Yamaha Issues Mega Recall for Ray ZR 125 and Fascino 125 Scooters

  • 3,00,000 units recalled
  • Brake lever may be faulty
  • Replacement to be carried out free of cost

In a significant move, Yamaha has announced a massive recall of its popular 125cc hybrid scooters in India. The Japanese brand has issued a voluntary recall for 3,00,000 units of the Ray ZR 125 and Fascino 125 models, citing potential issues with the brake lever function. In their respective categories the two Yamaha scooters rival TVS NTorq, Honda Activa, Hero Maestro Edge and others. 

Affected Production Period

The recall applies to select units of the Ray ZR 125 and Fascino 125 scooters manufactured between January 1, 2022, and January 4, 2024. Yamaha has stated that during this period, there may have been instances where the brake lever's functionality was compromised, necessitating immediate action.

Checking Eligibility for Recall

Owners of the affected scooters can check their eligibility for the recall on Yamaha's official website. By visiting the 'service section' and accessing the 'SC 125 Voluntary Recall' page, customers can enter their vehicle's chassis number to determine if their scooter is part of the recall.

Free Replacement at Authorized Service Centers

For customers whose scooters are eligible for the recall, Yamaha has assured that the potentially faulty part will be replaced free of cost at their nearest authorized service centre. This gesture underscores Yamaha's commitment to customer safety and satisfaction.

Shared Platform and Specifications

The Fascino 125 and Ray ZR 125 are built on the same platform and share identical specifications. Both scooters are powered by a 125cc engine with hybrid technology, delivering 8.04bhp and 10.3Nm of torque. They weigh 99kg (kerb) and feature a 5.2-liter fuel tank. The scooters ride on a 12-10-inch alloy wheel combination with telescopic forks and a monoshock suspension system.

Braking System and Safety Features

In terms of braking, both models come equipped with a drum setup at both ends, complemented by a combined braking system for enhanced safety. The top-spec variants offer an additional disc brake at the front for improved braking performance.

Yamaha's Proactive Approach

By taking swift action and issuing a voluntary recall, Yamaha has demonstrated its commitment to addressing potential issues promptly. This proactive approach not only safeguards customer interests but also reinforces the brand's reputation for quality and reliability.
