Suzuki Motorcycle India is developing four new products which would be launched in the next two years, says a report in ET Auto.

A 100 cc commuter and a Gixxer-based 155 cc commuter are believed to be in the works alongside two scooters.

Earlier reports suggested that the Japanese two-wheeler maker would have four scooters out of six new products that are lined up in the mid-term.

In a bid to achieve volumes, Suzuki would also focus on making India a motorcycle hub with target markets such as Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, in addition to neighboring countries like Nepal.
