Along with the introduction of the new YZF-R15 Version 3.0 (155 CC) MotoGP Limited Edition and the FZ-S FI 2.0 with rear disc brake and two new colour options, India Yamaha Motor also announced the beginning of the deliveries of the Cygnus Ray ZR Street Rally Edition. The scooter was launched in India in July 2018 at INR 57,898 (ex-showroom Delhi).
The new Yamaha Cygnus Ray ZR Street Rally features sharp, sleek, swift and stylish machine persona. The new ‘Street Rally’ edition adopts a newly designed ‘Wing Style fairing’ (front fairing) inspired from Yamaha MT-09 which, along with serving as the wind deflector, also enhances the sporty look. The new ‘Knuckle Guard’ protects from windblasts on the handle grip and the movable front fender protects from mud splatter.
The characterized ‘Rising Air Tail’ along with the sharp, sporty mirrors and fully digital meter comes along with ‘roller rocker arm’ that is claimed to reduce horsepower loss and offer ‘easy-to-use power’ settings in extremely low speed ranges.
The scooter comes with bold graphics and colour combinations that should appeal to the young buyers. The colour options include Racing Blue and Rally Red. Other feature includes a telescopic suspension, tubeless tires, 170 mm hydraulic disk brake upfront, and digital console. Storage solutions includes a 21-litre seat storage room and front pocket which can fit a 500 ml bottle.
The Ray ZR Street Rally is powered with an 113cc, air-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, 2-valve, 113cc “BLUE CORE” engine with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The engine is tuned to deliver 7.1 PS of maximum power @ 7,500 rpm and 8.1 Nm of peak torque @ 5,000 rpm.
