Indian two-wheeler scenario is constantly changing in the country. There are more buyers of premium and luxury motorcycles than ever before.
Manufacturers as well have also taken a bold step and have brought their entire range of products to India. Suzuki Motorcycles is now planning of locally assembling their superbikes.
They plan to begin with their Hayabusa superbike, which is popular among several Indians. Suzuki's Manesar facility in Haryana will take on this mammoth task of assembly.
Suzuki realises that India is a growing economy and there is huge potential. If they could lower pricing of their superbikes, there will surely be more buyers of their motorcycles.
The make in India wave is reaching almost every manufacturer and they are trying ways to exploit it. Currently there are heavy taxes to vehicles that are directly imported into India.
Hayabusa is Suzuki's flagship motorcycle and it was once the fastest two-wheeler on Earth. With local assembly Suzuki could reduce the price by INR 5,00,000 for its Hayabusa.
The Japanese manufacturer currently has priced its Hayabusa at INR 15,95,000 ex-showroom, Mumbai. With commencement of local assembly Hayabusa could be priced competitively at INR 10,95,000 ex-showroom.
