          Very good growth from every company except Bajaj (it's time to think for them). And where are the figures from suzuki ? I have observed that TVS, Bajaj and Hero releases their monthly sales figures regularly, Mahindra and Yamaha irregularly, Honda sometimes & suzuki not at all .

            It's time Bajaj sits up and takes notice. They can't be too complacent.

                    Interesting figures, when I add them up the Indian companies are selling about 1.5 million two wheelers a month which is substantial considering the middle class constitutes approximately 25% of the population who can afford these. They will soon be hitting the commodity point where the margins go down because everyone who can afford one will own one so they will have to innovate and try to move up the value chain which Bajaj seems to have realized quick.
