India Yamaha Motor inaugurated its Yamaha Training School (YTS) at the premises of Don Bosco Yuva Kendra at Nangloi Road, Najafgarh in New Delhi. Yamaha and Don Bosco Yuva Kendra jointly aim to create a ‘Centre of Excellence’ where youngsters will receive two-wheeler technical training that will enable them to become expert two-wheeler technicians. Technical experts from Yamaha are conducting the YTS program on behalf of India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd.
