Yamaha Motor Europe has launched the D'elight in the European scooter market. By introducing the D'elight, Yamaha aims the both young men and women riders. The scooter is stylish enough and crafted just for being premium-looking urban class machine.
The D'elight is powered by a 114cc, Single cylinder, air-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, 2-valves engine. It delivers a peak power of 7.2 Ps at 7,000 rpm and a peak torque of 7.6 Nm @ 5,500 rpm. The machine is run by V-Belt Automatic transmission.
Fuel Injection is the fuel system used in the D'elight, while Electric starter system and TCI ignition power the scooter.
Yamaha hasn't compromised anything on its comfy level. It is equipped with a 80 mm Telescopic fork front suspension and a 70 mm Unit Swing rear suspension. While a hydraulic single disc with 180 mm brakes the front wheel, the rear wheel is taken care by a 130 mm Drum.
The bike weighs only 98 kg and has a decent fuel tank of 4.4 liters.
The engine of the European machine, D'elight, seems to be taken from the Ray, which is successfully sold in India. Though the Ray 's engine slightly produces more power in papers, the performance will be almost the same as the D'elight weighs only lesser mass.
What makes the D'elight a completely new scooter is its looks and features. Yup! It looks classy. Well, it's sporty in some angles as well. One thing is sure that it'll surely attract both genders. Men or women, you can't skip it at least without making a stare rather than a mere glance.
To make it a fashionable stuff, Yamaha has moulded tons of features with impressive design. From the retro-style headlight, white-faced instruments, stylish taillight, underseat storage, open glove box, and to the flip-out passenger footrests tell a tale of timeless fashion.The turn indicators at front is simply awesome. Ornamenting even betterly, the alloy wheels get themselves bulged out for spectators. The front disc brake adds a sporty touch too.
However, it will be challenging for Yamaha D'elight to stand top and pick up the market where Vespa scooters are doing great business.
The D'elight comes with the same engine, but with power differences, that is used in the Ray and Ray Z.
