Modified On Oct 29, 2018 By Gajraj Singh Bhati
With the increasing demand of technology, Indian consumers have various expectations from two-wheeler manufacturers. Whether it’s styling, comfort, power or capacity, bikers from India have a lot to look for before spending on any particular machine. Other than dealerships, the bikes which became a hit in their early days are now searching a shelter to park under. Just like riches to rags, the best sellers of those days too don’t have enough potential to impress the consumers now. Listing few machines that were discontinued by the company in 2015, the reasons given are not impressive, but it seems that the major step company’s have taken were due to lack of demand, high price and lesser output, old and unimpressive styling etc.
