Now ‘Lakhtakia Car’ is sparkling in the news in whole media and likely to buzz in the Indian market soon but it will not be easily available for every one because of its extreme demand before coming on the road, whereas ‘Singur’ matter is still unsolved.
But on the same Venue, Auto Expo-2008 in Pragati Maidan, Delhi, there is extremely good news for adventure bike lovers as Bajaj Auto Ltd has announced to introduce ‘super bikes’ manufactured by its permanent technical partner Kawasaki Motors Corp. Japan first time in India.
Addressing to media on January 11 in Auto Expo hall no 03 at Pragati Maidan, Rajiv Bajaj, the Chairman of Bajaj Auto Ltd, said “Both companies have synergised their strengths to widen the portfolio in their respective markets. The domestic customer can now experience the power of big biking,”
Bajaj and Kawasaki have singed a deal to sell their products as under mutual exchange policy in which Bajaj will sell top super bikes of Kawasaki in India’s exclusive probiking showrooms from the mid of this year, while Kawasaki will promote Bajaj’s product in overseas. Kawasaki is already selling some models of Bajaj bikes in Philippines.

BAL is also planning to open 10 more exclusive probiking showrooms across the country by March 2008.

All the four models of Kawasaki were earlier designed to sell in US, Europe in Japan, but now it will also run on dusty Indian roads.
