Yamaha India Suspends Production Due To Covid-19
You can still buy the bikes from your local Yamaha dealer
Due to the onslaught of the second Covid-19 wave in the country, Yamaha India has suspended its two-wheeler manufacturing operations at the Kanchipuram (Tamil Nadu) and Surajpur (Uttar Pradesh) plants. As of now, the facilities will be closed from May 15 to 31.
However, the brand will continue working with its suppliers and dealers to manage inventories. This should help the Japanese manufacturer avoid stockpiling. Yamaha has also clarified that its corporate and office employees will continue working from home.
