Reason behind the denial of launch of Yamaha R125 in India?
The Yamaha R125 is not going to launch in India for the following reasons:
(i) There won’t be enough buyers. Not many people will be interested in buying a Yamaha R125 when a Pulsar 220F is available at a same or a lesser price.
(ii) Globally, the 125cc bikes are learner motorcycles. You don’t need a licence to ride them. However, in India you need a licence to even ride a 100cc motorcycle.
(iii) Premium 125cc bikes might cause product cannibalism.
