Yamaha Ray Z to have only minor cosmetic changes. Pics & Specs

Added in: News


In line with its plan of keeping the focus on scooter segments of Indian two wheelers market, Yamaha India will unveil a new automatic scooter tomorrow.

In what seems to be a classic case of expectations versus reality, several thousands of biking aficionados who have been eagerly waiting for the launch of the speculated Yamaha YZF-R25 will soon see the bike maker unveiling a new variant of the Ray automatic scooter.

Christened as the Ray Z, the new variant could be marketed as a more ‘male oriented’ version of the Ray automatic scooter. It may be noted that currently, the Ray is the only auto scoot that Yamaha sells in India and is basically targeted at the female auto scooter buying lot and is being offered in colour shades which are generally favoured by the fairer sex.

Seen here are some of the first ever pics of the upcoming Yamaha Ray Z and to be really honest, we are heart-broken. Unlike what we have been hoping, the Ray Z does not get a more powerful engine or a muscular styling. Instead, what it actually gets are some decals and a small windscreen. The Ray Z, in all probability, will be to the Ray what the FZ-S is to the FZ-16.


Mechanically, the scooter remains unchanged and continues to be powered by a 113cc motor that has a max power output of 7.1PS.


Do not get us wrong as we really have nothing against the Ray or the Ray Z. However, the complaint that we do have from Yamaha is that our expectations from the world class bike maker are HUGE and it is high time that the Indian subsidiary of the famous bike maker should do something about fulfilling them.

Stay tuned for more info on the upcoming Yamaha Ray Z.
