In the past we have talked about some of the bikes in the south Asian market that we want in India. Particularly Thailand. Thailand also has an extensive scooter market. There are a few scooters in that market that have the potential to do good in the Indian market. The list below consist of 5 Scooter from Thailand which we want in India.
The Yamaha Aerox is a scooter which if introduced now will have no competitors in any aspect. The design is very unique. Sure it does look like a bike turned into a scooter but to some extent it is. The engine is straight from the Yamaha R15 and it does continue to have VVA and liquid cooling. Also, the scooter gets fatter tyres and twin suspension at the rear which is rare in scooters in India. This surely will be a costly scooter but if it is placed in the ballpark of some 150cc commuter bikes it might see some good success.
Yamaha NMax is a maxi-scooter with a sporty engine. Like the Aerox it uses the 155cc liquid-cooled engine. This increases the performance and also the duration of the service intervals. The NMax will be equivalent to what the R15 is to the 150cc segment of bikes.
Suzuki Burgman 200
The Suzuki Burgman is a scooter that is slowly growing into the minds of people. At first, people thought it was a very huge scooter with a very large footprint. Now to make something looks small without actually making it smaller is done by placing something even bigger around it. Also, the Burgman 200 has even comfortable ergonomics than any other scooter in the market. Also, the 200cc engine will be one of the biggest engines which will be introduced in the Indian scooter market.
Honda Lead 125
Honda Lead is like the Honda Activa 125. We see this scooter to be in the place of the Honda Grazia and Honda Activa. This could be for those who want a sophisticated scooter in the market which also looks stylish but at the same time is uncommon. We expect its pricing to be around Rs 90,000 which will help it to compete with smaller displacement scooter and also help the dealerships to upsell the customers for Activa 6G.
Honda PCX 160
Honda PCX 160 is a maxi scooter that has the power to take on the Aprilia SXR 160. In terms of looks too this bike is very close to that of the Aprilia SXR 160. Being a Honda it will be cheap to maintain offering you performance while keeping your budget in check. If at all this scooter makes to India then it will come in the ball park of Rs 1.5 lakhs.
