Yamaha launched the new RayZR 125 Fi Hybrid in India, its 125cc scooter that now comes with power assist by Smart motor generator.
The all new RayZR 125 Fi with Hybrid power assist is powered by air cooled, fuel injected (Fi), 125cc blue core engine that, according to the company, produces 30% more power and 16% higher fuel economy compared to the previous 113cc scooter.
Furthermore, the body weights only 99 kg, which is 4 kg lighter than Yamaha’s earlier scooters. With that, you have a great acceleration, better handling and better mileage.
The “Smart motor generator (SMG)” fitted to the new RayZR 125 Fi Hybrid brings a quieter engine start without the need for a separate conventional electric starter. The SMG along with the engine produces 8.2 HP of maximum power and up to 10.3 Nm of torque (0.6 Nm higher than the previous RayZR 125FI).
How does the SMG works
The SMG works like an electric motor, to give a power assist when you accelerate from a stop, reducing the insecurity caused by the wobble during start-outs in tandem riding or during uphill climbs.
About three seconds after starting, or when the throttle is cut back or the engine rpm exceeds the prescribed level, the Power Assist function is cancelled. Also, an indicator light in the instrument cluster will inform the rider when the Power Assist (Hybrid System) is in operation.
The SMG also serves as a motor by reversing the direction of electricity release, providing benefits that include a Quiet Engine Start System and Automatic Stop & Start System.
Comfort and functionality
The Yamaha RayZR 125 Fi Hybrid also comes equipped with Side Stand Engine Cut off Switch which is a standard and mandatory feature for all Yamaha two wheelers in India.
Taking the style & convenience quotient a notch above, the disc brake version of the bike showcases the following:
- Advanced LED headlight, daytime running lights (DRL) and LED taillight
- A digital instrument cluster with an indicator to show when the Hybrid System is operating
- 190mm front disc brake with “Unified Brake System (UBS)”
- Bluetooth Connectivity with Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X APP
Addition of the Bluetooth Connectivity feature via Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X App will further help riders to stay connected with the machine and provide them with host of convenient features like Answer Back, Locate my Vehicle, Riding History, Parking Record & Hazard.
Apart from this, the drum brake version shares a host of common features with the disc brake variant, which include – Side stand engine cut-off switch, Multi-function key with seat opener function, Large 21-litre under seat storage compartment, Foldable convenience hook, Maintenance-free battery, and a 90/90-12 front tire and a 110/90-10 rear tire, optional USB Charger.
