    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.

    And high end torque is good for touring but extremely bad for our congested cities and that's the reason why CG (Crap) is doing so well.
    I have been saying this since the rumors of YBR started that YBR is a very good bike but no what Pakistan people like and need so it will never get good sales.

    My oh my.. Pakistani awam is so phaphay phutni! No money in pocket even for petrol but want a heavy bike! Lol...

    Guys.. yamaha is doing pretty well! They have invested big bucks and they are here to stay...

    More and more models will be launched every year.. if market responds well you might also get those fancy bikes (that most of u comment for but dont have money to buy) but for now.. a ybr125 is pretty good start specially id be delighted if its Efi!I hope it is!

    Its good to see mechanics getting training on newer engines after like 1980s when honda came to Pak and trained them for its cg and cds...

    Not that cg is a bad bike.. its a practical bike, but has nothing unusual or exceptional about it!

    Let us all support the change!
    3,4 Models shall be coming this year.. more in next so keep fingers crossed!

    Im sure ppl from ymc will be keeping an eye on ur comments here.. so dont demotivate them!

    Show some love n respect to their efforts... or drive cg for another 100yrs!

    Keep ur expectations realistic..
    you wont get a bike on same price as cg.. with more acceleration, top speed, alloys, self start, disks etc.
    You get what u pay for!

    And also.. theres more to a vehicle than just acceleration & top speed! So plz dont try to fit everything in these parameters!

    cg is overly priced bike . in fact all atlas honda 2 wheelers prices are inflated
    had there been no cHondas price of 70cc would have been well above 1 lac..
    cg hasnt seen that competition.. now with ybr we expect prices to stablize .. not give air to the already inflated cg price.
    so when comparing ybr price against cg hope this point will be kept in mind..

    Reading these forums, one gets the impression that 99% of the Pak bikers are drag racers, 95% of whom would also get to Autobahn track for a 100Km race, pushing their bikes to well above 150kph...

    Now in actual, the roads are flooded with Chondas, because most of people want a bike in the least possible upfront price + fuel economy + cheapest part price.

    Acceleration is a concern for a drag racer (in city drive there are some drag racers). Top speed??? only very few will bother...

    I have some insider knowledge that Honda might drop its bike prices like 10-15Ks.
