India Design Council Awards India Design Mark Certification For Yamaha YZF-R3 and Cygnus Ray-ZR

India Yamaha Motor has awarded the India Design Mark Certification by the India Design Council for its sports bike, the YZF-R3 and for scooter offering, the Cygnus Ray-ZR. The company has notified about this appreciation in a press conference.

For a reminisce, it is brand’s sixth consecutive win since 2012. Back in time, Yamaha has collected this I Mark certification for different products such as YZF-R15 version 2.0 (2012), Cygnus Ray (2013), Cygnus Ray Z (2014), Cygnus Alpha (2015), FZ-S FI version 2.0 (2015), Yamaha Fascino scooter and Saluto 125 bike (2016).

Developed on an all new chassis, the Yamaha YZF-R3 is underpinned with a fresh 321cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, in-line 2-cylinder, fuel-injected engine unit for high speed cruising.

While announcing this achievement, Mr. Roy Kurian, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Yamaha Motor India Sales said, “Yamaha is postulated to come up with exciting products along with excellence in design, style and comfort that revs heart. The certification will induce trust among its customers and will also generate the desired brand worth in terms of winning new customers.
