    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.

    The top speed for YBR125 shown at that Facebook page ... i am having a hard time believing that I get the technique those guys used (notice how the front biker is provider 'air-drag' for rear biker). Thats a lot of speed coming from a 125cc.
    Riders on the storm ... literally.

    The video is not of YBR as the meter is different with no rpm, secondly all the gauges were not working and the bike went to 140 with out any gear change lag.
    Grab Life with Handlebars and twist it a little hard.
    Ridding is therapy!!!!

    If YBR125 sells for 129.5 or 130Ks its a very very reasonable price as deluxe with its shittiest features is selling for 125Ks!

    Advantages:
    Bigger battery
    Bigger charger
    Self start
    Ohc engine
    Modern looks
    Alloy rims
    Better fuel economy(probably)
    Lesser vibrations

    Similarities:
    High build quality
    Disc brake
    124cc engine
    Fuel guage

    Now ybr125 vs rp125 is an interesting comparison. Are you willing to pay 20k for a brand name?

    as an brand definitely yamaha is better infact no comparison between two
    piaggio provides no after sales service and their bikes quality definitely can't
    be as good as yamaha

    yamaha built their own engine where as piaggio is using clone version of honda

    Well its a zongshen engine and zongshen makes some pretty solid clone engines. The quality difference wont be that much IMO but after sales is what will set yamaha apart. Piaggio will probably die now because of this

    its an blessing yamaha made bikes are now available in pakistan and hope
    they get success this will bring honda made bikes also in pakistan or atlas

    Infect YBR is superior than Piaggio
    a. Alloy Wheels
    b. OHC Engine (Vibration less)
    c. Brand Name

    So 18K difference not matter,

    But Now Atleast Pakistani Market have some Competition..

    Suzuki GS 150, Piaggio 125, Honda Delux 125, YBR 125

    Suzuki is only edge in 25cc Extra but in other aspect its far behind others...

    Hassam autos at Akber road is booking the bike and it will be in display by end of this month, you can visit them and register your mobile number with them and they will call you once they have it on thier showroom, according to them the bike has a comfort equal to suzuki gd 110 with respect to poer and comfort. I had booked mine today but will take final decision after checking it.
