How Much Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki Bike Prices Increased in 2023

In 2023, the motorcycle industry experienced a notable price hike, often attributed to the depreciation of the Pakistani rupee against the US dollar. Interestingly, even when the exchange rate stabilized in the second half of the year, manufacturers like Yamaha continued to raise prices, often without providing clear explanations.

To illustrate the trend and give a sense of what’s happening in the market, consider the Suzuki GR 150. It’s currently the priciest mainstream motorcycle, retailing at Rs. 547,000. This model also saw the most dramatic price jump in 2023, escalating by Rs. 162,000 from January to December of the previous year.

Let’s delve into the details of how motorcycle prices have surged over 2023.
