The drum brake model is sold only in new Matt Green and Maverick Blue while the disc variant gets all the trendy new paint jobs
India Yamaha Motors (IYM) has introduced new colours for its Cygnus Ray-ZR scooter in the domestic market. The good-looking scooter has received four new shades as the entry-level model drum brake model is priced at Rs. 53,451 and it goes up to Rs. 55,898 for the disc brake variant (both prices ex-showroom, New Delhi).
The newly introduced four colour options are Rooster Red, Maverick Blue, Armada Blue and Matt Green. The drum brake model is sold only in Matt Green and Maverick Blue joining the already existing Dark Knight but the disc variant gets all the trendy new paint jobs. The Japanese manufacturer says it is looking forward to reinstating fresh excitement into the scooter segment with the new Cygnus Ray-ZR.
The launch of new colours specifically target young audiences and it is to keep the ball roll on the scooter space that maintained a growth momentum of 12 percent last year when the two-wheeler industry grew by almost 8 percent. Despite the new shades, no design changes have been made available.
The Yamaha Cygnus Ray-ZR features a razor sharp overall profile and has unique lines separating it from the rest of its competitors. Developed under the concept of “Real Boy’s Scooter”, it adorns front fenders with integrated turn indicators, 10-inch black alloy wheels and sculpted rear profile going in line with the sleek front fascia.
Other important features are analogue instrument panel, key shutter locking system, apron pockets, under seat storage of 21-litre capacity, sporty grab rails, a utility hook, etc. Apart from the new colours, Yamaha has not implemented any mechanical modifications to the new Cygnus Ray-ZR as it continues to be powered by the 113 cc, air-cooled, four-stroke, two-valve engine with Blue Core technology.
It is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 7.2 PS at 7,500 rpm and 8.1 Nm of peak torque delivered at 5,000 rpm. The engine is connected to a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) unit which helps in returning a claimed fuel efficiency of 66 kmpl. The Yamaha Cygnus Ray-ZR sits on telescopic front fork and single shock absorber at the rear.
