2012 Yamaha Scooters

Expected: mid-2012 Price: Rs. 50,000-80,000


After having given some bumper motorcycle products in recent years, Yamaha India is now shifting its focus onto the scooter segment in the country, which is huge and growing at a solid pace. Currently, Yamaha is doing the necessary research on what scooters to bring into India from its huge scooter range. The scooters will be introduced in 2012 in India and they will be locally made at Yamaha’s current production facilities in Surajpur and Faridabad. Expect the scooters to be just as stylish and upmarket as their motorcycles sold in the country, however, which also means that the products will also demand certain premium over its rivals. The made-for-India Yamaha scooter has been developed in Japan, similar to the first generation YZF-R15. The company has plans to invest about Rs. 10 crore in setting up a dedicated assembly line for its new scooter models.
