2021 Yamaha Fascino 125, India’s first of hybrid scooter, unveiled – Times of India


CHENNAI: Yamaha Motor India is introducing hybrid assist with its range of scooters. The Fascino 125 Fi Hybrid, unveiled on Friday alongwith the all-new FX-Z, will be launched soon.
The Hybrid is Yahama’s first electric power-assist two-wheeler and will be first of its kind in the Indian market as well.
The new Fascino 125 Fi Hybrid will be available in both disc and drum brake versions.

The model will have a Smart Motor Generator (SMG) System that adopts the Hybrid System. This functions as an electric motor to give a power assist when you accelerate from a stop, reducing the insecurity caused by the wobbliness during start-outs in tandem riding or during uphill climbs.
The SMG also serves as a motor by reversing the direction of electricity release, including a quiet engine start system cut off switch which is a standard and mandatory feature for all Yamaha two wheelers in India.
During the event, Motofumi Shitara, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India group of companies announced the company plans to expand this technology to Ray ZR 125 Fi.
The Facino 125 Hybrid has a maximum torque of 10.3 N m at 5,000rpm and offers Bluetooth Connectivity with Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X APP. The app offers a host of features like answer back, locate my vehicle, riding history, parking record and hazard alerts.
