“The market for scooter is increasing significantly in Nepal and Yamaha has always been in the forefront in introducing the latest products to cater to the demands and expectations of consumers,” MAW said in a statement issued today.
Marketed for comfort, space and mileage, MAW is selling the 113 cc Alpha as ‘The Most Comfortable Scooter’.
MAW says the Alpha has the longest seat -- 800 mm -- in the segment, which it says allows both the driver and the pillion rider to travel in comfort. The seats are also built slim, making it scooter for their legs to reach the ground, MAW says. The scooter has a 250 mm leg space.
The Alpha has a storage capacity of 21 liters, which, according to MAW, is again the largest in the segment.
In the statement, MAW says the Alpha’s mileage has been certified at 62 kmpl by the Automotive Research Association of India.
The scooter is being offered at Rs 169,900 across the country and is covered by two years of warranty. Eight free services are offered.
The Alpha is available in five colours -- Magical Magenta, Graceful Grey, Radiant White, Brilliant Black and Fiery Red.
As part of the introduction of the new scooter, Yamaha showrooms around the country will offer test rides and instant gifts.
Other scooters in MAW’s stable include the Yamaha Ray and Ray-Z.
