On the feature front, the 2021 Fascino 125 gets an LED headlight with DRLs, LED tail lamp, a full-digital console, and Bluetooth connectivity that lets you pair your smartphone via Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X APP. This, in turn, lets you answer calls, locate your vehicle, and access riding history. The Fascino 125 also gets a side-stand engine cut-off switch and an optional USB charger.
Yamaha hasn’t tinkered much with the Fascino 125’s aesthetics. It is offered in a standard variant with three new colours -- Vivid Red Special, Matt Black Special, Cool Blue Metallic -- apart from the existing options: Dark Matt Blue, Suave Copper, Yellow Cocktail, Cyan Blue, Vivid Red, and Metallic Black. The Deluxe variant too gets three new colours: Vivid Red, Cool Blue Metallic, and Yellow Cocktail.
The 2021 RayZR 125 gets hybrid power assist, LED headlight, USB charging port, and a new instrument console. It also features Bluetooth connectivity with SMS alerts and a smartphone app to check fuel consumption. The 2021 RayZR 125 will be offered in two variants like before: Standard and the Street Rally.
Yamaha is expected to reveal the prices of the new scooters by June end or early July. The 2021 Fascino 125 Hybrid and the RayZR 125 are likely to carry a premium given the number of changes they’ve undergone. Currently, the Fascino 125 is priced from Rs 72,030 and the RayZR 125 from Rs 73,330.
