Now, this is a big, big story if it turns out to be true. And one of ICB’s readers Dileep Anirudh gave us the heads up. What we’re about to publish might warm many a Indian motorcycle enthusaist’s heart. Yamaha, apparently is all set to take on the likes of the Honda CBR250R and the Kawasaki Ninja 250R with an all new 250cc motorcycle called the R250.
Now, Honda India plans to sell about 30,000 units per year. On the other hand, the R15, though being cheaper and a smaller motorcycle sells in a smaller quantity than Honda projects for the CBR250R. All said, we’re waiting with bated breath if Yamaha indeed is planning a 250cc motorcycle for the Indian as well as the global motorcycle market. Until then, you would be well advised to take this piece of news with a fistful of salt.
