Flop show by Yahama. I was desprately looking for a 2XX CC from them. I'm not sure whats stopping them from doing it when Honda, Bajaj (in the form of KTM) can pull it off.

Totally agreed, Was also expecting they might give us the R6.

Some lovely pics! I see that the mirrors on the Vmax were being put to good use.
Got to admit that I am a bit disappointed with the range. Nothing really exciting hitting our shores. Was hoping to see a 250 out of Yamaha's stable.

Come on Yamaha, you can for sure make a better pitch. Is it the Japanese management who are disconnected from Indian Pulses? Yamaha has a very good Brand Image for making powerful 2 wheelers. Apart from R-15 & FZ16 there are hardly any newer models being launched. Pull up your socks and roll out a 250/400 twin cylinder Motorcycle.
Probably it might save the company some money by not rolling out those scooters.
