It may not be the best of times for the two wheeler industry but 2008 has been a busy year for the high-end bike segment. Yamaha, Ducati, Honda, are all here. And Wednesday saw Suzuki launch its famed Hayabusa in the country.
The 1,300cc bike sports bike is priced at Rs 12.5 lakh (ex-showroom) in Delhi. It also launched a cruiser, the Intruder M1800R, at the same price.
"The sports bike category is small but growing... we want to sell over 300 units of the two bikes every year," said Atul Gupta, vice president sales and marketing, Suzuki Motorcycle India.
