Suzuki Auto Expo 2018: Plans announced…
Suzuki has shot in a press release announcing their Auto Expo 2018 plans and it appears they don’t want to get labelled as one of the dullest motorcycle stalls of this year, like they did in our list of 2016.
Suzuki’s pavilion is in Hall no 2 and they will showcase a total of 17 models which will include motorcycles as well as scooters. This plan is a part of Suzuki’s realigned product strategy of moving away from the extreme commuter segment and focus on more exciting products for the domestic market. Recently introduced Intruder is a classic example of what to expect!
Without divulging the details they have announced that they will introduce products in ‘new and exciting‘ segments. These products will help the company to achieve the Mission 1 million (sales) by 2020.
Suzuki Auto Expo 2018 – Product Lineup
This is the partly revealed line-up Suzuki will have on showcase…
- Suzuki Ecstar Moto GP race bike – GSX-RR
- Gixxer Cup racing model (we tested one in 2015 – link to review)
- Motocross motorcycles – 2018 RM-Z450, RM-Z250 and DR-Z70
- Intruder (in both colours Metallic Oort/Metallic Matt Black No 2, and Glass Sparkle Black/Metallic Matt Titanium Silver)
Untold Models: Expectations
Obviously its too early for Suzuki to let the buzz fizzle out and hence they have not talked about the new motorcycles and scooters it will unveil. Among them, we are almost sure of the recently busted Burgman Street.
There may be some more Gixxer models on show but we are more interested to know what is coming in the 200-400 cc space from the company – of which there are already rumours! We already have some sneaks coming in…
