Crap - Robin, I agree with you partly and I know you know the SBK market well, however dont you think buyers would rather put in that 50k and buy a brand new bike? I am guessing about 2L lesser than the on road price esp considering higher interest rates for seconds.

Anyway - time will tell.

These SBK's have a new model launched every year so wont it lead to more depriciation in the used market. Like there is a 2006 R1 and now Yamaha have launched a slightly re tuned version for 2007.

theoretically you are correct busa, but then you must see how many actually sell and the reality is that it really doesn't affect things too much. say a 07 R1 sells for 12 lakhs new. now in 07, that 06 bike would barely lose maybe 50K or 1 lakh tops (pushing it). Why? Because not many who buy it would sell within such a short period.

Take for example a 2006 Ferrari F430 and a 2007 F430. They would probably cost within a few thousand of each other! Its on;y once they are a few years old - 3 or so, that you notice some sort of depreciation.

Im pretty sure the insurance premiums will be exorbitant for the SBKs sold in India.

Yamaha to launch superbikes by November - Two-wheelers - Auto - News By Industry - News - The Economic Times

16 Sep, 2007, 1307 hrs IST, PTI

NEW DELHI: Struggling to make a mark in the Indian two-wheeler market, Japanese bike major Yamaha is turning to its superbikes MT01 and YZF R1 to stamp its authority, with plans to launch the products as early as November this year.

The company is giving final touches to plans of rolling out its flagship sports bikes -- the 1,000 cc MT01 and 1,600 cc YZF R1, besides contemplating a foray into the gearless scooters segment.

"Going forward our aim is to become a dominant player in the Indian two-wheeler market by rolling out high-end or executive segment bikes. Besides, we will also offer two superbikes MT01 and YZF R1 to the Indian consumer by November this year," Yamaha Motor India Managing Director Tomotaka Ishikawa told media.

The bikes are being sold in a range of $10,000 to $12,000 (Rs 4-4.8 lakh) in various global markets. The cost in India would more than double as the country levies a duty of over 100 per cent on imported bikes.

MT01 and R1 would be retailed through the company's select dealers in metropolitan cities and Yamaha is targeting sales of more than two-dozen bikes in the first few months of launch, he added.

Speaking on Yamaha's plans for the domestic market, Ishikawa said the company would not launch products in the entry-level segment and would bank primarily on the executive and high-end bikes to capture its targeted 10 per cent share in the domestic market by 2012.

"We are taking it as a challenge to build the Yamaha brand again in India and have planned several launches over the next four years. However, we are not looking at the entry-level segment anymore as it does not go with the company's image," he said.

PS : Yeah ,I call it fake, untill on some day I see them on shoorooms while going to office.

Scoop pics of the pre launch test rides When was the last time you saw THREE SBKs with temp registration all of similar type? FZ 6, Royal Star, R1 methinks. But all happened too fast to pay attention! The R... zoomed away till i took my cam out. other two bikes are for you guys to see

cant be journos since they werent raping the bike. ditto for company test riders
must be some chacha bhatija of the top management

Bad pics, but clicking while riding at 90 kph with camphone isnt one of my virtues!

phamilyman - Nice pics!
Thats aint the FZ6 (the FZ6 has underseat exhaust..)
That Bike looks like the naked XJR 1300

also, when the Yamaha One showroom was brought down by the MCD in Delhi, all the bikes went to the top officials' houses. Some of them do ride these bikes out together many a times (including Mr Saurva and Mr Sanjay.. along with the Japanese guy - forgot his name.) So, i think it might be them out for a ride

What effect with a 12 lakh price for the MT-01 have on potential private importers of such bikes?

I'm concerned that this might jack up the landed price as assessed by the customs chaps - "oh this is a 12 lakh bike here!" when I've paid faar faar less than that outside India. I think this might hit me hard..

Default Steeroid's MT-01

Steeroid,

Your landing price is dependent on the MSRP in the US or UK. Hence the price here should not matter.

Thats sad because the prices here are cheaper than either US or UK. Hopefully it wont make much of a diff in the end.

Khader Bhai, Customs have their own price list and just depreciate with their own calculations.

The customs price list is the "black book". I know that they definitely have one for UK and US , not so sure of Middle/Far East..

The calculation they use is fairly straightforward.. Explained below
