INTRODUCTION

About India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd.

Yamaha made its initial foray into India in 1985. Subsequently, it entered
into a 50:50 joint venture with the Escorts Group in 1996. However, in
August 2001, Yamaha acquired its remaining stake as well, bringing the
Indian operations under its complete control as a 100% subsidiary of
Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd, Japan.

India Yamaha Motor operates from its state-of-the-art-manufacturing units at


Faridabad in Haryana and Surajpur in Uttar Pradesh and produces
motorcycles both for domestic and export markets. With a strong workforce
of 2000 employees, India Yamaha Motor is highly customer-driven and has a
countrywide network of over 400 dealers.

The company pioneered the volume bike segment with the launch of its 100
cc 2-stroke motorcycle RX 100. Since then, it has introduced an entire range
of 2-stroke and 4-stroke bikes in India. Presently, its product portfolio
includes Crux (100cc), Alba (106cc) and Gladiator (125cc).

COMPANY PROFILE

Paving the Road to Yamaha Motor Corporation

"I want to carry out trial manufacture of motorcycle engines." It was from
these words spoken by Genichi Kawakami (Yamaha Motor's first president)
in 1953, that today's Yamaha Motor Company was born.

"If you're going to do something, be the best."

Genichi Kawakami

The first Yamaha motorcycle... the YA-1.

Then, in January of 1955 the Hamakita Factory of Nippon Gakki was built
and production began on the YA-1. With confidence in the new direction that
Genichi was taking, Yamaha Motor Co. Ltd. was founded on July 1, 1955.
Staffed by 274 enthusiastic employees, the new motorcycle manufacturer
built about 200 units per month.

11
Genichi Kawakami's history with Yamaha was long and rich. He saw the
new corporate headquarters in Cypress, California and the 25th Anniversary
of Yamaha become a reality in 1980. He also watched bike #20 million roll
off the assembly line in 1982. Genichi passed away on May 25, 2002 yet his
vision lives on through the people and products of Yamaha, throughout the
world.

YAMAHA LAUNCHING INDIA'S FIRST SPORTS BIKE

I recall during 80's riding in Rx100 was a great passion for all bike lovers.
Yamaha name was become a house hold name in most of the house in India
because of one only Rx100. All young boys loved that bike and its

1
9
melodious sound. But later Yamaha was not able imprint the same passion
with another model though the reputation of Yamaha was highest among
bike lovers who admire the sexy style and performance of YAMAHA R1 and
YAMAHA R6 yet another catchy name associated with Yamaha was the
legendary Valentino Rossi.

YAMAHA RX 100

VALENTINO ROSSI

What would the average Indian fan expect from designers like YAMAHA?

They dream nothing less than riding in R1 in the streets of India! Its dream
for all of us to move with speed of wind in the streets of Cochin kaloor and
Marine Drive ...well this dream seems distant but what Yamaha can
contribute nothing less than what they promised in latest Auto Expo in New
Delhi....The launch of YZF R-15.... Company official says it's the DNA of
R1.

YAMAHA R1 > YAMAHA YZF-R15

This will really shake the concept of Indian two wheeler Market.
Yamaha has really initiated the process months back with the launch of
YAMAHA R1 in selected showrooms. I got the privilege to interact with the
distributors of R1, the confidence levels are much above they expected but
average Indian youth will not be able to spend Rs 10.5 lakhs for a bike so
the benefit has not extended to majority.

YAMAHA YZF R 15 will fulfill this dream. Surely, this will be the first bike
to set a bench mark in India. Company officials' have kept the specification
as secret but different rumors are there, all are matching with one point that
R15 will be 150 CC.

Years back YAMAHA has launched another outstanding bike in 125 CC


segment in Asian markets

YZF-R1 - State-of-the art race technology

The YZF-R1 is a legend of the supersport world, an acclaimed one-litre

performer that’s become a motorcycling icon, an all-powerful World

Superbike race-winning machine that’s also a monument to the power of

beauty. The R1’s performance is electrifying and yet what makes this

motorcycle truly remarkable is its superbly rider-friendly character because

Yamaha’s avant-garde, race-bred technology puts you confidently in control.

YZF-R1
BACK ‘ER IN

Everyone can hold the throttle wide open up the straight, it’s how well
everything works after you close the go-tube that will make the biggest
difference to how competitive your lap is. With the R1’s slipper clutch
metering the amount of back torque, you get outstanding control and
accuracy, and blisteringly fast corner entry.The slipper clutch enables
changes in clutch plate pressure when torque force comes to bear on the
crank from the rear wheel, and exemplifi es what is most remarkable about
the R1 engine - not only the amount of power, but the linearity and superb
transitional characteristics of that power.

STIFF AND FLEXIBLE


As chassis loads continue to escalate it’s only logical that the chassis itself
should be a tuneable component. Our engineers have identifi ed specific
areas of the frame where stiffer is better, and others where fl ex provides the
key to good handling. By tuning fl ex quotients of the main frame, rear arm

2

and fork, Yamaha created an optimal rigidity balance for the new YZF-R1.
As a result, chassis response to initial steering inputs is light and responsive
while stability in high-speed turns is excellent, and overall handling
qualities… simply brilliant.

MT-01 - Torque like a hammer

It's a genius idea – unite a hi-tech 1,670cc V-twin with an aluminium sports

frame and cutting-edge suspension and brakes – and you've got a sports

riding revolution. There is nothing like the MT-01: a massive engine that

produces huge torque for hammer-blow acceleration, a sports chassis that

knifes through the turns, a pulsating exhaust note that's total aural ecstasy

and monumental styling that'll stop the traffic.

4Ps of Marketing

Marketing is an ongoing process of planning and executing the marketing


mix (Product, Price, Place, Promotion often referred to as the 4 Ps) for
products, services or ideas to create exchange between individuals and
organizations.

Marketing tends to be seen as a creative industry, which includes advertising,


distribution and selling. It is also concerned with anticipating the customers'
future needs and wants, which are often discovered through market research.

Essentially, marketing is the process of creating or directing an organization


to be successful in selling a product or service that people not only desire,
but are willing to buy.

Therefore good marketing must be able to create a "proposition" or set of


benefits for the end customer that delivers value through products or
services.

Four Ps

In the early 1960s, Professor Neil Borden at Harvard Business School identified
a number of company performance actions that can influence the consumer
decision to purchase goods or services. Borden suggested that all those
actions of the company represented a “Marketing Mix”. Professor E. Jerome
McCarthy, also at the Harvard Business School in the early 1960s, suggested
that the Marketing Mix contained 4 elements: product, price, place and
promotion.

In popular usage, "marketing" is the promotion of products, especially


advertising and branding. However, in professional usage the term has a wider
meaning which recognizes that marketing is customer-centered. Products are
often developed to meet the desires of groups of customers or even, in some
cases, for specific customers. E. Jerome McCarthy divided marketing into four
general sets of activities. His typology has become so universally recognized
that his four activity sets, the Four Ps, have passed into the language.

The four Ps are:

3
1
• Product: The product aspects of marketing deal with the specifications
of the actual goods or services, and how it relates to the end-user's
needs and wants. The scope of a product generally includes supporting
elements such as warranties, guarantees, and support.
• Pricing: This refers to the process of setting a price for a product,
including discounts. The price need not be monetary - it can simply be
what is exchanged for the product or services, e.g. time, energy,
psychology or attention.
• Promotion: This includes advertising, sales promotion, publicity, and personal
selling, branding and refers to the various methods of promoting the
product, brand, or company.
• Placement (or distribution): refers to how the product gets to the
customer; for example, point of sale placement or retailing. This fourth
P has also sometimes been called Place, referring to the channel by
which a product or services is sold (e.g. online vs. retail), which
geographic region or industry, to which segment (young adults,
families, business people), etc. also referring to how the environment
in which the product is sold in can affect sales.

These four elements are often referred to as the marketing mix,[3] which a
marketer can use to craft a marketing plan. The four Ps model is most useful
when marketing low value consumer products. Industrial products, services,
high value consumer products require adjustments to this model. Services
marketing must account for the unique nature of services. Industrial or B2B
marketing must account for the long term contractual agreements that are
typical in supply chain transactions. Relationship marketing attempts to do this by
looking at marketing from a long term relationship perspective rather than
individual transactions.

As a counter to this, Morgan, in Riding the Waves of Change (Jossey-Bass,


1988), suggests that one of the greatest limitations of the 4 Ps approach "is
that it unconsciously emphasizes the inside–out view (looking from the
company outwards), whereas the essence of marketing should be the
outside–in approach". Nevertheless, the 4 Ps offer a memorable and
workable guide to the major categories of marketing activity, as well as a
framework within which these can be used.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

3
3
Research may be defined as the search for knowledge through an
objective and scientific method of finding solution of problem. Research
methodology is a way to systematically solve the research problem. It
includes the various steps that are generally adopted by a researcher in
studying problem along with the logic behind them. During my research
I have adopted the following research design.

Research Design:

 To decide the objective and subjective of the research.

 To determine the most suitable method of research.

 To determine the sources of data.

 To decide the appropriate research instrument for data collection.

 To determine the suitable sampling design and sampling size.

 To conduct the field survey for data collection.

 To prepare the research report.

Descriptive Research

This method is undertaken when the researcher is interested in knowing


about the characteristics of certain groups such as age, sex, education
level, income. Interested in knowing the proportion of unit in a given
population who behaved in a particular way, determining the
relationship between two or more variable.

This method was the most suitable in my research work.

Data collection

There may be different types of information and data, Some of the


information may be unpublished, some is complete and some is

3
4
incomplete, some is reliable data and some is based, It is necessary for
the researcher to know and the information which is usually employed
in marketing research work and the types of sources from which it is
generally collected. The research problem decides the nature of the
sources of data. They may be primary data and secondary data.

Primary Data

Primary data is being collected during the course of asking questions by


performing surveys. Primary data is obtained either through
respondent; either though questionnaire or through personal interview.
I have collected the data through both of them.

Secondary Data:

Are the data already available in the form of print material, website,
journals etc, I have used some Magazines, Newspapers, Websites and
course material for that purpose.

Research Instrument:

I have used the structured questionnaire in my research process which


has carefully designed keeping the entire objective in mind. Most of the
questions in my questionnaires were closed ended in nature.

Sampling plan:

The process of collecting observation from the elements of a large


population may be expensive, time consuming and difficult. It will be
cheaper and quicker to collect information from a sample plan of the
population. A sample is a subset of population through a valid statistical
procedure so that it can be regarded as representative of the entire
population. The valid statistical procedure of drawing sample from the
population is called sampling. Sampling plan consists of following
elements:-
Sample units:

3
5
My sample units were direct dealers + sub-dealers + service centre and
customers so it is clear that sampling units are nothing but variable to
be studied.
Sample Frame:

The entire list which contains the sample unit is known as sample
frame; In this case my sample frame was Delhi city.

Sample size:

The large sample is more accurate the results would be but practically it
is not feasible to survey the entire target population or even the
substantial portion of it. In this project, being aware of the time and cost
constraints, sample size was 2 direct dealers including 27 sub-dealers
and customers.

Sample method:

In my research process I have used Non probability sampling, which


involves purposive or deliberate selection of particular units of a
sample.

Contact method:

Personal interview is that in which an interviewer obtains information


from interviewee by meeting face to face. The methods of collecting
information through personal interviews are usually carried out in a
structured way.

Field survey:

After carefully choosing the way I have started the survey for accuracy
of the data I picked my sampling unit from some parts of the city, and
then went on to analysis and report making part.

suzuki hayabusa

Suzuki introduced the sportbike Suzuki GSX1300R, popularly known as the


Hayabusa, in 1999. Since its inception the Suzuki Hayabusa was widely
regarded as the fastest production motorcycle in the world until major
Japanese motorcycle manufacturers voluntarily imposed speed regulators in
their bikes.

The Hayabusa derives its name from the Japanese term for the Peregrine
Falcon, the fastest creature on the planet with speeds in excess of 300 km/h
in its hunting dive. The Hayabusa's 4-stroke, four-cylinder liquid-cooled
1299cc engine enables it to generate an enormous peak power of 175 bhp at
9800 rpm and reach from 0-100 km/h in three seconds flat.

The Hayabusa's roaring success prompted other motorcycle manufacturers to


come up with similar speed merchants like the BMW K1200S and the
Kawasaki ZX-14R.

With the Kawasaki ZX12R Ninja, Kawasaki plunged into the high-
performance sportbike war raging among the Japanese motorcycle
manufacturers. The Ninja's liquid-cooled, 1199cc DOHC, 16-valve 4-
cylinder engine generates a peak power of 178 bhp at 10500 rpm.

The Kawasaki Ninja's revolutionary all-aluminium monocoque frame and


cast steering swingarm pivot areas realise an extremely stiff structure and
contribute to the bike's superb high-speed stability and supersport handling
performance.

The ZX12R's wind-tunnel designed fairing was developed with help from
Kawasaki's aircraft division and the redesigned upper cowl has a shorter
nose for improved aerodynamics and a sportier look. In honour of an
agreement reached among Japanese manufacturers, starting with 2001
models, Kawasaki introduced speed limiters in the ZX-12R to reduce the
bike's top speed to 300 km/h.

The CBR1100XX was the culmination of Honda's ambitious effort to
produce the ultimate superbike with a breathtaking performance. The unique
design of the Blackbird facilitates excellent aerodynamics by achieving a
small frontal area and one of the lowest effective coefficients of drag in
motorcycling, while ensuring a remarkably high level of wind protection and
rider comfort.

The CBR's liquid-cooled, 16-valve DOHC inline-four cylinder 1137cc


engine generates a peak power of 153 bhp at 10000 rpm. On the braking
front, Honda's revolutionary Linked Braking System (LBS), first used in the
1993 CBR1000F and completely revised on the 1996 ST1100,
simultaneously engages both front and rear brakes when either the front
brake lever or rear brake pedal is used.

The CBR's dual-spar diamond-configuration aluminum frame features a


triple-box-section extruded aluminum swingarm that offers exceptional
rigidity without excessive size and weight. The swingarm is supported by a
standard Honda Pro-Link rear suspension system which features an
H.M.A.S. rear damper.

Summary and conclusion – R15

Yamaha YZF R15 is the first model for the Indian market designed in the
true supersport image and featuring a high-level balance of enjoyable
running performance on winding roads. Packed full of state-of-the-art
technologies, the new YZF-R15 boasts performance worthy of a supersport
model and a body design that evokes the image of the YZF-R series and
gives visual expression to the quality of its ride. The YZF R15 is powered by
149.8cc Fuel Injected liquid cooled engine that will be producing an almost
impossible 17bhp with maximum torque of 15 Nm at 7500rpm; which
makes it like the most powerful bike under 200cc range and has a 6-speed
Transmission. Yamaha is showcasing its potential for India with some real
performance.

It is based on totally race technology with which MotoGP bikes runs,


technology with which R1 is built. It has India’s first 150cc 4 valve engine
with forged pistons, Deltabox frame & 6speed gear box. It’s overall length is
1995mm, overall width is 670mm and its wheels base is 1290mm. Since

sporty YZF R15 is shorter too and its height is just 1070mm. YZF R15
features F 80/90 -17 inches tyres in the front and 100/80-17 inches tyres in
the rear. Both the tyres are tubeless.

Design

The “R” Design: This characteristic of motorcycles designed by YAMAHA


as represented by the R series reflects the philosophy running through these
models — expressing performance visually.

For example, YZF-R6 shows a strong body line that springs up in a single
line from the rear axle to the pivot and then to the head pipe. This is a visual
expression of the straight shape of the Deltabox frame. These elements are a
visual expression of “frame rigidity.” Viewed from the side, the shape
created by the side panel and the upper surface of the tank creates an
impression of the center of gravity shifting to the front tire. This is a visual
representation of how the front tire grips the road in its sporty running
performance. Needless to say, YZF-R1, with its athletic build, is also a
visual expression of performance. A characteristic of the R series is that,
when you view the machine, you get a sense of its concept and performance.

This philosophy has been fully transmitted to YZF-R15. An important point


to note is that this motorcycle is not a scaled-down version of YZF-R1 or
YZF-R6. YZF-R15’s design is based on having an excellent engine cooling
method.

The shape of the cowling around the radiator area was determined so that the
shapes of the air intake area and the rear outlet area where the air is scooped
out are optimized to improve radiator efficiency. As for the outlet area, the
mid-cowl area was designed using sculpturing 3D methods to create a three
dimensional shape with a sense of volume. This resulted in an outlet area
through which air is directed outwards with minimal resistance. We were
able to present the new R series also in terms of design, and we have been
able to maximize the performance of the liquid cooled engine, which will be
a first for the Indian market.

When viewed from the front, it gives a sense of volume that seems well
beyond its 150cc displacement. This does not simply mean that it is
voluminous, but that it is grounded in the Art of Engineering which
transforms function into art.

Engine

YZF-R15 is equipped with this all-aluminum cylinder called the DiASil


Cylinder and a forged piston, the same type of piston used in YAMAHA’s
supersport bikes. The fact that both the piston and cylinder of YZF-R15 are
all-aluminum ensures excellent heat dissipation, eliminates heat-induced
engine power loss, and helps improve fuel efficiency. The DiASil Cylinder
is given a special surface treatment to prevent oil evaporation from the
cylinder’s surface and improve oil consumption. The cylinder also has
excellent hardness and is considerably resistant to wear compared to
conventional iron sleeves.

Additionally, the piston is made in a forging process, the optimum way of


achieving lightweight designs.The reciprocating mass with the forged piston
is approximately 20% less ( according to Yamaha test ) than with an engine
of the same displacement fitted with a conventional cast aluminum piston.
Resulting in an invigorating feeling when revving up. Conventional pistons
are typically made in a casting process where molten aluminum is cast in a
mold. YAMAHA developed its proprietary “controlled forging technology”
in 1997, which enables mass production of forged aluminum pistons. These
pistons have been used in sport models such as the R series. The same
manufacturing process was used to develop YZF-R15. Forged pistons retain
the excellent strength of aluminum alloys because the metallurgic matrix of
aluminum is not affected during the fabrication process. Therefore, the
piston can be made lighter and thinner.

Chassis
YZF-R15 is equipped with a linked type monocross suspension that delivers
a comfortable ride and a cushioning performance that is less prone to
bottoming out. In particular, it reduces annoying “sinking” when riding
tandem. The linked monocross suspension consists of a link mechanism
sandwiched between the rear arm and cushion unit to create changes in the
lever ratio based on the lever effect. When the shock absorber is almost fully
extended, the lever ratio is high and therefore the spring is soft, and the
damper works softly as well.

As the shock absorber strokes in, the lever ratio gradually decreases and the
spring rate increases. Eventually, when it is nearly fully stroked in, the lever
ratio becomes small and the spring becomes hard and strong. The damper

6
2
also becomes hard. By making changes to the lever ratio in this way, we
were able to achieve soft riding comfort as well as excellent damping under
intense load conditions. The optimization of the frame and rear arm rigidity
of the Deltabox Frame combined with the effects of the linked type
monocross suspension achieve good riding comfort, agile handling, and
turnability, hardly ever causing bottoming out.

Fuel Efficiency

In order to maximize the efficiency of the fuel injector, which injects the
optimum amount of fuel for different amounts of intake air, YZF-R15 is
equipped with a large 3-liter air cleaner. The duct area of the intake duct was
designed optimally to optimize the flow of intake air. Additionally, the use of
a 4-valve combustion chamber (a combustion chamber with 2 intake and
exhaust valves each) has allowed designers to layout the spark plug at the
center of the combustion chamber for better flame propagation. This also
increases the total valve area relative to the 2-valve chambers for improved
intake/exhaust efficiency (volumetric efficiency). YZF-R15 is fitted with a
hemispherical 4-valve combustion chamber, a configuration that allows
intake and exhaust valves to be laid out in the smallest size possible.

Summery and conclusion – R1, MT01

I could start telling you what a great motorcycle the R1 is, but well, you
could just read any review as everyone seems to have come to the same
conclusion anyway. But I can tell you according to my research.

For starters, it's quite comfortable on longer rides. A lot of people complain
about getting tired wrists on an extreme machine like this, but as long as you
don't lean on the clip-ones too much and ride on nice twisty roads to keep
you busy, it's no problem at all.

In the city, it's not the ideal bike, but it does get me around. As long as you
can get past the lines of cars (which isn't that hard with a small motorcycle)
and you can keep on moving, it's ok. (Well, the problem with not moving is
more in the protective clothing I'm always wearing when riding my R1,
which can be quite hot when you're not moving on a hot summer day).

You should never ride an R1 on a highway if you want to have fun. It's
simply impossible to drive remotely close to the speed limit, so you're

6
3
always looking out for speed camera's and police vehicles ;-) And most
highways don't have many corners anyway.

Of course, the best place to drive an R1 is on a race circuit. We don't have


that many race circuits around here though, so there aren't a lot of
opportunities to ride it there., but the big possibility of crashing it when
racing (in which case we couldn't afford a replacement R1) has kept me from
racing it. So we just try to find as many roads as possible which resemble
race circuits, to have a lot of fun on R1 ;-)

And when you want to take it (relatively) easy, the enormous torque which
the R1 power plant delivers from low down makes sure you don't have to
keep the revs up. It's really a quite comfortable touringbike ;-)
