Yamaha Fascino Beats TVS NTorq in February 2020
According to recent reports, Yamaha Fascino was able to witness a sales figure of 25,709 units in February 2020, which is 72% higher when compared to the same month last year. The brand has officially moved out of the 100-110cc segment of the scooters by introducing the Yamaha Fascino 125 and Ray ZR 125, both of which have been able to get the already declining sales up by a notch.
The Yamaha Fascino 110 will not be available to the customers after April 1, 2020, since the scooter is equipped with a BS4-compliant engine and the dealerships are only allowed to sell the BS6 products under the brand’s portfolio after the said date. The total units registered by Yamaha Fascino are a combination of the total sales witnessed by both Fascino 110 and the Fascino 125.
The sales number of the Yamaha Fascino has surpassed the sales figure of TVS NTorq, which stands at 22,804 units, witnessing a total YoY increase by 39% when compared to the 16,370 units registered in the same month in 2019.
Another competitor in the 125cc scooter segment, the Suzuki Access 125 has been able to keep its record on track by registering a total of 50,103 units in February 2020 and witnessing an overall growth by 4% when compared to the same month last year. The sales numbers for the King of the 125cc scooter segment, the Honda Activa 125 have not been revealed as of yet.
Powering the Yamaha Fascino 125 is a 125cc fuel-injected engine that is good for a maximum power of 8.2HP and a peak torque of 9.7Nm. The torque offered by the 125cc engine on the scooter is higher by 1.6Nm when compared to the one offered by the 113cc engine available on the last-gen Fascino variant.
