In the wake of the Capital making mandatory for women two wheeler riders to wear helmets, Yamaha Motor India Sales today launched a series of headgears at a price range between Rs 990 and Rs 1,380, as per a PTI report.
According to the company, Delhi government’s mandate for women to wear helmets, even as pillion riders, is indeed a welcome move.
Commenting on the development Roy Kurian, Vice President Sales & Marketing, YMIS, said, “On day one of this move, we could see many women riders being fined and most of the women riders came up with excuses such as non-availability of helmets exclusively for women. Gauging the requirements, we are happy to introduce our new range of helmets meant exclusively for women.”
The company also said helmets are even more important for kids’ pillion riders.
“We’d also like to urge the government to make a start and make helmets mandatory for children as well,” Kurian said. The new helmet products will be available at all Yamaha dealerships across the country with a price range between Rs 990 and Rs 1,380, the company said.
While the women’s helmets are priced between Rs 990 and Rs 1380, the kids’ helmets are priced at Rs 1,350.
The new helmets were conceived and developed by Yamaha Motor India Sales and are certified by ISI.
