We have been bringing to you perspectives and analyses of what products manufacturers have in store for us, the consumers, on the basis of their history, their presence at various editions of the Auto Expo and specifically this years exposition.  We have covered all big manufacturers and those who had product launches or unveiling of significance.  There are others who have not been consistent participants at the Expo but have been there this time or there are others who have been there consistently but did not show anything of great significance.  This is the final article on manufacturers who could or will spring something good for us the consumers in the very near future.

In the two wheelers notably the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 in all black caught the attention but what is of greater interest is the Cafe Racer which we hope will hit the market sooner than later.Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 launch

The other significant piece of news in the two wheelers section is the coming of Vespa this time on its own steam with parent company Piaggio.  The Vespa LX125 will be launched at the end of this financial year and it looks stunning.
