But the changes might (I imagine) make it easier for Yamaha to launch/design new products and/or smooth the process of further here.

the new venture, called India Yamaha Motor Pvt., the Iwata City,
Japan-based company said in a statement filed to the Tokyo Stock Exchange
today. The unit will begin operating in April.
