Kanpur based, Lohia Motors Limited has launched Select 4 stroke scooter for the Delhi NCR territory. LML Vespa was for a long time one of the best sellers in the country known for its speed, stability, power and pickup. With the end of scooter’s regime, LML stopped the production of scooters like every other brand.
One has to however agree to the fact that Scooters are indeed the best form of family commute especially for a country like India where a family of 3 or even 4 along with the baggage can manage to commute despite the fact that it is legally a wrong practice.
P S Choudhary, Head, Sales and Marketing, LML informed Bike India that the company looks forward to open the sales of Select 4 in the states of Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh by the end of June 2011. He conservatively anticipates selling around 250 – 300 units of Select4 in Delhi NCR within next 2 to 3 months.
Looks wise the new LML 4-stroke scooter comes with excellent body graphics, cushioned backrest for better ergonomics and a big taillight for attractive appeal. The new handle bar design reflects new style, and there is improved speedometer with utility box. The seat saddle is spacious providing satisfying riding experience.
