Yamaha Bike Price Hikes
Yamaha Motor Pakistan increased the prices of three bikes at the start of this month. Yamaha hiked bike prices up to Rs. 7,000 on the 2nd of April. Just a week later, the company launched the new YBR 125 with a price increase ofa whopping Rs. 7,000. As expected, no explanation has been shared by the company.
Public: “Hey Yamaha, what is new about the bike that’s worth the extra 7,000?”
Yamaha: “Oh no, nothing at all. It’s the same piece of clunk with a new sticker.”
Public: “What? Then why the price increase?”
Yamaha: “Meri bikes, meri marzi.”
Auto companies in Pakistan are on the loose since the beginning of this year. As highlighted before, the US dollar price has come down significantly in the previous few weeks, so the public was expecting auto prices to decrease. Still, all we hear about these days are car and bike price hikes. It’s about time the government takes notice of unreasonable price hikes by motorbike companies. The auto industry should also work on a regulatory system for the manufacturers to increase their prices.
