"Our premium segment bikes such as FZ series and YZF-R15 are doing very well. Our powerful commuter SZ bike and entry level YBR 125 and YBR 110 bikes also continue to grow at a brisk pace which shows that we have been able to meet the customers’ expectations with a strong product portfolio. We expect our strong showing to continue in the coming months."

India Yamaha Motor is refining the motorcycling culture in India by organizing innovative racing events, riding clinics and safe riding programs; the fifth & final round of its Yamaha R15 One Make Race Championship is scheduled on Dec. 4 – 5 in Chennai.

Yamaha is also focusing its efforts on strengthening its motorcycle dealer network in tier-2 & tier-3 cities and increasing sub-dealers in rural areas too.
