Bajaj Auto's recent recognition as the world's most valuable maker of two-wheelers with market capitalization of over $13.6 billion is unlikely to surprise many in Bangladesh given its undisputed leadership in the country's two-wheeler market backed with a strong association with the reputed Uttara Motors Ltd.
This development comes as India's largest two-wheeler exporter completes 75 years of operation.
Commenting on the milestone, Milind P Bade, vice president of international business at Bajaj Auto India, said the company exports motorcycles to more than 70 countries across the globe. It enjoys market leadership in key countries on account of its sharp product strategies and focus on differentiated customer experience, making Bajaj the most valuable two-wheeler company across the globe.
"Bangladesh is one of the largest and fastest growing motorcycle and three-wheeler market in the world. Bajaj is committed to this market with our esteemed partner Uttara Motors to keep on delivering world-class products to our customers, backed with the best-in-class customer experience," Bade added.
Matiur Rahman, chairman and managing director of Uttara Motors, said he is delighted with the news of Bajaj Auto becoming the most valuable two-wheeler company in the world.
"We have been associated with Bajaj from the late 70s and now, we have established a motorcycle manufacturing plant in Dhaka, where we can manufacture more than 250,000 units annually, including high-end motorcycles," Rahman said.
The demand for sports motorcycles is increasing in Bangladesh as customers get the best in technology, safety and performance from premium bikes such as Pulsar.
