Yamaha has always been a smart engine maker, one of its example is its mini-super-bike R15 that has a small 150cc engine but produces a maximum power of 17bhp. By putting its efforts together for this scooter, they have created an intelligent Air-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, 2-valve, single-cylinder engine that has the displacement of 113cc. The engine has been tuned to crank out a superior power of 7bhp at 7,500rpm, while generating a peak torque of 8.1Nm at 5,000rpm. The engine output is quite low but it results in better fuel efficiency. Claimed mileage of the scooter is upto 62Kmpl, which is highly competitive and worth for a 110cc automatic scooter.

Yamaha Alpha is one of the best offerings in its respective category, it has elegant appearance, adequate specifications and class aura. It been coupled with the Telescopic forks at the front and Unit swing at the rear that makes the suspension system sound and ascends the stability and control of the rider. The proper riding style with the fine dimensions not only makes it easy to ride but also gives more confidence to the rider to master it. The 90/100-10 (53J) tyres loaded at both ends of the scooter and are equipped with drum brakes for substantial braking. As it is a 110cc one, it is not imparted with a disc brake, however other makers in the same category are providing the same at the front wheel for enhanced safety of the rider. Low weight of 104kg helps the rider to handle the scooter in uncertain conditions. For females also, it is easy to ride and handle thanks to its light weight.
Yamaha Alpha comes with bright headlights that helps the rider to safely carry on his journey at nights. The braking of the scooter is fine but responsiveness can be enhanced with the allocation of a front disc brake.
