Yamaha signs Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone to endorse its scooter range

All set to make its grand entry into the Indian scooter market, India Yamaha Motor announced that it has signed-up Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone as the face of Yamaha Scooters in India. This is the first time that the actress will endorse an automobile product
and Yamaha is upbeat that her feminine yet sporty disposition will gel easily with the Indian target audience. While Deepika will endorse the scooter section of Yamaha, John Abraham will continue to be the brand ambassador of the company's flagship bikes.

As per the deal, Deepika will make appearances in commercials which are already lined up. The bubbly and active image of the actress will complement the sporty and stylish scooter that Yamaha has to offer to its female customers which will primarily be under the age of 24 years. This visual connection will provide appropriate value addition to the brand and will bring the product alive onscreen. Moreover, she appeals to the Indian youth both through her movies and her off screen appearances. Her stature in the film industry goes well with Yamaha's current positioning in the two-wheeler industry.

"We are very pleased with our alliance with Deepika Padukone to endorse our scooter 'Ray' which just like Deepika signifies 'Cool & Beauty'. Being young, fit, sporty and stylish, Deepika has all the elements that our customers will subscribe to when they buy our scooters. The youth adore her, respect her and follow her because she signifies an inherent sense of style that easily blends in with that of brand Yamaha. We look forward to have a longstanding and fruitful association with her," said Hiroyuki Suzuki, CEO and MD, India Yamaha Motor Pvt.Ltd.

"Yamaha has been a preferred brand with the youth who understand and connect well with technology, performance and the spirit of sporting endeavors. We have replicated these inherent ingredients in our scooters as well for the aspiring Indian women under the age of 24 years. We do expect the women customers to become a core part of our future growth strategy," he further added.
