Addressing the needs of those looking for sporting scooters in India, Yamaha has launched a new variant of the Yamaha Cygnus Ray ZR. It’s called the Street Rally edition, is priced at Rs 57,898 (ex-showroom), and is bound to be available from the last week of July.

First let’s get what’s unchanged out of the way. Like the standard edition, it also uses a 113 cc, 4-stroke engine and a CVT gearbox. The list of standard fitments on the Yamaha Cygnus Ray ZR includes alloy wheels, 170 mm front disc brake, 21-litre under-seat storage, and the slightly unconventional-but-likeable design.

The addition of ‘Street Rally’ to the monicker means the handle now come with knuckle guards, MT-09-inspired Wing Style fairing is standard, and so are two new paint schemes: Rally Red and Racing Blue.

Yamaha Motor India’s Senior VP for Sales and Marketing, Roy Kurian said, “Yamaha’s Cygnus Ray ZR ‘Street Rally’ Edition perfectly combines power and style that makes it an aspirational buy. Continuing with Yamaha’s legacy to provide technologically advanced, sporty and stylish products, ‘Street Rally’ will bring excitement to scooter customers who look for sporty scooters with easy manoeuvring along with smooth power delivery. The globally known ‘Unique style of Yamaha’ that outlines any product innovation including the ‘Street Rally’ edition will help the brand to keep up its incremental ascent in the Indian two wheeler market.”
