While Suzuki’s January sales are down, it’s evident the company is keen in inching its way through the scooter market. For now, there are more Suzuki scooters in the top 10 list than ever before. Since not all Indian two-wheeler manufacturers participate in the traditional scooter space here, the space, though small, can be quite competitive.
