Has Yamaha any plans to launch any cruiser bike after Enticer?
Yamaha currently has no plans for the launch of Cruiser motorcycle in India. The current expectation from Yamaha is for the YZF-R3, which is expected to launch in India on 11th August. The cruiser bike market is managed only by Bajaj’s Avenger currently and no direct competition exists in the market. The Royal Enfield bikes have emerged very fast in the last few years but they actually does not compete directly with the lightweight Bajaj Avenger. Many other cruiser brands like Hyosung, Harley Davidson and Triumph have arrived in India. They offer international spec models with high performance on the Indian roads and have became very popular in the Cruiser segment. Yamaha India’s next plans would commence after the launch of R3 only.
