New Delhi: Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd. has inaugurated its new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant at Surajpur, Uttar Pradesh. Spread over an area of 36,000 sq. mts., the new Surajpur plant will have the capacity to produce 6 lakh motorcycles annually. The plant capacity can be augmented up to 1 million units.

The plant has 3 vehicle assembly lines and 4 engine assembly lines including one dedicated for export engines.

The engine and vehicle assembly lines are synchronized and incorporate concepts of Unit Assurance i.e. Complete Product Assurance, Parts Assurance through 100% kit supply on lines and synchronization of parts storage, supply and production.

The newly launched bike, Fazer (FZ16 & FZ-S), will be manufactured at Yamaha’s new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant at Surajpur, Uttar Pradesh which would also manufacture other models.

Speaking about the developments, Mr. Yukimine Tsuji, CEO & Managing Director, India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd. said, " During Auto Expo 2008, we had announced our investment plans and had promised to give India the feel of high technology and real Yamaha. We are pleased to have delivered on our commitments while being sincere to our customers."

"Today the investment comes alive in the form of this internationally benchmarked modern manufacturing facility," he added.

This fully integrated assembly plant is built on the lines of Yamaha’s globally tried, tested and successfully implemented standards and meets the global quality benchmarks. At the core are the 5-S and TPM activities that fuel its Manufacturing Processes. The innovative production processes along with high tech final assurance processes are aimed to achieve Zero Claims at the dealers and thus, a highly satisfied customer base.

Speaking about the bike, Tsuji said ", the New Fazer is the latest addition in our portfolio of technologically superior bikes including YZF-R15, FZ16 and FZ-S which exhibit Yamaha’s global ingredients – Performance, Innovation & Design and are the Best Products currently in the market to fulfill the aspirations of Indian biking enthusiasts."

Just like FZ16 and FZ-S, Fazer carries the Monocross suspension to ensure agile running performance and handling. The placement of this model’s ‘MidShip Muffler’ toward the center of the machine gives it a good concentration of mass, exhaust efficiency and handling.
