Japanese two-wheeler maker Yamaha is setting up a separate company for selling its products in India as it looks to increase sales here. India Yamaha Motor (IYM) said the separate sales and marketing vertical - Yamaha Motor India Sales (YMIS) - will be responsible for pushing sales and marketing initiatives.

"Yamaha sees great potential in the Indian market and this vertical would aim at connecting with a larger customer base with innovative marketing strategies," the company said in a statement.

Commenting on the development, Asano said: "The restructuring will help us to intensify our marketing effort. It is done envisaging our emergence as a market leader in time to come."

The company sold 29,785 units in the domestic market in January as against 26,300 units in the same month of last year, a growth of 13.2 percent.
