just 17,576 monthly sales for Yamaha in India. what a joke!!

Good stats. I find it pretty ridiculous that Yamaha and Suzuki have such a puny share of the market. These Japanese Giants are sleeping to my mind. Sleeping after the fact that they are losing ground across the world and they've been making losses for many a quarter now.

Yamaha has been doing things but I don't think it's enough to enthuse Indian bikers. Guess we expect much more from this brand and it isn't delivering in spite of the two good bikes it has launched in the last 2 years.

And a small but appropriate change to your blog layout. :)
