Suzuki Pakistan VERSUS Suzuki India

INDIAN motorcycle market is decades ahead of ours' thanks to the great competition in the Indian motorcycle market. Motorcycling scene in Pakistan is quite pathetic overall. Honda has the major market share being the giant present here for quite some time now. Although Suzuki is also present in the market since long but they never targeted to capture the major market. It would not be out of place to say that GS150 is perhaps the only bike by Suzuki that sold the most during all this time but unfortunately it does not have too many satisfied customers.

Coming back to the topic, Suzuki India, as is the general trend, is decades ahead of Suzuki Pakistan. Compare Indian GS150R to that of GS150 in Pakistan:

Pakistan's GS150:

It's been q while since GS150 was first introduced in Pakistan. Prices kept on increasing but the quality was compromised while the bike received only cosmetic changes, hardly any improvement.

On the other hand, India updated the GS150R with the GSXR155, an even more stylish bike with great features and stunning looks. GSXR has literally challenged the established FZ16 market in India and some consider it even more stylish than the FZ.

YAMAHA in Pakistan

IT"S been more than three years now when we first heard about Yamaha Japan coming to Pakistan. Well, guess what, it's coming soon with some exciting bikes. There is a great hope that the bikes will be powered by EFI engines, first time in Pakistani motorbike market. I am hopeful that Yamaha will be a great success with the models they plan to introduce, no I shall not reveal the model name yet ;) Let's just wait a little bit more :D
Yamaha first came to Pakistan somewhere around the end of 1970s. The first Pakistani model arrived in the year 1984, I learnt riding on an 84, it was one tough horse. The YB100 ruled in its time till Yamaha was replaced by DYL that brought bikes with Chinese engines and only used the name of Yamaha. 2015, however, is going to bring a revolution in the Pakistani motorcycle market and I am looking forward to it, already decided which model to buy :)
