Bridgestone India has now entered the two-wheeler tyre market with brand ‘NEURUN’ to cater to motorcycles and scooters. Bridgestone is the second major tyre manufacturer to enter the lucrative two-wheeler industry this year. Earlier this year Apollo Tyres launched ACTI brand to supply two-wheeler tyres.

An entry into the high volume two-wheeler market in India helps Bridgestone provide a wider product range and services to customers. The company looks forward to this exciting new phase and hopes to expand with subsequent growth in the market.
