Reported by Motorbeam, Wednesday, February 29, 2012, Yamaha decided to assemble a new model locally in India. That was done so that the price is competitive and not have to pay import tax.
"We continue to make observations, 250 cc motorcycle market continues to grow. Because consumers in India continue to increase the level of riding the motorcycle 250 cc. This bike plan will use 100 percent local components India," said Yamaha India National Business Head, Roy Kurian .
He added that a survey of Yamaha, a lot of consumers are not satisfied with the 250 cc motorcycle in the market today. This momentum will be used Yamaha to fill a niche market that has not been filled to overflowing. Yamaha is launching the 250 cc motor sport this year.
Then, if the motor will also be released in Indonesia?
