Yatri Motorcycles Unveils Its Bikes; Here Are The Specs, Prices And Debates
The wait for Nepali bike afficionados is finally over. After years of immense hype-up, Yatri Motorcycles has finally unveiled two highly ambitious products for preorder — the café racer-styled Project Zero (P-0), and the light-weight Project One (P-1).
The P-0 is a bulky electric beast fashioned in the likeness of a cafe racer. The cafe racer foundation combines with a modern finishing to gives the bike a futuristic look. The price for the P-0 is set at Rs 19,45,000. Even more impressive than the ostentatious looks are its powerful specs.
Meanwhile, the P-1 follows a 'silently bold' philosophy. Weighing a mere 110 KG, the P-1 promises optimum comfort while plying the Nepali roads.
But are the specs and designs enough to satisfy the expectations of the Nepali market? Well, response from netizens has been quite divided to say the least.
Yatri did a good job of bringing P1 instantly side by side with P0.— RED_DEVIL_GEEK (@REDDEVILGEEK1) April 24, 2021
Just imagine the backlash when there's no comparative counterparts for an 19 lakh bike which everyone expected to be around 6 to 7 lakhs. pic.twitter.com/2rI9uTlcxt
I waited so long for yatri P0. Didn't buy any other bike all this time to now learn that it costs 19 lakhs more than my budget. Feels bad man.— Geralt of Rivia (@binay77777) April 24, 2021

yatri motorcycles unveiled their price and frankly, that was coming. their intentions are good, going greener, being cost-effective in the long run, and challenging the current automotive industry but clearly, their product is not for the locals. It is simply unaffordable.— BreadGenie⁷ (@humandorrito) April 24, 2021
Might sell my Mheecha for a Yatri motorcycle. https://t.co/sSuaHoX3UZ— Binaya Rimal (@binaya_np) April 24, 2021

Yatri Bike is a lot like Dharahara.— Aayush Shrestha (@aayush_who) April 23, 2021
We are proud of it but its too damn expensive.
And why is it shorter than I imagined?
Yo ! People actually thought Yatri would be available for 50-60k just cuz "made in Nepal". LOL— Soviyat Lamsal (@imSlamsal) April 25, 2021
Yatri bikes is not for the people who ride pulsar NS with akrapovic exhaust system bought in ratnapark that makes annoying loud sound. Stop yelling it’s price to be expensive.— A7x (@BinitBaral) April 25, 2021
Yatri Bikes looks astonishing af asthetic wise. But chalauda ta fix hath, kando, gedagudi sab dukhcha jasto lagne. Also why is it so expensive? I hope they make it cheaper next time.— Inzi (@gunnerinjal) April 23, 2021
Yatri ko marketing team ensured that sales of their cheaper bike will sound reasonable by over pricing their "zero" bike now think it on that way too.— ayushbajra (@Ayusbajra) April 23, 2021
Motorbikes are generally expensive. Even in the west, cars are cheaper than bikes and for a reason. Yatri motorcycle shocked a lot of people because we’ve been brought up in an economy controlled by Bajaj, Hero and Honda are have only seen bikes for small economy.— Swapnil @ #SelfLockdown (@swwwwwapnil) April 24, 2021
