Yamaha’s concept of a Blue Square Showroom is to provide a one-stop solution to all the biking needs of a customer. Blue Square showrooms are designed to help customers realize and connect with Yamaha’s Racing DNA, while also enabling them to experience a sense of pride in being associated with a premium brand.

I am confident that these launches will further help us in showcasing Yamaha as a global brand with rich racing DNA. Setting up Blue Square showrooms across India is a key part of our vision to create a benchmark in terms of sales, service, and customer satisfaction. We are aiming to accelerate the expansion of Blue Square outlets to serve every Yamaha customer in India. In the long run, this will ensure that riding enthusiasts get the distinguished experience they deserve from a globally renowned brand like Yamaha."
