Yamaha announces its second scooter for the Indian market-CYGNUS RAY Z
Yamaha today announced the launch of the new CYGNUS RAY Z as the Yamaha brand’s second scooter model for the Indian market. The CYGNUS RAY Z is a model developed to target young male users in their late teens and early twenties with its concept of Aggressive Sporty Design. It keeps the same basic performance of the CYGNUS RAY model released in September 2012 while giving it a sporty look and feel with 1) a smoked-finish visor for a motorcycle-like image, 2) aluminum rear wing-shaped tandem rider grab-bars, 3) a new instrument panel with a carbon fiber patterned background, 4) a carbon fiber patterned seat cover material, and 5) dynamic coloring and graphics. The new model adopts the same air-cooled 115cc engine as the CYGNUS RAY with its smooth start-up acceleration and good pickup.
India’s motorcycle market surpassed China’s in 2012 to become the world’s largest with an annual demand of approximately 14 million units (Yamaha Motor survey), with especially rapid expansion of the scooter category in recent years. Yamaha RAY Z will be available for approximately Rs 48550(local taxes extra).
