    Guys, you forgot one entire scooter company - Vijay super. I remember they'd Vijay super Mark II & III as our neighbours owned one.

    Then comes Lamby or Lambretta 150

    One of the most important mopeds from Ideal Java, Yezdi COLT. Here's the entire line up of Yezdi/Java motorcycles that went out of production...
    Yezdi Deluxe
    Yezdi Roadking
    Yezdi CLII
    Yezdi Classic
    Yezdi 175 (This & Monarch was almost a rare breed like COLT)
    Yezdi Moarch

    One of the mopeds that failed to convince people was Kinetic King

    Though, Silver Plus & Explorer are mentioned earlier, I'm attaching the links of pics here. Silver plus (not sure on Explorer) was manufactured with collaboration of Zundapp motors in Germany.

    The entire range of Yamaha Rx series that went out of production were...
    Yamaha Rx100
    Yamaha RXG
    Yamaha RXZ
    Yamaha Rx135 4S
    Yamaha Rx135 4S Catcon
    Yamaha Rx135 5S
    Yamaha RXZ 5S

    Again in the Rajdoot series, one of them is Rajdoot ACE, which quite made me feel that Escorts started giving importance to "style". It was their mere attempt to make the bike look sportier

    From the Hero group, these are the ones I can recall today - Hero Panther. From the Hero Honda front, I loved the looks of Sleek & infact had few of them cut from the magazine & put all over my room those days . Though Harish had mentioned above, here's how it looks.

    Anyone remembers Garelli series from Avanti? Here's 4 of their products, which I'm sure is extinct.

    Talking about Enfield, I couldn't miss Mofa, the first Indian moped that yielded 90 Kmpl & required no registration.

    Talking about TVS, TVS Spectra is one of their product that I wish they never launched. The very sight of the rear, I felt "yuck"

    Has anyone heard about Narmada scooters? As I child, I was finding difficult differentiating between Narmada & Vespa (for that matter even now).

    Talking about LML, in less than a decade 2 of their models LML Adreno & LML Energy were a complete flop & they're a rare sight on roads these days. Probably the first motorcycle in India to feature 3 valves per cylinder concept. Like wise one of their scooter LML Supremo also failed to succeed.

    From the Kinetic's stable, I remember GF125 was released along with Boss & both of them failed very promptly. Not sure when GF170 Laser was launched; and then spot 5 differences between Kinetic Challenger & Boss apart from the graphics. Seriously, I too don't know.

    Will keep updating this thread as & when I remember
