The most comprehensive pricing shift in Yamaha Motor Canada’s history.
July 23, 2012 (Toronto) – Yamaha has dramatically altered pricing on over 135,000 of their parts and accessories! The change in pricing has allowed Yamaha to be more competitive with aftermarket, online and foreign vendors. Some items have been decreased over 50%!
The pricing alignment covers all product groups that Yamaha sells, from the smallest engine components to the largest bolt-on accessories. The changes aren’t limited to obscure, dated, highly stocked parts. Some of Yamaha’s popular ‘fast moving’ parts have received some sizeable decreases as illustrated in the examples below:
PRODUCT PART OLD MSRP NEW MSRP
Motorcycle Air Filter $49.79 $39.60
Motorcycle Passing Lamps $168.95 $131.95
Outboard Gauge Kit $443.16 $352.98
Outboard Propeller $164.82 $139.19
Snowmobile Piston Ring Set $50.84 $39.96
Snowmobile Semi-Rigid Saddlebags $219.95 $169.95
ATV Brake Pad Kit $51.78 $41.12
Side by Side A-Arm Skid Plates $164.95 $138.95
WaveRunner Cover $307.95 $232.95
Sport Boat Wakeboard Rack $549.95 $410.95
General Chain $69.55 $34.38
Yamaha’s National Manager, Parts & Accessories Sales, Jay Bretherick, commented on the massive pricing overhaul, “Yamaha customers can now get the quality, fit, and finish of Genuine Yamaha Parts & Accessories at a price comparable to those products supplied by other vendors. We feel that if given similar pricing, most customers would prefer to use OEM equipment for its quality and fitment advantages.”
Yamaha parts and accessories are developed in conjunction with the unit and are specifically made for a Yamaha, not an ill-fitting universal product designed for different makes and models.
Bretherick went on to say, “If you visit Yamaha-motor.ca, you’ll see we’ve highlighted over 1100 accessories that have had a 10% or greater decrease from the original MSRP. When you factor in the tens of thousands of parts that were also impacted, this is some of the biggest news to come from Yamaha Motor Canada in quite some time. ”
If you’re looking to accessorize, repair or freshen up your Yamaha with new parts, be sure to look at Yamaha first.
