Yamaha has always been known for great designs and have launched some great looking motorcycles in India and around the world. This uncanny habit, it seems, have percolated to their scooters as well and both their Ray and Ray Z look real good.
Yamaha has informed that their Ray Z has won the India Design Mark Award, by the Indian Design Council. The India Design Mark is affiliated with Government of India’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry, and follows the same standards of the Japan’s Good Design Awards. By the India Design Mark Award, the India Design Council aims to instigate Indian manufacturers to produce well designed products that enrich the lives of people.
This is Yamaha’s third consecutive award. They have won it for the YZF-R15 and Ray earlier. The company first entered the scooter business in 2012 when they showcased their scooter Ray, targeting the women based customer base and later the Ray- Z targeting young male users between the age group of 18 and 25 years. Both the Ray and Ray Z has received a positive response, selling approximately 1,50,000 units by the end of 2013.
