TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:7272)(ISIN:JP3942800008) announced today that in the first half of its fiscal year ending December 31, 2017, consolidated net sales of 828.1 billion yen were up 6.4% from the previous year.

In emerging markets, motorcycle sales rose and operating income was significantly higher thanks to sales of higher priced products and cost reductions due to the advancement of platform-based products. In developed markets, motorcycles, marine, industrial machinery & robot products and electrically power-assisted bicycles contributed to increased sales and income.

Motorcycle net sales rose 6.6%, supported by brisk business in emerging markets, and operating income soared 86.8% due to a more competitive product mix and lower costs. Marine business net sales rose 5.5% on the strength of outboard motor sales in North America. Power products declined 4.0% but industrial machinery and robots climbed 30.4%, boosted by surface mounter unit sales. Drive units for electrically power-assisted bicycles surged in Europe.

For the year, Yamaha Motor forecasts net sales rising 8.5% to 1,630.0 billion yen, operating income rising 24.3% to 135.0 billion yen, and net income attributable to parent company shareholders rising 42.5% to 90.0 billion yen.
