Yamaha price cut shock

Yamaha has announced dramatic and favourable price reductions on five key 2012 models. The bikes are all 600cc plus and are from several classes including sports, adventure and roadster models. The biggest saving of £1400 is on its flagship sports R1, which, until the announcement at Motorcycle Live, the 2011 model had a list price of £13,528 including On The Road...

Yen

I guess the very strong Yen allows them to grab more market  share while staying revenue neutral with lower prices.  More of this in our immediate future.

Still overpriced

R1. It's still a good £1000 more than a 2012 GSXR1000 or  CBR1000.

FJR 1300

Suprised the FJR 1300 is not on this list. There can't be many people who are prepared to pay £15k for one.

Hmmm

Can't believe that Yamaha is struggling so much to sell bikes - great news for any of us in the market for a new stead... I was planning on going shopping in early 2012 - wonder if the discounts will come to South Africa.

Nothing like not selling bikes for the people at Yamaha to realise that they had priced themselves out of reality .

A stunt like this kills the second market and does nothing to the goodwill of the sucker who did buy a 2010 model at the overinflated price .

All round a good move from Yamaha .

price cut shock- my arse

A tiny £400 off a brand new R6 you can get more than that off with good old fashioned bartering, hardly something to write home about.

Price cut

With respect I think they had no choice, Yamaha are the most expensive bike manufacturer out of the big four. I'm not lucky enough to have rode any of the new thou's but judging on reviews etc the R1 isnt up to the zx10r or s1000r performance so other than being a thourough bred yam man what would be your incentive to spend more money on a lesser (using the term loosely!) bike?

UK vs. US pricing?

UK MSRP for the YZF-R1 is £12,128 = $18,933 (22/11/2011).

Here in the US MSRP for the YZF-R1 ranges from $13,990 to $14,490, depending on paint scheme.

Why the difference of 36% more in the UK?
