Mahindra and Mahindra is a well-known name in the field of automobile manufacturing in India as well as many other global markets. However, until recently they were known mainly for the excellent cars that they made and sold at various parts of the world. But now, Mahindra has forayed into the field of two-wheeler manufacturing and has made its presence known with some of the most economical and powerful bikes in the market.
The two-wheeler manufacturing business is a thriving business in India, thanks to its large population. As many of these people cannot afford to buy a car, they end up buying a bike to meet their travel needs. In addition to this, the traffic congested roads and lanes of India are best suited for a bike and not as much for a car. This is where companies like Mahindra with their in-depth knowledge of Indian market can succeed. Although the company took up the two-wheeler business rather late, in 2008, it has been able to do well in the industry.
Mahindra has a manufacturing plant at Pithampur in Madhya Pradesh. It is from here that the various bikes like Duro DZ, Flyte, Kine, Rodeo RZ, Centuro, Pantero, Mojo 300cc and Cevalo 125cc among others roll out.
