Talking chinese pulsar

read about this chinese version of pulsar in times of india. thought it was quite threatening to pulsar's export market . here is the link to the article.

in pulsar's dtsi F1 thread, sajo has mentioned about it but here is the full article.

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/a...ow/1368082.cms

the only thought comes to my mind is that, india is manufacturing its indigenious bikes and scooters and indian manufacturers are a few lot, if this kind of plagiarising occurs where will we indians stand in international market. the articles clearly states that latin american countries are big market for Pulsars. is china really a threat to us with theri way of stealing designs and selling them at low price and grabbing market share.

in one of my discussions with a person who has visited china very often, says that most of indian companies are outsourcing their manufacturing to china to earn good profits. but will this strategy help when the chinese companies will end up making the same kind of product and start selling it in the same market as ours at a cheaper pirce as they have got a ready made technology and all they have to invest is in the production.

i think Indian manufacturers should safe guard their furture interests and should not be captivated by their ( read chinese) tactics to save some money.

my 2 cents

your comments guys.

Its bajajs mistake. They took a chinese to advert there Discover. But now they discovered that Pulsar has a twin called Gulsar..

Nothing new has happened before with a FR-V ( copy of CR- V)

Talking about indians being copy cats, its the chinese who rule supreme at it.. PLEASE

Take it as a compliment that they found something to copy from us. I hope they'll have to copy more.

I have heard that they even have a Pulsar club over in Columbia.

IMHO, Indians should endeavour to do the same, with respect to good Japanese/Euro designs. I mean not blatantly like in the case of the Gulsar, but in a more restrained way. The Japs started out by doing the same.

arre yaar; hyundai is much better in terms of execution, and quality. and besides, they are a world-renowned brand with a respectable portfolio and product-range. this just ain't the same case.

as for the gulsar...perhaps the chinese liked the indian singer so much that they named their bike after it..???

I was in China for 6 months...& the kind of imitation they do is amazing..
With due respect to Intellectual Property Zealots, I am a great fan of their copying skills as a End Customer...After all, it brings down prices & reduces the time to market of new technologies.

My client regularly used to carry out Bug Sweeps in their Engineering Design Centres !!

There was this case of a couple of Chinese Engineers caught red handed copying the blueprints of manufacturing design...They couldnt copy the files on the computers because of Strict Access Controls...
The Chinese engineers did the best think..they used to copy the design BY HAND of the blueprints...
