John's existing contract is going to expire by March-end. Considering the response the company has received with the endorsement of its product by the actor, Yamaha Motors India Limited (YMIL) decided to extend it.
    
"We have extended the contract with John Abraham for the next two years," YMIL VP Sales and Marketing Roy Kurian told reporters in Greater Noida at the Auto Expo.
    
The actor, who visited the Yamaha Pavilion on Friday at the Auto Expo in Greater Noida, and is a 'big fan' of the brand, quipped that if the company had not extended the contract, he would have gone to YMIL managing director Masaki Asano to seek an extension.
    
Apart from John, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone also endorses Yamaha.
    
YMIL had signed Deepika Padukone in July 2012 as the face of Yamaha Scooters in India.
