Yamaha has been having a good run when it comes to scooters in the Indian market, thanks to the success of the retro-styled Fascino and the Ray-Z range of scooters. Now, the Japanese manufacturer has rolled out a new variant of the Cygnus Alpha in order to attract even more customers. The new variant now comes equipped with disc brakes and will be available across all Yamaha dealerships at a price tag of Rs 52,556 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The company has also launched two new color options for the Alpha – Radiant Cyan and Marvel Black.
According to Yamaha, the Cygnus Alpha is developed to target customers who are in search of a scooter which will fulfil the needs of a family, with its concept of ‘easy to go and high utility city mover’ and is capable of giving a claimed mileage of 66 km/l, thanks to the Blue Core Technology that it comes equipped with.
The Alpha is powered by an air-cooled 113 cc, four stroke single cylinder engine and boasts storage capacity of an impressive 21 litres. Yamaha rolling out a variant with disc brake might end up giving the Alpha model the attention its other siblings have been having, given the rising demand of disc brakes among Indian buyers.
