Though bike aficionados in India were waiting for Yamaha India to bring much speculated Yamaha YZF-R250, the company had some other plans for the male buyers. Yamaha had been busy developing range of new automatic scooters focused on emerging auto scooter market in India. Bringing Yamaha Ray Z scooter into picture, Yamaha has taken the leap forward in the automatic scooter market in India.
Regarded as the second scooter from the company, Yamaha Ray Z is truly a male specific scooter in terms of design language and some handful of features. Also, the upcoming scooter will be designed with higher saddle height and will come with optional disc brake.
The new Ray sibling has majorly undergone cosmetic upgrades that make it looks quite peppy and fresh. Interestingly, Yamaha Ray Z, like FZ-S series, will have a small windshield too. Some of the decal works on the body look impressive; be it matte all black color scheme on its front panel or the optional chequered pattern just below the rear seat (lower end), Yamaha Ray Z looks impressive in the very first look.
Overall, the new Yamaha Ray gets a multicolor job with white-black, red-black combination and all black theme. Apart from the racing strips that adds to its sporty appeal, the blunt steel wheels and telescopic suspension in black also adds to the sportiness of the scooter. Many of the riders, who were expecting set of optional disc brakes upfront, have been disheartened by Yamaha this time.
The new good looking Yamaha Ray Z features 113cc motor that will give 7PS and peak torque of 8.1Nm. There will be standard options of Electric and Kick start. The company also claims that Yamaha Ray Z mileage will be almost similar to Yamaha Ray, accounting almost 53kms per liter while its top speed can touch the mark of 85kmph.
