Yamaha Alpha

Yamaha Alpha was launched in 2014 Auto Expo and competes against the Honda Activa as well as TVS Jupiter. The scooter is powered by a 113 cc, air-cooled motor, which churns out 7 hp power and 8.1 Nm torque, mated to a CVT gearbox. The scooter has shared quite some of its mechanistic details with Ray. It weighs at 104 kilograms and is quite a good option for college-goers.

Yamaha has huge plans for 2015 and it has its eyes laid on motorcycles. The company also has plans for a 125 cc scooter, but before that the company will launch R25 at 3 lakhs INR. However, this sudden recall will definitely hinder the momentum of the company. Definitely, Yamaha will remove the glitches as soon as possible and return its focus for the new calendar.
