Three Yamaha MT-125 ABS bikes have been imported from the UK for testing purpose earlier this month. The motorcycle is powered by a 125cc single-cylinder engine.
Yamaha has a formidable range of motorcycles in India which are good looking and have enthusiastically tuned handling characteristics. The R15 and FZ series of bikes have worked wonders for the company’s sales charts in recent times. Now, import data has revealed that 3 new Yamaha MT-125 motorcycles have been imported to India from the U.K. by some unknown entity.
The motorcycles were imported through the Chennai port via the sea route and have a declared value of Rs. 4,14,362/- each. The declared value of such products is a importer set value and has nothing to do with the market price of the product. It is however unclear at this point that who imported the 3 bikes. It can be either Yamaha who has brought these bikes here for research and development purposes or some other manufacturer who has imported the bikes for benchmarking it against its own products.
The Yamaha MT-125 is a naked street motorcycle sold primarily in European countries. The bike is powered by a single-cylinder 125cc liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine which produces 15 PS of power and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The motorbike has a Steel Deltabox frame and is equipped with inverted forks at the front and link monoshock suspension at the rear. The MT-125 also comes with disc brakes for both the wheels and ABS for safety.
Yamaha has not announced any plans for launching the MT-125 in India as of yet. Yamaha does have a 125cc bike in its portfolio named Saluto but it’s a commuter motorcycle and it does not exactly set the sales charts on fire. The MT-125 is a beautiful looking motorcycle which is sure to appeal to the hearts of enthusiasts if launched in India.
