Will India get Yamaha XSR125?

There’s considerable demand for sports-oriented 125cc motorcycles in India. Bikes like KTM 125 Duke have been a big hit with customers. However, in case of Yamaha, it is unlikely that XSR125 will be launched anytime soon in India.

As of now, Yamaha is working to launch FZ-X retro-themed motorcycle, which is based on FZ- S Fi. Yamaha has created multiple 150cc bestsellers in the Indian market and FZ-X launch will further strengthen its position in this segment. Yamaha would like to focus on its strengths instead of experimenting with the 125cc motorcycle segment in the Indian market.
