New Yamaha Ray ZR 125 price has risen by Rs 2800 in the last six months. There are three variants on offer…
Along with the new Fascino 125, Yamaha has also updated its Ray branded scooters quite comprehensively. These scoots retain the signature design theme but the styling has gone through a major change.
Both the Ray ZR 125 and the Street Rally 125 now come equipped with the bigger 125 cc, air cooled blue core engine which produces 8.2 PS of peak power at 6500 rpm and a maximum torque of 9.7 Nm at 5000 rpm. In comparison, the older 113cc Ray ZR churned 7.2 PS and 8.1 Nm. Both of them now feature fuel injection, in place of carburetor.
Power is up by 30 percent and also peaks in 1000 rpm earlier. These scoots are equipped with Stop & start system wherein the engine gets shut off after a three second halt and it can be brought to power again upon a twist of the throttle. With the use of this feature, Yamaha claims that these scooters become 16 percent more economical than their 113cc engined counterparts.
Both the Rays also get Unified Braking System (UBS) and are also shod with a smart motor generator (SMG) – which we have already seen on the Honda Activa 125 FI. Yamaha has also introduced the ‘side stand engine cut-off switch’ which doesn’t let the engine power on if the side stand remains engaged.
An interesting styling element of these scooters is the Y-shaped LED position light and the side blinkers at the front use individual mount stalks.
