"Our premium segment bikes such as FZ series and YZF-R15 are doing very well. Our powerful commuter SZ bike and entry level YBR 125 and YBR 110 bikes also continue to grow at a brisk pace which shows that we have been able to meet the customers’ expectations with a strong product portfolio. We expect our strong showing to continue in the coming months."
