Japanese motorbike manufacturer Yamaha, in partnership with ACI Motors Ltd, yesterday launched two new models of two-wheeler with a view to attracting young riders in Bangladesh.
The models -- FZS FI V-3.0 and FZ V-3.0 – were unveiled at a programme at Le Meridien Dhaka Hotel in presence of around 800 young bike-lovers.
“We have brought the two models for the young bike-lovers of Bangladesh with a high safety and sporty drive,” said Motofumi Shitara, chairman of Yamaha Motor Group India.
FH Ansarey, managing director of ACI Motors, said Yamaha always targets young people on the back of its attractive design, superior performance and quality.
The pre-booking for the models began on April 10 and already the pre-booking for 1,000 units has completed, said Subrata Ranjan Das, executive director of ACI Motors.
The FZS FI V3 model is priced at Tk 295,000 and the FZ V3 is at Tk 290,000.
ACI Motors started its journey with Yamaha in September 2016. During this period, Yamaha witnessed a significant growth in sales.
Yamaha sold 16,210 units in 2017 and 20,387 units last year and is expecting a sales growth of 20 percent this year.
