In terms of design, the new Yamaha Fascino retains most of the same design lines and body contours. However, the scooter gets a fair amount of chrome on it to give it that upmarket look. Yamaha also offers the new Fascino 125 with a range of colour options. The Fascino is offered in two variants, with the top-spec being priced slightly higher at Rs 69,930, (ex-showroom (Delhi) and gets the Red and Yellow paint scheme (for the top-end version).

Thoughts On The Yamaha Fascino 125 Fi Price Hike

The scooter is the first 125cc product from the Japanese brand in the Indian market. The new 125cc Fi engine produces more power and gives better fuel efficiency. However, hiking the price by this much will not really bother people much. Also, the scooter will lock horns with the TVS NTorq 125, Suzuki Access 125, Honda Grazia and the Honda Activa 125.
