Suzuki with its new Hayabusa ( LY Zero volumes ) is confident to have a representation in the upper premium segment. However, the Indian Mass market is where the volumes of the Indian Bike and scooter Industry come from and Suzuki does require stronger models in these segments. Both variants of the Gixxer continue to drop drastically and the Intruder doesn't seem to gain any momentum. It's time for Suzuki two-wheeler to learn from it's sibling in the car segment as to what works in the Indian Auto Industry and adapt faster than what is currently being done.
