Once it gets launched officially on the market, then it goes as a direct potential threat to Honda and Suzuki scooters. Already there is a new Suzuki scooter variant which we recently told you about, the Suzuki Swish 125cc.
As we all know that Yamaha is famous for its powerful engines, this scooter Yamaha Ray will hold a 100-125cc powerful engine which mainly concentrates on mileage. Only when it beats in mileage it can outstand other competitors in this range. All the scooters from Yamaha Ray 125cc is automatic CVT variant and the price factor will range between 40-50k.
Already we know that Japanese bike maker Yamaha’s scooters are doing well on Thailand, vietnam and other asian countries, but still the models such as MIO, FINO and XEON don’t have any hope to come in India anytime soon.
