With the launch of Yamaha YB125Z, the Japanese manufacturer has once again come to the spotlight for fulfilling its promise of delivering premium quality bikes as always.

The company had ventured to establish its production base in Pakistan jointly with a Pakistan-based company Dawood in 1975. Since then, Dawood has been undertaking the proxy of production and sales of Yamaha-branded motorcycles in the country.
