In 1975, Yamaha Motor formed a joint venture with Dawood Corporation to form Dawood-Yamaha Limited (DYL) which was responsible for manufacturing and sales of Yamaha bikes in Pakistan until 2008 when the joint venture came to an end. Since 2008, Yamaha Motor Corporation had been trying to setup the Pakistani base for its two-wheeler business and formed YMPK in 2013.

The commencement of new plant marks the re-entry of Yamaha bikes in Pakistan and Yamaha Pakistan is hopeful to capture a major chunk of Pakistani two-wheeler industry, which has a strong demand of 1.65 million units per year and is expected to grow to 3.0 million units by 2020.

Furthermore, Yamaha is looking to use Pakistan as an export hub for the South Asian two-wheeler market and hope to manufacture more than just a few models here.

In the first phase, Yamaha Pakistan has launched YBR125 motorcycle, which is available across the country through 140 dedicated dealerships of Yamaha Motor Pakistan.

The YBR 125 is powered by a 125cc 4-stroke engine, which is also evident by its name, coupled with a 5-speed gearbox. The bike is equipped with features such as front disk brake, alloy rims, self-start, halogen headlamp, fuel gauge, gear indicator, etc. Moreover, the single cylinder engine will have an engine balancer that would help reduce the engine vibrations that are usually present in one-cylinder engines. The price of Yamaha YBR125 is 129,400 rupees before registration and taxes.

I build products and review cars for PakWheels. I am also famous for typing more words than anyone wants to read.

    Finally Good Luck to Yamaha in Pakistan and i hope Other competitors (Specially Honda) will come up with something new and competitive pricing.

  • Shahzaib Khan

    Damn costly….ths is insane wth ths speedometer they are askng 130000 they hav lost their mind…. -_-

  • rashid

    This may be run of the mill bikes in pakistan, for now, but what’s important is how Yamaha leads the industry in the years to come. Will they be able to provide something better than all those, my-new-sticker-wala-model motorcycles or bring something new. definitely better than honda 125, lets see how it racks up against suzuki and ravi piaggio

  • Alpha Bravo

    speedometer is crap

  • 03147587836

    Awesome….! Now there is some Big competitor to Honda. Yamaha should also consider to launch 70cc, 100cc, 150cc and 200cc as well to get penetration in Pakistani market, as Honda.

  • Fahad

    Great news, with time people will get use to good bikes, & other manufactures will also introduce up-to-date bikes soon IA ^_^

  • Waleed Ahmed Rajpoot

    great news.. more then 25000 people get jobs..

  • Fahad

    Even better than honda 125

  • aaksays

    i heard 200 people got new jobs with this project

  • sajid ali

    local vendors, showrooms, dealers and their mechanics ???count those jobs too. A single 5 star hotel room has 143 jobs associate with it.

  • Shahzad Khan

    Very true. Speed meter is a piece of crap. Poor finishing. Back mud guard is designed so ugly; it should have been more squarer and shorter.

  • mohsin

    spare parts must avail frequently in every corner of pakistan for success of yamaha

  • Shahbaz

    So it is Not DYL It is manufactured by yamaha on its own not by third party like Dawood Yamaha Limited DYL
    i get dat right ??

  • Shahbaz

    If so
    Then for sure Honda 125 time is over.

  • kash

  • Usama

    as long as Yamaha isn’t manufacturing heavy 2 – stroke bikes in Pakistan, don’t even think of competing with Honda or any other bike in Pakistan. Our people are kind of conservatives, they don’t like fancy bikes. All of new Honda fancy bikes were big flop in Pakistan. The old 70s design of CD 70 and CG125 are still the largest selling bikes in Pakistan.

  • Usama

    Honda CG 125 is way better than all other bikes. Their old classic design can’t match with any new fancy bike in Pakistan, not even Honda’s 125 delux model which was a big failure

  • Usama

    People in Pakistan like spokes rims, they don’t like plastic body of side covers and seat. The seat should be separated. Such fuel tank in just small 125cc bike doesn’t match it. The head light is too fancy for 125 bike. I don’t know what kind of people design or suggest design for bikes in Pakistan

  • Muhammad Usman Majeed

    they are not charging 130k for speedo meter. what a minor thing you picked. i have suzuki GS 150. and it has 128k with NO DISK BRAKES, BAKWAAS CRAPY ACCESSORIES (including meter,cables, plug, coil etc) & NO ALLOY RIM. AND IT ALSO DOES NOT CROSS 100Km speed. so whats the point of having 150cc who does not cross 100 ? now come to CHONDA 125. pakistani mentally ill people want to hear THUS THUS PATAK PATAk sound. they dont care what technology is used. what a smooth ride it gets. all what they want is resale value. these things are for life time experience. to make a bond. pakistani poeple deserve LUNDA bazaar items. cheap, old fashioned and with no reliability. how can a mentally fit person go for an hour or long ride on a bike whose sound cases headaches even to the people who cross by ?

    discussing failure in market ! any one who does good quality work gets nothing here. what abdul sattar edhi got ? a robbery and then selfies of 5 star actors at his illness ?
    what did abdul salam got who won nobel prize ? qadyaani fatwa
    what about musharraf ? he did the same thing to terrorists what raheel shareef is doing. but he didnt even get the chance to stand for elections. you people dont deserve good things.
    good things are failure here. pendo people , 70% pakistani cant even write their own name.when they go to buy a bike, what mentality they carry ? MA TE MORR HONDA E LAY SAN. (what company make a slogan in such pendo language? ) do suzuki or yamaha brands make such pendo commercials .?

  • Azhar

    Mr. Muhammad Usman Majeed. Stop Criticizing people of Pakistan for a motor cycle. if u so dont like Pakistan then get a life time visa of any other country and move abroad on permanent basis. and try to mock them if u really can.

    u dont have any slightest of the idea how much sacrifice these pendo people have made to get this country.

  • Asadullah

    Usman majeed where are you from, U r a one unsatisfied asshole I ever found on Pakwheels…..ok…I’ll tell all pakwheelers where r u from, this dumb ass was born and brought up in toilets, his father use to clean them, people use to behave rough and hate the man who put his hand in others shit. Then after the long misbehave he promised himself to take revange from the society and marry a bitch and then this unsatisfied piece of shit came to life,
    beta jis thali main khatay ho is main chhed naheen kartay. Mulk jesa bhee ho, apna hai. Apnay mulk ko buray bool K kahan jaoo gay. Jitni bhee eng boolo, rahoogay pakistani, so start thinking with your mind not with your full of shit ass.

  • Zafar Ali
