Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer, Yamaha Motor, has announced a resumption in operations by opening dealerships and service centres in select cities in India. The brand has resumed operations after the Government announced ease of restrictions in orange and green zones across the country.
The brand has taken multiple measures towards health and safety and has sanitised all its outlets and service centres. The company has also opened alternate service bays across all service centres that are currently operational.
In order to reduce footfalls at their dealerships and service centres, and in order to adhere to social distancing mandates, the brand has advised existing customers and potential customers to book appointments before visiting a store. Additional safety measures include mandatory thermal scans of all staff and visitors.
In related news, the brand recently increased prices of select models from its Indian portfolio. Prices were hiked for the YZF-R15, the MT-15, the FZ15, and the FZS range of motorcycles. The new prices were listed on the brand's website.
While the price hikes stand between Rs 500 and Rs 1,000, the brand has made no statement about why the hike has been implemented. To know more, click here.

Thoughts About Yamaha Motor India Resuming Operations In India
The nationwide lockdown that was implemented after the Coronavirus outbreak in the country has resulted in the worst month ever for sales in the Auto Industry. Hopefully, with brands like Yamaha and others finally resuming partial operations in the country, sales will pick up and will be strong enough to help reboot the slumping economy.
