Yamaha as a brand needs no introduction in the world of bikes. In their global lineup, they feature a wide range of bikes. The majority of Yamaha motorcycles, on the other hand, do not make it to India. This could be for a variety of reasons that the brand is aware of. We do, however, have a wishlist prepared. In today’s piece, we’ve compiled a list of five Yamaha motorcycles that we’d want to see in India.
|Yamaha Bikes We Need in India||Price (Expected)|

|Yamaha YZF-R3||Rs 3.5 Lakhs|
|Yamaha MT-03||Rs. 3.4 Lakh|
