Kinetic Motor has acquired the global manufacturing and marketing licence from the Italian motorbikes maker Italjet for its bikes. The company will export these bikes on behalf of Italjet, and it will share revenues with the Italian company in the form of commissions and royalties.


I wonder if this will include the Grifon and Bazooka?  I'm sure it is not part of the agreement but Kinetic does import Hyosung bikes into India.  If the price point was high enough it may not eat into Hyosung's business and may add credibility to the Hyosung name.

"These are popular and established scooters with world-standard design and specifications; and at Indian manufacturing prices, they could very well turn the whole global two-wheeler market on its head," it said.
