India Yamaha Motor is showcasing a special colour variant of the Yamaha Fascino at the ongoing Auto Expo 2016 in Greater Noida. The model has been custom made for the Auto Expo and would not be launched in the market.
The Yamaha Fascino was launched in May 2015 in five colours – Tuxedo Black, Haute White, Cool Cobalt, Sassy Cyan and Rogue Red, all of which are mono-tone options. The Fascino X Special Edition features a dual tone theme with matte black as the base colour and copper tone for detailing.
There is no mechanical change in the Yamaha Fascino X compared to the model that is on sale. It is powered by the 113 cc single-cylinder air-cooled carbureted engine with SOHC, two valves and Yamaha Blue Core technology, that produces 7.1 PS at 7,500 rpm and 8.1 Nm at 5,000 rpm. It is claimed to return a mileage of 66 km/l under Yamaha’s standard test conditions.
The 103 kg scooter measures 1,185 mm in length, 675 mm in width, 1,120 mm in height and 1,270 mm in wheelbase. The fuel tank capacity of the Fascino is 5.2 litres. It is equipped with drum brakes and shod with 90/100-10 53J tyres.
