Our display this time will give a clear picture of where this company is going, where we are headed. There will be some concepts, even including those which will soon see commercialization, a complete range of bike and scooters”.
Emphasizing on company's initiatives on research and development, Munjal stated, “These are developed with our own technology and also some in collaboration with our partners." Moreover, global and domestic distributors for the event have been invited to this upcoming event, and going by sources, it is said that company shall organize riding experience sessions.
