+1.

Lifestyle product is fine. Will be interesting to see how M&M will do this - both technically & with the brand name. They need a good product to be seen more in the 2-wheeler market.

I just hope they dont do a Datsun (using a old name on some crap models ).

My 2 Paise:

One can't design / conceive / come up with an Lifestyle Motorcycle... if he isn't Mad about Bikes / Doesn't ride bikes.

I hope everyone gets the drift.

The question is whether it will be a large enough space under the sun to be commercially viable.

may be mahindra should consider bringing all these brand's best and should start with the Django scoot from peugeot, that thing IMHO is a serious vespa killer.

Can't say if the styling will be a huge hit with the masses, it looks kinda interesting. Plus i dont know if the brand has any recall value(with the masses). But Mahindra needs to think of something soon if they want to be in the game.

though from a different brand, it exudes lambretta from all angles, add to that period specific dual tone body panels. the single seat version with a carriage is all a pillion hater would need

Yes, the rear treatment is very Lambretta/Vijay super(ish). It is indeed in the Vespa space, but not sure if i agree with it being a Vespa killer(Mahindras are just not selling, even with decent products). But who knows?
OT: Honda could try launching a retro style scooter under a limited edition offer. Or maybe a Maxi Scooter.
