PREFACE

A man can become perfect with a perfect knowledge and experience. As a student of business management, we have studied many theories in the classroom but any professional degree is incomplete without practical knowledge of concerned field. And the same case is with management studies, management is incomplete without knowing practical application of theories studied. I have experienced and understood the practical importance of these theories on this training. More books and theoretical knowledge can¶t help you in any field whether it is management or technical. Only thing can help you is practical knowledge. This development day provides a golden opportunity to the students for getting a perfect knowledge and experience. I come to know how the management of company is actually being done. How decisions are made? How people behave and decide what to purchase ? As a part of my learning in management field and requirement of PGDM program, I have been given an opportunity to grab practical knowledge in the area of marketing and I had selected ³BAJAJ´ . I have made my best efforts to get knowledge and experience. During the day, I had collected necessary information, and I present all the necessary information to understand well.

A consumer is the person who is going to give the actual business to company.

In 1885 Gottelieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach the German inventors created the first motorbike that sported a petrol -powered engine.Industry Profile:History of Motorbikes Your heart might thump faster when you watch those motorbike stunts on silver screen or for that matter you will be simply be fascinated when you must have seen Bollywood hunk John Abraham on a Suzuki Hayabusa or watching the latest version of your favourite bike in a parking lot that motivates you to own one. Thought there are previou s versions of the motorcycle that relied on steam power and charcoal. Be it a low-end bike or a high-end one all have the same potential to drive you crazy. Let¶s go back« The origin of motorbike The history of motorbikes drifts us back to the middle of 19th century when the bicycle was modified into a motorbike with a very few mechanisms that earned the name of a µmotorcycle¶. B ut we hardly give a thought to how these amazing man-made metal machines were created that are tirelessly serving us for years. The first motorcycle that was sold for the common man was in 1984 developed by Hildebrand and Wolfmuller and since then there was no stopping as the bicycle makers started designing motorcycles. including some joyous rides. The Europeans devised many versions of the motorcycle and eventually motorcycle designing moved to America. Bikes have always given us precious moments. cruising through the traffic snarl with ease and making all four-wheeler guys fume with fury (ah! Envy we know!) or accompanied you as a best friend on those rainy and sultry days. 9 . There is surely an emotional attachment for every bike owner and a story to narrate about his riding experience.

The bike soon touched fame and popularity and many Indian homes greeted the Royal Enfield bikes. The followers Looking at the fast growing motorbike market in India. 10 . In 1955 the first ever motorbike was bought out by Royal Enfield Company that was a 350cc powered engine popularly known as Bullet. which arrived in India to aid the army and police officials for improving their patrolling duties. The bike entered the Indian arena rather very late and was launched out of necessity. This Bullet got its original form in Chennai. When did India get its first bike? Motorbikes have become such an integral part of very average Indian family so it is all the more intriguing to explore the history of bikes in the country.In 1902 the bicycle maker Triumph installed a Belgian made engine and launched their first motorcycle and the following year Harley Davi dson came up with their bikes. the Japan ese two-wheeler icon Yamaha launched their series of superior bikes for the Indian consumer and was ranked the numero uno for almost a decade. The Rajdoot ruled the Indian roads for a long period. The bike scene gaining momentum motivated the Escort Motor Company to launch their version called Rajdoot that proved to more efficient and fulfilled most requirements of the middle -class Indian families.
