Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
Suzuki Motorcycle India will launch an entry-level motorcycle in the next fiscal year.
Entry-level motorcycles are those with engine capacities more than 75 cc and less than 125 cc. Even a layman knows this segment is dictated by Hero Honda, who has 80% of the pie in its lunch box.
In the next fiscal, Suzuki will also import completely built units (CBUs) of its 1,000 cc GSX-R model encouraged by the success of the Hayabusa and Intruder, which cost Rs 12.5 lakhs each, and together sold about 100 units since their launch 8 months ago.
