wheelers have grown by 15% from 6.57 million in 2004/2005 to 7.57 million in 2005/2006. The buoyant Indian
economy with a growth rate of around 8% per annum is further expected to fuel the growth of two wheelers in the

scooterettes and mopeds have shown a negative growth or remained stagnant. The two-wheelers have penetrated
7% of rural house hold and 24% of urban markets, thus it leaves an immense scope for the market to grow.

he composition of the industry consists of motorcycles, scooters and mopeds. Over the past decade, there

(~34%) and TVS Motors (~24%). This is the most competitive segment as all the 3players relatively have a
higher presence in the same. But this segment continues to be the worst hit due to the credit unavailability
and global slowdown. The industry has shown a CAGR of ~15% from FY04-FY07 on account of finance

leading to a large number of two wheelers added to the roads everyday. Indian roads in most cities, villages and
towns are narrow. Two-wheelers allow people to navigate such roads easily.
