I guess I went it some year back, it just time pass nothing else. All accessories vendors specially Two wheelers will be there, including Battery operated Scooter will find major space in this. And some Bike Modifier specially into Choopers will find some space too. At last you will find classics on display. Don't remember If I saw something else too. No way close to Auto Expo.

From what i can gather, there won't be any pre-launch car on display. Only recently launched and/or special versions, like Hyundai i20, Scorpio Hybrid and so on.

I went there!
It was too small, there was nothing new or interesting.

It was good to look at i20 closely and X6 too.

Nothing much to talk about other than that.

We instead went and saw the adjoining photofair, which was better off, at least some new things! Did you know samsung had a SLR range!
