New Delhi, May 12 (UNI) Japanese auto giant, Yamaha will launch two bike models, R15 and FZ in the country before Diwali, Executive vice-president Takahiro Maeda said today.

''The two superbikes R15 and FZ will be launched before Diwali.

One of them will be launched quite soon,'' Mr Maeda said.

The company would initially sell the bikes from five retail outlets in four cities -- Ahmedabad, Chennai, New Delhi and Bangalore which would be increased to 50 by mid 2010.

Yamaha, which did not have any major success in the Indian market, had earlier launched two sport bikes 1,680 cc engine powered MT01 and 998 cc YZF R1 last December.

Giving details about the response, Mr Maeda said about 50 bikes of the two models have already been sold throughout India.

''The maximum sale is done in Delhi and Bangalore,'' Mr Maeda revealed.

The company operates in the domestic market through a wholly-owned subsidiary Yamaha Motor.
