Yamaha Motors India entered the domestic scooter market with their Ray offering. Unfortunately, the Japanese-based two-wheeler manufacturer has decided to stop offering the Ray in India. The Ray scooter is removed from Yamaha India's official website, which confirms this news.
The Ray scooter was used as a base to spawn several other Yamaha scooters. The Ray-Z was a direct derivative from the Ray scooter with edgy and sporty design language. Both Alpha and Fascino share the same engine that was used in the Yamaha Ray scooter.
Powering the Ray scooter was an 113cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine. The scooter produces 7bhp, along with 8.1Nm of peak torque output. Yamaha provided its Ray scooter with a V-belt automatic transmission with a dry centrifugal clutch.
Recently, at 2016 Auto Expo Yamaha India showcased the Cygnus Ray ZR scooter. There is a high possibility that Yamaha has discontinued the Ray in order to make way for the new scooter. Yamaha Cygnus Ray ZR will be available with drum and disc brake option, along with alloy wheels and steel wheels as an option.
