2017 Yamaha Alpha
The Japanese still think there is some juice left in the Alpha and have given it BS-IV and AHO
After creating a stature of a maker of performance oriented motorcycles across the globe as well as in the Indian two wheeler market, Yamaha entered the automatic scooter segment in India with the Ray siblings. As per Yamaha’s self-belief and expectations, both the Ray as well as Ray Z gave a tough fight to the established scooters from its arch rivals in the 110cc automatic scooter space.
Yamaha then launched the Alpha in the Indian market which has helped its parent manufacturer in recording consistent sales in the scooter segment.
