With the price hike, Yamaha is not offering anything new with their products
Yamaha has always had a huge success with its motorcycles in India. Some, a lot and others, not so much. With motorcycles like YZF-R15 and MT15, Yamaha targets the younger and enthusiast motorcycle market and it has a good range of 125 cc scooters too. Yamaha hasn’t made it big in the budget commuter segment as they hoped. They had the YBR, SZ-R, Saluto, Alba, Gladiator, Libero, Crux and some more.
Now, Yamaha has completely discarded the budget commuter segment altogether. Yamaha only targets premium buyers now. Scooters? Only 125 cc. Commuters? Starts from 150 cc. Yamaha also has pretty high price tags too. On top of it, Yamaha recently announced another price hike for their products without any additions. Some are hiked less while some are hiked more.

Few Yamaha products like FZ 25, FZS 25, R15 V3 sold as R15S, drum brake variants of Fascino Hybrid and Ray ZR Hybrid are not the recipients of this price hike. The pricing that these products bore will be retained as we go forward.
Coming to the scooters first, disc brake variants of Fascino Hybrid and RayZR Hybrid get around 0.57 to 0.6% hike across their colour options. This amounts to a flat Rs. 500 hike across their colour range. Aerox 155, on the other hand, gets a Rs. 2,000 price hike taking the price to Rs. 1,38,800 (ex-sh) with 1.46% price hike.
