We pit the Yamaha RayZR 125 Fi Hybrid against the Honda Dio 125, to see how they perform against each other, on paper

Yamaha RayZR 125 Fi Hybrid Vs Honda Dio 125: Image Comparison

The Yamaha RayZR 125 Fi Hybrid and Honda Dio 125 compete against each other in the 125cc sporty scooter segment. Here we compare both these 125cc Japanese scooters to find out how they perform against each other on paper.

Design

The Yamaha RayZR 125 has a unique and bold design, different from what we get to see on any other scooter. At the front, it gets a small flyscreen, a sporty-looking LED headlight with a ‘Y’ shaped DRL and motorcycle-like indicators. The headlight is surrounded by two fake air intakes that look like motorcycle tank extensions. At the rear, it gets a boxy tail section with an edgy tail light. The Street Rally variant adds hand guards, brushed metal finishes, and off-road-style block-pattern tyres for a distinctive look. The RayZR 125 also has a MotoGP edition that features a Yamaha Monster Energy paint scheme.

The Honda Dio 125, on the other hand, has a sporty and sleek design. The LED headlight looks sharp, with the indicators making it look even sharper. It also gets split LED DRLs. The rear view mirrors, though different from other Honda scooters don’t look as sporty as the RayZR. The sharp and sleek elements continue to the tail section, complementing the overall look of the scooter. The Dio 125 gets a Repsol Edition which mimics the Repsol Honda MotoGP paint scheme.

Engine

The Yamaha RayZR 125 Fi Hybrid borrows its engine from the Fascino 125 Fi Hybrid. The 125cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine, with mild-hybrid tech, produces 8.2PS at 6500rpm and 10.3Nm at 5000rpm, and is paired with a continuous variable transmission (CVT). The Honda Dio 125 has a 123.92cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine based on the Activa 125 that delivers 8.28PS and 10.4Nm, and comes mated with a continuous variable transmission (CVT).

The RayZR 125 Fi Hybrid gets a 5.2-litre fuel tank with the fuel cap placed under the seat, whereas the Dio 125 has an external fuel filler cap and a fuel tank capacity of 5.3 litres.

Underpinnings

The Yamaha RayZR 125 Fi Hybrid is equipped with a telescopic fork and a monoshock. The Drum variant gets 130mm drum brakes for both ends, whereas the disc variant features a 190mm front disc brake and 130mm drum brake at the rear. The Yamaha RayZR 125 Fi Hybrid gets 12-inch alloy wheels as standard, featuring a 90-section tyre at the front and a 110-section tyre at the rear. It boasts a 145mm ground clearance and a slightly tall seat height of 785mm.

The Honda Dio 125 also comes with a telescopic fork but gets a 3-step preload adjustable monoshock. The scooter has a front disc and rear drum brakes, and rolls on 12-inch front and 10-inch rear alloy wheels wrapped with 90-section tyres on both ends. 

Instrumentation

Both scooters come equipped with fully LCD instrument consoles. The RayZR 125 Fi Hybrid, however, gets smartphone connectivity. The console displays basic information including a speedometer, odometer, trip meter, fuel gauge and tachometer. The ‘Y Connect’ app offers calls, SMS and email alerts. The app also provides maintenance recommendations and malfunction warnings but it misses out on turn-by-turn navigation. The Dio 125’s LCD instrument cluster, along with the speedometer, odometer and basic telltale lights, also displays useful info like real-time mileage, average mileage and distance to empty. However, it lacks smartphone connectivity altogether.

Verdict

The Ray ZR 125 and the Dio 125 are both priced similarly, with the former available at a starting price of Rs 84,730 and the latter at Rs 83,400 (both prices ex-showroom Delhi). Both the scooters go head-to-head with each other, delivering similar performance. However, in terms of features, the RayZR 125 offers more than the Dio 125, as the former comes with a mild-hybrid assistance and smartphone connectivity. Hence, the RayZR is the better value-for-money scooter between the two
