Yamaha India has launched the Darknight edition of its popular scooter, the Fascino, at Rs 56,793, ex-showroom Delhi. Compared to the standard edition, this new variant commands a premium of Rs 1500, thanks to the black colour scheme with black and silver sticker work. Other than these aesthetic changes, the scooter remains unchanged.
Just last month Yamaha updated its entire scooter portfolio with UBS, and the Fascino additionally received a new colour, ‘Season Green,’ as well. For the uninitiated, UBS stands for Unified Braking System, which is Yamaha’s jargon for Combined Braking System (CBS). This feature automatically applies the front brake partially when the rear brake is applied. With the introduction of the Darknight edition, the total colour choices for the Fascino stand at seven. The scooter is powered by a 113cc air-cooled engine with 7.2PS and 8.1Nm on tap.
Interestingly, Yamaha’s motorcycles - the YZF-R15 Version 3.0, SZ-RR, and Saluto RX also have ‘Darknight’ editions on offer currently, and Yamaha intends to introduce this colour variant to their other products as well. Here’s the Japanese brand’s official statement regarding the launch:
