    There is nothing much wrong with Suzuki bikes, their service is good enough, their bikes make good torque for city (specially the 125cc ones). Not to mention one of the most fuel efficient 150cc bike we ever saw, in form of GS150.


    Their justification on Hayabusa itself being a brand ambassador for other products (some manager said this in a video interview) is completely unreasonable. The reason is that every Japanese company now has something from the international market on offer, and secondly we see such imported bikes so less that it doesn't matter anymore.


    By saying that we need a 250cc, you've hit the nail right on the head! And nobody is saying that they go sporty. You can do it with torque-mileage combo too.

    They can get a carburetted 250cc 4 valve for the budget/ mileage conscious, and match the CBR, Karizma, etc. with much lesser price than CBR and slightly below Karizma.
    For Suzuki's sales and future, I would say "Strategy" is the keyword here, not performance.

    Yamaha June 2011 Sales [Source: Businessline]

    Two-wheeler maker India Yamaha Motor on Friday reported 29.98 per cent increase in its total sales in June at 36,595 units. The company had sold 28,155 units in the same month last year, India Yamaha Motor said in a statement.

    In the domestic market, the company’s sales stood at 27,263 units as against 21,157 units in the same month last year, up 28.86 per cent.

    Exports of India Yamaha rose by 33.35 per cent to 9,332 units from 6,998 units in the year-ago period, it added.

    Hero Moto ramping Scooter production
    While Hero Honda (soon to be renamed Hero MotorCorp) is ramping up capacity by over 50 per cent to manufacture half a million scooters in this fiscal, HMSI is readying itself to launch a fourth product after the existing Activa, Dio and Aviator. Hero Honda has only one product in the segment Pleasure. The capacity expansion programme will enable the Munjals-controlled Hero group to close the gap with market leader HMSI.

    HMSI, which sold 893,335 scooters in the country last fiscal, has a market share of 43 per cent. HHML with sales of 342,991 units in 2010-11 comes a distant third with market share of 16.5 per cent.
    Anil Dua, senior vice-president (sales & marketing, Hero Honda Motor Limited (HHML) said: Our scooter sales have outgrown that of the overall two-wheeler category last year. Sales of Pleasure have shot up 70 per cent over the previous year. We are now increasing capacity to roll out 2,300 scooters a day from the earlier 1,500 units. HHML sells around 35,000 units of Pleasure every month.

    Hero scooters to race against Honda

    Pleasure remains most searched Hero Honda Product on google !!

    HMSI

    HMSI has been investing to scale up motorcycle sales in India an area where former partner HHML has a stronghold. The company recently announced an investment of Rs 1,400 crore to double capacity to 1.2 million units at its second plant in Tapukara, Rajasthan, and to set up a third plant in Karnataka this fiscal. Besides, the company plans to introduce core products in the mass commuter segment (100-110 cc) to challenge HHMLs dominance.

    Hero Moto & HMSI on steroids !!

    Wink lazy suzuki two-wheelers

    Are you kidding?? Suzuki two-wheeler division is very lazy. Their products and price is good, but style of their products is very boring. They dont upgrade styling of their products. Also, except Access, all suzuki products are too heavy; they have bad power-to-weight ratio.

    Worse, there is not even a proper website for Access or Gs150r that shows a close-up picture of the scooter/bike and its various features.

    Suzuki's top-most manager in India does not even put some effort to give a new statement every month while commenting on their sales performance. Even next month he will repeat this:

    "Commenting on the June sales performance, SMIPL Vice-President (Sales and Marketing) Atul Gupta said, "We have received very good response from the market to all our products."

    "The growing customer satisfaction among present owners of Suzuki products has led to a positive word-of-mouth in the market. We are committed to give the best to our customers," he added."

    They seem to be very happy with suzuki (maruti) car sales, so they are neglecting bikes. With this kind of lazy attitude from suzuki, they are going to lag behind in the Indian market for a long long time.

    Sometimes luck matters in market, we have seen in past that some good bikes have failed miserably.., Yamaha 100cc bikes, LML Freedom, Kinetic Challenger/ Velocity, Kawasaki Wind125, HH Achiever/Ambition etc etc. People owning these bikes still write songs on their bikes.
    According to me Slingshot is segment best, very torquey, best LET, GSR150 is also great contender in 150cc segment, mix of many good things.
    As rightly pointed, Suzuki is strongly focussed on cars than bikes, hope they get up from slumber soon.
