Yamaha is readying the BS6 versions of its entire product range in our market. The retail of the BS6 compliant models will start from November 2019. Leaked documents revealed that the BS6 versions of the Yamaha R15 and FZ series will be less powerful than the current models. Yamaha is also readying the facelift version of the Fascino scooter, which has already been spotted testing.
The updated Yamaha Fascino will receive significant design changes and new features. It will come with re-styled headlamps, tail-lamp cluster and newly styled turn indicators at the back. It also gets an external fuel filler cap, which is a nice addition to the scooter.
The popular lifestyle scooter will receive new grab rails, better cushioned seats and re-vised front apron. The scooter is expected to receive LED daytime running lights. The current scooter comes with steel wheels, which could be changed in the facelift. The higher variant of the 2020 Yamaha Fascino could receive alloy wheels. The overall profile will remain identical to the outgoing model.
The biggest change will be made under the skin. It will receive a BSVI compliant engine, which could receive electronic fuel injection system to meet the new norms. The scooter is powered by a 113cc air-cooled engine that is capable of producing 7.2bhp of power and 8.1Nm of torque. The fuel injection unit could increase the power figures along with raised fuel efficiency.
The standard variant will receive drum brakes at both ends with CBS (Combi-braking system) as standard. The high-end variant could receive front disc brake. The 2020 Yamaha Fascino will rival the likes of Honda Activa 5G and TVS Jupiter. The new scooter is expected to be priced around Rs 62,000, which is around 5,000 more than the current model.
