Title of The Project

A comparative study between Bajaj & Hero Honda.

Literature Review
Mahantesh Sabarad, senior analyst at Fortune Equity Brokers India Ltd, said, "It will be
difficult with just too brands—Discover and Pulsar—and it will be a difficult task to
climb a mountain of 30 per cent share and Hero Honda too won’t to be sitting still.

Kapil Arora,automobile industry analyst at Ernst & Young,said the entry of newer
models would hit the existing dominating brands."Its unrealistic to expect continued
dominance by one player indefinitely.Other players clearly have an opportunity to gain
market share if they bring in the right product at the right price,"

Anil Dua,Hero Honda's marketing and sales vice-president,said the company was alert to
threats from rivals."We never dismiss competition.But I also want to add that things are
going the way we had predicted."

Bajaj has been regaining its lost ground after it did a u-turn and was forced to refocus on
the 100cc segment.Bajaj's volumes were crashing miserably after it announced its
intention to exit this segment.The new strategy appears to be working well for the
company as its market share in this big-volume segment has been steadily increasing.
PR LOG(press release)22nd April 2010

Accordind to my opinion it’s Hero Honda's rural penetration that will be the big hurdle
for Bajaj and even the market leader knows that and my project will help to find the
market share of two differenr company.
