Upcoming New Yamaha Bikes in India

8

Yamaha gave India its first full-blown low displacement motorcycle in the YZF-R15. Since then, it has offered a number of products that have been received warmly by users. From the FZ range of motorcycles to the Fascino scooter and a few products in between (YZF-R3), Yamaha has had a good run in India. Its new products will likely aim at positioning the company as a premium two-wheeler maker in the country, as evidenced by the launch of the Fascino scooter too. So, let’s take a look at the upcoming new Yamaha bikes in India to know what the brand has in store for us in near future.

Upcoming New Yamaha Bikes in India

YZF-R3 ABS

Price ₹ 3.40 lakh
Launch Date February 2018
Engine Fuel-injected, parallel-twin, 321cc
Power 42BHP
Torque 30Nm
Transmission 6-speed

Upcoming New Yamaha Bikes in India - Yamaha YZF-R3

Yamaha brought the YZF-R3 to India and it immediately became a hit for the company in India. Its relaxed ergonomics (compared to younger sibling R15) and 321cc engine made for a great combo for both track use and highway mile-munching. It did not come with ABS, which was a curious omission. Then Yamaha pulled the plug on the bike. That did nothing to kill the bike’s appeal and it is still one of the most-awaited product among the upcoming new Yamaha bikes in India. However, we will likely see this bike in India again, this time with ABS too. Expect the 321cc parallel-twin engine to make 42BHP power and 30Nm torque. Also, expect the bike to offer slipper clutch. Don’t expect this bike to be affected by GST as it has a 321cc engine, which should help it avoid the highest 28 per cent GST tax slab.

NMax

Price ₹ 85,000 – 90,000
Launch Date September 2017
Engine Fuel-injected, single-cylinder, 155cc
Power 15BHP
Torque 14.4Nm
Transmission Automatic

Upcoming New Yamaha Bikes in India - Yamaha NMax

The NMax scooter was showcased by Yamaha at 2016 Auto Expo. The company will likely bring it to India to compete against the likes of Aprilia SR 150. In this application, the fuel-injected 155cc engine of the NMax will make 15BHP power and 14.4Nm torque. Paired to a CVT automatic gearbox, this scooter should be quite zippy. Incidentally, this 155cc engine will also perform duties on the YZF-R15 V3.0.

MT-03

Price ₹ 2.80 lakh – 3.00 lakh
Launch Date July 2018
Engine Fuel-injected, parallel-twin, 321cc
Power 42BHP
Torque 30Nm
Transmission 6-speed

Upcoming New Yamaha Bikes in India - Yamaha MT 03

The MT-03 is a naked version of the YZF-R3. So, minus the fairing, it is the same as the R3. This means a 321cc parallel-twin engine powers the MT-03 and makes 42BHP power and 30Nm torque. This engine will be paired to a 6-speed gearbox. The MT-03 borrows its styling cues from bigger bikes such as the MT-09. In the features department, this bike will likely come with ABS as standard equipment. Yamaha may give it a slipper clutch too but the likelihood of that happening is low. Expect this bike to come to India in Black and Blue colours sometime in mid-2018. Also, expect its price tag to be a tad lower than that of R3. Just like the R3, this bike will be able to avoid 28 per cent GST tax slab as it has a 321cc engine.

New 100cc Bike

Price ₹ 40,000
Launch Date April 2018
Engine Carbureted, single-cylinder, 110cc
Power 9BHP
Torque 9Nm
Transmission 4-speed

The new 100cc bike from Yamaha will likely come during the festive season of 2017. This bike will likely replace the Saluto RX in Yamaha’s India lineup. Using the same engine as the Saluto RX, this bike will likely have power and torque outputs of 9BHP and 9Nm, respectively. Expect to see this bike sport a 4-speed gearbox.

Fazer 250

Price ₹ 1.30 lakh
Launch Date February 2018
Engine Fuel-injected, single cylinder, 249cc
Power 21.5BHP
Torque 21Nm
Transmission 5-speed

Upcoming New Yamaha Bikes in India - Yamaha Fazer 250

The Fazer 250 is a fully-faired version of the FZ-25 that is already on sale in India. The Fazer 250 will be to FZ-25 what the Fazer is to the FZ-16. This means the same single cylinder fuel-injected engine on the Fazer 250 with power and torque outputs of 21.5BHP and 21Nm, respectively. Also, it will likely have a 5-speed transmission that sends power to the rear wheel via a final chain drive. Expect the bike to have slightly-higher top speed in comparison to the FZ-25, as it will have a full-fairing.

YZF-R15 V3.0

Price ₹ 1.32 lakh – 1.36 lakh
Launch Date February 2018
Engine Fuel-injected, single cylinder, 155cc
Power 19BHP
Torque 14.7Nm
Transmission 6-speed

Upcoming New Yamaha Bikes in India - Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0

The YZF-R15 is perhaps the most-awaited one of the upcoming new Yamaha bikes in India. After all, it is perhaps Yamaha’s most popular product in India. It was the first true-blue sportbike in India and has wowed everyone since then. The Version 2.0 of the bike has become, dare we say old. Hence, it is time to give the R15 a complete overhaul. The R15 V3.0 is on sale in foreign markets, so we know its specs – 155cc, single cylinder, fuel-injected engine with 19BHP power and 14.7Nm torque. A 6-speed gearbox sends the engine’s power to the rear wheel. Expect this bike to come with upside down suspension up front and LED headlights too.

New 100cc Scooter

Price ₹ 50,000
Launch Date February 2018
Engine Carbureted, single-cylinder, 113cc
Power 9BHP
Torque 9Nm
Transmission Automatic

The new 100cc scooter from Yamaha will likely be a replacement for the Cygnus Alpha scooter. The sales of the Cygnus Alpha have not been as great as Yamaha would have liked while the Fascino has been doing quite nice. So, the new 100cc scooter will likely draw styling inspiration from the Fascino. However, its proportions will likely be similar to the Cygnus Alpha. It will likely sport the same 113cc carbureted engine as on the Cygnus Alpha and will likely make 9BHP power and 9Nm torque with an automatic gearbox onboard. This scooter will likely rival the Activa 110 from Honda and Jupiter from TVS.

Nozza Grande

Price ₹ 55,000
Launch Date May 2018
Engine Fuel-injected, single-cylinder, 125cc
Power 10BHP
Torque 12Nm
Transmission Automatic

Upcoming New Yamaha Bikes in India - Yamaha Nozza Grande

The Nozza Grande will be Yamaha’s Activa 125 fighter. It will likely have quirky styling elements and will likely have a fuel-injected engine onboard. This will make it a technologically-advanced scooter in this segment. Expect this engine to displace 125cc and make 10BHP power and 12Nm torque. It will have a CVT automatic gearbox and will likely show up after Auto Expo 2018 in India. Among the features it is likely to have is telescopic front suspension, mobile phone charging socket and front disc brake.
