About Suzuki Bikes – The History
Suzuki Bikes are not new to India. Yes, they made their entry in 2006 under the aegis of Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd. However, the Suzuki brand was already in the market in the form of TVS Suzuki. Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd was their third automotive venture in India after Maruti Suzuki (1982) and TVS Suzuki (1982 to 2001). Of course, Maruti Suzuki is a four-wheeler brand.
Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd is a subsidiary of the Japanese automotive firm, Suzuki Motor Corporation.

Today, Suzuki has 17 motorcycle brands and 4 scooter models running on the Indian toads with full pomp and splendour. Suzuki is also a leading manufacturer of sports and adventure bikes in India. There are a couple of superbike models as well that cost more than INR 10 lakh each.
The TVS Suzuki plant was in Chennai and Hosur whereas the Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd. has its plant in a sprawling 37-acre plot in Gurugram, Haryana. This company can manufacture 540,000 units on an annual basis. Suzuki bikes, especially the Suzuki 125 cc bikes are popular with the younger generation.

Suzuki emphasises a lot on quality whereby they ensure that their motorcycles and scooters are not only reliable on the roads but are also fuel efficient at the same time.
The Acquisition and the Expansion
Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd. is a fully-owned subsidiary of Suzuki Motor Corporation. Suzuki Motor Corporation had already tried its hand in the Indian market with a joint venture with the TVS Group in 1982. It was around the same time that Suzuki entered into a fruitful partnership with Maruti India Ltd. for the manufacture of four wheelers.
The TVS Suzuki bikes were a rage in the southern part of the country. This plant had its manufacturing unit in Hosur. TVS Suzuki was the largest manufacturers of mopeds in India at that time. Every second vehicle you saw on the roads in Tamil Nadu was a TVS moped. Suzuki ended its collaboration with TVS in 2001.
They subsequently opened a 100% owned subsidiary company by the name of Suzuki Motorcycles India Pvt. Ltd. in 2006. Since 2006, this company has been manufacturing both scooters and motorcycles of high quality.
In addition to the standard Suzuki 125 cc and Suzuki 150 cc bikes, Suzuki manufactures some of the best Suzuki sports bikes, like the Suzuki Hayabusa. You also have some of the best all-terrain bikes, like Suzuki Intruder M1800R, and the adventure bikes like Suzuki RMZ250 and RMZ450.
