The Cygnus Ray ZR shares same 113cc engine which Yamaha is been using in all of their scooter models , the mill is capable to produce almost same performance figure as it does on the Fascino- 7.3 Ps of max power at 7500 Rpm and 8.1 Nm of torque at 5000 Rpm. Yamaha has successfully limited the overall kerb weight of the new Ray-ZR and it tips the scale at 103 Kg.
The lightweight Ray-ZR with its frugal Blue Core Yamaha mill claimed to return fuel efficiency of 66 Kmpl. The Ray ZR also comes featured with optional front disc brake, which is first for any of the Yamaha scooters in India. However, the disc size is by far the smallest among all of its competition. The Ray-ZR is also featured with Tubeless tyres which were badly missing in the Fascino.
The new scooter will be available in two variants- the disc brake variant is priced at Rs 54,500 (Ex-Showroom, Delhi) and the Drum brake variant has a price tag of Rs 52,000 (Ex-Showroom, Delhi). Both variants will be available in two exclusive colors- Matt Green and Fizz White for Disc Brake variant, whereas, Rooster Red and Maverick Blue for Drum brake variant. The delivery of the new Cygnus Ray-ZR will commence from May’16 onward.
