KARACHI – Yamaha Motor Company, the manufacturer of Yamaha two-wheelers in Pakistan, increased the prices of its bikes for another time, with the recent surge being as high as Rs3,500.
The hike comes on the heels of an increase in the general sales tax (GST) rate which was increased to 18 percent to rake billions as the country is facing an economic meltdown.
Following the surge, almost all automakers jacked up prices and the latest to join is Yamaha.
The company’s cheapest unit Yamaha YB125Z is now available at Rs308,500, with a surge of Rs3,000. The price of YB125Z DX stands at Rs330,500 with a surge of Rs3,500. Its most selling unit YBR125 is now available at Rs339,500.
