Ravinder Singh, vice president (strategy & planning) said that the company was growing at the rate of 20-25 percent every year, which is higher than the industry average. Yamaha wants to reach sales of 1 million units in 2016, he said.

Commenting on the individual segment, Singh said Yamaha has a share of 23 percent in the deluxe bike segment and 7 percent share in scooter sales. The company is selling around 15,000 scooter units every month.

The growth in numbers would also be helped by the increase in Yamaha Motor India’s overall production capacity as their Chennai plant is set to be inaugurated soon. The new Rs 1,500 crore plant will have a production capacity of 1.8 million units per year.
