A 115-cc scooter up until now, the Fino has received a bump up to 125 cc for the next model year. The previous motor is similar to the 113-cc unit in the Ray Z, Alpha and Fascino we have on sale here, and we hope to see similar enhancements in India, if not an all-new product.
The BLUE CORE concept is at the heart of construction here, literally, to enhance power and torque output as well as fuel efficiency and emissions. The air-cooled, fuel-injected 125-cc engine first arrived on the Grand Filano last year, followed by the GT125. In Thailand, it is even E85 (ethanol fuel) ready.
The new Fino has quite a few funky colour schemes to choose from, including optional black cast-alloy wheels on the list. It receives a new frame to better suit the engine and also gets diamond-cut lens LED headlights.
We don’t know if the Fino is destined for India, but we sure hope that Yamaha Motor India have a lot more on the cards to build on the momentum they have with the launch of the YZF-R3.
