Yamaha has reduced the pricing of the YZF-R1 and the MT-09 in India thanks to the tax revision for the CBU and CKD bikes in the country. The Yamaha MT-09 presently comes priced at Rs. 9,55,575 compared to the previous pricing of Rs. 10,88,122 (ex-showroom, New Delhi). This means the MT-09 is now cheaper by Rs. 1,32,547 than before. On the other hand, the YZF-R1 comes around Rs. 2.57 lakh cheaper than before as it is now priced at Rs. 18,16,192 compared to the previous pricing of Rs. 20,73,074 (ex-showroom, New Delhi). This means the litre-class bike is now cheaper by Rs. 2,56,882.

The Indian government has slashed the customs duty on the CBU and CKD bikes by 50%. Previously, customs duty for the imported motorcycles with 800 cc or lesser displacement engines was 60%, while the models with 800 cc plus engines drew 75% tax. Thanks to the customs duty reduction, several premium bike brands have started reducing the price of their CBU or CKD bikes.

Yamaha launched the new MT-09 in the Indian market in November 2017 and it has garnered pretty good attention from the enthusiasts. This is the only naked bike from Yamaha in India and it competes with rivals like Kawasaki Z900 and Triumph Street Triple RS. Powered by an 847 cc inline three-cylinder engine, this bike generates 147 bhp of peak power and 87.5 Nm of peak torque.

The Yamaha YZF-R1 comes powered by a 998 cc four-cylinder engine that churns out 197 bhp of peak power at 13,500 rpm and 112.4 Nm of peak torque at 11,500 rpm. This litre-class bike rivals with competitors like the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R, Suzuki GSX-R1000 and BMW S 1000 RR.
