    Even though I am not a potential buyer in this category, I am pleased with the details and the innovation that Mahindra is bringing to the table compared to the 800 pound Japanese gorilla that they face as their main competition. Why can’t Maruti, (oops Suzuki) can do the same thing in India, and has to depend on silly import of outdated technology from Japan? Mahindra scoter is a good example for the rest of the Indian automotive sector including the component industry, for future development by utilizing the principle of incremental improvements over the competition. Mahindra has done a good job of selling tractors in a highly developed nation like USA, and has become technological leader by utilizing similar principle of incremental improvements (it is not ease to become number one tractor manufacturer in America in volume terms, where every multinational company offers superior products). It is time that they bring this innovative sprit to their SUV business and not depend on a bankrupt Korean company.

    Mahindra is trying to capture the market share of Scooters by launching the GUSTO. It is one of the Good Indian Companies which is following the PMs Narendra Modi’s Mantra for MAKE IN INDIA Slogan.
    I hope this Model is success and gives volumes for Mahindra.
    GUSTO looks very promising from the initial pics. Hoping for a very good Detailed review from Indianautosblog.Website
