Initially the company will bring the models as Completely Knocked Down (CKD) units. “We want to create our own niche. In India, there is space in the cruiser segment where you only have Royal Enfield today. The Harley and Triumph models are too expensive.

We expect this to touch four lakh units in five years, with our company having a 10 per cent  share,” said Rajeev Mishra, director, UM India.   Related Posts Upcoming cars in October KTM to launch Duke 200 and Duke 390 with full fairings KTM RC series full faired motorcycles-Images Bajaj to launch Pulsar 350 Victory motorcycles to launch bikes in India (Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) The post UM motorcycles to launch Renegade series by October appeared first on .
