Commenting on the launch of the new Yamaha Fascino scooter, Mr. Masaki Asano, Managing Director, Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltd. said, “This is indeed a very special occasion for us as we launch our new style icon Fascino designed especially for the Indian youth. The Indian youth today represents more than 50% of the population in India. These are people who are fashionable, adventurous and like stepping out of conventional boundaries and set new standards. The Fascino has also been developed eccentrically based on the concept of dynamic elegance, classy tailoring and balance of function and design. We as a youthful brand wanted to present them with a product that could fascinate them and Fascino, we believe, will certainly be able to do the job well.”
Mr. Roy Kurian, VP-Sales & Marketing, Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltd. added, “India has the world’s largest two-wheeler market with a total annual demand of approximately 16 million units (2014). Out of the total demand, the scooter segment constitutes 27% of the market, and is growing further year by year. Since 2012, Yamaha Motor has been introducing a range of scooters – including RAY, RAY Z and Alpha – and has been increasing its customer base in the Indian market. The new Fascino is intended to further expand sales in the scooter category, which is expected to grow further, especially among the youth who have a keen interest in current fashion and trends.”
