After updating its motorcycle range with BS-VI stage-II emission norms, Yamaha is all set to introduce the same update for its scooter range, which includes Fascino and Ray ZR models. Both the 125cc scooters from Yamaha will now come equipped with an onboard diagnostics (OBD) system for tracking real-time emission levels.

A leaked type-approval document from ICAT shows that the Yamaha Fascino (Standard and S variants) and Yamaha Ray ZR (Standard and Street Rally variants) are now compliant with Bharat Stage-VI stage-II emission norms.
All the variants of these scooters now come with an OBD system (as mentioned above) as the only add-on under this new revision. Yamaha will also introduce a few new color options for both the scooters, just like it did for its range of motorcycles a few days ago.
