The announcement comes in line with Yamaha’s commitment to strengthen its premium retail footprint in the Indian market, to ensure that every customer gets to experience a supreme buying and ownership experience.
A Blue Square showroom is a customer’s gateway into the world of Yamaha Racing, and every section in the premium outlet is designed to evoke a sense of pride, of being associated with a global brand with strong roots in international motorsports. This has allowed the brand to form an instant connect with its customers, as ‘Blue’ is a representation of the Yamaha’s proud racing legacy and ‘Square’ symbolizes a platform created for customers to connect with the brand’s philosophy of offering ‘Exciting, sporty and stylish’ range of products.
Apart from the AEROX 155 that is exclusively sold through Blue Square, the premium outlets also showcase an attractive display of other Yamaha motorcycles and scooters followed by genuine accessories, apparels, and spare parts. The showrooms also serve as a platform for customers to be a part of the Blue Streaks rider community, through which they can interact with like-minded riders and experience their Yamaha machines together.
With the newly launched outlets, Yamaha currently has 7 Blue Square showrooms operational in West Bengal and 25 in Tamil Nadu. In total, the premium Blue Square showroom footprint across India stands at 80 outlets, with showrooms in Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry, Karnataka, Jharkhand, Orissa, Assam, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Jammu & Kashmir, Chhattisgarh, Bihar, Delhi, and other North-Eastern States.

We will reach out to a wider set of customers who aim to make motorcycling a part of their lifestyle. Additionally, we will intensify our promotion activities and expand our network of premium Blue Square stores to provide customers a delightful experience.”
A new brand campaign film on ‘The Call of the Blue’ Version 3.0 was also released today. The film portrays the aspiration levels of owning a Yamaha and how every Yamaha product enriches the lifestyle of the youth from different walks of life. It also showcases how the aspirations of the youth turn into reality, as they ride together to create new memories and evolve with “The Call of the Blue”.
Under this refreshing brand campaign, Yamaha is further revving up the excitement quotient, offering a premium ownership experience to all its customers by organizing engagement activities like – ‘The Call of the Blue Track Day’, ‘Blue Streaks’ Ride and ‘The Call of the Blue Weekend’.
Also, to amplify its presence in the premium segment, the company is aggressively expanding its current network of over 80 Blue Square showrooms, offering its customers a platform to interact with the brand and enjoy unique buying and ownership experience.
