India Yamaha Motor organized its Kidz Yamaha Safe Riding Science program in Gurgaon which was well-attended by 100 students between eight to thirteen years of age from Ryan International School. The day long program was divided into two sessions – the classroom session and the practical session where the techniques were taught by the Yamaha licensed trainers. The practical session saw the kids being taught the relevance of road safety, riding gear and riding skills on the Yamaha TTR 50 and PW 50 bikes.
The program is a part of Yamaha Safe Riding Science (YSRS) initiative which was launched in India in 2008. Jun Nakata, director, sales and marketing, India Yamaha Motor, said, “We want to teach the kids about the nuances of riding safely so that when they grow up and start riding bikes, they are well aware of the traffic safety and proper riding techniques.”
