HIi Friends,
To my best of knowledge, this is the "Hitodi" moped, even I had a Fuel tank of this machine,(I picked it by mistake, thinking of Yezdi Jet

The Sportif had a battery, indicators, self starter, alloys and looked very chic in the silver colour.
The manufacturers M/s Chamundi Mopeds, Mysore wound up soon reporting losses and thats how the Sportif production in India stopped. Peugeot has not had any success with their cars too in India.The 309 bombed.
Hi Mole,
just every thing is correct,except, it had "Sheet Metal Split" Spoked wheels not ALLOYs.......this is a info about Sportif, will post pics soon, have to search in my albums

This is a very good moped indeed. Shame they stopped production.

Do we know if that company who used to produce this mope is still around in any other shape or form

I don't think any of these are still around to be bought are they ??

Chanu: Those are no alloy wheels, they were pressed sheet metal. Mr. Muthu, your right, it was kinetic's safari that had the same type of wheels.

powertwin I do not have a digital image of this moped.May have a publicity brochure but the picture you have linked to is quite OK.
It was much ahead of its time and was not hence accepted by the market.

I will when I go to their house the next time. 'hope the bike's still there. The gent seldom disposes of anything that he has, much to his son's (my friend's) chagrin.
He also had a mk4 Amby for about 20 years, which he never wanted to sell even after they bought a Ford Ikon, until he finally did only a few months ago!
