@ Mods - you might want to change the title to JUST LAUNCHED :-)

Launched....!

Yamaha bikes @ Rs 10.5 lakh
[ INDIATIMES NEWS NETWORK ]TUESDAY, DECEMBER 04, 2007 12:41:52 PM
NEW DELHI: Yamaha Motor Co. has today introduced two high-end bikes, YZF-R1 and MT01 at Rs 10.50 lakh.

YZF-R1 is a sports style model powered by a 1,000 cc engine (same capacity as engines powering cars such as the Zen Estilo and WagonR). The R1 has a power of 152 bhp @ 10500 rpm with a torque of 104.9 NM @ 8500 rpm. The length of the motorcycle is 2040 mm and has a width of 705 mm.

The cruiser style model MT01(picture below) is powered by a 1.6-litre engine (same capacity as engines that power mid-sized sedans such as Suzuki SX4). MT 01 has a horsepower of 34 bhp @ 11250 rpm and a torque of 20 NM @ 10000 rpm.

See Yamaha MT-01 in pictures
See Yamaha R1 in pictures

Yamaha, which is aiming to sell about 100 units every year, will import both the models as fully-built units from Japan.

Earlier this year, the government allowed the import of motorcycles with engine capacities over 800cc, paving the way for the entry of motorcycles like Harley Davidson in the country.

Yamaha competitors such as Honda and Suzuki Motor Co have also announced their plans to sell premium bikes in the country. Imports of fully-built passenger vehicles attract a duty of 103 per cent thus doubling the cost of the bike.

lol,,its funny and sad to see the excitement in this forum abt these bikes,,how deprieved are we indians? 10.5 lac showrooms price is way too expensive,,on road with taxes,insurance etc will be almost 3-4 lacs more than grey mkt. in my opinion its not worth it.

If I go by this report I should've stuck to my RD350. The bloody engine redlines at 5,500 - how can they quote BHP and torque figures (wrong ones too!) at 11,250 and 10,000?

In the grey market the R1 costs around 9.15-9.25 so its not such an increase really. Plus you get peace of mind especially if you are in the high tax payers bracket.

Would the road tax be the usual 7% for domestic vehicles, or 21% thats charged for imported vehicles. This itself could change potential official bike buyers to grey market customers if charged at 21%

hes talking about the mt01 which theyve quoted as having 34bhp at 11250rpm. what steeriod is saying is that the engine redline is at 5500rpm so how could the journos say 11250 rpm. also 34bhp is wrong. it should be in the region of 90bhp.

I was talking about the MT01. I rode one to work today and will be riding it back home, so I think I can say with some confidence that it redlines at 5,500

10.5 is just the ex-showroom price my dear friend.
use your calculations to find out the approx on road price and how many lakhs do you save.

Ok, I think the road tax and insurance amount is less for 2-wheelers compared to 4-wheels.

Cedia at 9,Lakhs Ex-showroom B,lore Hits 10.3 On-road, i.e 1.3Lakhs of Tax n Insurance.So my wild guess is 60% of this amount for 2-wheelers.

If R1 is 10.5 Lakhs Ex-showroom, this bike should land you at somewhere say 11.25-11.50 Max. which I feel is every penny worth it for Tax conscious buyers.

A school mate of mine who is very well to do wants to give his brother-in-law an R1 and when i showed him a brand new '07 R1 (0 km) for 8.85 he refused saying that he will not have proof of purchase when the tax guys ask about it. He wants a full duty paid bike & these R1's will be just what he's looking for. And thats exactly what i meant by peace of mind for high tax payers.

Not too bad. Yamaha kept the price as low as they could I guess, without going at a loss. On road should be around 11.5 lakhs. Not too far from the grey market bikes at present, but then the knock on effect would be the prices of nearly new grey market bikes falling a bit. Atleast of the R1 for now.
