India is one of the largest manufacturers of two-wheelers in the world. For us at Suzuki, it offers immense opportunities for growth and it will be my endeavor once again to further consolidate our base here in India, Satoshi Uchida, Company Head, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd, said.
“As our global operations experienced a paradigm shift in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, Suzuki Motorcycle India has also been taking various initiatives to align with the `New Normal’. The launch of our online sales module and the `Suzuki at your Doorstep’ program have been our successful efforts in that direction.
“However, unfortunately with the second COVID-19 wave, the pandemic in India is now getting worse than what we saw last year. But we believe that our business in India will bounce back faster than expected, and I will be able to fully leverage our past experience of the Indian market once the situation gets better.”
