In an unexpected move, Yamaha has increased its bike prices once again, delivering a late Independence Day gift that may not be well-received by the public. This price hike follows a previous announcement made in March and has pushed the prices of Yamaha motorcycles to new heights, with the top-end model now costing Rs. 456,000.
Here’s a breakdown of the new prices:
|Model||Old Price (Rs.)||New Price (Rs.)||Hike (Rs.)|
|YB 125Z DX||408,500||423,500||15,000|
|YBR 125G (Matte Gray)||439,000||456,000||17,000|
This marks the fifth price hike by Yamaha, with each increase being substantial. Last year, the company raised bike prices seven times, and due to ongoing economic challenges, dealers and industry experts anticipate further price increases in the coming year.
As a result of these frequent price hikes, brand-new Yamaha motorcycles have become less affordable for many potential buyers. The public has called for government intervention in addressing this issue, but so far, there has been no response.
