The Yamaha Fascino was launched in December 2019 in the latest 125 cc avatar. This model replaced the earlier 110 cc unit and also marked Yamaha's entry in the bigger 125 cc scooter segment in the country. Yamaha then went on to launching the sportier and funkier Ray ZR 125 and Street Rally 125.
The TVS NTorq has always been a very sport-oriented scooter which is highly acclaimed for some of its best-in-class features. It was launched back in February 2018 and has retained its spot as one of the strongest-selling scooters in its category. The NTorq is known for its unique and sporty styling, long-list of features, sharp handling dynamics and much more.
But it looks like that Yamaha has finally cracked the code by adding a more powerful engine to the Fascino which has worked wonders and upped its charm.
