Since the launch of the first superbike in India in the year 2007, super bike or premium bike is everybody’s dream. But very few people are able to possess such high priced bikes. Superbike giant players such as Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, Ducati and the American superbike maker Harley Davidson, have been successful in influencing a set of people aspiring to own a super bike in India, with their speedy machines.
According to recently published report by TechSci Research “India Premium Motorcycles Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2017” The demand for these super machines in India is emerging not only from the metropolitan cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Pune, but even from the smaller cities such as Indore, Coimbatore, Chandigarh, etc. The number of units sold of these super bikes in India merely stood at 200 in the year 2009, since then, it has been on a sky rocketing height. This segment of bikes is considered to be an extremely niche segment and every unit sold makes a lot of difference in the sales strategies. Though, manufacturers have been surprised by the reported numbers of units sold of super bikes in non metropolitan cities, the metropolitan cities are still leading the sales charts. In the Indian Premium Motorcycle Market, Maharashtra accounted for 25% of the total units sold, followed by Karnataka and Delhi which accounted for 20% and 17% respectively in 2011.
