    As a pilot project, Flipkart had started selling TVS Motors India entire range in Bangalore, which will be made available nationwide from May onwards. Products from all major Two-Wheeler brands will be added on Flipkart marketplace in the next 2-3 months.

    Adarsh Menon, vice-president for electronics and automobiles, Flipkart said,
    "We had launched the automotive category in April 2015 by commencing sale of auto accessories on our platform. We have witnessed 600% year-on-year growth in sales of auto accessories and auto electronics. In two wheelers we did a pilot with TVS Motor in Bengaluru and will start sales nationwide next month. All major two-wheeler brands would be on our platform shortly."
    Given the market acceptance, Menon said the automotive category has emerged to be among the five fastest growing verticals in Flipkart as of now; others being smartphones, fashion, large appliances and furniture.
    "We aim to provide a transparent and smooth end-to-end experience to consumers purchasing automobiles on our platform be it pricing or delivery. The target is to corner a2% share in the domestic two-wheeler market by the end of the year. Automotive is definitely a core focus area."
    FLipkarts competitor Snapdeal also launched Snapdeal Motors a platform offering an "integrated buying experience" for automobiles by enabling online booking and loan approvals within two minutes of a vehicle purchase on the site - in November last year.

    Selling accessories is one thing while selling automobiles is another. What an imbecile idea, and if you club it with their returns handling you'd have to be retarded to book a vehicle online without going to the dealer.

    Ironically, I don't see Kawasaki listed on FK (Bangalore) anymore! Wondering what happened!

    I think only booking will be done through online mode, delivery will be from your local dealer showroom.

    Below are the terms I got from Flipkart page for apache rtr.

    - The amount mentioned on Flipkart is only the booking amount

    - Balance payment and other formalities will be directly handled by the dealer

    - Once the balance payment has been made, the order cannot be cancelled

    - This order is not eligible for Cash on Delivery or Return

    - The delivery date promised is subject to the completion of payment and other formalities at the dealership, within 3 days of booking on Flipkart

    - The prices mentioned above are only indicative and are subject to change. Please check the final on-road price with the dealer prior to your purchase. Flipkart shall not be responsible for any loss caused as a result of such price change, as such changes are made at the sole discretion of the Brand

    - By purchasing this product, the customer agrees that his/her personal information shared with Flipkart will be passed on to the Brand to fulfill this order and for future communication for purposes they may deem fit

    Though the idea is innovative, problems may arise if a last-mile customer wants to buy a bike.

    if you have to pay and do the formalities at the dealership then why would anyone book a vehicle from these websites?? Why not just go to the dealership and book

    Online booking swag! :P

    They said delivery within 3 days after payment is made. So maybe no waiting period?

    Every Motorcycle has a tale to be told and there is no greater privilage in the life of a rider than to have truly understood what his Motorcycle stands to tell. Some of the greatest stories in the world are not written, they are experienced.

    Few points which comes to my mind are:

    Quick processing with Flipkart tie up direct with manufacturer.

    Maybe little discount ranging upto 1K


    Other than that it's just online craze it seems.
