    Not sure, but globally Suzuki are the bottom of the Jap pile at the moment, at least in terms of profit, so may be it makes more sense for them to do this

    Speaks volumes about Suzuki's quality control of localized parts available in India. They must launch the FI Gixxer in India soon, to keep that edge. If they had brought the Gixxer155 before the Yamaha FZ, I can undoubtedly say it would've been a different story!

    This is a 2001 article from HMSI stating that they intend to export to Japan/Latin America/Turkey and Mexico which I think they're already doing by now since this article speaks of doing it before 2004. I do know that the Unicorns were exported to Latin America.

    Think the cbf125 sold in the UK till some time ago was the Indian made stunner. This has now been replaced by an updated 125 which I think is made in china/thailand.
