The company looks forward to continuing its sales momentum in the country. “This is a testament to our commitment to India and we hope to achieve many such milestones in the future. We thank our valued customers, business partners, colleagues and all colleagues for this extraordinary achievement,” said Director Suzuki Indian Motorcycles General Manager Kenichi Umeda said.
In the fiscal year ending March 2023, the company achieved record sales of 938,000 vehicles, a year-on-year increase of 24.3% compared to the 2021-22 fiscal year. The company said the increase in sales figures indicated increasing demand for its two-wheelers in both domestic and overseas markets.
Last fiscal year, the company also entered the 250cc adventure sports segment with the introduction of the V-Strom SX. Highly regarded for its versatility, this bike is designed for the daily commute, long road rides, and rough terrain.
Based on the “toughness in a slim case” design philosophy, it features a rugged, adventure-inspired exterior. The slim case refers to the motorcycle’s slender profile and compact engine encased in a “protector-like” casing. The rounded chassis forms the backbone of the V-Strom SX.
