    This mindset of determining the target price below 3 lakhs , 5 lakhs has to change. If this bike had come from Yamaha or Suzuki, you would have put the price tag somewhere in the region of 7 lakhs for sure. Hero does not mean necessarily cheap. They may not be able to localize most of the parts used in this bike. So don’t expect it to be below 5 lakhs. Moreover the profit margin in these bikes is the highest as they are not volume driven. Why do think Bajaj is concentrating on niche bikes rather than entry level volume bikes.

      Sushrut,

      The reason for a 3 L proximity is the ability to localise. Yamaha and Suzuki don’t have volumes and if you look at their sales, none of them are crossing the 500 mark.

      On the other side look at Bajaj-kTM 390 … localisation above 90%, so why do you think for a 600CC …. 3L is not a target.

      Stop thinking brands start with the Logic of Indian TAX structure which promotes local production and development.

      If Hero is planning this bike for India and wants it to be a seller, that is the target price band. Affordability is the key in Indian Market.
