    Infact uptill early 1980 India had only three Bike makers

    YEZDI - 250 cc classic and Roadking
    Enfield - Bullet Std 350 and deluxe
    Escorts- Rajdoot 175

    Pluse there were some scooter makers

    Bajaj - Bajaj 150, super, chetak etc
    Maharashtra scooters - Priya
    Scooter Ind ltd - Vijay super

    Besides that there were many moped producers

    Kinetic - luna
    TVS - TVS 50
    Hero - Majestic
    Atlas - Atlas 50
    Enfield - Silver plus, Explorer
    Yezdi - Colt

    There were some others who came and faded away like API which made Lambretta but then switched to three wheelers. There was BSA Bond and Suraj Diesel 325 cc bikes. Then there was a Ludhiana based bike maker making Yamaha stepthru 80cc bikes with self start.

    As China declared its liberalisation policy in 1978 India also went shopping after some time for the Japanese technology.

    There started the rivelery among business houses to get the best. Munjals of Hero motors fought a fierce battle with Bajaj to secure Honda CD 100 4 stroke technology and bajaj could get 2 stroke Kawasaki 100 cc only. ( It is learnt that Hero group took their somewhat illitrate technician who was technically far more sound than the Bajaj's engineer and the Head of Honda Motors took a test for technical aptitude in which Hero motors technician went way ahead impressing upon Mr. Honda) Escorts got Yamaha RX 100 2 stroke and TVS group went for Suzuki 100 cc also a two stroke bike.

    Hero motors reincarnated itself as Hero Honda motors and came out to be a clear winner with a technologically superior bike returning 75-80 kmpl and keeping ulitimate quality standards ( bikes produced in 1986 by HH are still running on roads )

    Escorts Yamaha RX 100 was a preffered choice of young people with an ultimate reliabilty and a typical Yamaha style statement. They also went on producing Yamaha RD 350 twin cylinder/ six geared bike locally which attained a cult figure among Indian youth and still almost all the machines produced are maintained by Yamaha lovers across the country ( they even have Rajdoot 350 clubs )
    Upwards Onwards, when the going gets tough the Tough gets going.

    These Japanese bikes ruined Indian king of roads YEZDI of Mysore ( My father always called it TIPU SULTAN of Mysore )which was ruling the roads since 1960s. It was a very nice bike with 250cc twin exhaust 2 stroke bike with 16" wheels. It was a very reliable bike returning anything between 32-35 kmpl. It was said that Yezdi once produced never dies. It was immortal in those days. Quality was superb. They had tech. back up from Jawa of Czeckslovakia but later severed ties with jawa to improve Jawa 250 into Yezdi classic and Road king. They also produced a twin cylinder Yezdi 350 bike for some time
    But the company was not big enough to fight jap invasion and tried its best to keep it up with an all new 175 cc yezdi in Jap styling but fuel economy and new tech. fever made Yezdi run out of race and the company gave away to strikes and lock outs ( Jawa/yezdi was my first love as my fathers first bike was a 1966 Jawa gifted by his Grand father after competing in XI ( called Preph)

    It was the first bike to have kick starter *** gear shift lever in one. You need to master to kick the bike first making compression and then a solid kick to put the bike into life with a typical exhaust note of trruin- truien....nnnnn and if you remove the silencer jallies/ bansari then it would get so loud like tronnn--tronnnn waking all the Mohalla walas in the night.

    Then there was our age old Enfield bullet which is still going strong producing more than 3 lac bikes last year. It was technologically perfect and upto date due to its 4 stroke tech and also simple design. It too beared the pains of jap intrusion as its original amal/ming carbs could return only 20-25 kmpl but then came japanese technology for rescuing the bike with MIKUNI collaborating with an Indian company making new gen carbs. the new carb came helping with fuel economy figure improving upto 38-42 kmpl mark. That was enough to make a bike of that size survive the onslaught.

    Other bike maker Escorts were producing Rajdoot 175 cc bike with technology from CEKOP of Poland ( I could not help myself digging CEKOP name making bikes ever, on net ). Escorts is still producing the bike and it is quite popular in its modern avtar among rural masses.

    Escorts utilized Yamaha technology to improve upon Rajdoot to give it an electronic ignition new carburetter ( Infact it was this very carb of Mikuni produced by MIKCARB in India for Rajdoot which silenced death bells for the Enfield BULLET as it found its way into the Bullet very simply without any modification ( except for making a side cutting of mounting bracket holes.

    Rajdoot has a typical Earls front fork with twin separate shockers ( as of rear shockers ) attached. It is also a very reilable and quality machine requiring very low maintaince and could be used as rough as you can. Its market is in Rural Haryana and Western Uttar Pardesh. But slowly it is giving away to 4 stroke bikes.

    Nobody ever talked about YEZDI having any German parentage.

    Infact, it was JAWA of Czeckslovakia, which had technical backup for the YEZDI.

    I am not sure if JAWA had inputs from any German Parent firm.

    If you have any further information, I would be glad to learn.

    1) One US $ dollar =45-46 Indian Rupees

    2) Petrol prices =On average it is 44.06/- in North and
    Rs. 1/- to 2/- plus for rest of India.

    3) Diesel prices =Rs. 30.84/- in North India and Rs.1/-
    plus in rest of India.

    4) CNG prices =CNG is popular in Delhi or some big cities
    only. At the moment I am not sure about its prices

    5) Baleno 1600 =5,73,000/- minus dealers discount for more than 45000/- still very few takers.

    6 ) Optra 1.6 =7,72,000/- minus discounts ranging from 80,000/- to 90,000/-. I ve heard that they have reduced the rates even further.
