Located in the Amuwo Odofin industrial zone, the plant is expected to produce 70,000 units by 2018. The plant will assemble two motorcycle models: the Yamaha Crux and the Force X Royale, both destined for the Nigerian market. A showroom will present other Yahama products such as outboard engines, personal watercrafts (WaveRunner), all terrain vehicles (ATV), generateurs and Yamalube lubricant products. In Nigeria, all of these products will be exclusively distributed by CFAO Yamaha Motor Nigeria Limited.
The assembly plant and showroom inaugurated last Friday are the result of a partnership signed between CFAO and Yamaha at the end of 2014. This partnership aims at meeting demand from the Nigerian market and supporting the government’s drive to strengthen the country’s industrial base.
