheelers in the world!!!!
