Not meaning any disrespect to Khun Tum, but I did not see he had any effect whatsover on Yamaha's choice of bikes to import. You have to talk to the big boys down in BKK for that. but maybe more than that one needs some more competition to come onboard, such as KTM, now arriving and Honda??? and maybe better performance from the Yamaha group before they can afford to expand. Chiang Mai folks are well covered for sales and service for a number of makes, as is BKK of course and to some extent Phuket, but for a large part of Thailands population these places are just too far away for most people to make the investment, and the service journeys.Franz wrote: Now that Khun Tum has left Yamaha CNX, I'm even less confident in any further positive development..... :cry: .
