    If NS can open sugar and cement trade with India, why cant he open automobile trade with India. Top Indian giants like Bajaj can be invited to setup plant in Pakistan, not only will this raise competition and Pakistani bikers could start seeing some quality products but also will create jobs.
    On topic a stunning looking bike.

    This is an amazing machine.

    I am banging my head against the wall for INAZUMA's launch. Can you believe such an outstanding performance at such a low price.

    I mean, how the hell on earth could Pak Suzuki do that?

    They are exporting dukes to us and EU. And plan is to export to .JP as s well. This bike must be extremely high quality. And the price is so reasonable.

    the price is low because it is manufactured locally in India to reduce the costs. the Inazuma is being imported as a whole machien by PS. but still this is amazingly good value for money

    With all due respect bro. who says Rs. 675,000 is a good price for a sukzuki inzuma and it worth spending.... talking about KTM it is the best in class that is why it is being manufactured in india and being imported in the whole world, because it is reasonably prices and fast machine with latest tech. duke 200 is priced 1.3. aftre converting the according to forex still cannot beat the price and performance. but humrai bc government wont let us have these.

    i also wanted to do this but some one told me it will cost around 5-6 lack till reaching in pakistn. ku k inidia se import nahi hoga. you have to bring to dubai from india and then to pak. or get it directly from malysia or indonesia. but prices aree high there. so same effect hoga.

    bottom line it s difficult and expensive

    KTM manufactures all of its bikes in india now to reduce costs and secondly because most of it is now owned by Bajaj, so the parent company wouldve made some cost cuts in the bikes so we arent sure the Bike is total KTM. the pak pricer of inazuma is competitive with its international price. The deluxe we get in 1.16lakh was once available in UK for around 2000 pounds. so you can imagine what price cuts local manufacturing brings.
