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. The hike in production cost for launching BS VI variants may impact the pricing of the two wheelers varying between 10%-15% on average depending upon the product features.
The company however, will standardize 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selected two wheeler models like ‘Side stand switch’.This feature prevents the engine to start till the side stand is withdrawn completely.Yamaha will continue to work towards providing innovative technologies & exciting products for the Indian market.
