Suzuki records a sales jump of 61 percent in October
Suzuki which is a clear leader in the four wheeler segment with Maruti is yet to get a definite ground in the two wheeler segment. But the company which now has a couple of products in the offing for the customers is registering impressive growth. Suzuki Motorcycle India has reported a 60.51 per cent growth in sales in October at 25,439 units compared with 15,849 units in the same month last year. The company has attributed its growth to the good response for its motorcycle GS150R, scooter Access125 and the recently launched bike SlingShot.
Suzuki has also brought in premium motorcycles in a hope to attract to niche segment. The company offers the globally revered superbike Hayabua along with a couple of other premium offerings in the selected cities.But this exercise is seen as a image enhancing process rather than adding to the numbers.
“We have received very good response from the market to all our products including the newly-launched, Suzuki SlingShot. We are committed to continue this growth momentum in future,” the Suzuki Motorcycle India Vice-President (Sales and Marketing), Atul Gupta, said in a statement.
