Suzuki is planning to achieve ten lakh sales target by 2020 with new products and expansion of dealerships
Suzuki Motorcycle India Limited is aiming to retail a total of seven lakh units in the domestic market through the current financial year. It is at a growth of 40 percent over what it managed to sell in the last fiscal (FY18) with over five lakh units. The Japanese two-wheeler major is riding high in India courtesy of new launches.
The Burgman Street 125 is the newest scooter and even though being based on the Access 125, it comes with several premium features and has a dashing look to back it up. Priced at Rs. 68,000 (ex-showroom, New Delhi), it is the first maxi-scooter in India in a long time and has long and cushioned seat for rider and pillion comfort.
Important features offered in the Suzuki Burgman Street 125 are all-digital instrument console, chrome accents on body panels, LED headlamp, position lamp and tail lamp, multi-function key slot, generous 21.5 L under seat storage capacity, 12V DC charging socket and optional USB charger.
Following the Burgman’s launch, Suzuki is planning to expand its sales network, from 1,000 touch points, by adding around 200 more in the current financial year and it is in line with the brand’s target of achieving 10 lakh unit sales by the end of this decade.
To get there, Suzuki will be introducing new two-wheelers and expand its footprint with more dealerships. Suzuki’s India division already contributes to a whopping 35 percent of the total volume for parent company Suzuki Motor Corporation (SMC).
Suzuki Motorcycle India and its parent SMC are working on bringing electric two-wheelers to the market in the not-so-distant future as the first product is tipped for arrival by 2020 when other mainstream manufacturers are expected to open their account as far as zero-emission mobility is concerned. Suzuki has also started working towards updating its lineup to comply with BSVI emission norms right before the deadline of April 2020.
