This is the second time Yamaha has raised prices in this financial year; prices were hiked in April as well
Frequency of price hikes in the last two years has been unprecedented. While OEMs try to absorb much of the increase in input costs, some of it has to be passed to customers in order to sustain the business. After pandemic related supply chain disruptions and subsequent shortages, rising global inflation has emerged as another major challenge for OEMs.
