TORONTO, ON – December 30, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –
Popular models like Raider, Road Star, V-Star 950, R1, R6, YZ125 see BIG decreases!
Yamaha Motor Canada has announced sizeable price reductions to most of their 2012 motorcycles, including models like the Raider, V-Star 950 and R1! This is great news for Canadian customers as suggested retail pricing gets more in line with those offered in the United States.
“Due to market fluctuations and inventory levels, we weren’t able to address the pricing gaps of the last few years as quickly as we would have liked”, commented Peter Swanton, National Sales Manager, Motorsports for Yamaha Canada. “But to kick off 2012, we’re well positioned to bring about this price reduction. Yamaha customers can now get many models for the same price they would have paid 7 or 8 years ago, even with the product technological advances that have happened in the meantime.”
While some prices remain unchanged, many key models, including those listed below, have seen significant reductions:
|MODEL||2011 PRICE||2012 PRICE||CHANGE|
|Roadstar Silverado S||$19,199||$15,499||– $3,700|
|Royal Star Venture S||$23,899||$19,999||– $3,900|
|V-Star 950 Tourer||$12,099||$10,999||– $1,100|
|V-Star 250||$5,499||$4,499||– $1,000|
|FJR 1300||$20,199||$16,999||– $3200|
Swanton added, “We have great sales programs to complement this change and we’re ready to get Canadians putting quality Yamaha motorcycles back at the top of their wish lists. At Yamaha, customers come first and we’re always welcoming new members to the Yamaha family.”
