We have a strong pipeline of new products in both scooter and premium motorcycle segments, which we will launch in the coming months.”

The 125cc segment in particular has been expanding at a rapid pace, witnessing a growth of over 75% year-to-date this fiscal. The 125cc segment, therefore, is a focus area for us and we are strategically following a multi brand approach in this space.
