Bookings for the upcoming official launches of the Zontes and Moto Morini bikes start at Rs. 10,000.
There is no denying that the world market is dominated by Chinese-made motorcycles. Most of the time, for good reasons, manufacturers like Zontes, CFMOTO, Benelli, and even Moto Morini have been in the news a lot lately. This week, we’ll travel to India, where two Chinese-origin businesses strive to dominate the highly competitive luxury market.
Zontes And Moto Morini Bikes
Zontes and Moto Morini are two Chinese manufacturers that provide high-quality, reasonably priced models. On the other hand, Zontes is renowned for operating in the small to mid-displacement category and focusing its solutions on 350cc platforms. The 650cc sector is where Moto Morini, an Italian company that makes all its products in China, takes things to the next level. Through Adishwar Auto Ride India (AARI), which already manages the local distribution of Benelli and Kyiv, Zontes and Moto Morini have entered the Indian market.
In the coming weeks, the new motorcycles manufactured by Zontes and Moto Morini are expected to go on sale. Also, AARI has started accepting reservations for model lines from the two manufacturers.
