Yamaha new models will get side stand switch as standard.
Select models could feature new graphics.
New colours and visual tweaks are also expected in some models.
Yamaha Motor India will launch BS6 compliant versions of its bikes and scooters in the country soon. The company will first roll-out BS6 updated motorcycles by November 2019, while the upgraded scooters will be introduced by January 2020, before the implementation of new emission norms. The BS6 version of bikes and scooters are likely to witness a price hike of 10 to 15 per cent, based on the model.
Yamaha is expected to offer side stand switch as standard on select two-wheelers to curb pricing. The safety feature averts engine from starting till the side stand is removed. It could also add new graphics, visual changes and new colours on some models.
While Yamaha is prepping to launch BS6 compliant two-wheelers, it rolled-out FZS V3.0 earlier in January. ABS-equipped versions of R15 V3.0, FZ25 and Fazer 25 along with MT-15 were also introduced in March. Additionally, special editions of select models were also launched in the country recently. With the new BS6 emission norms coming in from April 1, 2020, other two-wheeler manufacturers will also update their model range.
