The Kherki Dhaula plant situated in Gurugram has been the one to be able to roll out this milestone.
- Suzuki currently has 12 two-wheelers on sale in India.
- Of these, five are small capacity bikes and four are scooters.
- Three, meanwhile, are big bikes.
Suzuki Motorcycle India, Suzuki Motor Corporation's two-wheeler division, has produced its 7 millionth unit at the Kherki Dhaula plant in Gurugram. The 7 millionth vehicle was a yellow Suzuki V-Strom SX. The quarter-litre adventure bike has received a lot of love all over India due to its extremely versatile nature, earning its place as a one, do-it-all motorcycle in the garage of a lot of people out there. Tractable enough to take on your city duties but quick enough to make highway stints a lot of fun.
In February 2006, Suzuki Motorcycle India began operations in India. "In the fiscal year ending March 2023, we achieved a record sale of 9.38 lakh units and year-on-year growth of 24.3 percent as compared to FY 2021-'22," said Kenichi Umeda, managing director of Suzuki Motorcycle India.
Suzuki Motorcycle India is the sole manufacturer of the Suzuki V-Strom SX, Suzuki Gixxer SF 250, Suzuki Gixxer 250, Suzuki Gixxer SF, Suzuki Access 125, Suzuki Avenis, Suzuki Burgman Street, and Suzuki Burgman Street EX. The Japan based two-wheeler maker also sells some of its international big-bike models in India, including the V-Strom 650XT, Suzuki Katana, and the renowned Hayabusa. These large-capacity premium bikes are delivered as kits to India and assembled there.
The brand has, and always will be synonymous to making sweet yet some of the best bikes in the world. While the existing bikes are fantastic, the erstwhile GSX-R1000 was one such example of a fine bike that Suzuki had. It was incredibly easy to ride yet very very capable. There was also the GSX-S750, a screamer of an inline-four engine, one that screamed its way to the redline with absolutely no effort.
