Well, seems like common sense has prevailed at Yamaha India.
According to an article in today's The Economic Times, Yamaha plans to launch its 998cc superbike YZF R1, perhaps in 2008. There are other heavier bikes and scooters also in the line-up as Yamaha tries to show the Indian consumers how much fun can biking be. Well, weren't we waiting for Yamaha to do just that! In fact, even lighter bikes than that won't be a problem. We are waiting.
