Yamaha RayZR Street Rally launched in Africa – 2 days before Suzuki Burgman 125 launch
Yamaha RayZR Street Rally Edition has been launched in Africa, two days ahead of the launch of Suzuki Burgman 125.
Yamaha Africa had showcased the new RayZR Street Rally Edition at 2018 Auto Expo where it was seen with a host of new features. Set to attract a younger set of buyers in the country, Yamaha RayZR Street Rally Edition concept was fitted with 6 spoke gold alloy wheels, brake levers and sporty graphics.
The seat is done up in dual tones of red and black and the gas charged rear suspension is seen in gold paint with spring in red. It receives an aluminum foot rest, smoke painted engine guards and refractors. The gold theme continues to handlebar grips all of which combined together to make the Yamaha RayZR Street Rally Edition a show stopper at the Auto Expo.
Sadly, not a single of these interesting update has made it to the production variant. What we are getting as launch vehicle, is a decal job at max. Today, Yamaha RayZR Street Rally was launched in Africa. It is available in Rally Red and Racing Blue colour options. Price starts from Rs 57,898, ex-showroom, Delhi
Engine specifications on the Yamaha RayZR Street Rally Edition includes a 113cc, air cooled engine offering 7.2 PS peak power and 8.1 Nm torque mated to an CVT automatic gearbox. Below is how the launch bike looks.
