    Default Very Bad News boys "Yamaha Japan may scrap plans for plant in Karachi"

    Yamaha Japan may scrap plans for plant in Karachi
    Yamaha Japan may scrap plans for plant in Karachi
    TOKYO: Yamaha Motors Japan may cancel its 150 million dollars investment plan to set up motorcycles manufacturing unit in Pakistan due to bureaucratic hurdles, sources close to the matter told The News on Friday.

    Even President Asif Ali Zardari failed to get implemented his own orders to facilitate Yamaha Motors in establishing its unit in Pakistan, sources said.

    Yamaha’s plan to set up its manufacturing plant in Karachi, for local sales and exports, was delayed due to bureaucratic snags and opposition from Dawood Yamaha, the Pakistani franchise holder.

    India has started talks with Yamaha to review its plan and initiate the same project in India, sources said.

    Yamaha may consider Indian offer due to cold response from Pakistan, sources said.


    Yamaha was waiting for a response from Pakistan for last three years, sources said. During this period Yamaha’s senior officials met with President Zardari at least twice, and President Zardari welcomed them to invest in Pakistan but the bureaucracy created hurdles for Japanese automobile giant to initiate the project in Pakistan.

    Yamaha Motor President Hiroyuki Yanagi met with President Zardari during his visit to Japan in February. Yanagi requested Zardari to remove the hurdles to Yamaha Japan’s entry in Pakistan, sources reminded.

    Minister of Industries Mir Hazar Khan Bijarani, Chairman Board of Investment Saleem Mandviwala, Secretary Industries, and other officials were present at the said meeting where President Zardari issued orders to all the concerned people to immediately help Yamaha start its project in Pakistan. But the situation remains unchanged even after four months, sources said.

    Yanagi had told the Pakistani authorities that his company would spend $150 million for setting up a new plant at 50 acres plot in Bin Qasim near Karachi. He said Yamaha would bring advanced technology to Pakistan where initially 22,000 motorcycles of 125-150 cc, per year, would be manufactured in the factory with electronic fuel injection (EFI) engines and during the next ten years its production would reach to 750,000.

    The company would also provide comprehensive training and technical education to its employees, dealers, and vendors.

    Yanagi had told the Pakistani dignitaries that 45,000 people would get direct and indirect employment from the said project, sources recalled.

    Yamaha has been in India for many years now.

    Yamaha makes bikes in India exports them to other parts of the world like Indonesia, Phillipines, Colombia, Mexico etc.

    These are the bikes that Yamaha makes in India and exports them to the world.

    What's the point? Indians will never buy the kind of models that are being sold in Pakistan. These are at least 20-30 year old model designs for us Indians.

    DYL already has junoon in the 100cc category. whats the point of launching another 100cc product, especially if its going to be equipped with the same old technology of its predecessors??all we can expect is a change in graphics every year-thats it....sounds like alot of technological progress, right?if only DYL can launch that 125cc bike(that is,if its ever coming to the market) on the lines of ravi piaggio but with improved quality and EFI, then that would be awesome and i would sincerely burry my hatred against DYL for resisting the coming of Japanese Yamaha to Pakistan

    Basically DYL wants to compete with Honda CD 70 ( in terms of Price tag )
    '' JOSH '' price is going to be set around 60-65K ... Bike's power is going to be 100 Cc but it isn't been shared with the dealers in the meeting by DYL's officials that it's ENGINE is gonna be the same as Junoon or Yama4's ... They just planning to reduce their price tags for their brands ...
