    Default TVS Victor in Africa

    For some of you it won't be a new thing. But for rest, Did you know that TVS Victor is used a Taxi in Africa?

    Not only TVS but other bikes from India are very popular among African countries. 2-wheelers as cabs are much in demand compared Auto Rickshaws!

    Some pics from Kigali, Rwanada.

    Nice find. Good to see an Indian brand on foreign shores.

    Dude, Rwanda is most under-developed nation in the world. I want TVS and Bajaj to export to Japan/UK/US

    HMSI is exporting CBF stunner to UK as 'inter-city' commuter and sells at MRSP 1800 sterlings (~Rs.1.5lacs), that's good foreign exchange earner and good respect for 'made in india' tag in a competitive market of a developed country.

    Iran is actually quite better off than even us in many many ways. But that's another topic altogether

    Here's a pic from my trip in 2006.



    All said and done, who cares where they sell as long as they make the money they want to?
