Suzuki Motorcycle India reaches 8-million-unit milestone in cumulative two-wheeler production | Autocar Professional


Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd. (SMIPL), the two-wheeler subsidiary of Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan, today celebrated the landmark of producing 8 million cumulative two-wheelers in India.

Journey to 8-million-units production

SMIPL began its operations in India in February 2006 with mass production of its flagship scooter Suzuki Access 125 at its production facility located at Kherki Dhaula in Gurgaon. SMIPL achieved its first 4 million production milestone within 13 years. Building upon this success and growing at more than double the speed, SMIPL manufactured the next 4 million units in less than 6 years.

Notably, SMIPL achieved its 8 million production milestone in the 19th year of its operation with the last 1 million units added in just one year.

Kenichi Umeda, Managing Director, Suzuki Motorcycle India said, “Reaching the 8-million-unit production milestone is a testament to SMIPL’s manufacturing capability. I express my gratitude to our customers and business partners for their continued support & trust in the brand and we remain dedicated to further delighting them through continuous efforts for enhanced after-sales service and improved hospitality.”

SMIPL currently manufactures a diverse range of scooters and motorcycles for Indian as well as international markets. Its domestic line-up ranges from 125cc scooters (Access 125, Avenis, Burgman Street & Burgman Street SX) to 150cc-250cc motorcycles (Gixxer & Gixxer SF, Gixxer 250 & Gixxer 250 SF and V-Strom SX) and Big Bikes ranging from 800cc & above (recently launched V-Strom 800 DE, Katana & Hayabusa).
