Scoop – Yamaha Ray 110 Scooter Details

Total Shares 0

Yamaha Ray

Yamaha will be launching the Ray Scooter in the Indian market on the 14th of September, 2012. The company has already started bookings of the Yamaha Ray, which can be done for Rs. 5000/- at Yamaha dealers across the country. Deliveries will start in the second week of October. This is Yamaha’s first foray into the lucrative scooter market in India. Internationally Yamaha has a good line-up of scooters on sale. If the Yamaha Ray does good numbers, the Japanese automaker could bring in more scooters to India, there by challenging Honda for market share eventually.

When Yamaha unveiled the Ray Scooter at the 2012 Auto Expo, the company did not reveal any specifications about the product. There were abundant guesses about the cubic capacity of the Ray. Since the Ray is a Yamaha product, most people thought it would be powered by a 125cc engine. However as per our sources, Yamaha has gone with a 113cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, air-cooled SOHC engine. This engine will produce around 8 BHP of peak power at 8000 RPM and around 8.62 Nm of peak torque at 7000 RPM (torque figures are not confirmed). The company claims a mileage of 45 km/l.

The Yamaha Ray scooter will feature telescopic front suspension and a good amount of under seat storage. It weighs around 105 kgs and is being positioned towards female riders. The ex-showroom price of the scooter is expected to be around Rs. 50,000/-. Yamaha will be producing the Ray at its Surajpur facility. The company plans to export the SZ and FZ-series motorcycles to South America and Africa in the future. The motorcycle major is also working hard to increase localization on its products, which would ensure more aggressive pricing of future bikes.

    hi, how accurate is the information? particularly the engine cc being 113 rather than 125. reference to credible sources appreciated. many thanks

    • Roy, we will have to wait for confirmation but I am quite sure about the above info.

    • roy

      thanks faisal. been waiting for a 125cc yamaha ray for a while and in fact even booked one on the very day booking were open. needless to say, would be a disappointment if it comes out with the 110-113 cc. fingers crossed! ;)

    • Roy, we are quite sure it will be a 113cc engine.

  • Amish

    8bhp sounds good from 113cc engine considering the fact that it will deliver near 40-45kmpl.Any reasons why no 125cc,because initially talks were on a 125cc engine in Ray?

    • Amish, they are targeting the Ray towards female riders, who really don’t look at performance over FE.

  • Deepak

    Looks similar to the Honda Dio!

    • AVS

      DIO with a telescopic front suspension. !!!…

  • Sushrut

    Yamaha dealer in Pune has confirmed that Ray would come with 125cc engine.

    • Sushrut, many dealers are saying 125cc. However there is no confirmation from Yamaha yet!
