One of which is Krisaki motorcycles, which has a range of cheap bikes and scooters of different segments. According to the company, they have high quality offerings in 125 to 1,700 cc segments. Based in Kerala, Krisaki is planning to establish presence in ever-growing Indian two-wheeler market in coming July with a diverse product range in 125 to 800 cc classes.

Yes, we know what you are thinking. Even we are thinking of the same thing. How will this unheard of company managed to launch itself in India, which is a brand conscious market. Most of their products look like photoshopped of existing products in the market, while their official website hardly gives an impression of a motorcycle manufacturer. Not only the website is difficult to navigate, but there are spelling mistakes!
Though Krisaki says they plan on launching itself by July 2015 in India, we think it is highly unlikely.
