Yamaha BSVI launch will happen from November 2019 onwards – a little later than rivals Honda and Hero…
In an official press release, India Yamaha Motor has revealed new details and some specifics of its upcoming product plan. It re-iterates that since 2018, the company has realigned its focus on premium motorcycles and scooters and would continue to do so in the future.
Yamaha says it is committed to offer environment friendly mobility solutions and has the global exposure of making them. It emphasises that team Yamaha is actively working on manufacturing Bharat Stage VI compliant products – the ruling which will become mandatory from April 2020 onwards across India.

|BS VI Scooters||December 2019 onwards|
The transition will obviously happen in phases and chances are that the higher selling models may come in later, closer to the D-Day. This is because makers may not want to lose market by introducing ‘costlier’ versions of their bread and butter models.
It must be noted that Hero and Honda have already announced their BSVI products which are expected to start rolling out from September onwards.

Apart from this, the R3 has consistently been doing zero units for the last two odd months and chances are that we may get the international new-gen version soon (details)…
