The bike is sold through two company dealers in Pune and Delhi and presenting the bike to John Abraham is a marketing strategy. John is brand ambassador for Yamaha India and his contract with the company is due to expire soon. While Yamaha is mulling a renewal of contract, Piaggio has struck while the iron is hot to present him with this exclusive superbike.

A biking aficionado in his own right, Abraham adds one more super bike to his range of bikes in his garage.
