    Thumbs up Yamaha to invest $150million in Pakistan

    This is the latest and confirmed news. I heard the news on GEO and also came across this LINK

    I see it as a prologue to an entirely new era in "motor biking" in Pakistan. For the first time Yamaha will locally manufacture bike from 125 to 150cc range, plus the bikes will be featured with EFi technology.

    Lets hope they bring something according to the desires of the biker's community.

    2. 2nd one is basically capture touring side, which also include Alloy, Disk, Large Fuel tank, strong front suspension, long seat, round headlight and some off road type Tyre (this will Compete with GS-150, Honda Deluxe)
    3. 3rd one is without alloy and disc break and classic look, this will be base model and this will capture seniors market (ex CG-125 and Pridor and sprinter etc) people


    According to my info these models equipped with SOHC technology with fuel efficiency so people no worry to buy 125cc just because of fuel because they will give the fuel economy of 100cc bikes.
    Prices will varies from 1 Lakh to 1.4 Lakh
    Well its a good effort...... finally there will be more players in motorcycle race and honda will have serious competition.
    Lets hope we see than asap.

    I, personally will like more power over sound...... but its just my thinking.
    They should introduce them, if people dont like them, just kill them and move on to next model as it is in international market.
    If people show interest, just improve it.
    Dealers, they just wanna rip everyone ....so what can you expect from them :p

    I had Deluxe .... i like it , still like it......... only problem with deluxe is 5th gear, it slows the bike down as its over drive.
    If yamaha is able to get around that it will be amazing bike.
    Ohh and international YBR 125 is heavier than Deluxe. A lot heavy :p

    Yamaha should introduce two types of product line ups:
    1. For normal customers who cannot afford bikes more than Rs 100,000.
    2. For people who can afford up to Rs 180,000.
    Now for category 1, the above models should be launched and for category 2 MT 125 and R15 or even R25 should be launched because people who have money will be pleased to get 2 years warranty and after sales network instead of imported bikes which do not have any after sales and warranty.
    Cheers

    Yamaha can change the whole two wheeler market in Pakistan by storm..
    At present no company is allowed to manufacture a bike above 150cc even if they want to and that's one reason why we don't have anything above 150cc from local manufacturers. There is a big mafia that forces government to devise wicked strategies and nonsense import duty formulas, else a lot of people would be enjoying exciting machines in reasonable prices.

    Thats a bit too much generalization.

    I mean, I personally like a bike with an engine grunt, or at least enough to tickle my heart. But does that mean i want it because of Show Off? Does that mean i'd twist throttle in a public place to get attention like a 12 year old? NO.

    However, i'd have to agree about the 'general' thinking of public here, where many people think "CG125" is the best of both worlds, and no bike can beat it. In our case, since most of the people buying a CG125 are ... well, not literate enough, it can be assumed safely that any bike better in everyway ... but if doesn't have a good engine grunt, will fail. Sad truth

    Still, its not like i'd overlook other features for a bike just because of its sound. Sound can be produced with after marked exhuasts so its not a big deal. But ditching other features for sound ... well, thats JAHIL and f*cked up
    Riders on the storm ... literally.

    I said % of people (mean literacy rate + old mentality) people fail plastic body and low weight but on the other hand they want Fuel economy too. actually our mechanics play a major role is our decisions whenever we take advice they said no no no, its flop bike, etc etc. they only prefer the old technology bike with pathetic reason, coz ager hr banda latest technology or smart Gadgets pe chala gya to unki rozi roti kaise chalaygi

    Bhai jan mechanics ko na blame karen. You know how many pw members have bought a classic cg125. They didnt buy it for the sound. They bought it for the 'reliability'. And its true, us jaisi simple machine unreliable ho b kaisay sakti hai. People are willing to give up style, gadgets, ride quality, safety and almst everything just for the sake of reliability. :-)

    CG is a workhorse,there must be no doubt..but as we can say corolla 72 was discontinued this bike just wouldn't die.I have my reservations with cg for it being a depleted & discontinued tech.I would gladly buy any new gen ride but not cg(never).Douchebags care about resale.
    The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are above-average drivers.
