They have confirmed the same with Yamaha India’s public relation representative. The new edition is expected to carry new shades and graphic enhancements while the engine would stay the same 321 cc, 2-cylinder unit. Though the chances are too thin, Yamaha might also introduce ABS as an option in India.
