Default Yamaha planning to enter the scooter segment in India

Yamaha, which has several scooter models, ranging from 110 cc to 400 cc, is evaluating the right segment to foray into the Indian market. The company is likely to introduce its automatic range of scooters with dual disc brakes and twin-shock chassis with high-powered liquid cooled engines in the premium segment. It may also hit the entry-level segment with its fuel-injected 125 cc four-stroke engine and compact-sized urban scooters. YMI has already commissioned a market survey to determine different volume generating scooter segments in India.

Why would they? IMHO scooters are on their way out and the market is more ripe for bikes than for scooters. Why not concentrate energies on launching a decent bike of 180-200 cc capacity? Should give them greater traction!

Yamaha launcing scooters would be great but people are losing interest in scootes.

If yamaha needs a market share then it should be better than HONDA scooter and far better that older chetak

Scooter sales are picking up lately and thats sue to the fact
"a scooter can be driven by a female and old people and any1 else in the family"

Suzuki already introduced a scooter named "Access 125" which is better than honda.

lets see how Yamaha exploit the market and surely more competition is better for customers.
