    The Kohinoor motorcycle was a product of the Saigols Group of Companies. Their current auto venture is Saigols Qingqi Motors Limited, which resumed production in mid 90s to manufacture 100cc bikes under the 'KMW' marque. KMW stands for Kohinoor Motor Works. Later, they entered into a JV with Qingqi of China and started assembling the Qingqi bikes and three-wheeler motorcycle rickshaws. However, now they are planning to end their partnership with Qingqi, because they have signed an MoU with Bajaj of India to progressively manufacture Bajaj bikes at their plant. This project is waiting approval from the Pakistani govt.

    Now the original Kohinoor bike of 70s.... I had seen its ads in magazines of 60s/70s in my home some 7-8 years ago. I'll have to search for that magazine to get info about that Kohinoor bike, when I go to my home in Dera Ismail Khan. Let's see if I am able to locate it.

    By the way, there were some other local motorcycle brands as well, if some one of you can recall... I remember having seen TV ads of Shahsawar/Shehzore motorcycles in late 80s. I was too young at that time.

    @ Shueyb
    I learnt about Kohinoor from you only!!

    We also have one such motorcycle called "YEZDI" It is still running on the roads but the company perished due to Indo-Jap 100 cc invasion.

    It is best motorcycle I ever witnessed. My dad had one Jawa ( Its predecessor ) way back in 1976 and it was my first love.

    Shergill, And I know about it only because of that magazine ad I had seen!
    We Pakistanis are not very well aware of the history of our auto industry. History needs to be documented.
    We have piles of old magazines in our house in my town Dera Ismail Khan. Currently I'm in Islamabad. It's hard to find that particular issue, but whenever I find it, I will make it a point to scan and send you that ad.

    And I will be so grateful for your gesture.

    Shueyb, you know, you are kinda person I expected from all Pakistanis, My personal experience and relations with all my Muslim friends in Western U.P. are very cordial. I have learnt many a good things ( Habits, tehzeeb and especially Khandani ) from them.

    Revered Rizwi Sahib is my Ideal and inter alia I have learnt coolness from him. Also, he made me inculculate loosing all my ( Beychaini ) before and after big happenings in my life.

    You are just like them, I am really proud of you.
    I adore you my friend and I wish to serve you as a host someday here.
