    Bro don’t mind, I got a confusion.
    Are you talking about VoltaMotors( of India or VoltaMotorbikes( of Spain ?
    You are saying that it is developed entirely in India but you are displaying “bcn-sport” and “bcn-city” of VoltaMotorbikes which are not developed in India. Are both the companies are of same origin?
    PS:Don’t mind my English
