Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited (SMIPL), a subsidiary of Suzuki Motor Corporation (SMC), Japan, is targeting annual sales of 10 lakh two-wheelers in the country by 2020. Bullish on the two-wheeler market of India, Suzuki said the company would focus on the new launches in the premium scooter and bike segments in coming years.
"India is one of the most important markets for Suzuki's two-wheeler business. We are looking to sell one million units annually by 2020," the Press Trust of India quoted Suzuki Motorcycle India incumbent Managing Director Masayoshi as saying.
In the coming years, Suzuki will also have launches in the 125cc-scooter and 150cc-and-above bike segments in India to achieve the new target of 10 lakh by 2020. Suzuki hopes to sell 3.2 lakh units in India in the current fiscal as against 3.45 lakh units in the previous fiscal.
