Hayabusa the world's fastest bike, which got it's maximum popularity through the movie "Dhoom" in India, is finally on the Indian roads officially.
Even in these days of recession, Suzuki aims to sell around 350-400 bikes in one year, i.e. around 1 bike per year.According to the company, it has already got orders for around 38 bikes.
Depending upon the response to these products, Suzuki —among the largest manufacturer of bikes in the world after fellow Japanese makers Honda, Yamaha and Kawasaki—also plans to bring its GSX -R series of motorcycles to India.
“We are currently evaluating the market. A lot of the product launches depend on the market response to the Hayabusa and Intruder, though we are expecting higher demand for the much smaller GSX-R sport bikes, which are in the 400 cc to 600 cc range of engine power,” Mr Gupta said.
