Yamaha scooter prices hiked in India – Fascino 125, Ray ZR 125 & Aerox 155

Written by Kanad Kalasur

Yamaha India has hiked the prices for all of its scooters. All three models – RayZR 125, Fascino 125 and Aerox 155 to a price hike  varying from INR 800 to INR 1,500.

Price hike details

The price hikes are not very significant and should not affect any customer’s purchase decisions. The 125cc scooters received a price hike of INR 800, while the Aerox got a price bump of INR 1500.

However, the price increase hasn’t been accompanied by any mechanical or cosmetic updates. Neither have any features been added or deleted. Just like the recent price hike of the Yamaha motorcycles, this hike too is due to the rising input costs. Due to inflation and supply chain issues, including shortage of semiconductors, could be attributed to the same.

Ray ZR:

Compared to the old Ray, it makes 30 percent more power while the fuel economy is claimed to get gains of 16 percent. The bike weighs 99 kg, 4 kg less than the older model.
