It has emerged that Yamaha Motor India, the Indian subsidiary of the Japanese bike maker giant, is busy with the development of a new 110cc motorcycle to take on the likes of Honda Dream Yuga, Hero Passion X-Pro and the Suzuki Hayate.
The upcoming 110cc motorcycle from Yamaha India will also be sold in bike markets of other developing countries. Details on the new bike are scarce but what’s know is that India will become an export hub for this bike and the new 110cc commuter motorcycle would arrive in 2 years of time.
It may be noted that Yamaha India has struggled achieving respectable sales figures for its commuter bikes and the Crux, the Crux-R and the Alba 110cc commuter motorcycles could hardly ever manage to post decent numbers on the sales charts. The YBR110, the current 110cc offering from Yamaha India, too isn’t doing very well in the very competitive commuter bike market of India. The pricing would be the USP of the upcoming Yamaha 110cc bike and the bike could have an ex showroom price of less than INR 40000. It is being said that Yamaha is also working on developing the world’s least priced commuter motorcycle. This bike could have an ex showroom price of less than INR 28,000. This bike too would be exported out of India and would take anything from 1 to 2 years to be launched.
