Bajaj dreams big. When will it deliver though!?!
Read in an interview with head honcho Rajiv Bajaj.
Some interesting excerpts:
"We are not looking at quantity," he says. "Honda globally sells four to six times the number of bikes we do, so numbers don't matter." No? "Our aim," he continues, "is to make the next most powerful bike, create a new technological benchmark, make bikes powered with over 200cc engines (it is launching a 220cc Pulsar soon) and sell our products globally."
Says Religare's Jain: "Two-wheeler sales will peak in India in the next three to four years, so you need to hedge your bets and get into emerging and underdeveloped markets. That might also be the reason for Bajaj Auto wanting to diversify into the four-wheeler market with LCVs.
I will continue with Kawasaki as long as I cannot make a bike faster than theirs. They are my teachers. We are working on a 300cc bike.
I don't know if there is a market for it, but that is what critics had said about the Pulsar. Remember, the seven series of BMW is its highest seller.
