Yamaha Canada Has New Pricing On More Than 135,000 Parts, Accessories

Most comprehensive pricing shift in Yamaha Motor Canada's history

August 2012 Powersport News

Toronto - Yamaha Canada has dramatically altered pricing on more than 135,000 of its 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 more than 50 percent.


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:

Motorcycle                               Air Filter                                   $49.79                         $39.60

Commenting on the pricing overhaul, Yamaha Canada's national manager, Parts & Accessories Sales Jay Bretherick, said, "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 added, "If you visit Yamaha-motor.ca, you'll see we've highlighted over 1100 accessories that have had a 10 percent 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."
