Yamaha to launch Ray scooter this Diwali
At this year’s Auto Expo, Yamaha showcased a pink-purple and black scooter named ‘Ray.’ And now the news is that this 125cc scooter is going to become a production reality. There had been rumors that Yamaha was entering into the scooter segment in India and recent news shows that the Japanese bike manufacturer will be making an entry into the scooter segment with the Ray around Diwali.
Their flagship scooter is set to target female customers primarily and will have chic styling, vivid colours, a smooth engine feel and a large underseat storage space. The company has also picked John Abraham as the scooters brand ambassador and this may help convincing the PYTs to choose this scooter over other options in the market. The pricing for this 125cc scooter hasn’t been disclosed yet but we expect it to be priced between Rs 40-50K.
Yamaha is also planning to set up a new plant in South India and, if their present offerings are anything to go by, we reckon their upcoming entries into the bike and scooter segment should be some of the most exciting, sporty and stylish offerings in their own categories. Bring it on!
