Following the price increase and inflation trend in the market, locally manufactured motorcycles are also getting expensive. United Motorcycles, which is Pakistan’s most selling national brand is getting expensive by 3,000 rupees.
United Motorcycles manufactures 70,100 and 125cc motorcycles locally. These bikes are usually sold on installments and a big number of people purchase them across Pakistan.
Local or Chinese motorcycles were choice of common man to fulfil his daily commuting needs but the increase in process of Honda and Japanese motorcycle forced local companies to increase prices.
Let’s hope these local companies also start an innovation race and develop good motorcycles which are also affordable.
