– Yamaha introduces new scooters on September 21st
– Will be a maxi scooter
– Could be the most expensive Yamaha scooter in India
Yamaha India has posted a teaser photo revealing an upcoming product that will debut along with the new Yamaha R15 V3 on September 21st.
According to our sources, this would be the first Yamaha India maxi scooter and will likely be powered by the same 155cc engine as the R15. While it probably gives off less power than the R15, it could still be the most powerful scooter in the country. Now Yamaha’s international range of maxi scooters is getting premium features like full LED lighting, keyless ignition, ABS and even a traction control system. However, it is likely that the upcoming Yamaha maxi scooter will not have most of these features.
Nonetheless, we can expect Yamaha to equip it with full LED lighting for the headlights and taillights, a semi-digital instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity, a fairly large storage space under the seat and single-channel ABS. While not many details are currently available, we don’t have to wait long as the reveal is only a few days away.
We expect that the upcoming Yamaha scooter will also earn a significant premium over other maxi scooters on the market. Since it is expected to come with premium features and a tech-laden 155cc engine, the Yamaha will likely cost between 1.3 and 1.4 lakh Rs (ex-showroom).
