OBD 2 compliant Yamaha Fascino 125 launch soon, details leaked
Having updated its motorcycle range to meet OBD 2 compliance, Yamaha Motor India will soon introduce its updated scooter range as well and ahead of the launch, details of the 2023 Yamaha Fascino 125 have been leaked online. As per RTO documents, the 125 cc scooter is now equipped with an onboard diagnostics (OBD 2) system.
This is in line with future emission norms and the OBD 2 device monitors emission levels on the vehicle in real-time. Not just the Yamaha Fascino 125 but the document also includes the Cygnus Ray ZR and the Cygnus Ray ZR Street Rally. Do note that Yamaha dropped the Cynus name from its scooters with the previous update and the models are badged as Ray ZR and Ray ZR Street Rally.
