Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited (SMIPL) rolled out its three millionth vehicle out of its Gurgaon plant in Haryana, riding on the success of its flagship scooter Access and range of bikes under the brand Gixxer.

The two wheeler company is a subsidiary of the Japanese giant Suzuki Motor Corporation which started selling two wheelers in February 2006. One of its first products, the Suzuki Access 125, was one of the biggest challengers to India’s most-popular scooter Honda Activa, which has clocked more than 13 million units since its launch in 2000.

Suzuki Motorcycles sells sports and big-engine bikes called Gixxer, and a commute bike called Hayate, besides another youth scooter called Let’s.

The success of Gixxer series and the new Access 125 played a crucial role in clocking three million customers.

“We are delighted to have achieved this remarkable feat which stands as a testament to the continued customer confidence and support and dedication of our employees, dealers and suppliers. Our vehicles have gained immense popularity by fulfilling our commitment to quality across markets. We have witnessed a rapid growth since the past few years and we are confident about further reinforcing our position in the market.”

SMIPL manufactures two-wheelers 540,000 units per annum at its Gurgaon plant.
