With the BS-VI compliance around the corner, automobile manufacturers are gearing up for a cleaner future. Amongst them is Yamaha, who have decided to launch their BS-VI compliant range of two-wheelers this November. But with this, expect Yamaha bikes to get costlier.

Yamaha is set to launch motorcycles in November 2019 and scooters in January 2020. Yamaha has also stated that with BS-VI compliance, the manufacturing costs are going to go up and that will eventually affect the current price of their vehicles by 10%-15% on average, depending on the product features.

Apart from mandatory norms, Yamaha bikes will also set some features as standard like the ‘Side stand switch’ in selected two-wheelers. This feature acts as an engine kill-switch while the side stand is on.

Yamaha will also add refreshed color schemes for all its lineup, so as to give it a fresh look. Yamaha has kept themselves busy this year with multiple launches, starting with the FZ-S V3 along with ABS-laden variants of Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0, FZ25 and Fazer 25. Yamaha bikes also launched the much anticipated MT-15 streetfighter, the naked variant of R15 V3.
