According to the statement by Yamaha, the company will introduce BS-VI motorcycles in India by November 2019 while BS-VI versions of the scooters will go on sale from January 2020.

The statement further went on to say that the hike in the production cost of the BS-VI variants of the Yamaha motorcycles and scooters will also affect the final cost of the products in the market. This hike in prices will vary between 12 - 15 per cent depending on the model and variant.

In a bid to offset the increase in prices, Yamaha will offer a ‘side stand switch' as standard on select variants. This additional safety feature will prevent the engine to start until the side stand is withdrawn entirely. However, Yamaha is yet to announce which of the models will be the first to receive the updated BS-VI spec engines.
