New Yamaha R15 version 2.0 can also get you a Tata Nano for the same price. Yamaha seems to be coming out of slumber in India. More than a decade ago, it was the market leader, but during the time that bikes really took roots in the country when the economy started going up and up, the company failed to keep pace with the development and was left far behind by other companies including Hero Honda, Bajaj and LML besides other brands.
But now the company seems to have realized that it cannot let go, such an important market like India where millions and millions of bikes are sold every year.
But as everything good comes with a big price tag, so does this sports bike. The super bike is priced at Rs 1.07 lakh in India. This money is sufficient to get you a car, though small one in the form of Tata’s macro car nano.
But anyone who is going to buy this car may never think of buying Nano as only extremely well off people in the country can dream to possess a bike costing over a lakh rupees.
