Yamaha has unveiled the new Fascino 125 Fi Hybrid scooter in the Indian market. The new Fascino 125 comes with a retro-scooter design but offers loads of contemporary features. But the highlight of the new model is a new hybrid system that provides power assist to the internal combustion engine.
2021 Yamaha Fascino 125 Fi Hybrid: How Does the Hybrid System Work?
The Fascino 125 Fi Hybrid comes with a Smart Motor Generator (SMG) System as standard. The new Hybrid system comes with power assist to the petrol engine when you accelerate from a stop. The Smart Motor Generator (SMG) also does the duty to silently start the internal combustion engine by reversing the direction of electricity.
This combination reduces the instability during start-outs in tandem riding or during uphill climbs. The power assist is cancelled after three seconds of acceleration or immediately when the throttle is cut back. The rider is also notified of the Hybrid System operation using a light on the instruments cluster. The new system also gives the Fascino 125 Fi the ability to have a silent and seamless Automatic Start-Stop system.
