  14. 14. But why are all “desi” motorcycles segmented ascommuters here? Motorcycles in developed markets are therefore segmented for the purpose that they are designed for eg: Super Sports for track/road racing, Cruiser for riding in a relaxed manner on open highways. The main purpose for buying/riding a motorcycle in India is to commute. Bikes like the Karizma ZMR, Pulsar 220 and R15 may have an element of fun but at the end of the day they are just basicallly glorified commuters. I mean how many neighbors/friends/relatives do you know in India who prefer to commute in a 4 wheeler/car and rides a motorcycle occasionally just for fun? 14
