Default Bridgestone India enters 2-wheeler tyre market with Neurun

Bridgestone India has launched their first two-wheeler tyre brand - NEURUN. This marks the company's foray into the motorcycle and scooter tyre market in the country.

Bridgestone India currently has its presence in passenger car, truck and bus segment, and even develops off-road tyres. With the new NEURUN tyre brand, the company is trying to expand its footprint in the country, especially in the high-volume two-wheeler segment. In the international markets, Bridgestone already has a good name in the two-wheeler tyre segment, and has even been a sole tyre supplier for Moto GP.

Currently, NEURUN two-wheeler tyres will be available in 5 sizes. Bridgestone claims that this range of tyres will cater to 70% of the current market demand. The company might introduce more sizes in the future depending on the response.

Bridgestone NEURUN tyres will be available from August 2016 at the company's existing tyre dealer network in the country.

Looking at picture above & other news sites, these seem to be in 10" for scooters & in 17" & 18" for motorcycles (for front & rear wheels). Hope they also add 12" for scooters (TVS Wego, Jupiter).
Looking at tread pattern, these seem to be targeted towards commuter 100cc segment. Even press release states about 'high volume 2-wheeler' segment.

It's a bit suspicious that a brand/company like Bridgestone instead of introducing 2 Wheeler tyres under their own brand want to bring in some new brand which no one has ever heard of.

My suspicion is that these are low-ish quality, cheap tyres made and sold under a different brand so that the Bridgestone brand isnt affected.

And I personally do not like this thinking. Why not give India good quality tyres that Bridgestone supplies to the rest of the world? Why this step motherly treatment?
