clear evidence Yamaha Indonesia is on all-new 150 cc automatic scooter project with 2DP code November 7, 2013Posted by Taufik TMCBlog in : Blogging activity , trackback
midweek is on its way and this morning another leakage is provided. Sourced originally from your fellow visitors of this blog, TMCBlog has had another puzzle of soon-to-be manufactured product of Yamaha Indonesia, adding more to become a complete picture to predict. And this time 2DP is again the point of attention through a piece of paper presumably being the project document. Have a notice at above picture.
TMCBlog had made an original writing that 2DP is likely to be product Yamaha Indonesia is about to completely manufacture it. There will be two types made available for this automatic scooter, as you may have suspected, one using ABS and the other one Non-ABS. A deliberately made forecast has been stated that some around 3000 to 5000 units will be rolled out each month. Such huge forecast in number leads TMCBlog | motoupdate to analyze 2DP positioning Yamaha Indonesia will make. For your information, a figure of 5000 units itself is of huge one, outnumbering even their muscled bike, Byson, that is consistenly around 5000 units. So, what does it mean?
Certainty is one TMCBlog have now that in term of pricing, this 2DP-coded bike will not belong to what so called very premium segment. Instead, it would be some around middle one. Its retail price would be presumably in twenties millions, heading away from psychological thirties millions. If this is to happen, interesting to know what Yamaha Indonesia’s nemesis, AHM, would react. Its flagship automatic scooter, PCX 150 is priced above thirties, far beyond the predicted price of 2DP bike. Although PCX 150 is simply put to trigger derivative strategy, its position increasingly becomes less firm when a competition is made present by Yamaha Indonesia’s product sharing similar displacement yet lowered pricing. . . . Since this is TMCBlog analysis, I’d like to hear what you know, just leave your comment below and have a nice reading.
