Earlier this year in January, Yamaha had increased prices of Fascino 125cc, RayZR 125cc, R15 V4, FZ X and Aerox. Prices were increased in the range of Rs 800 to Rs 2,000. The company had issued a statement saying that price hike was due to steep rise in raw material cost and safety regulation of footrest.
In February 2022, Yamaha had increased prices of Fascino, RayZR, Aerox and R15 V3 Blue variant. Prices were increased in the range of Rs 1,000 to Rs 1,200. Even with multiple price hikes this year and in 2021, Yamaha scooters and motorcycles continue to be competitively priced. Most other two-wheeler manufacturers have also increased prices multiple times in the last 12 months.
There could be more price hikes later this year, as the supply situation continues to be adversely impacted. Input costs have been rising continuously, forcing auto companies to pass some of the burden to customers.
