The overall design language of the Fascino is quite curvy and trendy, giving it a very distinctive look. The front fascia of the scooter is attractive and resembles its closest competitor, the Vespa LX 125. There is a small Yamaha decal on the front fascia, which gives a sporty look to the scooter. The Japanese manufacturer has dipped this scooter in chrome, to give it a premium look which interestingly doesn’t look over done. The side profile of the Fascino is nice with its fluidic creases and curves. The rear section of the scooter is quite quirky because of the black paint above the tail light. Yamaha should have filled that spot either by some kind of decal job or a 3D logo, just like the one on the side. The under seat storage is very good at 21-litres and can accommodate a full-face helmet.
The Fascino is powered by a 113cc air-cooled single cylinder blue core engine that produces 7bhp at 7,500rpm and maximum torque of 8.1Nm at 5,000rpm. This engine is mated to a continuous variable transmission (CVT). The Japanese manufacturer claims an ARAI fuel efficiency of 66kmpl, which is really good. However, the real world figures should be different. With a kerb weight of 103kg, the Fascino is the lightest Yamaha scooter in India.
The Yamaha Fascino is available in five colours – sassy cyan, rouge red, haute white, cool cobalt and tuxedo black. While the Yamaha Fascino is priced slightly above the Honda Activa, it’s a good option if someone is looking for more than just a regular looking scooter.
