Mr Nandi said:

The real biking States for us are the four in the South and Maharashtra. In Maharashtra, we hope to be No 1 in six months though this will take slightly longer in Tamil Nadu where the gap is longer. We hope that growth will continue for us and believe there will be an inflection point, which is not too far away in the INR 1-2.5 lakh segment. KTM will benefit the most when this happens.
