for those who wish to know how the MT-01 looks like :




This is an awesome move by Yamaha. The MT-01 sells for around USD16000 or 6.4Lac, which means the ex-factory price should be around 4.8Lacs or so, which means a landing price of almost 10Lacs here, which can easily push the OTR price to 11Lacs.

The R1 on the other hand should sell for around 9Lacs OTR, not bad considering u get backup, warranty,spares,insurance,loans etc, which till date, no grey importer was providing in India

Err Bunty - those are PROTOTYPE pics from a few years back. The production MT-01 looks different (eg., the spring/damper for the rear swingarm is BELOW the engine, not above as shown in the prototype pics).

For pics of the MT-01, simply visit my BHP Garage.
