Yamaha launched ‘Street Rally’ for sporty scooter buyers


The new ‘Street Rally’ edition is available in two different colours – Rally Red and Racing Blue, and adopts a newly designed ‘Wing Style fairing’ (front fairing) inspired from Yamaha MT-09 which along with serving as the wind deflector, will also enhance the sporty look. The new ‘Knuckle Guard’ protects from windblasts on the handle grip and the movable front fender protects from mud splatter, while both adds up to its sporty appeal. The characterized ‘Rising Air Tail’ along with the sharp, sporty mirrors and fully digital meter comes along with ‘roller rocker arm’ that reduces horsepower loss and ‘easy-to-use power’ settings in extremely low speed ranges.

The Cygnus Ray ZR ‘Street Rally’ Edition continues to draw power from an air-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, 2-valve, 113cc “BLUE CORE” engine with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) unit, which provides both smooth initial acceleration and pickup. Presence of 170 mm diameter front disc brake and alloy wheels reduces the inertial moment of the steering assembly and thus, contributes to light, agile handling characteristics. Additionally, it also offers 1) large under seat storage room (21 litres capacity) with front pocket enough to fit a 500 ml bottle 2) key secure grip system 3) Edgy and high rising tail light, two-level raised seat provides great comfort to the rider while reducing fatigue.
