2023 Yamaha Fascino 125, Ray ZR 125, Ray ZR Street Rally 125: more details
The big change on the Fascino 125, Ray ZR 125 and Ray ZR Street Rally 125 is that they now get engines that can run on greener, ethanol 20 fuel. The engine is a 125cc, air-cooled unit that continues to produce 8.2hp at 6,500rpm and 10.3Nm at 5,000rpm and features Yamaha’s hybrid system and auto start/stop tech. Furthermore, all three models are now OBD-2 compliant, ahead of the April 1 deadline.

Prices of all three scooters have been hiked by Rs 1,500 owing to these updates. The Fascino 125 now ranges from Rs 78,600-91,030, the Ray ZR 125 costs between Rs 82,730-89,530 and the Ray ZR Street Rally 125 is priced between Rs 92,530-93,530.

Yamaha has also added new colour schemes to these scooters' line-ups. The Fascino 125 and Ray ZR 125 Disc variants get a new Dark Matt Blue colour, priced at Rs 91,030 and 89,530 respectively. Moreover, the Ray ZR 125 disc and drum variants get new graphics in its existing colours of Matt Red, Metallic Black and Cyan Blue. The Ray ZR Street Rally 125, meanwhile, gets two new colour schemes for the Disc variant. The first is the Light Grey Vermillion scheme and the second is Matte Black, and both are priced at Rs 93,530.

The company has also made its Y-Connect Bluetooth app now standard across its 125cc scooter range, while earlier it was only offered on the Disc variants.

Much like these scooters, Yamaha recently launched updated versions of its FZS, FZ-X, MT-15 and R15 M motorcycles, all of which received traction control, LED indicators and OBD-2 and E20 compliance.
