Chennai, August 14, 2019
India Yamaha Motor (IYM) Pvt Ltd, the wholly-owned subsidiary of Japan’s Yamaha Motor Company, will rejig its product portfolio to meet the new emission standards by launching BS VI compliant motorcycles and scooters. “Yamaha being a responsible manufacturer is always concerned about the environment & safety of our customers. Yamaha team is industriously working to live up to the company’s commitment and it is quite likely that the BS VI compatible Yamaha motorcycles & scooters will arrive in the market well before the recommended deadline of April 2020. To be precise, the company will rejig its line up with BS VI compatible motorcycles and scooters in several phases starting as early as November 2019 for motorcycles and January 2020 with scooters,” said Motofumi Shitara, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India Group of companies, in a statement.
According to him, since 2018, the company is focusing to strengthen its market share in the premium segment of motorcycles and scooters. Additionally, the brand’s global expertise to offer technologically innovative mobility solutions that are also environment-friendly is brought onboard to support the company’s future growth in India.
Prices of BS VI variants of motorcycles and scooters are likely to cost 10-15 per cent more depending upon the product features. Motofumi Shitara informed, “The hike in production cost for launching BS VI variants may impact the pricing of the two wheelers varying between 10-15 per cent on average depending upon the product features. The company however, will standardise offsetting benefits in selected two wheeler models like ‘side stand switch’. This feature prevents the engine to start till the side stand is withdrawn completely. Yamaha will continue to work towards providing innovative technologies & exciting products for the Indian market.”
