Yamaha bikes have become costlier in India: Check new prices
Japanese automaker Yamaha has increased the prices of the products in its Indian portfolio. The hike ranges from Rs. 600 to Rs. 1,800, depending on the model. The new pricing might put a dent in the sales of popular motorcycles such as FZ-Fi, FZS-Fi, FZ-X, and FZ 25. However, none of the models have received any kind of cosmetic or mechanical updates.

Yamaha is one of the earliest Japanese giants to offer performance motorcycles in India such as the legendary RD350 and the first generation of the R15.
