IAB Exclusive - Yamaha unveils V-Max, special edition Fazer, FZ on 16th
Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.
Our sources in the two-wheeler industry tell us Yamaha will launch the V-Max along with special editions of the FZ and Fazer day after tomorrow in Delhi.
The launch will happen in the presence of John Abraham. Yes, the stubbled star, you guessed it, is getting reinstated as the Japanese company's brand ambassador in India.
Our source also adds lucky John will be gifted a new V-Max during the event to welcome him back into the Yamaha camp. And to gain some publicity.
