Currently, the Japanese manufacturer is selling Yamaha Ray 113 cc which is priced around Rs. 46000. But upcoming Yamaha Neo will surprise you for sure as the expected price of the scooter is around Rs. 30000. It’s a 50 cc bike that may sound bit fussy but 49.2 cc displacement is good enough for city ride. Engine generates 2.09 kW power at 6750 rpm and 2.98 Nm torque which may not sound too impressive but remember it’s a cost effective scooter.
