Suzuki Motorcycle India has been hitting the right notes in India until now with some great products. With more excitement on its way, in the form of upgrades and some new products, the company has shuffled its top management for what seems like a busy year ahead. The bike maker has announced the appointment of Mr. Devashish Handa as the new Vice President for Sales, Marketing & After-Sales. In this capacity, he will be responsible for driving SMIPL’s growth in sales.
The bike maker is rumoured to bring an important update for the now long in tooth Gixxer 150 series. A new 250 cc single cylinder Gixxer is also said to be in the works and could be launched this year. Suzuki’s scooter game has been strong too and we expect some new excitement in that space as well. In the premium space, their brilliant new V-Strom 650 has already been applauded as one of the most exciting buys in its segment. Their new Vice President, Mr. Handa has over 25 years of experience in the Automobile industry in the area of sales & marketing; and of setting-up nascent businesses and growing them by developing a strong network of channel partners, in the commercial vehicle and consumer durable sectors, prior to SMIPL.

He joins us at a stage when Suzuki is in the midst of its most exciting phase in India.
