Suzuki Motorcycle India to Partner With Suzuki Maruti for Expertise & Business Support
Recently, Suzuki Motorcycles India ended the partnership it had with TVS. Correspondingly, a new partnership was built between Suzuki Motorcycle India, and Maruti Suzuki. The new partnership with Maruti Suzuki brings a wider distribution channel for Suzuki Motorcycles India.
Initially, Suzuki Motorcycles India will put its motorcycles on display at 25 Suzuki Maruti Outlets across India.
Satoshi Uchida, managing director of Suzuki Motorcycles India, said, “As a conscious effort, we are trying to get good Maruti Suzuki car dealers on board to sell our motorcycles. Many of the Maruti Suzuki Vendors are eager to sell Suzuki super bikes like the Hayabusa.” Also mentioning, “The same set of Maruti Suzuki’s vendors can be used for many components to bring costs down.”
Additionally, Uchida said some executives from Maruti Suzuki are working at the motorcycle wing of the company in key operations like plant production and purchasing. Recently, the Suzuki Motorcycle corporate office got set up in the same building as Maruti Suzuki which is based in Vasant Kunj – Delhi.
Currently, Maruti Suzuki’s dealership network spreads across almost 1,500 Indian cities. But, the total Maruti Suzuki dealer outlet number is set to surpass 2,000 by the year 2020.
