Yamaha has unveiled the Fascino 125 Hybrid for the Indian market. The Yamaha Fascino is the first scooter in India to feature hybrid technology. Yamaha has also revealed the Ray ZR hybrid scooter and prices for these scooters will be revealed soon.

Yamaha first launched the Fascino back in May 2015. Back then, it was powered by a 113cc engine with an output of 7bhp and 8.1Nm. The brand then launched the next-gen BS6 model. With this, Yamaha debuted in the 125cc segment.

Now, the Japanese manufacturer has unveiled the Fascino Hybrid. The mild-hybrid technology features a Starter Motor Generator (SMG) that plays a vital role in providing power assist to the engine whenever required.

The SMG will provide an electric power assist to the engine when climbing inclines at low speeds or when accelerating quickly from a standstill. This system shuts off after a certain rpm is crossed. It also shuts off whenever power assistance is not needed.

Apart from the addition of the SMG, the overall engine remains the same. The current Yamaha Fascino’s 125cc fuel-injected engine has been retained.

Engine Spec: 8.2bhp 6,500rpm | 10.3Nm 5,500rpm

While the power output remains just as much as the outgoing model, the torque output has increased by 0.3Nm.

Yamaha Fascino Hybrid Mileage

The Yamaha Fascino 125 FI in its current guise is already one of the most fuel-efficient scooters. It returns over 55km/l in city riding conditions. With the addition of the SMG, fuel efficiency is expected to get a huge boost. And we’re sure it will cross 60km/l with ease.
